12th Annual Johnny Appleseed Kids and Family Festival Sept. 26

The Levine Campus Student Government Council and Student Life invite our CPCC family of students, faculty, staff, and administration and their families to our 12th Annual Johnny Appleseed Kids and Family Festival on Wednesday, Johnny AppleseedSeptember 26 (Johnny’s 238th birthday), from 5 until 7 p.m. in the Levine Campus Atrium.

John Chapman, better known as Johnny Appleseed, was born September 26, 1774. He had a great love for all humanity and all living things, and spent much of his life distributing apple trees to the settlers of the American frontier. He loved to tell stories of his adventures to the children he met as he traveled. Johnny Appleseed believed that we must try to live simply and in harmony with the natural world.

Please join us at the Levine Campus Atrium as we celebrate the birthday of one of America’s great frontier heroes. The free festivities begin with the fabulous The Kollard Kings playing some foot-tapping, hand-clapping, down-home tunes on fiddle, banjo, and guitar. We’ll also have storytelling, coloring, games and this year’s fresh crop of apples picked just in time for Johnny’s birthday. Everything is free for our CPCC apple-loving family and their families, including applelicious waffles for dinner and apple pie for dessert.

This event is particularly designed to be a chance for our students with children or students with younger sisters and brothers to bring their families and enjoy a student life activity together.

Please check the Student Life Events Calendar for more events happening this week, including a lunch & learn, voter registration, and a blood drive!
