Cider on Sunday

Volunteers pour freshly-pressed cider through a filter before the juice is put into jugs to be taken home.

It was a bumper crop of people who showed up for the annual Cider on Sunday at the Chetco Valley Historical Society museum in Harbor.

Bushel upon bushel of apples were brought to the event to be squeezed into cider on antique cider presses. 

Three presses — two operated by hand and one powered by an electric motor — were working nonstop, with many people taking home as many as five gallon-sized jugs filled with the freshly-squeeze and filtered cider.

There were also apple fritters being fried as well as apple desserts offered in a bake sale. 

Following a pie contest — judged by Sandy Hislop, Kevin Bane, Ron Gable and Brent Hodges — visitors could sample the pies with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

A total of seven pies were submitted for the contest. Winning the event was Patti Brim. Second place was awarded to Karen Rogers and winning third was Teresa Vanginderin. Her son, Jason Vanginderen was the only entrant in the youth division. 

The Cider on Sunday event began about 20 years ago.

In addition to cider and other apple-related treats, visitors could tour the historical museum housed in a structure built in 1857, the oldest in southern Curry County, as well as walk around the grounds.
