Springville Apple Festival 2016

Apple Festival T-Shirt Design by Sue Marcotte Throughout this Program, you’ll find many references to local artists. Indeed, Springville has had a vibrant art colony since the sixties when they were considered the hippy artists. Artists spring from any number of places and professions. Some are hobbyists and others have made it professionally. One who incorporated both into her life is Sue Marcotte. A retired art and science teacher in Porterville, Sue grew her interest in art over a thirty-eight year teaching career, creating and directing art projects for her students including murals. Besides creating art, Sue has worked diligently on administrative projects like the Foothills Art Show for which she was the chair for many years. That was a juried art show featuring amateur and professional artists and children’s art that ran for more than 50 years. Eventually, the show ended, but has reappeared as a segment of the Apple Festival known as Artisans Village.

You will also see Sue’s talents on display on the official T-Shirt of the Apple Festival as she has become the official designer for the Festival. That smiling horse is all Sue’s. Sue has branched out from painting and silk screening to an entire new genre ….. art quilts – known to some as fabric art. A member of a local club, the Sew n’ Sews, “I found my calling in art quilts rather than traditional quilts.” Sue is also a member of the “Dancing Threads” of the Porterville Art Association and newest of all, “Loose Threads,” a California Art Quilt Guild. Thread painting is coming into its own with more and more classes and an appreciation for the artistic side of quilting. Sue still works in acrylics and silk painting and has been known to take on commissioned work. You can also find her work displayed at Fair Finds in Springville and the Porterville Art Association in downtown Porterville.

Look for the Artisans Village at the Festival and you will find it’s grown as talented Good Luck to you, Sue, and to your fellow artists representing all modes of arts and artists at Artisan Village. crafts including Sue Marcotte’s booth have flocked to the Festival.

A Very Special Thank You

Hailing from the mountains of central California, Keith Crain has a love for all things old. Whether It’s buildings, stories, or music. The goal is to transport listeners to another time and another place. If you enjoy old folk and cowboy songs then you will be pleased with what you hear. When you’re a guitar player with a name like Keith Richard Crain, there is an expectation that you will emulate the riff heavy rocking style of your namesake. The name inscribes certain characteristics to you. People believe you should wear pounds of scarves, a wallet chain, and a skull ring. Crain likes to buck expectations though. Crain is a soft-spoken guy in Levis, a dusty button up, and a page boy hat. He has the soul of a folkie and is entranced with the mythology of the American cowboy. Crain’s debut EP, The Gail Demos, delves in the life of a cowboy. He deals with horses and horse breaking on “Hitting the Trails Tonight,” and “Skyball Paint.” Crain’s no one trick pony though; he also explores the feelings of sorrow and loneliness after the loss of a loved one on “She’s Gone,” and he mines the struggles of love with “Runnin’ to Blame,” and “It’s All Over Now.” To top it off, he throws in a classic folk song in the making with “Wild Mountain Thyme.” Crain’s guitar picking has a laid-back style, but it is evident that he is a skilled player. His voice is strong with a gentle edge. His lyrics are poignant stories ranging from the humor of trying to tame that untamable horse to the heart break of staring at the bed were your loved one used to lie. This is modern folk music at its finest. It is folk music that feels like an outdoor party on a summer day where the guys drink cold Bud Light, the women glide through the hot dry air in their gingham dresses, and the little ones play tag through the yard in overalls and chocolate ice cream stained faces. Frankly, Crain’s brand of folk feels like home. It’s a hat that isn’t the flashiest in the place but is broken in to perfectly fit the contours of your head. It’s a warm blanket fresh out of the dryer on a cold day. That is what sets Crain’s folk apart from the others: it’s comforting, it’s enveloping, it’s beautiful in its rustic homespun way.

Springville’s VFW POST 9499 The “Famous VFW Apple Burrito” The “Famous VFW Apple Burrito” is now a very successful product and represents the Post’s biggest fund raiser. The Post mandate is to support Veterans, Widows of Veterans and Children of Veterans. The Springville VFW Post 9499 does that by funding a Porterville Community College endowment for qualified Veterans, donating to the Veterans home, disaster relief when needed, and the VFW blood donation account. The Post also supports local schools with the VFW National Essay Contest and scholarship monies to the graduation class at Springville School. They continue to look for ways to benefit Veterans and our local community.

The Springville Mountain Lions’ Club booth is located in Springville Memorial Park on the north side, next to the Tulare County Sheriff’s Office and Fire Station. The “Lions” have been participating in the Springville Apple Festival since its inception in 1980, and has been in the same location as it is at this Festival, in the Springville Memorial Park. Lions’ club members serve up their annual traditional breakfast starting at 7:00 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday of the Festival. The breakfast menu consists of pancakes and sausage along with applesauce and a beverage. Guests enjoy eating their breakfast while visiting with family, friends, neighbors and new acquaintances in the food court also located in the Springville Memorial Park. Lunch preparations begin around 10:30 a.m. on both Saturday and Sun-

day. The Lions’ lunch menu offers two choices; their famous barbequed tritip cole slaw burritos, served with chili beans and corn on the cob or their barbequed chicken wings served with chili beans and corn on the cob. Maintaining a booth year after year at the Springville Apple Festival helps the Springville Mountain Lions raise additional funds to invest back in to our community by supporting local youth activities such as school events, boys and girls scout troops and add-ons for Springville youth at the Porterville Fair, plus scholarships for local Springville youth graduates. The Springville Mountain Lions Club expresses their gratitude to all the attendees of the Springville Apple Festival who help in their fund-raising efforts by having their breakfast and lunch meals at their booth year after year.

The Post is small in numbers, but big in community goals.

Joy Collier - Artist of the Sequoias Joy Collier is a local artist whose work is readily recognizable. For the Apple Festival, Joy has been “working up a series of smaller paintings of the Sequoias and their environment (many of Joy’s paintings are massive) as well as several holiday boutiques” planned for this fall. She says: “everything I will be showing will be about the Sequoias.” In preparation, Joy has been laser focused on her art, “revisiting my favorite groves and writing blog articles about them that can be found on my website:

Joy’s Massive Paintings


Joy describes her paintings as “post-impressionistic style, influenced most by Cezanne and Monet.” She was taught in plein air, but not in the current plein air style: painting small studies. “I took my canvas to the subject and battled the elements for each discovery of form, color and light.” Now, Joy works more in her studio from her own original photography and research. As time passes, Joy has realized: “I’m experiencing a convergence of technology, knowledge, and creativity that was never possible before. With the development of affordable high quality giclee prints on canvas” she can “share my paintings, custom-size them, and sell them at much more affordable prices.

Joy says of herself: “I am a nature lover out enjoying the astounding beauty of the California Landscape.” She says: “I was taught, Paint what Smiles at You!” Joy loves where she lives calling “Success Valley and Mine Hill my backyard and Joy is preparing for a one-woman show at my “Moods of Mine Hill” series and “Oak Lace” Arts Visalia next May called “California’s Giant series provides glimpses into the constant changSequoias – Found No Where Else on Earth!” ing subtle moods of the hills and oaks I view every day.” Besides Artisans Village at the Apple Festival, you can find Joy at Fair Finds right here in The Sequoias, however, enthrall her most: “I’m Springville or follow her on her website: www. in love with these unique giants found nowhere else on earth!” She’s been painting the giants and their habitat for many years now. “They offer an endless variety of rich forms and textures to explore.”

Johnny Appleseed of Springville By Sandy Whaling “As American as apple pie” may well be an oxymoron as apples are not native to North or South America but are believed to have originated in the Caucasus, a mountainous region between the Black and Caspian Seas. Sour and unappetizing, the wild apple varieties are believed to have cross-pollinated creating the edible sweet version we know today. The first written account of apple orchards is found in the Odyssey, written 900-800 BC. Varro described their propagation, storage and the construction of an apple store between 116-27 BC while Pliny described how apples were auctioned while still on the trees in the first century AD. From the Caucasus, apples spread throughout the fertile crescent of the middle east and eventually all over the world. In England, evi-


ence shows wild apples were used for food in Neolithic times. The intentional cultivation of apple orchards occurred in Roman times. Soldiers were frequently awarded plots of land and encouraged to grow fruits to induce them to stay and thereby ensure ties to Rome. Waves of invasions from the Romans, to the Normans, the Vikings, and others resulted in adding ever more varieties of apples to the English Isles. Eventually, apples became a mainstay of English culture primarily as hard apple cider. Safe drinking water was rare in dense populations, so the safest form of drink was spirits of any kind. Cultivated apples were introduced to the Americas by European colonists who much preferred them to our only native, the crab apple. William Blackstone planted the first American apple orchard in 1625 in

Boston. This and most apple orchards were planted from seeds which resulted in a proliferation of varieties as apples are not self-pollinating, but rely on pollinator trees for fertilization. By the turn of the 19th Century, most apple varieties in North America were natives. In 1859, professional nurseryman, Andrew Jackson Downing reported over 600 varieties. Springville joined the apple expansion in the 1850’s when Hale Tharp, an early Springville settler, reported in his journal about time spent with Frank Knowles on upper Bear Creek where Frank had started an apple orchard. Not long after, John M. Nelson settled above Springville in what is now known as Camp Nelson where he planted that hamlet’s first apple orchard. Soon valley residents were making frequent trips to Camp Nelson for the excellent fruit and cider

Springville Apple Festival 2016

produced there. In 1916, J.P. “Pete” Planchon established the Buckthorn Ranch where he grew the Golden Delicious variety. Excellent growing conditions at the upper levels of Bear Creek, Balch Park, and Camp Nelson inspired the proliferation of apple orchards into 1993 when Rivendell Orchard was established. Historic names in Springville history are associated with apple orchards … names like Osborn, Dillon, Phipps, Crook and Murphy planted many varieties. In the hills above Springville, visitors will find Red and Golden Delicious, Arkansas Blacks, Sommerfields, Galas, Granny Smiths and more. Indeed, not only does a river run through it here in Springville, so does an apple.

Marilyn Meredith Springville’s Own Resident Author took to reach California. One family name in particular will seem familiar to residents of Springville – the Crabtrees, for whom a small cemetery off Globe Drive is named. Now, years later, Marilyn has launched her 15th book in one of two series she writes, both murder mysteries featuring female peace officers. “Seldom Traveled” finds its heroine, Tempe Crabtree, a resident of Bear Creek, a community suspiciously similar to Springville, investigating the murder of a young woman up on the mountain. Turns out, Tempe is the name of Marilyn’s great grandmother. Rocky Bluff PD is the second mystery series situated in a small coastal town between Ventura and Santa Barbara. According to Marilyn “I believe there are 12 books in the series, Marilyn Meredith has been a denizen of so far.” Springville since 1981. She has always been a Asked about embracing the murder mystery writer; but, it wasn’t until she moved to Springgenre, Marilyn says: “There are a number of ville that her first book was published, “Trail to Glory”. A second book followed, “Two Ways law enforcement professionals in the family, West” chronicling the paths family forebears and I just was fascinated with their stories.” In addition, the family is also populated with clergy (Tempe Crabtree’s husband, Hutch, is a minister), and Marilyn has a deep interest in the local Yokuts Native American tribe. “Being an author has opened up so many opportunities,” says Marilyn. Mystery conferences have taken her all over the country, Hawaii and Alaska. In Alaska, she was invited to stay with an Eskimo family

and learned to smoke salmon along with making some new friends. Marilyn, now a great grandmother, is not slacking off. “I write two books a year, one for the Tempe Crabtree series and one for the Rocky Bluff PD.” She also runs her own blog. She’s up in the wee hours of the morning and starts writing by 5 a.m. What motivates her? “I have to find out what’s next for Tempe,” she says. You may find her out and about in the community. She likes to give talks to small groups. One wish: “I wish more local people would read my books.” Even though they are fiction, “they’re researched and historically factual.” So people, make it a goal to know your local author through her wonderful books. Marilyn’s books are available at the Patton House in Springville and on Amazon.

Christmas in Springville Each year, in the month of December the residents of Springville gather together in the “Park” while the “Springville Volunteer Fire Company” lights up the evergreen tree ushering in the Christmas season. Also, during this celebration the “Company” has a Memorial Tree in which residents remember: fallen soldiers, friends, loved ones and past residents with their names being mentioned and a candle lit on their behalf. During the month of November the “Company” collects food from the community to distribute to the needy residents of Springville to make their Thanksgiving and Christmas celebration a little brighter.

Springville Apple Festival 2016


Apple Run - For All Ages Follows Cow Paths Along the Tule River Alex Reed-Krase Race Director

The Springville Apple Run has been an integral part of the Apple Festival since 1981, the year the festival was founded. The Apple Run’s founder, Carol Lapham, believed a run would be a great way to showcase Springville. Finding a course was initially very difficult. Part of the original course required runners to travel down Highway 190 Saturday


morning amid all the traffic coming to the Apple Festival! Thankfully in 1989 the late Bruce Borror made his ranch, Sequoia Ranch Estates, available to the race organizers. For last twenty-five years the Borror family have given runners a challenging and beautiful race course, following the winding Tule river, cow paths, and steep hill climbs with views of Springville. The Apple Run enjoys broad support from the community. Winners of each age category receive hand made awards from Springville Elementary School. Refreshments are donated by local farms Bear Creek Apples and Pleasant Valley Ranch. The Walmart Distribution Center

provides raffle prizes for participants in the kid’s race. Over 20 sponsors provide raffle prizes for participants. Every year at least 30 community volunteers help mark the course, register participants, keep official race time, and serve refreshments. For 2016 Alex Reed-Krase is the

Race Event Director and Nancy Bruce is the Race Course Developer. They can be reached at or on the Springville Apple Run community Facebook page. Registration for the run can also be found on the Facebook page.

Fair Finds - Springville’s New Eclectic Shop

On the west side of the Hamburger Stand, is an immaculate home that Derrick Usher has turned into the most delightful and eclectic shop. He calls it Fair Finds. Tastefully arrayed, it features the artwork, and crafts of local artists as well as retro clothing, collectibles and repurposed furniture. The shop is bright, clean and inviting. You will find no crocheted toaster covers here. Among the artists and craftsman are:

sculptures Kristin Keyes – oriental art Joy Collier – landscape – often featuring the Sequoias Henry Winkler – piano music of his own composing Kristen Carstenson – scented soaps Kadi DeLaRose – hand-stitched scarves and napkins Mark Aspery – blacksmithing artwork

Derrick Usher – acrylic on paper Lindsay Dion – stained glass and weaving Ron Zanini – inlaid marquetry boxes with exquisite designs Sarah Zanini – lariat baskets in varying sizes Tim Lewis – cut metal art Frances Pyle – pressed glass Sue Marcotte – fabric art Linda Spears – ceramics Betty Roller - jewelry Vicky Green – wood and horn

Derrick gives credit for the layout to Schifra Walder. “It’s like a scavenger hunt” he says. Every nook and cranny has something unique and interesting to see. Schifra’s retro clothing is clean, pressed, and tastefully displayed. She said she had customers in lately from the Bay Area who called it so “BoHo.” Derrick’s collectibles and furniture are likewise clean, in good repair, often colorful and certainly reasonably priced.

fra and Derrick will entertain offers other than the posted price for their articles. The artwork is on commission and the artist must be consulted if a customer wishes to negotiate. Derrick would like to see Fair Finds become a center for local art and artists, with regularly scheduled events. He is also interested in having classes. Among

his pet peeves is the tendency of art shows to discount the work of artists who lack formal training. He hopes to give them a venue. Springville has always had a vibrant art community and Derrick is a welcome addition. Fair Finds is open Friday and Saturday. For more information, call 559-719-0304 or e-mail Derrick at
