Springville Welcomes You! 30th

Springville Apple Festival October 16 & 17, 2010

Welcome to the NEW FACE of the Springville Apple Festival. This is our 30 th year celebration. Some changes are immediately visible to the return attendee and others changes are subtle. Most notably there are no vendor booths on the public sidewalks and the Festival itself begins further into Springville Village than in years past. The buses are using a different route in order to bring you closer to the event.  There has NOT been a reduction in the number of booths at our event.  Vendors have had to be relocated  to spaces on private properties in order for our event to be in compliance with Cal Trans and for the safety of the attending public. We hope you will embrace these changes as they are necessary for the continued enjoyment of the Springville Apple Festival . The Apple Festival Committee works hard ALL year long to bring you this event.  We hope that we have succeeded in making your weekend enjoyable for you, your family and your friends. .

Apple Festival Event Coordinator Phyllis Taylor

This year, in celebration of our 30 th Anniversary we have added a CONTEST . The Apple Festival Secret Word contest.  Please see the instructions on page 10 of this program.    Enjoy the 30th Annual Springville Apple Festival.  We are pleased to be able to present this event to you.   Good Luck in the Secret Word Contest.  Phyllis Taylor - Event Coordinator

The Patton House Gift & Thrift Shop In 2005, the Springville Community Club celebrated 35 years of community service and friendship. Norma Inabinette two-term past president, describes it best:”the heart of this organization is the Patton House.” If it were nothing more than an enduring little retail shop, its existence and value to the community might still be enough. But, the shop means far more than that.” The Patton House is a symbol of community spirit that characterizes Springville. In 1985, a small group of investors lead by Ruth Stoetzel bought the house for the Springville Community Club. The debt was promptly repaid and the community gained a thriving business that

Springville’s Patton House serves as headquarters for the Springville Community Club, sponsors of the Springville Apple Festival.

gives back to the community with scholarships, crisis funds, help to the needy and more. The garden behind the Patton House is a little island of serenity. Many of the roses, shrubs, fountains, and trees there are planted in memory of friends and family in Springville. The Memorial Garden with its quaint center gazebo has been used for weddings, family reunions, and memorial services many times. Come In! Visit the Patton House, located on Highway 190 between the Springville Inn and the Hamburger Stand, which is open 7 days a week from 10 - 4. For more information, feel free to call 559-5393993 during operating hours.


A Long Tradtion of Volunteering The Springville Apple Festival will celebrate its 30th Anniversary this year, which is the 40th Anniversary of the Springville Community Club and the 50th Anniversary of the Sequoia Foothills Art Show. Quite a line-up for this active community and this group of women. “Almost everywhere you look, you see the hand of civic-minded Springville volunteers” notes Sandy Whaling, publicity chair for the Apple Festival Committee. “This all grew out of a clutch of women who first joined forces to assist patients and hospital workers when Sequoia Dawn was a tuberculosis hospital. When the hospital was decommissioned in 1978, the Sequoia Dawn volunteers formed the Springville Community Club and continued their good works with the motto ‘Friendship and Service.” The Club has taken many projects under its wings over the years. The Sequoia Foothills Art Show, in its 50th year, is an annual Community Club project. Sue Marcotte, recent-

ond largest fundraiser for the Club, eclipsed only by the Patton House, owned, operated and staffed by Club volunteers” notes Sandy. Never letting any grass grow under their feet, Norma Inabinette, past president of the Club, recently brought a new project for the Club to consider which it did and approved. The project – PALS – Partners at the Library in Springville. This group serves to benefit the local public library. Norma invites you to “look for us selling books at booth 136 SD as our official first fundraiser.” When you see the Festival volunteers in Red Shirts, the men at the Lions Club Booth in the Park, the men and women of REACT directing traffic, officers Greg Stoeffel and Ron Crouch, the VFW booth selling apple burritos in booth 201, Eagle Mountain Casino buses shuttling festival goers to and from the Rodeo Ground, you find the spirit of Springville in action.

Frank Knowles introduced apples to Springville in the 1850s. Known as the “Johnny Appleseed” of Springville, his orchard on Bear Creek was chronicled by Hale Tharp, an early Springville settler who reported his visit with Frank in a journal. A short time later, John M. Nelson settled above Springville in 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. The Golden Delicious variety was established at the Buckthorn Ranch in 1916 by J.P. “Pete” Planchon. 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. Today, you can find several varieties the hills above Springville. Red and Golden Delicious, Arkansas Blacks, Sommerfields, Galas, and Granny Smiths are

Springville Apple Festival 2010

all grown here. Indeed, not only does a river run through it here in Springville, so does an apple.

Apple varieties in Springville You will find many apple orchards east of Springville along Bear Creek and Balch Park Roads. Among the varieties grown are the Red and Golden Delicious, Granny Smith, Gala, Sommerfield, and the Arkansas Black. Of these, the Arkansas Black is perhaps the most intriguing. Large, with extremely dark skin, the Arkansas Black is especially dense and crisp. No apple has a greater storage quality than this one. Sitting on the counter, the apple’s skin continually darkens, taking on a sheen and an oily texture. This apple is best used blended with other apples as it has a very mild flavor. Ask for the Arkansas Black at Bear Creek Apples, located on the south side of Highway 190 just before entering Springville.


Young people contribute to the success of the Festival Age doesn’t matter when it comes to volunteers at the Springville Apple Festival. “School kids to grand and great grandparents get involved to make the Festival a success” notes Sandy Whaling. “My first year making apple pies, I was standing between Kathryn Kandarian (80) and Shirley Miller (79 ½) and barely keeping up.” That was in 2004 and little has changed. Shirley Miller still makes pies and is the Volunteer Coordinator for the Festival. At the other end of the spectrum, A.J. Watts’ Porterville High School baseball team are back to help keep the busses moving. They help people stow and retrieve strollers, walkers and purchases on the bus. They also assist riders getting on and off and clean up anything left inside. Jeanne Preall, Secretary for the Committee commented to Coach Watts, “the casino drivers have never seen the busses so clean. The boys did such a great job.” Just

as they did last year, the Coach Watts and two players representing their team showed up to volunteer their services …. They didn’t wait to be asked. Elementary school kids do their part as well. The kids at Springville Union School make clay apples to give out as awards for first, second

and third place winners from the Apple Run. Businesses and property owners volunteer too. They volunteer their property for booths and signs, they provide prizes to contest winners and more. “We can’t do this without them,” notes Taylor, Festival Coordinator.

Apple Run: Introducing people to Springville one step at a time By Sandy Whaling

The Springville Apple Run is a long, unbroken tradition of the Apple Festival. “Runners come from all over California and we’ve even had some international runners” says chairperson, Rick Mitchell. “In 2005, we were fortunate to have Bryan Clay, 2004 Olympic Silver Medalist in the decathlon , here with us to give out the awards. Bryan went on to win the gold in 2008.” The race starts out at 8 am with the popular Kid’s Run. Kids in four age categories take off at Rio Vista, just off Bridge Street and have twenty minutes to complete the ½ mile course. The 5K event follows on a course that parallels the Tule River. As soon as that group finishes, the Two-Mile Walk gets underway on the same path with a shorter turnaround. The 10K run follows a similar path for the first mile then juts off into the foothills on a challenging climb where runners will have a vista of Springville and the Tule River below. “Every part of this course shows off

the 2010 race through October 13th. Rick estimates that over 200 runners will compete this year. For those who missed the signups for 2010, be sure to visit us online to get ready for 2011. The Apple Run is sponsored this year by the Springville Chamber of Commerce, California Land Management and OACYS. In addition, many businesses in town have donated prizes including the prize for the very popular raffle that is a highlight for the runners. “Rick has been the organizer of the Apple Run for as long as anyone can remember” notes Sandy Whaling. The Apple Festival Committee is deeply saddened to learn, Rick is making this his last year. “We can’t find the words to tell him how much 321,Timothy Braziel of Lindsay, 320, Jack Logan of Bakersfield he will be missed” said Phyllis Tay& 311, Jack Soursa of Springville look like they’re giving it their lor, Apple Festival Chair. “Thank effort! you so much for the many years of the beautiful village of Springville” the Gazebo in the Park at approxi- hard work, organizational skill, and notes Rick. “It takes the runners mately 10 a.m. and the winners are enthusiasm.

.....A Tribute Norm Gray passed away this year and he is sorely missed by more than a few organizations in town where he generously volunteered his time. Norm worked on numerous projects with the Springville Mountain Lions. He was a fixture in the kitchen during pie baking for the Festival. The Tule River Historical Society misses him too. One of Norm’s favorite events was the Rodeo Parade where he drove an antique tractor every year for more than a decade. Cassie, we extend our deepest sympathy and our gratitude for lending us this wonderful man all these years.

other varieties. Granny Smith -“Granny” Anne Smith of Australia discovered this chance seedling in 1868. Very tart, they are good in pies and sauces.

Apple Festival T-Shirts The first T Shirt design was a black pen & ink drawing signed by Smit or Smith in 1982? The front cover art comes from the first T-Shirt Design Contest winner in 1982. According to Jeanne Loscotoff, “the winner of our annual T-Shirt Design Contest wins a prize and sees their design go on the official Apple Festival T-Shirt.” She went on to say: “This is a milestone year for us, our 30th anniversary; so, we decided to use the design from the first official t-shirt ever designed for the Festival.” The artwork is signed Smit or Smith 1982? We just can’t make it out. Maybe, there is someone who knows more than we do. The T-Shirt is in red this year and features Johnny Appleseed asleep under an apple tree with his signature cook pot on his head. It comes in both short sleeve and long sleeve versions. Be sure to buy your T-Shirt at the Community Club’s booth in the Park or at the Patton House. “Quantities are limited this year, so don’t wait too long” Jeanne advises.

Springville Apple Festival 2010


How it all began.. A history of the Springville Community Club and the Springville Apple Festival The Apple In 1981, Edna Hann returned from a fall trip to the east coast with an idea. She had visited an apple festival there and because Springville had a thriving history of growing apples, Mrs. Hann proposed Springville do the same. Voila’, the Springville Apple Festival was born just six weeks later. From that day to this, the festival has grown from five tables outside the Patton House Gift & Thrift Shop to more than 150 booths, a myriad of activities, live entertainment, contests, and more. “Maggie” Patterson recalls taking a fall drive up to Springville: “where we saw a small gathering in front of the Patton House. “Little did she know that she and friend Loretta Robinson were participating in the first ever Springville Apple Festival. This year marks the 30th year

of the Springville Apple Festival. From Phyllis Taylor, Festival Chair, “We hope you have as much fun at the Festival as we had in bringing it to you.”

ing or sauce, the flesh of this apple cooks down quickly making it an iffy choice for pies. Newtown Pippin - Thomas Jefferson favored this apple also known as the Albemarle Pippin. Good in pies and applesauce, this is one of the oldest varieties, a foundation fruit for many new varieties. It was discovered on Long Island in 1759.

Festival began in 1981 with a handful of booths in the Patton House Parking Lot Pink Lady - Pink Lady is another apple with a registered trademark of Brandt’s Fruit Trees. Great for snacking, salads, and baking. Called the Gala with a “zing”. Red Delicious - Originating in Iowa in the 1870’s, the Red Delicious is the most widely reconized apple in the U.S. Best eaten fresh or in salads. Rome Beauty - Known as the Baker’s friend, this apple discovered in Rome Township, Ohio in the 1800’s is legendary for its storage qualities. Tart-sweet, its best use is as a cooking apple.

The Baby Cafe returns to festival The Springville Apple Festival is pleased to have the Baby Café with us for a third year. The Baby Café is located at Sequoia Dawn near Family Town and gives nursing moms a quiet, comfortable, private place to care for their infants and overheated, excited toddlers. The Baby Café is sponsored by the Tulare County Breast Feeding Coalition and the LaLeche League. Moms will find fans, changing stations, and comfortable accommodations for breastfeeding infants and caring for toddlers. The Baby Café also provides educational materials on breastfeeding and health issues concerning infants and small children.


.....The New Face of the Apple Festival Past visitors to the Apple Festival will quickly notice a big change this year. Booths have been moved off the sidewalks and onto private property. Festival Coordinator, Phyllis Taylor, explains: “We received information from CalTrans that booths on the sidewalks with pedestrians in the street do not comply with the event permit we need each year to conduct the Festival. “ She went on: “They said booths are permitted in the street with pedestrians on the sidewalk; but the Apple Festival Committee felt the result would be unworkable and unsafe. So, to be in total compliance with CalTrans, we reconfigured the Festival so that everything is off Highway 190 and on private properties.” Jolene Crosby, applications chair worked with property owners and vendors to create the new configuration.Although the scene along Highway 190 looks different, “Sequoia Dawn will see little change” Jolene Crosby pointed out “since it

is already off the street. “ Of course, this meant a major reorientation for the vendors. “They have been extremely cooperative” noted Crosby, who personally contacted each vendor, explained the situation, and personally met and showed each vendor their space options. “The street may look different this year; but, we have a comparable number of vendors, great variety, lots of activities and we’re optimistic that festival goers will have the same wonderful experience they’ve always had in the past” Taylor said. Per Crosby, “The property owners were wonderful! They flew to our aid, and we are very grateful. Thanks to cooperative vendors and generous property owners, we should have a great 30th Anniversary.” So, hop on board, All Things Apple are coming up at the 30th Annual Springville Apple Festival.

REACT..... No matter what event you attend in the Porterville and Springville area, you are likely to run into the members of REACT ( Radio Emergency Associated Communications Team). REACT teams are found all over the country and were founded to respond to emergencies like earthquakes, floods, and other natural disasters. But, they are not limited to disasters. The REACT Team of Porterville has lent the services of its small group to the Springville Apple Festival almost since its inception. “You’ll find us directing traffic during Rodeo and the Bull Bash, and the Porterville Fair” reports President, Tony Robinson. “Maggie” Patterson, is both seen and unseen – she’s found directing traffic in front of the Fire Station during Apple Festival wearing the big bear feet and often a bear costume.

I asked Maggie the indelicate question of age when we met at Tony’s home recently. “I’m 80 years old. Volunteering with REACT keeps me young.” How important is REACT to the Springville Apple Festival? At a recent committee meeting, Greg Stoefel told the group: “I never worry about traffic control when REACT is on the job.” REACT Porterville is a close knit family, literally and figuratively. Tony Robinson’s mother, Loretta Robinson was the matriarch of the group until she passed away just this last May. Tony’s brother Bill Morton and children, Kira and Chris and wife Maddy are also members of the team. Brothers Roy and Richard Williams, Donna McElroy, and Maggie’s son and daughter-in-law, Brian and Sherry Patterson round out the group. The group had many stories to tell. “We have been directing traf-

He’s joined by the others in agreement. Why do they do this? “Giving back to the community keeps us together and gives us a purpose” says Tony” and again, everyone is in agreement. Whether volunteering or having a barbeque together, this group is close knit like a big family. REACT stands ready to help their community whether it’s an emer-

They bought a small toy hauler/trailer three years ago and stock it with an ATV, cones, and supplies to be ready for any contingency.
