An annual fundraiser of the Dyersburg Cotillion Club, the Apple Annie initiative offered local residents a taste of fall and a chance to support a local charity for many years. The Friends of McIver's Grant Public Library will revive the annual event this Friday and Saturday, Nov. 1 and 2, with a selection of crisp autumn apples available for a donation to help aid the library.
On Friday, Apple Annie stands will be set up at First Citizens Green Village and downtown branches, Lowe's, Security Bank on Mall Boulevard, and First South's downtown location.
On Saturday, residents may visit First Citizens Green Village, Walmart, Lowe's, Security Bank on Mall Boulevard and at Walgreens on Parr Avenue.
Library officials and community leaders who have committed to manning the return of Apple Annie Days include Linda Overton, Connie Ladd, Penny Hearn Law, Joan Ryland, Robert and Iris Harrington, Kristol Sentell, Dianne and William Mallard, Alice Eison, Marie Carter, Patsye Jones, Tony Roberson, Kathy Montgomery, Judy Boehmler, Barbara Gatlin, Nancy Barrineau, Jordan Willis, Tamara Dunn, Kaye Bane, Joyce Deese, Lara Freidhof and Carol Miles.
