Appreciation expressed to all who contributed to success of Apple Festival

The 21st Annual Trimble County Apple Festival was held September 10 & 11.  After a questionable start earlier this year, and overcoming several significant challenges, many community residents came together to organize an extremely successful event where over 4000 participants enjoyed the Counties two day premiere fall festival. The Apple Festival Committee would like to thank our 2011 sponsors for their generous donations, the neighbors surrounding the courthouse for their continued support, and the Trimble County Fiscal Court as well as the City of Bedford for everything they do to make the event possible.

We are especially grateful to the Trimble County Sherriff’s office for providing a safe environment for our participants throughout the festival. 

Special Thanks to the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts of Trimble County for their assistance with the festival, the Trimble County Middle School Football coaches for providing security, the Bedford Loan & Deposit, Farm Bureau of Bedford, and Bluegrass Drug Center for the cleanup activities during the event along with the Trimble County High School Basketball team members who assisted with our cleanup on Sunday evening and to all the local residents that volunteered their time and labor to make the event such a great success!

We are very appreciative to this community and all the support received to continue this local event for years to come and we look forward to the 2012 Trimble County Apple Festival.
