DUNWOODY, Ga. — The Dunwoody Preservation Trust has set Apple Cider Days — events set around fall and local history — for Nov. 9 and 10.
Saturday, Nov. 9, attendees will have an opportunity to acquaint themselves with Dunwoody’s founding families, their foundations and focus from 9:30 to 11 a.m. The cost is $3 for DPT members and $5 for non-members.
Around the Donaldson-Bannister Farm there will be free activities for the entire family, including local musical performances, a petting zoo, face painting, children’s pioneer crafts and games.
There will also be a pioneer outdoor cooking and apple cider press demonstration, a display of vintage farm tools and home goods, an all-things-apple booth, Dunwoody Fine Arts plein air painters, artisans, Chick-fil-A and Moondog Growlers for purchase. These activities will be from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
To cap the day, there will be a “Sunset Serenade Benefit.” Guests can bring their own food and beverages for a picnic under the stars with music by moonlight featuring local bands. Reserve a table at firstname.lastname@example.org. All proceeds go to assist Dunwoody school music programs.
Sunday, Nov. 10 there will be a free guided tour of Stephen Martin Cemetery, Dunwoody’s once-hidden historic burial ground of some of its founding families.
The tour will be 4 to 5 p.m. Scouts can earn a patch for $2 each. Contact email@example.com for troop reservations and to purchase patches.
