Great Lakes Apple Crunch and Fridley High School Welcomes Visitors!
All over the Midwest, students "crunched" into local apples on October 11th to celebrate the Great Lakes Apple Crunch. This year we were joined with visitors from the Minnesota Department of Agriculture, the Minnesota Department of Education, The Good Acre and Senator Carolyn Laine. Our guests and students enjoyed pulled turkey sandwiches, creamy coleslaw, roasted delicata squash from Seeds Farm , Northfield, MN and SweetTango Apples from Pine Tree Apple Orchard, White Bear Lake, MN.
