The La Crescent Apple Festival is put on each year by countless volunteers who like to come out, have a little fun, and give back to the community.  A special group of people dedicate their time and talent year round to making sure Applefest is a success, while also attending other community events here in La Crescent, and in the surrounding area.  That special group of people: The Board of Directors.  Next time you see them out, tell them about a special time you have had in La Crescent, they love to hear stories about what makes our community so great!
