OBPA caramel apple sale Oct. 10

The Oakwood Band Parents Association is selling caramel apples at the Oct. 10 football game against Milton Union. The sale will fund the purchase of new instruments for the high school, junior high and elementary school band programs.

Freisingers Chocolates of Springboro is donating the caramel apples, so all the proceeds of the sale will go toward the instrument fund. Made with large Braeburn apples and dipped in caramel made from scratch, these apples are a fall treat.

The caramel apples are $4 each and are available in plain caramel or caramel with peanuts. The apples will be on sale by the south concession stand at the Oakwood stadium. Get these delicious treats early—they will not last!

Smith Harvest Festival Oct. 11

Can’t decide if you want to visit a pumpkin farm or go to a tailgate party? Do both at Smith School Saturday, Oct. 11 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.  Everything one can do at a pumpkin farm will be available:  buy pumpkins, cornshocks and straw bales, paint pumpkins, make fall crafts, build scarecrows and play field games.  

As for the tailgate element:  The bake sale held in conjunction with the festival continues to attract customers who are looking for specialty items not found in a bakery.  Beth Groff, the designer in charge, promises items are perfect for tailgate gift giving.  HEATER of the Dayton Dragon’s as well as Oakwood’s LUMBERJACK will mingle with fans and pose for pictures.  Members of OHS’s band will create its famous rumble and OHS Football, soccer (boys/girls), and field hockey varsity players will conduct skill clinics for elementary school age future quarterbacks, forwards, sweepers and goalies.  

Finally, there’s the PIG-OUT factor.  From 11 to 2:00 the concession stand will serve a Smithwich Lunch, i.e. a smokin’ barbeque sandwich complete with slaw, chips and drink.   There are a number of other menu items nutritionally designed to make “you run faster, think quicker and look more attractive,” according to Maureen McLaughlin, the Smithwich sandwich creator.

For those suffering financial fatigue, know Smith pumpkins are priced so every child leaves with a pumpkin. Bales of straw and corn shocks are also priced competitively.

10:00 - 3:00 Pumpkin Painting,
Crafts  & Scarecrow Construction
Corn Hole & Children’s Games

11:00 - 2:00  Barb-b-que Smithwich lunch
