Maple time! Chardon Kiwanis Club gets sweet

It is said there is no better time in Geauga County than maple season.

The Chardon Kiwanis Club agrees.

The Kiwanis Club of Chardon will gather at the kitchen of the Pilgrim Christian Church to bottle some of the sweet stuff produced at local sugarhouses. The syrup will be sold at the Heritage House on Chardon Square this spring.

The Heritage House will open with Tappin’ Sunday on March 3 and will be open from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. each Sunday. The Heritage House will be open for maple sales on the traditional Easter Egg Hunt at 9 a.m. April 21.

During the Maple Festival, which is April 25 to 28, maple sales will occur at both the Heritage House and festival tent located on Short Court.

According to a news release from the Chardon Kiwanis, those who stop by can expect maple syrup, maple barbeque and mustard, maple candy, maple spread, maple sugar, and various other sweets. One of the sweetest maple products — maple sugar cotton candy — will return for another year.

As in previous years, all profits will support the scholarships that the club offers to graduates planning to attend college or trade as well as various welfare projects the club sponsors.

In addition to Kiwanis maple sales, the Stir Booth will be open every Sunday for visitors to enjoy prior to the Maple Festival from noon to 4 p.m.
