DRESDEN — Cider pressing will take place from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 30, at the Pownalborough Court House, Courthouse Road, according to a news release from the Lincoln County Historical Association.

Those who attend are encouraged to bring their own apples and press their own cider. The stewardship committee of the historic site will provide participants with an electric grinder or a traditional press. It takes 42 apples to make a gallon of cider. Keep in mind that perfect apples are not necessary to make excellent cider, according to the release.

Cider donuts from Rocky Ridge Orchard in Bowdoin will be served, and containers for the cider will be provided at no charge. The event is free, although donations will be accepted to benefit the maintenance of the Court House.

The Court House, which is maintained by the association, will be open for tours.

In case of rain, cider pressing will be held Saturday, Oct. 7.

For more information, call Kerry Cushing at 882-6817 or Tina Guy at 441-6108.
