Family Fun Night a success

Posted on: November 18, 2015

The legend of Johnny Appleseed was brought to life once again by a local storyteller at a recent family event at Harlan-Butlerville Primary School.

Rick Sowash told about the life and times of John Chapman, the man known as Johnny Appleseed, who introduced the apple tree to the Midwest in the early 1800s.

The Butlerville PTO sponsored the family fun night, which featured a spaghetti dinner, games, and a story by Sowash.
