NC Apple Festival Board

The NC Apple Festival would not be successful without the board members who serve and volunteer throughout the year. Each board member is responsible for some part of the festival, and the festival could not happen without their time and effort. The star next to a board members name denotes a past president of the NC Apple Festival.
