UMary Students help out on Day of Service

A few apples here, and a few apples there… 
Only 7,000 more to go….
“We attacked one tree already,” says Jen Dunn, University of Mary Student.
Jen Dunn is one of almost 1,200 students helping out with University of Mary’s Day of Service. 
It’s a record number. 
Today is all about preparing to break another record too. 
“We are going to try to break the world record for the most people bobbing for apples at the same time the record is 597 and we are hoping for 625…And that doesn’t even take into account all the other apples we need for Apple Fest,” says Sarah Kelsch, Bismarck Cancer Center. 
At the festival there will be hayrides, old time photos, and all the apples you can eat. 
Which means today, no apple is safe. 
“Being short I could only reach so many from the ground so I figured why not climb up the tree,” says Dunn.
“We are so grateful we can’t even tell you. We wouldn’t be able to walk the rest of the week if it was just us,” says Kelsch. 
Now they just about hauling boxes and watching their heads for falling apples. 
If you want to check out their world record apple bobbing attempt, Apple Fest will be this Saturday. 
And if you want to participate, registration is from 1 to 2:30.
