Apple Blossom Run Returns! Bicycle Ride Too!


After a hiatus of seven years, Saturday, May 26th is the date set for the 31st annual Apple Blossom Run, a well-loved and important fund-raising event for our library. This year a bicycle ride will be added to the event. Runners and riders will meet at 9AM at the Bayfield Apple Company (on the corner of County J and Betzold Road) and depart on one of four marked routes through the apple orchards. Participants can walk for two miles, run (or walk) for 6miles (10K), cycle for 3.5 or 13 miles. A school, bus will shuttle people every 20 minutes between the library and the Apple Company before and after the event. At around 11AM a festive gathering, in front of the library will greet the participants and volunteers as they arrive from the orchards. There will be food, beverage, music and door-prizes. The final activity will be for everyone to enter the library and check out books and other materials to support the funding of the library!

The Apple Blossom Run and Ride is a non-timed, non-competitive, fully supported event whose goal is to renew community commitment to our public library while indulging in a cavort through apple orchards in full bloom.
Registration can be secured online at or by registering at the Bayfield Carnegie Library.

We are still looking for volunteers to help: to provide food treats and help supervise different locations on the day of the event. Sign up at the library!
