After many meetings and much discussion, the Frontier Apples Festival Committee has voted to postpone the Frontier Apple Festival in Newcomerstown until a later date. The date will be decided and announced once it is known.

Members of the committee talked about many different aspects of the festival and of the difficult times the town and nation are in at this time. Jobs gone, economy down, school just starting and people needing their money for many other things which are necessities instead of spending money on items that they can do without.

The committee then made their decision based on what they thought would better help the community. Members also cited the many fund-raisers being held for worthy causes and some fund-raisers that have been held where the committees have continued to gather funds throughout the year.

When the festival's dates are known, they will be publicized.
