It's a common theme among the non-profit groups that set up each year on the grounds of the CH Moore Homestead: The Apple n' Pork Festival is their biggest fundraiser.
The Clinton YMCA has for many years served up tenderized pork cutlet sandwiches and Executive Director of the Y, Rennie Cluver, indicates the money goes back in to their general fund.
While the Clinton community benefits greatly from the Apple n' Pork Festival, Cluver indicates it is not just Clinton residents at the festival, but people from all over coming in supporting the various groups.
The now defunct-youth leaders club are a part of the YMCA's weekend help and do a great deal to help during Apple n' Pork weekend. Cluver says it brings together the youth and the leadership during the two-day festival.
The Clinton YMCA is located at 417 South Alexander Street in Clinton. To get more information on the 'Y', contact them at 217-935-8307.
