Apple of Our Eye
We said goodbye this week to one of our most dedicated volunteers. Kent Springer has moved full-time to San Diego. Kent not only leaves a hole in the Farmers Market team, he leaves a legacy for all of the Broad Ripple community.
Before he became involved with the Market, Kent was a Board Member for many years with the Broad Ripple Village Association.
He was so active with the BRVA that he served two full terms as President of the Board of Directors and created local events that helped our community know who the BRVA was – an advocacy for Broad Ripple residents and businesses with the city and helping resolve issues that involve both residents and businesses in Broad Ripple. One of Kent’s greatest legacies may be the Broad Ripple Duck Race which has become a very popular event with everyone who cares about Broad Ripple.
Kent grew up in Broad Ripple, went to Broad Ripple High School, and was instrumental in advocating for the community’s interests in the future use of the school. Kent promises to visit several times a year (he and his husband, Mark Luers, have family in Indiana). We all wish Kent and Mark a wonderful second retirement in San Diego and look forward to their visits. Thank you Kent for all you did for Broad Ripple and for the Farmers Market.
WHAT’S COOKING: October Apple Fest
October is probably my favorite month of the year, and always gets my taste buds geared up for meals inspired by my German heritage. One of the best things about German cooking is the liberal use of apples for both sweet and savory dishes. With more varieties arriving each week at the Market, it’s the perfect time to cook and eat apples. Get the recipes.
Our musicians volunteer to perform at the Market, so tips are much appreciated!
MUSICAL GUEST: Market Area – Dukes of Django
Drawing on the musical styles of Duke Ellington & Jango Reinhardt, Dukes of Django (Mario Joven & Dave Bagdade) play rousing, up-tempo swing to energize your morning. Come listen to them play while you shop this Saturday!
MUSICAL GUEST: Dining Pavilion – Paul Foster
Paul Foster served as a musician in the Navy, and currently leads the Indiana National Guard’s rock band, and plays with its jazz combo, and big band. Appreciating music of many genres enables him to connect with audiences of diverse tastes and ages.
