Junior Forrest, owner of Junior’s Smokehouse in Highlands, is selling apple pies made from Kiwanis apples and donating half of the proceeds back to Kiwanis Club. Forrest dropped an apple pie off at the apple truck in the Conn’s parking off Garth Road for volunteers to sample. From left are Kiwanis Club members Renea Dillon, Renee Rhodes and Gary Englert.

This year’s 70th annual Kiwanis Club apple sale not only features delicious apples but apple pie from Junior’s Smokehouse. 

Junior Forrest, owner of Junior’s Smokehouse in Highlands, and his mother, Gracie, have been hard at work making pies made from Kiwanis Granny Smith apples.  “I won’t tell the rest of my recipe because it’s something my mother and I came up with together,” Forrest said. 

Each apple pie is $20 and $10 will go to the Kiwanis Club of Baytown.  Anyone interested in purchasing an apple pie needs to call ahead of time at 281-426-2929. 

Kiwanis Club members are also selling apples in the parking lot of Conn’s, 5010 Garth Road, from 12:30 to 5:30 p.m. Sunday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Saturdays. The sale ends Nov. 10.

The club will be selling red delicious, gala and Granny Smith apples by the case (88 apples) for $60, half a case (44 apples) for $30 and a quarter case (22 apples) for $20. 

The apple sale is the club’s main fundraiser, so it’s important to purchase apples because 100% of the proceeds help support many different community, school, youth and senior citizen programs.
