How do ya like them apples?

Doris Worland looks over apples that have fallen to the ground. For the past couple years, the retired nurse who lives in Olalla has organized a community effort called S.A.Y.S. (Share All Your Surplus), finding properties with surplus apples and recruiting volunteers to pick them so the fruit can be donated to food banks. S.A.Y.S. volunteer Nonna Mikat (above right) of Port Orchard picks apples with her niece, Libby, on Oct. 1. More information at West Sound S.A.Y.S. on Facebook. - Tim Kelly/Staff photo
