Wenatchee Is The Apple Capital Of The World Once Again

Thanks to the hard work and expense of one person, the former slogan of the city of Wenatchee was returned to the entrance of town this morning. The changing from “Apple Capital Of The World” to “Meeting Rivers – Meeting Friends – Meeting Needs” has been relatively controversial with call in guests on radio shows and letters to the “Safety Valve” of the Wenatchee World expressing their opinions.
