One of the first rites of spring in the lakes area, the 13th annual Maple Syrup Fest is set for Saturday, April 6 in Vergas.

Each year, the festival raises hundreds of dollars for the Vergas Community Club, which in turn uses the money to fund a variety of local service projects, says festival organizer Karen Olson.
