Spreading seeds of friendship and kindness

SWAN VALLEY - Attendees at the Missoula Children's Theatre production of "Johnny Appleseed" Feb. 18 got to see first hand the fruitful career of Johnny Appleseed. Swan Valley students sang and danced their way across the west spreading apple seeds, kindness and sharing how much fun apples can be.

Johnny Appleseed (played by Lilly Boyd) was not always called by his famous name. In fact, as the story goes, the young Johnny Chapman was given the nickname "Appleseed" after sharing seedlings for free and planting apple trees everywhere he went.

At the core of his adventures, Appleseed always brought kindness and tried to help his friends get a long. That was not always easy, however he firmly believed, "All you need is an apple for fun. They are shiny and red, juicy and sweet."

Year after year the apple trees grew and Appleseed made many friends along the way.
