Apple Tree Arts

Dear friends,
In solidarity with the Black community, we are taking an extended intermission and pausing our Act III: Conversation with an Artist auction until a later date.
Theatre and music have a powerful role to play in creating understanding where there is division, love where there is hatred, and peace where there is conflict. We take this moment to reflect and reaffirm our commitment to equity, empathy, justice, and inclusion.

Black lives matter.
Our Black students, families, friends, performers, audience members, and colleagues matter.

We see you.
We stand with you.
We are listening.

In community,

The Apple Tree Arts staff

Do you have a supply chain strategy to keep your company safe in the coming months? Let us eliminate the stress in your life to search for these key items.
We’re recommending every company to review their cleaning product needs and develop a 3-month strategy. Then in 2 months review this strategy and create another 3-month plan. Inventory on most cleaning products has been drained from the supply channel. Building inventory is happening and some items will not be seen for 2-3 months. We can help you create a strategy to supply your critical cleaning product needs including Hand Sanitizer, Nitrile Gloves, Paper Towels, Toilet Tissue and more.
Contact us today for details:

“Restaurants are Re-opening, Some Etiquette Guidelines”

Yes! Restaurant patios will be open! This is a new world though. You're most likely going to a restaurant that threw together a patio in hopes of making some money. The building was not designed for this. They are trying their best but everything may not be perfect. Eating in the streets is fun but it's going to be hard on the employees. They have to wear a mask and gloves no matter how hot and go possibly a few hundred feet to get more water. They are going to be hot, sweaty and most likely overwhelmed because these restaurants are not set up for this. Please help your servers in this journey by doing the following
1. Don't run your server. Try your best to ask for everything you need at once. Remember it's going to be a long walk from the street into the building for more water or anything else. Help us out by asking all at once
2. No mask jokes or your views on them. The server has to wear it. They have no choice and really your opinion of them while you're eating not wearing one means nothing to them.
3. The server is wearing the mask to protect you and you have nothing on to protect them. Wash your hands.
4. You eat. You go. Eat your meal. Have some drinks but please do not sit at a table all night unless you continue to spend money. These restaurants are working with very limited space. They can't afford for you to order 2 side salads and water and sit there 4 hours. Yes, people actually do that. All the time.
5. Don't come out if you’re sick.
6. Social distancing. Keep your kids at the table. Yes. They're cute but if they are running around they are getting too close to other people.
7. Cut everyone some slack. Everything may be a bit slow because this is basically a new job for everyone. Be kind.
8. Tip. They are going to be sweating wearing masks all to make a buck. Please treat them right and leave a decent tip. If you can't afford to tip you can't afford to go out.
9. Be pleasant. You should be happy. You're finally out.
10. Realize that the staff is doing their best.
11. Remember you have 3 meals a day every day of your life. This is only one of them. Calm down and enjoy it!
12. Please share!

"Order Local Food Challenge"

"Join me in supporting our local restaurants in Grafton, Northbridge and Upton. I will be posting a Restaurant of the Day and challenge you to order from them. One lucky patron will be the recipient of a $25 gift card that I have purchased, to ‘thank you’ for ordering local. Keep on the lookout for a post each day! These restaurants have agreed to take part, and I believe this challenge is a way to support small, locally-owned restaurants which have supported you, I and our communities through so much."
