Then one of the continued FUNdraisers are the Pie Sales at the Saturday Farmer’s Market. If you have not been to the Farmer’s Market, this is a good way to contribute and attend. Joann Trimberger has worked hard with her committee to decorate a booth, and sell our members homemade pies. Joann needs more pies.

This has turned out to be a great money maker for us…And, fun… The next date we are selling pies is AUGUST 1st. Call Joann and let her know you can come and help, but most we NEED PIES. The more pies we get the more money we make for our Grants. Her email address is joanntrimberger@hotmail.com.

If for some reason, let me know if you need help getting your pies there if you can’t come. I am collecting people to collect the pies in a couple different areas who can bring them down to the Market…The booth will be decorated between 6:30 and 7:30 AM I am supplying the tent and tables. The booth and the pies must be ready at the opening bell at 8:00 AM.
