Pies & Wreath Pickup Time Change – 11/22

There is a change in the time for picking up the pies and wreaths this Saturday, November 22. The revised pick-up time will be from 11:00am – 12 noon. Don’t forget that we will be at the north entrance of the school (pond side). Your pies are frozen and must be picked up on Saturday. We do not have a place to store them! Sherry and her family love pie so if you leave it at school she will have extra pies for Thanksgiving!
