Editor, The Independent:
Once again this year, 4-H Pies for the holidays was a success! All thanks to the generous people who donated their time and supplies.
Two hundred apple pies were handed out on Nov. 16 at the 4-H food Stand to 10 different school districts in the Shiawassee County area. These pies were to find their way to families’ Thanksgiving and Christmas tables.
This is the sixth year that volunteers have gathered at the 4-H Food Stand on the Shiawassee County Fairgrounds to make pies.
Special thanks to the Michigan Milk Producers Association, Wyrick Orchards and Save-a-Lot as well as Steve Maynard and Luanne Maynard. Several individuals donated flour, brown sugar, spices and bags. Over 30 people gathered on Saturday, Oct. 10, to make this all possible!
If you would like to become a part of this wonderful activity, please contact the MSU Extension Office, (989) 743-2251.
