IRON RIVER—On Friday, July 20, Reino Unit 21 American Legion Auxiliary will host a pie social at Iron River City Hall to help the Iron County Cancer Unit get much-needed funds to help county cancer victims.
“Thanks to City Manager John Archocosky, we will be able to use the old fire station in the rear of the City Hall to put out a host of delicious homemade pies,” said Unit Member Marilyn Budzak.
The pie social starts at 9 a.m. and will continue until 3 p.m., “or until all the pies are gone,” said Budzak.
“We depend on the great pie-bakers of the county to help us with our wonderful selection of pies. We warn that no custard pies will be accepted because of the heat,” said Budzak. “Just when we think we have seen every berry pie or different fruit combinations, along comes another one to tempt your taste buds.”
All pies are cut in six pieces, “so you get a generous slice for $3. You may have that piece of pie plain, with whipped cream or a scoop of ice cream. It’s up to you.”
Whole pies will be sold for $18, “and no bargains. We are out to make money for the Cancer Unit. We will have coffee and ice water as our beverages.”
The unit, said Budzak, could use donations of ice cream, whipping cream (the spray type), coffee, ice and paper products.
“If we don’t have to buy any supplies, than it’s more money for the Cancer Unit. Call me at 265-2258 if you will donate pies or supplies. The sooner I hear from you, the better the pie social will be.”
Each year, Reino Unit 21 picks a community project that needs help in reaching its goals. Last year, the unit helped Search and Rescue get its new truck.
“We look forward to serving our community because helping our veterans and their families is our main goal,” said Budzak. “No steps to worry about. Remember to call me at 265-2258. We will see you on Friday, July 20. Open the door and come into ‘pie heaven.’ We will have a plate ready for you.”
