Make mine apple

St. Matthew’s Anglican Church is getting a piece of the Skeena Valley Fall Fair pie this year.

Susan Kinney has rolling pin at the ready to ensure there’s enough pie for the St. Matthews Church pie sales at the fall fair.

St. Matthew’s Anglican Church is getting a piece of the Skeena Valley Fall Fair pie this year.

This year, church volunteers will be serving up pieces of homemade pie to fair-goers once again in the fair exhibit hall.

Four volunteers will be making between 40-45 pies, ranging in flavours from mixed berry, fruit, raisin and nut pies, such as pecan.

The church ladies have been doing this since the 1980s but haven’t had a chance to serve up their delicious treats during the years the fair was closed.

Pie is sold by the slice, at $3.50 a piece. Money raised all goes back to help the church and charities. For example, to the child in South Africa the church sponsors.

Sales proceeds also support Ksan House and the emergency shelter that operates during the winter months.

“It’s quite fulfilling,” said organizer Susan Kinney.

“[Church] ladies always pitch in to sell.”

In previous years, the church has sold out. Pie lovers can also buy refreshments.

As to what is the most popular pie, Kinney says there are a few contenders.

“I would say apple…people like apple, but then again I’d say raspberry or blueberry.”

And, as a reminder, gates for the Skeena Valley Fall Fair Sept. 7 and 8 open at the Thornhill Community Grounds at 9 each morning.

Entries for produce, crafts, preserving etc. should be submitted Sept. 6 from  4 to 8 p.m. at the Thornhill Community Hall immediately adjacent to the grounds.
