A thousand apple pies for Grace Village

By newsroom

By Emilie Hackett, Special to the Record – Grace Village will be holding a ‘thousand apple pie’ fundraiser on Saturday, Nov. 3 and Saturday, Nov. 10. Four groups of six volunteers will be making 125 pies each on both Saturdays, from 9 a.m. to noon, for a total of 1,000 apple pies. The pies will be available for pickup from noon to 2 p.m. on both days. Grace Village residents and volunteers will work together to produce a thousand pies over the span of two days. The pies will be sold in advance at the price of $12 per unit or $50 for five pies. These homemade desserts will be ready to pop in the oven for immediate consumption or in the freezer to save for later. The thousand apple pies fundraiser is an initiative of the Dr. W. J. Klinck Foundation, which supports the Grace Village (formerly Grace Christian Home). Founded under the leadership of the late Dr. W. J. Klinck in 1957, Grace Village is a Certified Private Residence which receives no government funding. See full story in the Tuesday, October 30 edition of The Record.
