Pie on the Porch 2017

We have had a great start to Pie on the Porch this year!  We love our new location and the Karner family from Crescent Moon has been more than welcoming to us. In addition to our move in front of their store at 537 N Main, we have other news as well.  Thanks to a grant from 4Imprint we have new aprons with our Morgan House logo on them. Board members also received t-shirts. Come check us out!! Barb Herzog donated a new tent so we can use the other one for shade.  Jeanne Tondryk helped us with our first Strawberry Shortcake Day on July 1 in memory of John Allen from Allenville Farm. Thanks to Allenville Farms for those wonderful sweet strawberries and Pick & Save for donating the whipped topping! Allenville Farm has a booth right next to us so it was a great partnership. We sold over 50 delicious strawberry shortcakes in addition to pie!  This year we are also offering some new items to our menu such as decaf coffee, sugar-free lemonade, and bottled water.  Our Pie on the Porch volunteers have been awesome!!  We have had over 20 volunteers this year, many of them volunteering for the first time. They all said they want to come back because it is so much fun!  It’s not too late to help out by volunteering or making a pie.  Please let Brittany Martinez (brittanymartinez54@gmail.com) know if you would like to volunteer and let Lisa Zwickey (lzwickey@gmail.com) know if you can bake a pie.  No need to make a long-term commitment.  You can volunteer or bake as often as you would like.  It is a fun and rewarding atmosphere in which to work!  All profits this year will receive matching funds from the Kuenzl foundation and go toward preserving the Morgan House.
