Apple pie from scratch

Orders are now being taken for apple pies made from scratch to benefit the New Gloucester Historical Society. Thompson’s apples will be transformed into culinary classics created by local bakers.

Pie pickup will be between 2 and 6 p.m. Friday, Sept. 27, at the Congregational Church Vestry, 19 Gloucester Hill Road. Pre-orders for this annual fundraiser are required, so call Avis Ford at 926-4561 to reserve your pie(s) and specify baked or unbaked. Both freeze well. The suggested price is $9 per pie.
