Sunday

How about some pie: The annual Great Pie Palooza will be held at the First Congregational Church, 906 Main St., Williamstown, today at 11:15 a.m. Participants are asked to bring in or drop off two pies of any kind (homemade or professionally baked) at the Williamstown church (Fellowship Hall) on the morning of Sunday, Nov. 23, any time between 9 and 11 a.m. Pie #1 will be sent to the Food Project. If you wish to enter the Pie Palooza contest, your Pie #2 will be sampled by the congregation and visitors during Second Hour@The Meetinghouse. Please include the following with your pies: your name, pie’s name, special ingredients (nuts, chocolate, etc.). Be sure your Pie #1 is in a pie plate/tin that you do not want back. Please do not bring a pie that needs refrigeration. If you do not want to enter the contest, but would like to donate a pie (or pies) to the Berkshire Food Project, that’s fine. If you want to come and just sample pies, that is fine too. For more information, contact Carolyn Behr at 413-458-5557 or carolynbehr@yahoo.com.
