Hello, Palermo Community!

Here’s a yummy option for finishing off your Thanksgiving dinner and supporting our food pantry.

Thanksgiving pie fundraiser

Just because we can't have big Thanksgiving gatherings doesn't mean we can't have an elegant pie to finish off the most celebrated dinner of the year. Several of Palermo's Food Pantry volunteers are seeking to raise money to keep the Community Center's heat on and the freezers running so our neighbors can continue to pick up food for their families on a weekly basis.

We are baking traditional pies with local pumpkins, apples, and berries to order so you can pick them up on Nov. 25. For only $10, you might choose a pumpkin, apple, pecan, chocolate cream, or peanut butter cream pie. Pumpkin with a pecan crust is $13, and the apple pie with a cheddar crust is $15. Except for the apple pie with cheddar crust, which is bigger, these are all 9-inch pies.

Orders must be in by Nov. 18. Please call Pauline at 993-3033, or leave a message for Connie at 993-2294. They will call you on the 25th so you can pick up pies at the Palermo Community Center, and pay cash. This will be as contact-free as possible, with curbside pickup just off the deck. There will only be about 30 pies available, so place your order as soon as possible. If you have a special request, please let Pauline know.

We thank you for your support for this community effort, and we wish you and yours a safe, happy, and healthy Thanksgiving.
