Over the past 5 years the Almonte Civitan Club have made & sold 4066 pies and raised $24,835. We donated $18,786 to Camp Quality of Eastern Ontario & $6051 to our Charity Fund. Many people made this task possible. Members, Family member & friends came out to help sell & make the pies.
Civitan Cindy FitzPatrick, event chair for the last 5 years, states, ” I would like to thank all the people that helped make the Pie Days project such a success”.
Camp Quality is a year round program for Children with Cancer that includes a week at a camp in Lanark. The kids are matched with a mentor who will spend time during the year with them to help give the families some respite as well as going to the Camp with them. Camp Quality is run by volunteers & receives no government funding at all.
Civitan Pie Days is an annually reoccurring event. Apple Pies in October, just in time for Thanksgiving Supper. Our Christmas Pie Days in November has Raisin, with Raisin, Cherry, Mincemeat, and Tourtiere. Check with the club for specific dates of these events.
