Pie Baking for the Tacoma Rescue Mission

It’s time to start thinking of making  Pumpkin Pies again for the Tacoma Rescue Mission.  Pie crust rolling will start at 9 a.m. on Monday, November 19th, in the Fellowship Hall.  We could use some more 8-9″ pie tins (similar to the ones displayed in the Narthex).  During the year #10 cans of pumpkin and evaporated milk have been purchased, so if you would to contribute to that or for the 8-9 dozen eggs needed, see Joyce Magnusson.  This is a fun and productive time that you won’t want to miss!  Kids,  men, and those who want to learn, are very welcome.  Come when you can and leave when you want.
