An apple a day keeps the doctor away and what better way to get that daily dose of medicine than in the form of a pie.
On Aug. 28 the community of Mossbank is inviting Moose Javians and the surrounding community to the town’s community hall for its annual Apple Pie Day.
Serving up hot apple pie, baked by those in the community, the event, according to Brian Vandurme, president of the Mossbank Museum board, is just a fun way for the community to get together, raise a little money, enjoy some pie and say good-bye to summer.
“If nothing else those who attend will have the opportunity to eat some really, really good apple pie,” said Vandurme.
However, Vandurme said what is apple pie without ice cream?
Being that this is the silver anniversary of the museum, Vandurme said they wanted to do something special, thus will be topping each piece of pie with a scoop of homemade ice cream.
With approximately 200 people making their way out for the long-running event each year, Vandurme said it has become the museum’s largest fundraiser.
“We do ask that those who attend make a small donation.”
However, with that donation visitors will be getting more than just a tasty treat, they will also have an opportunity to tour the historic museum.
“On the hour we will be giving museum tours. What is unique about our museum is that it is a registered Provincial Heritage Site because we have the last working blacksmith shop.”
Whether you go for the pie or you go for the tour, Vandurme said he is sure you will have a great time.
“Our Apple Pie Day is always a great day and I look forward to seeing everyone there.”
