Apple Pie Fundraiser Coming Up

Pipestone Flyer

    What do you do when you’re apple trees are full of nice ripe apples? Well the folks at Wetaskiwin Hospital’s Long Term Care Centre decided to bake some pies. The apples were picked right from the trees in the Care Centre’s courtyard. This coming Saturday, Oct. 26th from 2-4pm is your chance to come out and meet some of the Long Term Care residents, and sample some pie. The event is being organized by the Family Support Group and the Care Centre’s Rec Department. Their hopes are to raise a few bucks “to help maintain the courtyard”. Resident Recreation Therapist and all round go getter Susan Stryker says, “we consider this a social event for our residents and the public. Family members have really worked hard to help out. Everybody at Long Term Care is looking forward to this. Family members have worked hard to help out”. Susan adds that “the gardens are therapeutic, and the residents are involved in maintaining the courtyard and apple trees as well. This is the first time we are doing this and would hope to do it again next year”. Yes some of the residents are very sick and an event like this goes a long way in boosting morale. 

    The apples were picked from the courtyard and will be made into pies by “How Sweet It Is”. For $3.00 you can get a slice of pie and a beverage, whole pies are $10. Money raised will go to maintaining the courtyards. 

    If you are interested in getting out this Saturday afternoon Oct. 26th, come on down to the Long Term Care dining room on the south side of the Wetaskiwin Hospital. The event runs from 2-4pm and is in support of a worthy cause.
