A Slice of My Day

 Larry Yoder is bringing Carol Van Fossen Brown from CL Tours and Don Wagler to the park with three Orange Cream Pies. They are Esther Overholt's famous Orange Pies that won second place at the Annual Pie Contest on January 24, 2014 hosted by Everence Bank  in Pinecraft. I met the buggy at the corner of Graber and Fry and followed them into the park. I had a few pieces of Esther's famous pie before, so I felt safe following them with hopes of getting a piece of pie.

 After my mini speech I was offered the first piece of pie.

 After the pie this small group scattered and did their own thing which was browsing Yoder's Deli and other places as a few people came back with Whoopie Pies.

Most of this group, in not all were from West Virginia. I enjoyed visiting and answering their questions.

And the buses came in.
