Bentley senior’s pie social very popular

It has been hosted there by the ladies of the Outlet Get-Together Club for many years and has become well known.

Each year following the Bentley parade on the Thursday of fair/rodeo week there is a exodus from main street of anyone who considers himself a senior over to the Bentley Community Church gymnasium to attend the free pie social offered.

It has been hosted there by the ladies of the Outlet Get-Together Club for many years and has become well known for serving up its variety of homemade pies and for a place to sit and visit.

There is not much space to visit anymore. For many years there have been line-ups outside the church doors with people waiting for space to get in. This year was no exception, and the lineup seemed even longer.

Every kind of pie imaginable seemed to be there, from many standard fruit pies and cream pies to more exotic pies, and even pies for diabetics.

A lot of pieces of pie were served! Club member Lorraine Connolley said, “We went through at least 60 pies (this year). We believe this was our best turn out yet for the pie social.”

Door prizes were again dawn for throughout the afternoon. This year the five door prizes were copies of the club’s newly published “The Back Burner” cookbook. The book had been in the works for a while but a real push was put on to have it available in time for the fair with Bentley’s Centennial theme this year.

“We were really pleased with the cookbook and the response we got in sales during the weekend,” stated Connolley.

Copies of the “The Back Burner” are available at Earthy Accents in Bentley or from Sandy Noble (748- 2280).

The Get-Together Club is one of the rare clubs that is not suffering from lack of members. Club members include Alexis Skeels, Sandy Turnbull, Tammy McDiarmid, Sandy Noble, Karen Park, Diana Spelt, Shirley Sawyer, Faye Cummins, and Tracy Brown, Bonnie Hoskin, Jamie Milot, Marcia Bruns, Lorraine Connolley, Candace Bajema, Kathy Wiese, Shirley Talsma, Stephanie Carlson, Celina Colgrave, Cindy Rose, and Florrie Skjonsberg with honorary members Jean Fraser, Mae Reimer, Rose Skeels, and Fern Snow.

Club members much appreciate having the use of the Bentley Community Church to host their event each year and are already looking forward to next year’s pie social.
