This intrepid group of volunteers made 272 pies.

All you need is 132 lbs flour, 75 lbs lard, 40 lbs sugar and 640 lbs of apples. Then gather 32 friends, including 5 dough makers, 7 bottom crust rollers, 3 top crust rollers, 14 peelers and slicers, 1 runner, 1 bagger and one person to phone, sell and distribute.

The funds went to the Valemount Seniors Housing Society.
