“Pie is not about perfection,” Beth Howard told the Beloved Book Group Gals of Newtown, when she was visiting in March 2013. Ms Howard, from Iowa, is the author of Making Piece: A Memoir of Love, Loss, and Pie, and travels the country bringing the message of “piece” — and pie making — to people needing comfort. Whether dealing with life or dealing with a testy pie crust, Ms Howard suggests always moving forward with confidence.

Customers of Friendly Citgo on South Main Street have a once-a-year opportunity today: The chance to throw a pie into store manager Carol Lafreniere’s face. Ms Lafreniere has organized another fundraiser for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA). Whipped cream pies are just waiting for customers who make a $5 donation to MDA. Carol and crew are hoping to raise $600 this afternoon, which will cover the cost for a child to spend one week at an MDA-sponsored summer camp. Shamrocks Against Dystrophy® are also available to help the fundraising effort.
