Fried pie sales
The Manila Business Women are taking orders for the annual fried pie sales. The pies will be available Friday night, Oct. 1, or Saturday morning at the Manila Depot. The pie sale is in conjunction with the Big Lake Chili Cook-off on Oct. 2.
Apple, peach, chocolate, apricot, or raisin pies will be available. Swihart Orchard in Leachville donated the peaches for the peach pies.
Orders may be placed by calling 561-4726; 561-3523; or 561-4693. Pies are $1.50 each.
In addition to the fried pie sales, the Business Women will be serving breakfast at the Depot on Saturday morning, Oct. 2.
Proceeds from the events help support the group in their community projects.
Tickets are also available for a 42" flat screen television to be given away at the Chili Cook-Off. The Business Women will also sponsor games for children at the chili cook-off. Proceeds from the television give-away will go to the annual Toys for Kids Christmas project sponsored by the Manila Business Women.
"We appreciate all of the support from the community," JoAnn Bennett said.
