On behalf of the AIO Food Pantry, Utility Assistance and Child Hunger Programs, we would like to thank everyone involved in providing the most successful Pies on Parade fundraiser to date! This 15th Annual Pies weekend was incredible! And we are grateful.
To the Pies on Parade Planning Committee, Historic Inns of Rockland and area businesses, you have again masterfully pulled off an incredible weekend of events. We very much appreciate the time you spend organizing every detail, arranging publicity, putting together the silent auction, creating a scavenger hunt, opening a shop or facility that might not otherwise be open on a January weekend, and so much more. We thank all of the pie chefs - we know you invest a lot of your own resources in baking and spend long hours creating your delicious treats. The work you have all done will make a huge difference in many peoples’ lives.
To our AIO Volunteers who don our red aprons so beautifully, greeted eager pie goers at each of the venues, answered questions about our organization, and handed out tickets at the Lighthouse Museum. You are our most valuable asset, this event could not run without your volunteer energy.
To the participants of the Pies on Parade events - Friday night Silent Auction at the Rock Harbor Brewery, the Saturday Camden Scavenger Hunt and the Sunday Pies on Parade in Rockland - your silent auction bids, ticket purchases and donations of heating oil support the AIO Programs and your neighbors across Knox County. Thank you for spending time in Midcoast Maine in January enjoying our wonderful community. (Mark your calendars for next year event - January 24-26, 2020)
On behalf of the AIO Board, Clients and Volunteers, our sincere thanks,
Marty Shaw and Linda Pieper
