Pot Pie Palooza Returns!
By popular demand and after a phenomenal success last year, Pot Pie Palooza is BACK to benefit Clymer Library! From January 14-29 stop by the library or Mountaintop Lodge (2137 Rt. 940, Pocono Pines, PA 18350) to order your fresh pie of chicken, beef, or veggie for $7.50 each. They will make a wonderful dinner, or freeze them for later!
Pick up your pies at Mountaintop Lodge on Friday, February 1 between 10AM and 6:30PM. To pay for your pies, either prepay with cash or check when ordering (make out checks to Lake Naomi Club) OR pay upon pickup (cash, check, credit card, or LNC Member charge for LNC members).
You can also donate pies to Women’s Resources of Monroe County or Five Loaf House by indicating so on your donation when prepaying.
In 2018 we sold 867 pies… can we reach 1,000 this year? Only with your help! Give back to your library and enjoy some of the best the Poconos has to offer!
