Pie Supper The schoolhouse was used on Sundays for church. In the late fall, a pie supper would be held there. Ladies would bake a pie and wrap it up fancy, and the men would bid on the pies. Usually you had to eat with the guy who bought your pie. Then, in December, very close to Christmas, a "Christmas Tree" was held with the proceeds of the pie supper. This also included a visit from Santa Claus. A bag of goodies was handed out to everyone who came. In this bag was an apple, an orange, some peppermint sticks, some Wrigley's gum, a few nuts, and some chocolate drops. I still remember how good that tasted. A few people would show up who had not participated in the pie supper, but no one ever said anything, and the goodies were shared by all.
