Fernie residents Celia Rocca Matisi and Gisele Kitchen picked Fernie apples to make apple pie to sell as a fundraiser for a Christmas Dinner. You can buy the pies this week outside Overeatea for $10 between 11 and 5 until Thursday. The charity dinner will be at the Holy Family Church for seasonal residents that are new to town and don’t have family to spend Christmas with.
Thank you Celia and Gisele for your efforts in cleaning up apple trees and for such a great cause. Unmanaged apple trees and windfall fruit along with unsecured garbage are root causes for human/wildlife conflict in BC communities.
