It was cherries abound last Saturday for the St. Mark’s Anglican Church’s annual Cherry Festival. Within the first 45 minutes of being open, all of the baked pies for sale sold out, said Anita Miller, one of the events volunteers and a member of the church.

She said about 750 pies were made for the weekend. The church sells about 500 baked fresh and frozen pies and hold the rest to sell by the slice throughout the afternoon, she said.

Among pies and fresh cherries, the event also offered the book sale, a kid’s tent, “The Holy Grill” barbeque which was open through the duration of the festival, and a variety of “treasures,” clothes and items for sale.

All proceeds raised go to the church for programming and operating costs.
