    Cookie making parties are held by families each year around Christmas. The parishioners at St. Mary's in Danbury hold an extreme pie making party every October. Saturday was the day of extreme pies.
    While the annual take & bake Dutch Apple Pie sale was held on Saturday, it actually started on Thursday, September 7th when a group of ladies met in the Catholic school kitchen and made 441 packages of crusts (2 per package). Ads appeared in the newspapers the following week and sales began. On Monday night, October 9th, the Rosary Society ladies folded approximately 1000 boxes during their monthly meeting.
    All stations of the assembly line were set up in anticipation. The doors opened at 4:00 a.m. on Saturday morning, and the apple peeling began. By 7:30 a.m. the first pie was bagged and boxed, and the final one was done by 1:00 p.m. A mass cleanup operation ensued. Nearly everyone was out the door by 2:30 p.m. Final count was 862 pies and 450 packages of crusts.
    There are some extra pies and packages of crusts. If you are interested in purchasing, please give Carol Weber a call at 712-880-5000.
    If you could not pick up your pie on Saturday, please stop by the Catholic school by Friday, October 20th before 4:00 p.m. If you can't make it during the day, give Carol Weber a call at 712-880-5000 and she will meet you at 7:00 a.m. or after 6:00 p.m.

Firemen Visit DC

    Last week was Fire Prevention Week, and as is tradition, members of the Danbury Fire Department paid a visit to Danbury Catholic School. Class by class, the kids visited with the firefighters and checked out equipment. Before ending their visit, the kids participated in a relay race. The kids were challenged to put on a firemen's coat and, for the older grades, a hat and to carry an air tank. They then raced to a firefighter and back to the line where the next student did the same thing.
    To the left, Mandy Shea checks out the weight of an air tank while firefighter Brody Kafton helps out.

Duct Tape is so Awesome It Has Its Own Song

    Need something to stick together? Need to cover a leak? Want to make something cool? Duct tape is the answer! Nearly everyone knows the awesomeness of duct tape, and those who were at the middle school concert on Monday were reminded through song. The seventh and eighth grade choir sang of the tape's excellence during the concert.
    More pictures from the concert can be found inside this Review.
