Provo Pie Supper 2018
Despite the steady drizzle of rain the community of Provo still turned out for their annual Provo Pie Supper to raise funds for their rural development center. Take a moment to appreciate that not only does the Provo community come together every year to raise funds, but it is also a valuable time to become a tighter knit community. In the era we live in people of all ages are constantly on electronic devices, entirely missing out on the experiences they have unfolding in front them in real life. Tonight children were on the playground, and others were playing old-fashioned games, others were enjoying jumping in the puddles that were slowing growing larger and getting muddy. Adults sat in groups huddled together talking and discussing the current events, politics, and their families. It was a time for people to be in tune with one another while supporting their community.
All volunteers were on hand to help run the games, collect money, work the raffles and auction, as well as serve food. Available for the evening was a full meal of barbeque sandwiches with sides and several homemade desserts. As the crowd began to grow for the evening, the auction started. Fall was making an appearance as several mums, and fall themed items were auctioned off.
Several children and adults alike were able to play games to win prizes including skee ball, Planko, and life-size tic-tac-toe. Many adults flocked to the cake walk which is a crowd favorite to take a chance on winning one of the several delicious deserts that had been donated to the fundraiser.
Overall, the unpredictable Kentucky weather did not dampen this annual event. As always, several people from our county participated and helped the community of Provo. The Provo Rural Development Center thanks all those who volunteered to make this event a success and all those who attended as well.
