If you love pie, you won’t want to miss this event. The Jerseyville United Methodist Church is hosting a free event for the community on Friday, March 14, at 7 p.m. showcasing upcoming artist Owen Pye.
Owen’s acoustical talents and fun-loving tales make this an event that all ages will enjoy. Owen Pye’s free concert will be held in the sanctuary of the Jerseyville United Methodist Church, which will be transformed into a charming cafe setting. Pieces of pie and fresh-brewed coffee will be available at the concession stand, along with juice and cookies for the younger crowd. Junior High and Senior High youth will also be given a piece of pizza pie. And it’s all free.
The free Owen Pye Concert and free pie are scheduled for March 14, Pi Day. If you’re thinking this might be the best Pi Day celebration you’ve ever been invited to attend, and this sounds too good to be true, don’t worry - it is true.
If you feel ins-pi-red at the Pye, Pie, Pi event, please feel free to make a donation to TWIGS, a non-profit organization that provides lunches during the summer to at-risk children. TWIGS has several locations set up every weekday during the summer, where children can walk to pick-up a free lunch. TWIGS works with the St. Louis Foodbank and Metro East companies to provide these lunches. All donations to TWIGS are tax-deductible. Make this Pi Day special! Bring a date, some friends or your whole family to enjoy an evening of Pye music and pie, all free. Envelopes will be available if you would like to support TWIGS and their goal of ending childhood hunger locally.
