The First Lutheran Christian School in Kelowna plans to make and sell 2,500 homemade apple pies just in time for the Thanksgiving weekend.

Orders will be taken until Oct. 6 and can be made through students at the school as well as online at the school’s web site, by emailing or in person at the school, 4091 Lakeshore Rd.

The pies will be available for pick up at the school between Oct. 3 and 12. The apple pies are available in both sugar and sugar free varieties and are $8 each or five pies for $32. The pies are made by a dedicated group of school parents, church community members and the students themselves.

“The pie sale supports enhanced facilities and programs for our students,” said Gary Brucker, director of family life and interim director of operations at First Lutheran Christian School and Church. “Over the past 15 years, we have used the proceeds to purchase new computers for the school, technology training for our teachers, professional physical education programs and the adventure playground.”
