Taken from the Crane News, published November 11, 1999.


     Durning the Depression and also back in pioneer days when a church was in need of money, they had a unique fund-raiser.  I have been told that this happened pretty often.  Their saying was, "Trust in the Lord and a Pie Supper."  With an abundance of homemade pies that were auctioned and served, money was raised.  Now they couldn't have a garage sale as some of us do now for several reasons.  One, they didn't have a garage.  Two, everything they had was needed and used by themselves with nothing extra.  The modern garage sale is a way of life.  It is hard to believe the bargans you can pick up.  Is this a sign of good times or bad times?  Good times because you have a lot of extra "stuff" or bad times because you have to sell some of your "treasures".
