WHS Band “Grandma Miller Pies” and Holiday Greens Fundraisers

The Wilton High School Music Boosters are once again conducting two fundraisers to help defray the cost of the group’s spring 2015 Adjudication trip.

  • The first one is the “Grandma Miller Pies” fundraiser – right in time for the holidays. These fresh, homemade, 9-inch deep-dish fruit and nut pies are just the start. Made in South Londonderry, VT, the pies are delivered unbaked and frozen with baking instructions provided. Offerings include fruit pies (apple, apple crumb, pumpkin, cherry, strawberry-rhubarb, summer berry and blueberry), pecan pie, quick breads (banana, cranberry-orange-pecan, and lemon-blueberry), holiday stollen, chicken pot pie, and lemon pound cake.  All orders must be submitted by Monday, Oct. 27, with payment in advance, and pick up is the weekend before Thanksgiving.
  • The second fundraiser is for holiday wreaths, poinsettias and garland. Among the items are undecorated and decorated wreaths and kissing balls as well. Orders must be submitted with payment in full by Friday, Nov. 14, with pick up in early December.

A percentage of each item purchased helps defray the cost of the April 2015 trip.

To order any of the items, contact any WHS Marching Band member, or one of the two parent volunteers overseeing the project:  Liz Suchy (suchyhouse4@yahoo.com) or Amy Gepes (amymgepes@aol.com).

The music program at Wilton High School–consisting of the 160-plus member marching band, the largest student organization; chorus; orchestra; concert band and wind ensemble–is directed by Chip Gawle, John Rhodes, Marty Mead and Betsy deGroff.
