Meat pies are always the first to go

Hand-written signs on South Shore Road pointed drivers and pedestrians to Lake Cowichan’s branch of the Royal Canadian Legion, Saturday, March 26, for one of the organization’s popular bake sales.

The baked goodies are provided by a group of about five members, of which sellers Connie Reynolds and Lola Sinclair are an integral part.

“It goes right back to the Legion,” Reynolds said, of the bake sales’ profits.

During the last bake sale, at Christmas, they raised $416, Sinclair said. Should they sell out completely, she expected about the same result during last weekend’s sale.

The first item to sell out is always Reynolds’ meat pies. The meat portion of the pie is what makes them unique, with deer, moose, chicken, and beef used, in different pies that are labeled accordingly.

Whenever not all items sell, Sinclair freezes what she can, and sets other items aside on a discount table at the Legion for subsequent days.

The next bake sale will probably be held in June, Sinclair said.

The Legion’s weekly advertisement on the Gazette classified pages will have the date and time, once it’s been determined.
