More than a dozen members of Bedford High School’s Interact Club gathered in the Foods Kitchen after school on Monday to bake fresh apple and pumpkin pies for delivery to the residents of Bedford Green, the independent housing unit at the Edith Nourse Rogers Veterans Administration Hospital on Springs Road.

An assembly line was set up, with young women assigned to peeling and seasoning apples, preparing pumpkin, filling pie shells, and getting the finished pies into ovens to bake.  Organizer Annie Anderson said that she was gratified that so many club members turned up to help.

According to Jackie Larrivee at Bedford Green, the residents thoroughly enjoyed the homemade pies as the finale to their Thanksgiving meal.
