When you drive up curbside - we will give you a piece of pumpkin pie for each member of your family to take home and enjoy! Also, we have a special "We are grateful for you!" gift for each adult and child to take with you, too! When you stop by, feel free to bring along some canned and/or box goods to donate to our food drive which is taking place during the whole month of November.
