The First Balkan Pie Social, April 3, 2012

Mary & Dave Ellis Hollenhorst
Apple, banana cream, raspberry, blueberry, pecan, cranberry/raisin, peanut butter and rhubarb pies were served and sampled by pie makers and pie eaters at the Balkan Community Center. The pie social was hosted by Mary and Dave Ellis Hollenhorst.

No pies were rejected. Spectacular crusts and tasty fillings took center stage.

A yummy good time was had by all.

Watch for future gatherings: bring a pie if you like to bake, bring an appetite if you don't, all are welcome.

Donations were accepted and will be used to fund other events


Recently area quilters gathered at the Balkan Community Center to spend a four day weekend enjoying their mutual hobby of quilting. Creative juices were flowing to construct beautifully patterned fabrics into various quilts, wall hangings, bags, and table runners while enjoying their shared interest in quilting.

Kitty Nyhus, a resident of Balkan Township, will be offering future quilting classes at the Balkan Community Center. Anyone interested in these classes can contact Kitty at 218-254-4896 for more information on these classes.
