“Pie Night” to benefit a new home for Andy Barlow of Hanover was held last Wednesday under the Hanover Picnic Pavilion on Main Street.
The fundraiser, hosted by the Trustees of the Gardner Roberts Memorial Library, was a huge success having raised over $7,000 in donations toward furnishings for the new home. Contractor Howard Bailey of Andover Log Homes is leading the project.
He and other subcontractors have generously donated all labor, equipment and supplies. The home is expected to be completed before the coming winter. The more than 150 people in attendance indulged in a selection of over 50 donated pies and supporters were happy to meet the guest of honor who was overwhelmed by the outpouring of generosity.
