    Wow this is getting exciting & St. John is going to be part of the action. On 22 July, Charter Oak will be all 'a-buzz' with thousands of bike riders who will be riding their bikes across Iowa in the annual RAGBRAI biking event. Charter Oak is a "Passing Through Town" & also the last town on day 1 before the 1st "Over Night town, Denison. All day Sunday, July 22 Charter Oak will be hosting; hot, sweaty & weary riders who will be looking for; food, drinks, rest & fun. St. John is setting up a vendor booth on Main street together will all the other vendors both local & from out of town. St. John will be selling homemade pies, frozen candy bars, bananas & bottled water. RAGBRAI riders LOVE homemade pie & our pies will definitely be a BIG HIT! Here's the catch.... We NEED YOUR HELP & we NEED plenty of willing, 'kind souls' who are prepared to make a few HOMEMADE PIES.  We also need some more 'kind souls' who 'are prepared to help us out on the big way. We have small jobs for Big Boys too: Can you help us? Will you help us? All pies will need to be the type that are double crust or streusel topped with a fruit filling. Due to Food inspection Regulations we are not allowed to serve creamy or pudding pies, only fruity ones. eg. Cherry, Rhubarb, Apple, Peach, Blueberry, Strawberry Rhubarb etc. All the proceeds from our sales will go towards much needed church building repairs eg. fixing the cracks in the walls or towards new carpeting. Your help is wanted, Your help is needed, Your help is appreciated, Your help, helps our church! you can't help physically maybe you can help us financially.
