Wanted – more rhubarb!

Aledo Main Street needs more rhubarb.

Aledo Main Street bakers are running out of fruit (or is it a vegetable) – rhubarb, that is. So far the organization has made 95 large pies and 40 mini pies, but wants to have a few more pies to sell.

“We would like any rhubarb you have by Friday, so we can cut ahead of time,” says AMS volunteer Annette Speer.

“And if you have nothing to do Saturday (May 29) – come join us. We will be at the Mercer County Intermediate School (1002 SW 6th St., Aledo) after 9 a.m. making more pies,” says Speer.

Any rhubarb donations can be cut up and refrigerated until Saturday morning, or brought to Speer Funeral Home.
