Enjoy some pie in July at the Fructova school

This Saturday, the Boundary Museum will be celebrating its new location at the former school with a pie festival.

This Saturday, Fructova museum will be having Pie in July.

The event is to celebrate the new location of the Boundary Museum Society at the former school and to celebrate the heritage of the Boundary area.

“We’re at the Fructova School and Fructova in Russian means ‘of the fruit’ because there were many orchards that surrounded it,” Allie Relkoff, marketing events co-ordinator at the Boundary Museum, said.

“If you think of fruit in the area and you think of Doukhobor hospitality, you often think of baking and cooking, so we put it together and came up with fruit pies.”

Relkoff said they are putting it all together to have a great afternoon for families.

There will be a baking contest.

“We have prizes for the best fruit pie, fruit tart and fruit crumble,” she said.

“Those can be entered by both individuals or businesses.”

They will also have pies for sale, partially as a fundraiser for the museum, and partially because, “If you’re going to have Pie in July, you have to have some kind of pie to eat,” Relkoff said.

A local band, the Haworths will be playing, as well, the River’s Edge theatre group will be doing an encore production of Ticket’s Please.

KBS radio and Grand Forks Credit Union will be on-site.

“We’ve got lots of activities for kids,” she said.

The event starts at 1 p.m. at the Boundary Museum (Fructova School), 6145 Reservoir Road. The event will be outside in the museum’s new shade shelter. People are welcome to bring their lawn chairs.

The museum will be open throughout the event and there may even be some guests there that actually went to the school and might tell their stories.

For more info, call the museum at 250-442-3737.
