On Sunday, the Bryson Lions treated the community to their annual sea pie dinner fundraiser, bringing out hundreds in support of the local community organization.
Lion Ed Gutoskie explained that the annual event is one of the major events in the group’s calendar each year. The money the afternoon generates goes towards paying for the general upkeep of the hall and park.
Sea pie is a tradtional dish, packed with alternating layers of pastry and seasoned meat, cooked slowly in a cast iron pot. Gutoskie explained that the preparations began on Friday night with the cutting of the meat. All day Saturday is spent in the kitchen, carfully layering the pies and preparing the sides.
