Medical Patient Modesty is doing a Pie Bake-Off / Silent Auction (http://tasteoflocalfood.com/pie-bakeoff/) in Morganton on Saturday, March 7th from 12-3:30 PM at Social Hall in the basement of Collett Street Recreation Center to benefit Medical Patient Modesty (http://www.patientmodesty.org) and we will need a number of volunteers (some must be teenagers under the age of 18).
