Rush City, MN—“Pie University” will hold its introductory session on 
National Pie Day, Monday January 23, in Rush City, one hour north of the Twin 
Cities on I35.  The 6 p.m. event is held at the St. Croix River Education 
District building at 425 S. Dana Avenue in the downtown area.
The focus of the evening is pie and art related to pie.  There will be pie 
songs to sing, borrowed from the repertoire of the Pie-Alluia Chorus from the 
“Homemade Pie Capital of Minnesota” at Braham; pie art will be on display 
and attendees will view it and then compose a group poem about their 
responses.  This will be rehearsed in the style of reader’s theater by 
everyone in attendance, and then recorded to be screened in early May at a 
Makers’ Exhibit in the same location.  Each guest will earn a 
“Certificate of Attendance at Pie University”.  Refreshments are included 
and there is a sliding fee of $7-$10 to attend.  Pre-register by calling
