Happy Pi Day! There is only so much that can be said about 3.14159265359… so we’ll talk about the kind of pie that can be eaten.
Cornwall’s longest-serving mayor, Aaron Horovitz, seemed to know a thing or two about pies; pie-eating contests were one item on the agenda for his annual Mayor’s Childrens’ Picnics.
Posing with Mayor Horovitz, this young lady was the pie-eating champ at the 1952 Picnic at Central Park.
At the 1953 Picnic these boys were busy stuffing their faces … it might have been with pie.
From the 1955 Picnic, this pie-eating boy looks as though he’s about to burst.
These are among the several thousand photos and artifacts accessible at your Cornwall Community Museum during regular Archives hours.
