November marked our seventh year of business in the Brighton community. We are grateful to each of you we have met along this journey and are honored to still be here to help what matters most.
One of our favorite parts of being a small business is that we get to know our clients and their families and build relationships with them over the years.
For the past eight years, we provide pies to our clients and they each get a choice of a pumpkin or apple pie during Thanksgiving. One of my favorite clients in our agency was Grace Fletcher. She would call me at different times throughout the year, sometimes in March or the summertime, just to make sure we were still giving away pie because it was her contribution for her family during the holiday. One year the weather was frigid cold and the roads were icy. Grace said she was too fearful of driving so I hand delivered her pie to her that year so she wouldn’t be without.
Grace passed away on November 2nd, 2020. I asked her family here in Brighton if I could dedicate our pie giveaway going forward in Grace’s memory. The family agreed, and we are proud to share our first year of “Pie & Grace.”
The COVID-19 Pandemic has made this year trying and uncertain for so many in our community and neighborhoods. Even though your Thanksgiving may look different this year, don’t forget two things – Pie & Grace.
