DUMC Peach Festival for 2017

From the Capital-Gazette:
It was just after 1 p.m., and hoards of visitors had already poured onto the church grounds for the annual Peach Festival, in search of a peachy keen treat — and there were plenty of options.
Peach pies, peach cheesecake, peach smoothies, peach cobbler and peach jam were some of the offerings at the church's annual peach fest on Saturday. There were also whole peaches, of course.
Hot dogs, burgers and barbecue were also available, but the tasty pale-orange fruit dominated the spotlight at the festival in its honor.
 "People just go crazy about those peach pies," said the Rev. Lisa Bandel, the pastor.
"It's pretty amazing to me. They'll get here an hour early to make sure they get their pie. They get in line and you can get rid of 200 pies in less than an hour."
For Saturday's festivities, church members ordered 95 bushels of peaches from Baugher's Orchards and Farms in Westminster to prepare 277 pies, 437 jars of jam and other sweet treats.
