Cheryl Dowell serves up another piece of homemade pie during the 2009 Ice Cream Social and Pie in the Park in Bishop Hill’s village park.

An old-fashioned Ice Cream Social and Pie in the Park will be held in the Bishop Hill park on Saturday, Aug. 14, from 1 to 4 p.m.

Homemade pies and ice cream will be served. The ice cream is provided by the Bishop Hill Colony Bakery.

The event is sponsored by Bishop Hill Heritage Association board members. BHHA assists in the restoration of as many Bishop Hill colony buildings as possible and helps preserve the colony’s heritage.

The event is held in conjunction with the 4th Annual Bishop Hill Clay and Fiber Fest hosted by the Prairie Arts Center on both Saturday and Sunday.
