Get ready to say goodbye to the Pie Fest

A love of pie brought together the members of the Olympia Pie Bakers Guild, who’ve spent countless hours organizing the annual fest, raising more than $50,000 for the Thurston County Food Bank and Senior Services for South Sound’s Senior Nutrition Program over the past decade. “We came together because we really enjoy the art of pie and because we wanted to do something to serve the community with that skill and that interest,” the guild’s Kathy Kinard said. It’s also a lot of work for the guild’s seven members and part of the reason this fest will be the last.

From corsets to bullet bras, how fashions have reflected women’s place in society

Over the decades, women have worn corsets that whittled their waists and relocated their ribs. They’ve worn bras that pushed their breasts up or out or even down, and bustles that emphasized their posteriors. These diverse and sometimes painful efforts are the subject of “Suffer for Beauty” at Auburn’s White River Valley Museum. The exhibit takes a close look at both women’s undergarments and women’s history.
