What do math and baking have in common? That would be today, March 14, of course!
Today is Pi Day, named so in honour of the 03.14.XXXX written date. What better way to celebrate the day in a rounded-out way than with some delicious pies?
That's exactly how they're doing it over at the Swift Current Museum today, with the pies being supplied by Sloane Gowan of Flatland Foods in Swift Current.
Corla Rokochy, the program coordinator for the Swift Current Museum, is extending the invitation to everyone in town to come around and get a slice of pie.
"We are starting from 10 a.m. till 4 p.m., and for $5, you get a piece of pie and a drink," said Rokochy.
Pi is the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. No matter the circle size, the pi value is always approximately 3.14. Even for a circular pie.
"There's going to be Apple and Blueberry while they're left, and then it'll be a mixed bag after that," said Rokochy. "So make sure you get here early to get the homemade pie from Flatland Foods."
While folks come in for the pie, they can also take a gander at the displays in the museum, including their newest exhibit, 'Cipher, Decipher'.
"Which is here until the end of the month, so you have a chance to check that out," Rokochy said. "No math questions required, and no skill-testing questions to get the pie. We hope to see everyone come out."
