NEW COOKBOOK!  The 150th Anniversary Committee has asked the PTL to take the lead in putting together a new cookbook in honor of our upcoming church anniversary.  Shelly Korte, Jill Janssen, and Crystal Klug are heading up the Cookbook Committee.  Included is a form you can utilize to share one of your tried and true recipes.  In particular, the committee is looking for “heritage” recipes – ones that have been in your family for generations and you are open to sharing.  Feel free to share as many recipes as you’d like.  The due date is Saturday, February 1, 2020. You can photocopy your recipe cards and submit them to the committee; please submit them (one recipe) per each 8 ½ x 11 inch paper.  This is to comply with the cookbook company’s policy for recipe submissions.  You are also welcome to email copies of your recipes to Shelly Korte at jonshelly@frontiernet.net. This cookbook will be a wonderful reminder/memento of all the great cooks who have been a part of our church and school!  Let’s get cooking on this! Additional recipe forms are available at the back of the church or in the school office.
