New programming series

FOOD FOR THOUGHT..

As December approaches, many of us are thinking about the holiday season and entertaining friends and family.  Please join staff member, Sally Lee, for an informal hour program of sharing a beloved holiday recipe with others.

During that time participants will tell others about the origin or creator–like Gramma’s Sugar Cookies, which is a recipe we still make today with our grandchildren.    We ask that each participant  bring samples to share and a copy of the recipe.  We will make copies to share with others in attendance.

Mark you calendars and start looking through those recipes….
