Generational cookbook in the works
PERU- The Friends of Peru Elementary School are working hard to raise funds for the maintenance of their new community center located in the former elementary school. The most immediate of the fundraising efforts are to design a cookbook and sell it and to raffle a Sampler quilt made by the Ladies of the Lake Quilters.
“We hope people will want to share their recipes with us,” noted Mary Pulisfer of FPES. “Maybe you want to share a recipe that has been passed down through the generations or one that's just your favorite. Anyone who has a connection with any part of the former school is welcome to be a part of this.”
As the recipes are collected, members of the group will proof read and ready them for publication. They request that you include your name, the maker of the recipe and if they had a well-known profession, please include it. Anyone with any connection what-so-ever with the school is welcome to submit their recipes.
The FPES are also planning their second pancake breakfast for Maine Maple Sunday and hoping you will join them on your way out to Thurston Family Farms or on your way to church. Once again, they will be providing a scrumptious pancake breakfast with sausage, bacon, coffee, tea, hot cocoa and the famous Thurston maple syrup.
The Sampler quilt will be on raffle that day. You can purchase chances for $1 per ticket or six for $5. All proceeds will benefit the maintenance and upkeep of the community center.
“The drawing will be held the day before Easter,” noted Pulsifer. “So, if you live local and win, you could have a beautiful quilt to give as an Easter gift.”
If anyone is interested in volunteering for the project can call Mary Pulsifer at 562-7050, Gloria Donahue at 562-4586 or Nancy Knox at 562-7556. Recipes can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or you can pick up a form at the Peru town office or contact any of the ladies above.
