Recipe Luncheon – December 2013
It is time to share your favorite recipes for the annual Holiday Recipe Luncheon. The luncheon will be held on Thursday Dec. 12 at noon. Patrons are asked to bring the recipe to the library by 5:30 on Thursday, December 5th in order for us to compile the cookbooks. Patrons are asked to bring the recipe dish they submitted for the recipe book to the luncheon.

Please share a recipe, bring the prepared dish and join us for lunch. While the library luncheon is open to those individuals who submitted recipes and who prepared their recipes, anyone may stop by the library after the luncheon to purchase one of the cookbooks, which make wonderful Christmas presents. Bring your recipes in now and plan to bring the dish and share a great lunch.
