The Sesquicentennial cookbook is a great book! Especially considering that it was put together by a lot of people who had never done anything like it before!
We had a large number of “old fashioned” recipes submitted by the younger generation.
Old family recipes, for example, Mary Straw’s Pumpkin/Persimmon cookies. It’s the time of year that persimmons are ready so we will just give you that recipe! The ingredients are:
3 c. flour
1 tsp salt
2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
¾ tsp baking soda
2 c. sugar
1 c. oil
2 eggs
1 c. pumpkin or persimmon pulp
½ c. nuts and/or raisins, if desired
Combine dry ingredients. In a separate bowl cream together wet ingredients. Add dry to wet mixture and combine well.
Stir in raisins or nuts, if desired. Drop by teaspoon onto greased baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-14 minutes.
This is just one recipe of many in our cookbook which is still available. They make a great Christmas gift for only $10. Come in and get a bunch!
The Sesquicentennial committee donated the license plates to the library. If you would like one just as a souvenir, come to the library. They are here!
If you like haunted houses, the Scare-on-the-Square it on the 21st, 22nd, 28th and 29th of this month.
It’s a very scary Halloween activity. At 6 pm is the “mild” version and then beginning at 7 pm is the full, lights out, version. Tickets for those 15 year of age and under are just $3 and for those over 15 are $5.
A lot of high school students and other people dress up just to “scare” you, but don’t ask us who. We are sworn to secrecy! This benefits the library. So THANK YOU for participating.
