Treasured Recipes and Recollections huge hit, more being orderedThe Historical Society’s Treasured Recipes and Recollections cookbook was a tremendous success, according to society president Danny Nichols. “We had sold all 150 by 7:30 p.m. Friday night,” Nichols explained, adding that there were numerous requests for additional books from disappointed visitors to the society’s booth.
“We decided to take prepaid reservations for the book’s second and final printing.” Nichols said that another 75 books are being ordered, and about 60 are already .
However, if more than 75 orders are received by the deadline date, all prepaid orders will be filled, thanks for accommodations being made by the printer for a one-time-only special reprinting. “We had people buying as many as 10-15 books for gifts,” he said. “After people saw it, many of them wanted extra copies. We were amazed at the response, but then we all know how great our and Cannon County cooks are.”
Along with dozens of interesting and delicious recipes, the photos, stories and memories shared by the contributors endeared the book to many who saw it, Nichols observed. “We must have the order no later than Monday, August 10, to ensure that the books will be ready for pickup at our regular Society meeting,” Nichols said.
