St. Patrick Celebrating 100 Year Cookbook –gratitude-clipart-clip_art-cookbook1

St. Patrick School/Parish will be publishing a cookbook filled with the best recipes from the best cooks in our community – YOU!
The best part about this is that ALL the profits from the sale of the cookbooks will go right back to the school to help with the cost of the playground.
We are kindly asking that you submit 3-5 recipes of your family’s favorite recipes.  We are also going to have a special children’s section in the book so please include their recipes as well.
We anticipate a great demand for the cookbooks and we want to be certain to order enough.  To reserve your copies, email Melanie Colton at (Enable Javascript to see the email address) with the number of cookbooks you will be purchasing and your recipes. Or return the slip below to the school office or the basket in the back of church.  I have included a recipe template and there will be more available in the back of church.  Please DO NOT send payment with this form.  Once we are ready to print, you will be sent an email or an announcement to confirm the number of cookbooks to order.  The price of the cookbooks will depend on how many families participate.  Right now we are just trying to gather the recipes and get an estimate of how many cookbooks to order.  Thank you kindly for you continued support and participation.
We hope to have these cookbooks available in time for Christmas so we ask that you send in your recipes before  October 23 so we can meet the deadline.  Please click on the link for the recipe template:  Recipe Template
