Calvary selling cookbooks to raise funds

Calvary selling cookbooks to raise funds

November 3rd, 2011 in News

Kyle Maddox, in front, and several other students from Calvary Lutheran High School carry boxes of cookbooks to a storage shed where they'll be held until dispersed. As a fundraiser, the school is selling the books in several different local outlets, including area Lutheran churches and Calvary's Gift Shop on Washington Street.

Over the past year, more than 300 family members and friends of Calvary Lutheran High School have contributed some 1,000 recipes for the school's first cookbook fundraiser.

The school's booster club is selling the book for $20 each (or $18 each for multiple copies) at various businesses, including Calvary's gift shop, 713 Washington St.

The school has 2,500 cookbooks, and hopes to earn $15,000-$20,000 to be used on capital projects, including a permanent sign outside the school.
