Gold PRIDE to sell local cookbooks
Just in time for those holiday get-togethers, members of Basehor Gold PRIDE have been busy putting the finishing touches on the organization's cookbooks.
The cookbooks, which are filled with dozens of recipes, were compiled after members collected recipes from friends and family members.
Nola Cooper, the president of Gold PRIDE, said the members have felt an urgency in recent days to get the cookbooks completed, especially since she thinks they would be a great stocking-stuffer.
"That's the reason we've been trying to get it ready," Cooper said. "It would make a good Christmas gift and it doesn't cost all that much."
The cookbooks, which cost $5 each, are available at Basehor City Hall, some banks and area businesses, at local community events and by calling any Gold PRIDE member. Several orders have already been received, members said.
Proceeds from sales of the cookbooks will be used to improve the community, primarily by helping to provide scholarships to graduating students at Basehor-Linwood High School.
Cooper said the organization is always looking for new ways to expand its membership, and she's hopeful more people will begin to become familiar with what Basehor Gold PRIDE is all about.
"We want to encourage other people to get involved and build our organization," Cooper said.
Basehor Gold PRIDE meets at 12:30 p.m. on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month. For more details on where the meetings are or how to purchase a cookbook, call Nola Cooper at 724-1155 or Sue Arwine at 724-2970.
