La Providencia Guild
creating 2003 Cookbook
La Providencia Guild is preparing a new cookbook as a fund-raiser. The
committee is including recipes from current members who still reside
locally and those have relocated.
The committee needs many recipes and hopes that everyone who enjoyed
belonging to the guild will give generously to this worthy cause.
Publication and sales of the cookbook are scheduled for the early part
of 2003, so recipes need to be submitted as soon as possible. The
deadline is June 15, but the committee is hoping to receive them sooner.
Proceeds from the cookbook will go to Childrens Hospital Los Angeles,
the group's philanthropy.
