Local blog recognizes local cooks

December 18, 2008

It’s fun to see the reach of the Sesqui events. Just last week I noticed that Phyllis Erickson and Peggy Metz were recognized in their local Starbuck blog becuase they will have their recipes featured in a cookbook sponsored by the Sesquicentennial Commission.

The cookbook does make a great gift!

Thanks to Anthony Middle School, Minneapolis, MN- teacher Paul Sommers and student Zachary Reidell, and Northeast middle school-teacher Patricia Nelson and the after-school History Club and MPS Community Educationfor the research on December’s Day in History.

Thanks also to Minnesota’s Learn and Serve America Service Learning Program for their help.
