As a fundraising project for jail restoration, the Fulton County Historical Society is preparing a local cookbook. Anyone is invited to submit your most popular family recipes. There is no charge to enter recipes and you may later purchase cookbooks for $10 as gifts – a nice way to share favorite foods with friends and the larger Fulton County community. In order to have the finished cookbook ready for the annual Fulton Fall Folk Festival in October, all recipes need to be submitted by July 15. Submit recipes in handwriting and mail them to the Fulton County Historical Society, Box 115, McConnellsburg, PA 17233 or send recipes on e- mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, in which case they won’t need to be retyped with a chance of error.
