Brundidge’s best ‘Bites’ at the library

The Brundidge Study Club, a longtime supporter of the Tupper Lightfoot Memorial Library, presented a copy of the club’s “Brundidge Bites” cookbook and a monetary donation to the head librarian Jean Carroll.

The copy of “Brundidge Bites” is the third volume of the club’s community cookbook. Volumes one and two were presented to the library when the books were made available to the public.

“Each year, the Brundidge Study Club makes a donation to our public library and the funds may be used for any need the library has,” said Delatha Mobley, club member. “This year, in addition to the monetary donation, we also presented a copy of the third volume of our cookbook that has been so popular. It contains, as all of our cookbooks do, recipes from the most recent Peanut Butter Recipe Contests which have been sponsored by the Brundidge Study Club for 10 years in conjunction with the annual Peanut Butter Festival.”

Mobley said each of the volumes contains the recipes from the previous contests depending on the years between publishings.

“This year’s Peanut Butter Recipe Contest will be held Saturday morning at Brundidge Station,” Mobley said.

“After the recipes have been judged, samples of the recipes will be sold on the Peanut Butter Festival grounds. The winners will be announced on stage and their names posted at the Brundidge Study Club’s booth.”

The monies raised from the sale of “Brundidge Bites” support projects of the study club.

“In addition to the library, the Brundidge Study Club also supports the local 4-H clubs and the Pike Regional Child Advocacy Center,” Mobley said. “We also have supported the Pike County Cattlemen’s Association. Not only is ‘Brundidge Bites’ a good fundraiser, it is also an example of the outstanding cooks that we have in the Brundidge area.”

The “Brundidge Bites” cookbook will be on sale at the Peanut Butter Festival in Brundidge on Saturday. For more information about the Peanut Butter Recipe Contest, call 735-2179.
