Potpourri Club selling holiday cookbooks

The Potpourri Study Club has completed its cookbook project, and they are currently available for purchase.
Club President Beth Pounders said the club decided not to host the Breakfast with Santa fundraiser this year because of a lack of venue for the event. Instead, they put together a collection of recipes and created a club cookbook.
"The book has more than 150 recipes that we collected from club members, families and friends," Pounders said.
The cookbooks are available at Community Spirit Bank, Franklin Electric and the Franklin County Times. A copy can also be purchased from any club member.
Pounders said the club initially ordered 200 cookbooks, but there are only about 60 copies left.
"We can do a re-order, but that will depend on the demand for the cookbooks," she said.
The club is also planning a spring fundraiser in order to make up for the difference in revenue due to the fundraiser change.
"We want to do something this spring like a talent show or a pageant," Pounders said. "We're not sure yet."
Pounders said while the fundraiser events have changed this year, the club's purpose has not.
"We are still raising money for the libraries and our scholarship fund," Pounders said. "We just had to do some things differently this year."
The club's primary purpose is to raise money for the Russellville Elementary and West Elementary school libraries and the Russellville City Library.
