UU Church Cookbooks for Sale
Make Great Christmas Gifts!
Saturdays, November 7, 14, and 21 • 11 am to 1 pm
During the summer months, the Membership Committee of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Brunswick (UUCB) began selling their newly printed cookbooks on the sidewalk in front of the church. The sales have been profitable, but the goal is to sell ALL the cookbooks to raise funds for the church. In the year of Covid-19, all the church’s fundraising events have been cancelled, so income from the Cookbooks helps to recover some of the monies lost.
Now that shoppers are starting to think about the upcoming holidays, the committee decided it would be a good time to sell more cookbooks with the idea that some people may want to buy them as Christmas or Hanukkah gifts. Since the cold weather has arrived, the sales have moved from the sidewalk to inside the entryway of the church on three consecutive Saturdays in November: Nov. 7, Nov. 14, and Nov. 21. The time of sales will be 11 am to 1 pm. UUCB members will be inside the entryway of the church and will let you inside to make your transaction. Free gift wrapping will be available as well. Please wear a mask and come with exact change or a check made out to UUCB.
The title of the cookbook (“SoUUps On”) comes from one of the church’s community events that is held annually. “SoUUps On” is a potluck event where church members bring soups, chilis, breads, and desserts to share. The delicious food inspired the Membership committee to share these and other members’ recipes in a cookbook. The whimsical spiral bound cookbook costs $10 and features 250 recipes divided into 6 different sections: Soups & Salads, Breads (including rolls. biscuits, muffins, and scones), Main Dishes (including breakfast/brunch, meat, seafood, vegetarian, vegan, and pasta dishes), Side dishes, Appetizers, and Desserts. The book also contains many pages of helpful cooking hints along with a few colored pictures of the church and its events.
If you are not able to pick the book up during the appointed time, contact Sue Michaud at 207-729-4857 or firstname.lastname@example.org to make alternative arrangements. For an extra $3.50, the book can be mailed to you or a loved one.
The Unitarian Universalist Church of Brunswick is located at the corner of Pleasant Street and Middle Street, across the street from the library.
