4-H Adult Leaders
Centennial Cookbook
Fond du Lac County 4-H Adult Leaders Board is compiling a cookbook of favorite recipes from current and past 4-H members and leaders. To tie it to the centennial, we will include quotes and pictures of 4-H from the past. In order to get enough recipes to fill a cookbook, we ask that each member submit at least one recipe, although more are encouraged. There are two different ways to submit recipes. You can fill out the recipe collection sheet and either mail it or drop it off at the UW-Extension Office or you can fill out the recipe collections sheet(s), scan on your computer and email to: The cutoff date to submit recipes is March 15, 2014.
