The Egmont Community Club is raising funds to repair the 75-year-old community hall. The club has established a foundation fund and plans to raise $25,000 to install a proper cement foundation for the hall.
One of the fund-raising projects is an Egmont Heritage Cookbook to be published in time for Christmas. The cookbook will feature stories of the Egmont area and recipes that reflect that heritage.
Categories include logging and fishing stories, Native stories, hunting and camping, vacation experiences and early Egmont life. All recipes will be considered including seafood recipes, hunting and camping recipes, holiday recipes and Native recipes.
Anyone who has lived or vacationed in the Egmont area is invited to submit stories, pictures, ideas and recipes. The deadline for submissions is July 31.
Information can be emailed to email@example.com or mailed to Egmont Heritage Cookbook, Box 60, Egmont, B.C., V0N 1N0.
