JCHC Auxiliary Plans Salad Festival Cookbook

Salad Festival Cookbook Planned


            FAIRBURY – This year marks the 50th annual Jefferson Community Health Center Auxiliary Salad Festival, with the event set for Thursday, May 21. In honor of the 50th Salad Festival, the JCHC Auxiliary is planning a commemorative custom cookbook.

Auxiliary members, past members, as well as staff members of JCHC, Gardenside, Bob and Wauneta Burkley Wellness Center and Cedarwood are invited to contribute recipes.

Recipe contribution sheets and instructions for putting in recipes on line are available from Lana Likens at JCHC at (402) 729-6855 or by emailing

“Recipes from past auxiliary members and their families are very welcome,” Likens said. “If someone has recipes which may have been available at salad festivals in the early years it would be wonderful.”

The cookbooks are anticipated to be ready for sale at this year’s JCHC Auxiliary Salad Festival, set for Thursday, May 21 at the Fairbury Elks Club.

The cookbooks will be professionally published and will be a keepsake. Money raised will be used for JCHC Auxiliary projects, including scholarships, Christmas gifts for Gardenside residents and spoons for newborns at JCHC.

Hard copy recipes must be submitted no later than Monday, March 30. On-line recipes must be submitted by no later than Monday, April 6.
