The president thanked Joyce Brower for organizing the raffle ticket sales
again this year.

Chuck Lanter of Blackfoot was the recipient of the raffle quilt this year.  He told how Joyce approached him at the "husband chair section" and convinced him that if he bought 6 tickets for $5.00 his odds of winning the quilt would be better!

The check of $3200 was presented to Pam Beus from the Blackfoot Senior Center for Meals on Wheels.

Chuck Lanter leaving with his prized possession!

when she received first place for her Swedish Sugar Cookies 
at the Eastern Idaho State Fair.  Editha was happy to share her recipe with us.


1 cup sugar
5 cups flour, sifted
2 tsp. baking powder
1 ½ cups butter
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla (or ½ tsp. almond extract, ½ tsp. vanilla,
                          or lemon flavoring can be used)
Mix sugar and butter until blended.  Add egg and beat until blended
and then add vanilla.  Mix baking powder and flour together.  Add the
first 4 cups of flour and then if you need more, you can add more gradually. 

Chill mixture for 1 – 2 hours in the refrigerator.  Roll out dough
approximately ¼ - ½ inch thick, rolling dough using powdered sugar
instead of flour.  Cut dough with a cookie cutter, arranging shapes on a
cookie sheet.  Use parchment paper if possible.

Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.  Cool on a wire rack. 
Recipe makes 2 dozen.
