Cookbook Profits Donated to Friends of Bassett
Fly Creek Cider Mill continues to support new Mobile Cancer Screening Coach
This week The Fly Creek Cider Mill & Orchard donated $717 in profits from sales of their 150th Anniversary Cookbook to the Friends of Bassett’s commitment to a new mobile cancer screening coach. The cookbook is a collaborative effort by the Mill’s Brenda Michaels and Linda Pokorny. Recipe entries were solicited from the Mill’s customers and friends, combined and bound into a commemorative book that celebrates cooking, especially with apples.
Brenda Michaels, co-owner of the Mill said, “This cookbook project honors Cyndi Galland, a loyal and dedicated team member who inspired us all and who contributed greatly to the success of today’s Mill. Sadly, she lost her battle with cancer. In her memory all profits from this cookbook will go to early detection and screening of cancer.”
Replacing the aging mobile mammography van, the new coach will be equipped with the latest high-tech diagnostic equipment. The greater range and self-contained technology will enable Bassett to reach people where they live and work with diagnostic services: Pap smears for women, prostrate screening and tests for men, and colorectal cancer and skin cancer screenings.
The Cookbook is available through the mail by calling the Mill toll free 800-505-6455 or visiting the Mill’s website at www.flycreekcidermill.com.
