Enjoying good food and good company has been a long-standing tradition at State Fair Community College, so in observance of the college’s 50th anniversary, college retirees compiled a cookbook filled with favorite recipes and stories from current and former employees. At least two other SFCC cookbooks have been published over the last 50 years.
Breaking bread is part of SFCC’s rich history, starting with Fred Davis, the college’s first president, and his wife Margie. The Davis family often opened their home to students, employees and community members for food and fellowship. Over the years, Margie and daughter Jane baked and served hundreds of dozens of cookies for their annual Christmas open house.
The Next Chapter cookbook is available in the Campus Store in Stauffacher Center for the Fine Arts on the Sedalia campus, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., except when the campus is closed. Cost is $10. Also on sale at the Campus Store is a limited edition SFCC 50th anniversary Christmas ornament for $20, which the Sedalia Area Chamber of Commerce commissioned. The ornament features an image of the Hopkins Student Services Center along with the 50th anniversary logo. Proceeds will go to the 50th anniversary fund.
