Weir High School’s Publications Department has come up with something
brand new to raise money.
After brainstorming, the Publications Department, which is led by
Alyssa Mick, has created a cookbook, The Taste of Tradition. Those
interested can get their hands on this cookbook for only $8, and a
second cookbook is half off.
Cookbook production started in February. Students spoke to teachers
and staff, asking them to contribute their favorite recipes. After
gathering more than 100 recipes, the class organized them according
to appetizers, beverages, soups, salads, vegetables, side dishes,
main dishes, and desserts. In addition to recipes, there are also
hints on how to prepare each food.
The cookbook also includes vintage, alumni photos on each page. Weir
High junior and member of the Publications Department, Paige
Dalrymple stated, “People will love this cookbook because it is
filled with various recipes, and the old pictures make it interesting.”
Those interested in purchasing the cookbook also can order it and
have it mailed to you for a shipping charge of $2 per book. Visit
myhighschooljournalism.org/wv/weirton/weir/ to print an order form.
Mail the order form to Weir High School, 100 Red Rider Road, Weirton,
WV 26062 Attn: Alyssa Mick. Make checks payable to Weir High School.
Sample cookbooks and order forms are located at the Mary H. Weir
Public Library and Rider Mart. Order forms are also available at Shop
‘n Save and the Three Springs Drive Kroger.
Mick stated, “I am pleased with how the cookbook turned out in the
end. The kids did a great job, and it was completely their creation.”
