As the beginning of Sylvan Lake’s Centennial year approaches, there’s more news about projects that will take place.

A Sylvan Lake Centennial Cookbook is being prepared by the Family Education Support program at Sylvan Lake and Area Community Partners’ Association.

“It will be like a legacy — around for ever and ever,” said organizer Giselle Campbell.

She explained they want everyone to be involved in submitting recipes and purchasing the fundraising cookbooks.

“We want to make it Sylvan Lake — get people who have lived here for years, their children and grandchildren, make it a generational thing. We also want to get submissions from newcomers.”

“We want everyone involved — sports teams, youth groups, churches — everybody who wants to submit recipes.”

The books will be ready by Mother’s Day, she said. Then they’ll also be sold at other Centennial events all year long.

Campbell said they’re looking for cover ideas which can be submitted to her by email at

A Facebook page for Sylvan Lake Centennial Cookbook will have directions on how to submit online. Written submissions will be accepted at the Community Partners office beside the Telus building on 50th Avenue.

“We have quite a team of volunteers working with the program,” said Campbell.

Another incentive for sale of the cookbooks is that Community Partners will make a cash donation to the organization that sells the most.
