Cooking On The Square

The 13th annual Cooking on the Square fundraiser to benefit Putnam County's chapter of Habitat for Humanity, has been scheduled for this Friday, Oct. 30, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The event features the opportunity for patrons to purchase a handcrafted bowl, which they can fill with all of the gumbo they can eat. The $15 cost also includes drinks from Coca-Cola, rice, bread from Great Harvest Bread Company and desserts. Money raised from the event will go toward construction of the fifth Cooking On The Square house, and the 55th house overall that's been built by Putnam County Habitat. This year, there will be two lines to pay for and pick up bowls -- one at the Jefferson Avenue-Spring Street intersection and another on Broad Street near the basement entrance to the Courthouse. Both will be open at 11 a.m. For more information, call 528-1711.
