‘Seminole Basketball: From the Court to the Kitchen’

    A cookbook created by the booster club is helping Smithville High School’s basketball team recover from the devastation of the EF-5 tornado that destroyed the school and much of the town two years ago.
    “The Smithville Seminole basketball players took a hard blow when the April 27, 2011, tornado destroyed their gym,” said Michele Blaylock, of the Smithville Fast Break Booster Club.
    “The gym rebuilding has begun. If all goes as planned, it will be finished before basketball season begins next fall. Also, classes will be in session at the original campus when school starts back in August. God is blessing our little town!” Blaylock said.
    Proceeds from cookbook sales will help fund the purchase of needed equipment and supplies for the new facility.
    The cookbook features more than 540 recipes, including sugar-free desserts in the diabetic section and a canning/preserving section. It also includes a brief history of the school and a memorial for former long-time coach John Chrestman.
    Price is $12 plus $3 S&H. Mail order to Smithville Fast Break Boosters, c/o Michele Blaylock, 50218 Splunge Road, Greenwood Springs, MS 38848. For more information, call 662-315-7221.
