"Flat Rock Favorites" Cookbook Debuts
Members of the Flat Rock Merchants Association have contributed and compiled recipes for the 2010 "Flat Rock Favorites" cookbook. The cookbook was created in order to raise money for the various community projects and charitable organizations that the merchants association promotes. 100% of the profits from the sale of the cookbook will go towards these endeavors. Cookbooks are being distributed to our area merchants for sale to the public so be sure to look for it the next time you visit your favorite merchant. Each cookbook sells for $12.95 with payment by cash or check.
Every year it has been the mission of the Flat Rock Merchants Association to give back to the community that supports us. We began by donating money to the Flat Rock area schools Principal's Fund, as well as helping needy families during Christmas. Upon the death in 2008 of Flat Rock Playhouse executive director, Robin Farquar, the merchants started a scholarship in his name so that talented local children with limited means could participate in the Flat Rock Playhouse's YouTheatre. Association members are also responsible for supporting local farmers by organizing the Flat Rock Tailgate Market as well as showcasing great talent at the Summer Concert Music Series, held on the first Saturday of each month from June - October.
