Pelham--  The Pelham Senior Center made its own personal cookbook, and they say it's the best fundraiser they've ever had.

In one month, they have sold $4,000 worth, but half will go to the publishing company.

Recipes were collected by senior citizens, family members and staff. "Since most senior citizens don't cook anymore, we thought it was a good idea to save their recipes for future generations, so we went to work on it," said the book's creator, Lou Pullen.

The Pelham Senior Center has more than 100 books left, at ten dollars each. The money raised will go toward the center's craft account and possibly to buy a storage building.

The cookbook's best sellers are C. P. Cowart and Audrey Bass.
