COOKBOOK PROFITS DONATED TO SPAN.....On Saturday, Jan. 12, profits from the sales of the 2012 Vickery Place cookbook, Recipes and Recollections: Vickery Place Cooking since 1911, were presented to two Senior Pet Assistance Network (SPAN) representatives - President Laurie Jennings and Jann Horswell.
SPAN was founded by Lake Highlands resident, Adelle Taylor, in an effort to help low-income elderly residents with their beloved pets by providing them pet food and basic veterinary care when needed.
Vickery Place residents, Kathy Harris and Shelia Huffman, co-edited a commemorative cookbook in 2011 to celebrate their historic East Dallas neighborhood’s 100th birthday. The cookbook is filled with recipes from past and current residents of Vickery Place and neighboring Lower Greenville and Henderson Avenue restaurants. It contains photographs dating back to the 1920
