HISTORY   (continued)
rehabilitated. Annually the Club sponsors outdoor Christmas lighting, giving prizes for same. Build Freedom with Youth was one of the most recent projects.

A Junior Women's Club was organized in 1933. During the war years the citizens of Highland Springs, both young and old, went all out for defense.

Highland Springs has changed in many ways in the past 63 years. We have grown in wisdom, population and achievements. With all the advantages of city life, we now have paved streets, sanitation facilities, street lights, house to house mail delivery, caution light, a Medical Center, many stores, movie theater and a bowling alley. Progress yes, because citizens stand together in the following organizations: Masons, Odd Fellows, American Legion Post, Parent-Teacher Associations, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Civic Association, Lions Club, Sertoma Club, Job's Daughters, Demolay, Home Demonstration Club and the Senior and Junior Women's Clubs.

Plans are in the making now for a Community Building.

Today Highland Springs,which shelters 5500 persons is a thriving community.

To the future we look with faith.

Where'd it come from?

The Springer Connection thanks Vicky Wright Covington, HSHS Class of '74, for providing the Recipe book for this feature.

The book, "Favorite Highland Springs Recipes" was written and published in 1953 by the Highland Springs Women's Club as a fund raiser.

The book has a foreword about the history of HIghland Springs, along with Recipes from some of the leading citizens of the town. The book is produced in typewriter text (recreated here) and has hand-drawn illustrations and advertisements for the local merchants that helped pay for its publication.

We have tried to faithfully recreate the imagery and feel of the book as it was printed 50 years ago. The recipes, page numbers and illustrations are presented as they were in the original book.

Disclaimer: The Springer Connection does not specifically endorse the recipes or illustrations presented here. If you should get heartburn from any of the recipes, or not agree with any of the depictions recreated, please call VERY long distance to the 1953 Highland Springs Women's Club.
