More than two hundred people helped St Patrick's Primary School launch their community cookbook From Us to You last Friday night.
School principal, Kate Harney, described it as an extraordinary evening.
"It was a massive celebration for St Patrick's School and the Stawell community, as more than 1000 samples of food were tasted," Mrs Harney said.
Music was provided at the launch by Soft and the school choir, with Zumba dancing demonstrations also conducted.
The generosity of such an endearing community contributed to the launch of this very popular cookbook From Us to You.
From Us to You will make a great Christmas gift for the foodie in your family or for young people heading out on their own for the first time. There are more than 20 recipes that are tried and tested favourites, so you can't go wrong.
The book features images of current St Patrick's School students, captured by Stawell photographer Kerri Kingston, as well as a number of other shots that showcase Stawell.
Copies of From Us to You are priced at $25 and can be purchased from Monaghan's Real Estate, Carey Covers, Harney's Freighters, Stawell Amcal Pharmacy, PetStock Stawell and Neily's Cafe.
All proceeds from the fundraiser will go towards smart boards, Apple televisions, heating and cooling systems, locked cupboards and school enhancement.
