A Pillar of the Community

The Utsalady Ladies Aid is a non-profit organization that was created in 1908 by Constance Olsen and a handful of hard working women to serve the growing needs of the Utsalady community. One hundred years later, the Ladies Aid continues with the values set forth by those dedicated pioneer women.

The Utsalady Ladies Aid building was built in 1923 and is on the National Register of Historic Places.

Utsalady Ladies Aid Cookbook

When you gather together recipes from all of the fabulous cooks of the Utsalady Ladies Aid, you are bound to end up with an extraordinary cookbook. That is certainly the case with the "Utsalady Ladies Aid Cookbook."

First published in 2002, and now in its third printing, the cookbook includes recipes, but also share delightful photos and history of the women of the Ladies Aid and the Utsalady community.

You will find recipes for Evelyn Moshier's Salmon Pie, Edna Mellum's Favorite Hot Dish, Carrie Wang's Orange Meringue Pie, Mary Margaret's Chili for the Masses, Ginny Seay's Utsalady Bay Salmon Chowder, Jenny Mellum's Gumdrop Cake, Laura Holden's Sugar Cookies, Rosa Moa's Vegetable Soup and a host of other mouth watering recipes.

The book includes stories of Hattie's Beach Cooked Salmon as well as photos and recollections of life at Utsalady by Marian Larsen Hansen Turner, Orville Mellum, Betty Bonjorni and others.

The cookbook is dedicated to all women who share the values of faith, family and community and we pray that the next generation will embrace these same values that make us "Utsalady Ladies".
