What started out as a simple fundraiser has turned into big profits for one local, Non-Profit Organization. On Monday night, Bill Jones, President of Branson Bank, presented a check in the amount of $2,500 to the Junior Auxiliary of Taney County (JA) during their Annual Awards and Officer Installation Banquet. The donation was the result of the Branson Bank Community Cookbook Project.

“What an honor it is to present the check to Junior Auxiliary; they volunteer countless hours which impacts many in our community,” said Bill Jones, President of Branson Bank.

Last May, Branson Bank began collecting recipes to create a community cookbook that would benefit a local, Non-Profit Organization. The group selected to receive the proceeds was chosen based on the votes of those who submitted recipes. Cookbooks went on sale in November and Branson Bank staff members did their part to sell the cookbooks prior to the Christmas holiday and thereafter. Over 500 Branson Bank Cookbooks entitled, “Recipes You Can Bank On” were sold to benefit Junior Auxiliary of Taney County.

Junior Auxiliary is a national women’s organization representing a serious endeavor on the part of women to be active and constructive community participants and to assume leadership roles in meeting community needs.  If you would like more information about Junior Auxiliary of Taney County, please contact Halley Fleming at 417-334-9696.
