Community cookbook will support 4th of July celebration

The Rolesville Fireworks 500 Club is seeking local recipes to be included in a community cookbook to be called “Taste of Rolesville.”

Submit recipes along with a high resolution photo to, or by mail to: Rolesville Fireworks 500 Club, P.O. Box 266, Rolesville, NC  27571. All entries must be received by March 1.
