Summer’s here. Know any students looking for summer jobs? The summer when Mary Emma Showalter’s now classic “Mennonite Community Cookbook” was released in 1950, various college students sold the cookbook as a way to make money for their college expenses.   Eugene Souder was one such entrepreneur who had about 15 young women and men selling […]
