                       THE A. C. C.
           [The Amateur Cooking Club]

      A cooking club has been organized in Brainerd to be known as the A. C. C. [The Amateur Cooking Club]. The business meeting was held on Wednesday afternoon at the residence of Mrs. Mulrine on Broadway north, at which Mrs. A. V. Snyder was elected president and Mrs. C. F. Kindred, secretary and treasurer. The object of this society is for social intercourse and a general good time, it being decided to meet every other week at houses of the different members, each member providing a certain dish for the dinner or supper as the case may be, which is given to her by ballot. It has been decided to hold the first meeting at Mrs. Mulrine's on Wednesday, January 7, 1885, at which time a grand dinner will be given. The following named ladies took part in the preliminary proceedings:
      Mrs. F. M. Cable, Mrs. G. S. Fernald, Mrs. A. V. Snyder, Mrs. S. Alderman, Mrs. H. H. Barber, Mrs. J. L. Smith, Miss Halstead [sic], Miss Mabel White, Mrs. J. H. Bryant, Mrs. [Dick] Howard, Miss Smith, Miss A. Mulrine, Mrs. Ed. Hazen, and Mrs. C. F. Kindred. (Brainerd Dispatch, 05 December 1884, p. 3, c. 4)

                  A Royal Dinner.

      The time set for the first dinner of the A. C. C. [The Amateur Cooking Club] was on Wednesday last, the 7th of the present month, at the residence of Mrs. Mulrine, and, from what information we can glean, it was a success in every particular, and those in attendance report a right royal repast, which was gotten up by the members of the club. The following is the bill of fare, with the names of the ladies and the particular dish that was prepared by each:
      Soup, prepared by Miss Mulrine.
      Fish, prepared by Mrs. E. Hazen.
      Turkey, prepared by Mrs. A. V. Snyder.
      Vegetables prepared by Miss Guest.
      Puddings, prepared by Mrs. S. F. Alderman and Mrs. F. M. Cable.
      Bread, prepared by Mrs. C. E. Smith and Mrs. C. F. Kindred.
      Cake, prepared by Mrs. J. H. Bryant and Mrs. J. L. Smith.
      Coffee, prepared by Mrs. G. S. Fernald.
      Tea, prepared by Miss Mabel White.
      Salad, prepared by Mrs. H. H. Barber.
      Cranberry Sauce, prepared by Mrs. J. R. Howes.
      The next meeting will be held at the residence of Mrs. H. H. Barber, on Seventh street, on Wednesday, January 21. The organizations bids fair to become very popular. (Brainerd Dispatch, 09 January 1885, p. 3, c. 3)
