Have a favorite holiday recipe? Consider submitting it to be part of the Rowley Historical Society’s updated cookbook. Recipes, along with your name and a short comment about the dish, if desired, should be sent to Diane McMahon, 14 Forest St., Rowley 01969.


The Rowley Public Library Book Club will meet tomorrow at 6:30 p.m. to discuss the memoir, “Blood, Bone & Butter.” Author Gabrielle Hamilton, chef-owner of Prune restaurant, writes of the unexpected places life can take you when you are least expecting it and of the comfort that food can bring along the way. All are welcome to join in the club discussion.


In observance of the holiday, the Rowley Public Library will be closed on Monday, Dec. 31, and Tuesday, Jan. 1.


Rowley Family Connection is working with other sponsors on a fun-filled event for young children enamored of teddy bears. The Teddy Bear Clinic will be held on Saturday, Jan. 12, from 10 a.m. to noon in the Salisbury Elementary School cafeteria.

Children are invited to bring their favorite bear for a check-up, a meet and greet with Dr. Teddy that promises plenty of photo opportunities, a session of kid aerobics and enjoyment of healthy snacks.

The interactive clinic sponsored by Triton District Family Connection Agencies and Anna Jaques Hospital in Newburyport is designed to help children feel comfortable when visiting a doctor.
