Bake like Jama for good causes


WILMINGTON — The late Jama Hayes, an exceptionally devoted Clinton County community leader and an honored Outstanding Woman of Clinton County, is still contributing to her community through her sister, Dr. Ruth Hayes.

Dr. Hayes, with the help of Jane Vandervort, Sharon Newton and Marcy Hawley of Orange Frazer Press, have created a beautifully written cookbook to honor Jama and her famous recipes. This lovely book features recipes and some personal notes Jama added to help in preparation and presentation.

Jame became quite famous for her pie-baking skills, especially her Lattice Top Cherry Pie.

Dr. Hayes will be donating all proceeds from the sale of the book, entitled Jama’s Favorites, “Come, and have Dinner!”, to several non-profits Jama supported in Clinton County.

To honor Jama’s memory and life, you may purchase the cookbook for $14.95 through the Clinton County Leadership Institute — please call 937-382-7120 or call Cathy Koerner at 513-490-8182.

The Clinton County Leadership Institute is at 140 E. Sugartree St., Wilmington; email [email protected]. The Clinton County Leadership Institute is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing opportunities for community-minded people to network, to learn about Clinton County, and to serve in leadership roles in their communities.
