Raisin some interest and some fun
raisin bread 7

The Effingham County Chamber of Commerce baked up one of the Georgia Legislature’s favorite traditions Thursday.

Chamber staff and volunteers made about 350 loaves of raisin bread to give to the state's elected officials at Effingham Day at the Capitol.

The raisin bread baked in the Ebenezer Middle School kitchen was made from an old Salzburger recipe, according to Chamber executive director Rick Lott.

The homemade treats were presented Monday to state senators and representatives, as well as the governor, lieutenant governor and secretary of state.

“It is always interesting to me how much the legislators look forward to this every year,” Lott said. “They all know Effingham County.”
