Henry County’s Cooking
with The Divas of McDonough


This week we are cooking with The Divas of McDonough. The Divas met several years ago through programs offered by the Heritage Senior Center, and they now meet for cards, food and various outings.

L to r: Aurora Eross, Doris English, Hazel Jinks, Mary Cohen, Margie Loftin, and Geleta Fenton are the Divas of McDonough.

  Years ago, they decided to forgo the usual exchange of birthday and holiday gifts, and pool the amount normally spent on these gifts into a fund which could be contributed to a charity to be selected at the end of each year. Thus far, they have raised funds and contributed to Connecting Henry, Noah’s Ark, Henry County Cancer Services, and have decorated pumpkins for distribution to a local personal care facility.

 The Divas of McDonough served as ambassadors for the merchants on the Square celebrating the first Ladies Night Out, and they continue to look for ways to remain actively involved in their local community.

  The membership of the Divas of McDonough consists of: Aurora Eross, Doris English, Geleta Fenton, Hazel Jinks, Margie Loftin and the founding Diva, Mary Cohen.

  Below are some of the recipes the Divas use when they get together. We hope you enjoy.
