Unique Fundraising Opportunity

Edgar Poe Symmes, III, author of several inspirational books, is pleased to present, a unique fundraising opportunity for students/schools/booster/clubs/individuals/ organizations/church groups, etc. Through the sale of the “Sports Scholarships: The Information Book” and “Mom’s Old Cooking Book”, published by Edgar Poe Symmes, III; fundraisers can earn up to $5.00 per sale of each book sold. In addition Symmes offers college Scholarships and/or bonuses which he gives back through the fundraising programs each year. “Sports Scholarships: The Information Book” The book, “Sports Scholarships: The Information Book”, is written and published by Edgar Poe Symmes, III, psychologist and author of several religious and inspirational books. He has served as a consultant on several municipal, state and national sports committees as well as a National Director for USSA Sports. He has developed, organized and managed large multiple sports complexes/facilities in the southeast United States and has served as a college scout. He also spent many years coaching and supporting youth, high school and college athletics working to assist disadvantaged prospective student athletes to successfully obtain college athletic scholarships. Symmes began learning the college recruiting process when his son and daughter were being recruited by a variety of colleges and universities for their respective sports, and quickly became frustrated by the lack of available information for parents and prospective student athletes concerning obtaining sports scholarships. Through the learning curve, he found quickly that student athletes must initiate the recruiting process themselves to ensure against being overlooked. Symmes states that “a parent must realize early that they must devise a game plan geared at marketing their student athlete and their talents to various colleges, universities and athletic programs”. “Sports Scholarships: The Information Book” is a collection of important and essential information, samples and ideas which assist parents, guardians, and prospective student athletes to be successful. Symmes says that too many talented student athletes are passed over because they sit back and wait to be noticed. Symmes states by using the information in this book, you will help create an opportunity for potential student athletes. “Take the initiative early and activate your goals!”


“Mom’s Old Cooking Book” Coming in fall of 2008 The book, “Mom’s Old Cooking Book”, is written and published by Edgar Poe Symmes, III, and brings a unique mixture of Old South, Hawaiian and Japanese recipes into a favorite cook book special. The recipes come from Mom’s favorite recipes which she brought to the Old South many years ago and as a result placed a smile on many that she has served over the years. “Good things happen to Good people!”, sounds like an excellent paraphrasing of an old adage, and it certainly applies to the “Mom’s Old Cooking Book”. Careful attention has been given to the selection of the recipes with much emphasis on the variety and the simplicity of the choices. Mom spent many hours testing and retesting the recipes found in this unique collection and whether they succeed or not will be left to the user of the cook book to decide. In the old days, both the Old Southern and Ancient Japanese expressed their gratitude for the food they were about to partake by uttering words to the effect that they accept the food gratefully without complaining about the volume or the taste. Although many miles separate the recipes, it was amazing to see and hear the response from each culture and to see how similar all people truly are when it come to good eating. Today we are extremely fortunate that Mom who is not only an expert in the culinary arts but also a housekeeper has compiled recipes for dishes that are both tasty and inexpensive. I think you will find many praises in your preparations. “Mom’s Old Cooking Book” is an excellent fundraising opportunity. It is both easy to read and simple in the preparation of extremely good dishes. Symmes states by using this unique cook book as a fundraiser, you will create a positive and fascinating potential for new cooks and mom’s everywhere.
