Zucchini Pie Quiche

I have quite a collection of recipes from members of the Junior Womens Club that I belonged to years ago. Our only method of sharing recipes at the time was for someone to type them up, make "Xerox" copies of them in sets and set aside at each table. My recipe copies are extremely time warn now after so much use, so posting them and sharing with my readers on Frugal New England Kitchen is a wonderful way for me to remember my former club members!
