Sisterhood Learns a Lost Art: Pierogi!

October 28, 2012

The Sisterhood of Saints Martha and Mary, filled with happy spirits and willing hearts, had a fun day working together for the Pierogi fund raiser. Sandy Bakofen, Andrea Filak, Kathy Skirkanich, Nina Maisevich, Mary Tomaras, Madelyn Andruk, Diana Calpakis and Sonia Rusinak kept the pace.

Sandy was our “leader” … organizing and using her family recipe to keep us on track. Through tears, we chopped 20lbs of onions, kneaded dough to the “right firmness” and mashed 15 pounds of potatoes. Then we formed and boiled the pierogi… “perfection”!

Besides gathering for Christian fellowship, our purpose was to make money to help the church whose finances need support. Photos of the day can be seen here.

Today, in the social room, a bakers’ dozen will sell for $10.00. See Diane Calpakis and her helpers to purchase your treat. Each tray has been cooked, topped with onions and is ready to be heated and eaten. You can also freeze a tray, should you want it for another day. You will not be disappointed. Thank you for your support.

Update: We sold out!

Thank you to Madelyn for the story and Madelyn & Sandy for the photos.
