Friday and Saturday saw the DHS Food and Nutrition room transformed into a perogie making factory as the DHS Ambassadors took part in their yearly fundraising effort.
Over 2600 dozen perogies were produced (that’s over 31000 individual perogies) in a weekend that saw ambassadors, parent volunteers and friends pitching in to raise funds for this year’s trip.
World Travellers Staff Advisor Mme. Lovenuk, who has been co-ordinating perogie fundraisers since 1987, was very happy with the results, saying that “Considering that many participants have never seen a perogy being made before, the project was a complete success. The dough was soft, the filling was tasty and the pinching was of good quality. Everyone was meticulous in their food handling practices. Hair bonnets and rubber gloves were the style of the day! Friday evening’s production broke our previous record. In 4 hours we made more than 900 dozen…exceptional!” » Read more
