Harold Proppe, one of the crew of the potato peelers helped wash up potatoes for the Sunday peeling marathon. All the potatoes are cooked in the large vat behind Rev. Kevin. Three batches were cooked. That’s a lot of potatoes.

For at least 15 years, the St. Andrew’s United Church in Swan River has held a fall supper, and you can’t have supper without perogies!

Helen Lasuik’s sister. Olga Maidy, taught about 20 women how to make perogies. 2 work bees with 14 people, incluing Rev. Kevin, made these treats … and they didn’t break.

Choices, choices how do you choose a dessert! Take a couple.

Thank you to all those who have helped us realize this.

Our congregation appreciated all the support the Swan Valley community gave us, again.
