In the Coal Region, we love our pierogi. We are willing to stand in long lines at block parties and church picnics just to get our hands on these doughy pillows of stuffed goodness. And, without a doubt, some of the best are the ones made by hand by dozens of volunteers – aka “church ladies” (and gents). A social event in itself, the creation of pierogi carries on, but those who have made them for decades know there needs to be interest from the younger members of parishes and organizations to keep the traditions alive.
Summertime is church picnic and bazaar time in our area, and that means teams of volunteers are hard at work making ethnic treats. Jon Meyer, WNEP, found all the hard work is a mission of love in this stop On The Pennsylvania Road.
