A couple of weeks ago, I met a retired firefighter while out on the Piscataquog River trail. We walked together for about an hour, chatting about life in New Hampshire and my Carla Gericke for NH State Senate race. He spoiled Nellie with treats. He seemed to like my general joie de vire and invited me to join him today to help make pierogies at the Holy Trinity Polish Catholic Cathedral on Pearl Street–what a beautiful church, masterfully renovated!
Pictured is my first ever pierogi. The folks I met were oh-so patient and kind with my clumsy attempts! Clearly, there’s room for improvement, but the kitchen said most of them held when cooked, so there’s that. (And, I remembered my apron!)
Thank you to Stan for the invitation, to Rick for the tour of the cathedral, and to all the folks I met who spent their Wednesday morning selflessly making hundreds of pierogies for their community, including a spry 94 year old lady whose pierogies were, as far as I could tell, perfect (as practice does).
If YOU would like me to come meet with and chat to your community in District 20 (Goffstown & Manchester Wards 3, 4, 10 and 11), please email carla (at) carla4nhsenate (dot) com. I’d love to come and meet you!
