Make Your Own Varenyky Night

Make Your Own Varenyky Night

We made over 250 varenyky!!

Make Your Own Varenyky Night took place on July 7th in Waterloo and gathered a number of university students and families from around the area. The evening consisted of varenyky making, varenyky eating and even a little game in the end. The purpose of the game was to have volunteers tell the difference between varenyky made by the Waterloo Women’s League, varenyky made by the attendees of the event, and store-bought varenyky. A good laugh or two came out of that one.

KUWAS members were also present to talk to the guests about Ukraine, its culture, history and current situation. Once the guests were ready to go home, each received a package of the varenyky they all made that evening.

Overall, it was a nice way to relax and catch up with friends (or make new ones) before diving into summer finals.

A special thank you goes out to the Waterloo Ukrainian Catholic Church of the Transfiguration And Waterloo Women’s League for helping us, teaching us and letting us use their space.
