It was a big night for the High Prairie Zirka Dancers, from the youngest to the senior performers, with twists and spins to Ukrainian folk music.

The Zirkas entertained guests at the Guy Community Hall Jan. 13. A Ukrainian dinner was held before, requiring the efforts of more than 15 volunteers.

“The community really pulled together, a lot of volunteers came out to help,” says Simone Gagnon, president of the Guy Sports Committee and one of the organizers.

Over 200 people attended the event. The dinner consisted of sausages, cabbage rolls, perogies, cottage cheese pancakes, salads and corn dishes. Dessert consisted of blueberry perogies, fruit-filled buns and fruit salad.

The event was a fundraiser for the Guy Sports Committee, with the proceeds going to building improvements.

At the end of the event, the Guy Sports Committee presented a donation of $1,220 to the Zirkas.

The local band, Rewind, performed later.
