Despite winter’s sometimes gloomy skies, there was a warm and inviting spot in town Saturday evening than Calvin United Church where a sunny crowd enjoyed the congregation’s annual dinner of traditional Hungarian gulyas.

The event also featured Hungarian folk art for sale, a tourism video, music, pastries and, of course, gulyas —a hearty stew with beef or pork, carrots and other vegetables that warms the insides on the coldest of days.

Young and old enjoyed the festivities at the Kings Highway church, helping to ensure that Hungarian traditions and culture would remain part of the Fairfield community for years to come.
