Alexis Liras, Jane Plummer, Eleni Liras, Briley Burford and Sophie Heinzle dance among the dollars at the Taste of Greece meal on Sunday afternoon, February 21, while Nora Heinzle (standing behind) debates whether or not she’ll join in. Celebrating the Bayard church’s name day, Assumption of the Virgin Mary, about 400 participants stayed to eat the traditional Greek fare of roast lamb, beef, potatoes, feta, spanakopita, and walnut cake, while 150 takeout meals were served from the Prairie Winds Community Center.

Assumption Church is in its 95th year of the celebration and they invite everyone to attend the 95th annual Greek Festival on Saturday, August 7, 2021.
