Hungarian Harvest Dance, 2011


On Saturday, October 1, 2011, our annual Hungarian Harvest Dance was held at the American Legion Hall on Hwy 43 near Springfield, La. A large crowd attended and had a wonderful time. The program began with an introduction by the AHSCA president, Wayne Kreko. Suzie Green led the National Anthem and Gyula Szita led the Hungarian National Anthem. Ernest Breaux did the invocation. All of this was followed by Hungarian singing led by Victoria Mocsary along with her neices Suzie Green and Christina Mocsary and, her great neice and nephew Jake and Megan Green. All of the singers are descendants of Adam Mocsary, one of the original founders of the community. The highlight of the evening was the traditional Harvest Dance performed by young members of the community who took an interest in passing down this remarkable community tradition. The dance group instructor was Nichole King McMorris. After the Harvest Dance, there was a wine auction held by Pete Pffifner, a life-long resident of the community, who  donated a gallon of his homemade strawberry wine. After the Harvest Dance, the Poo-Yai band, led by Ernest Breaux, performed for public dancing. Hungarian Cabbage rolls, cabbage noodles and Hungarian sausage poboys were sold. Kathleen Green of the Olde World Bakery had homemade Hungarian pastries and other goodies for sale.
