  •  Organizers of Forest City’s annual Old Home Week Pierogi Eating Contest have announced that proceeds from this year’s event will be directed to the Forest City Salvation Army Service Extension Unit. The Service Unit serves the greater Forest City area in providing food vouchers, an emergency food bank, back to school supplies and school uniforms, and an Angel Tree program during the holidays.
    The Pierogi Eating Contest, which has drawn contestants and spectators from across the nation since its 2007 inception, will take place on Saturday, August 1st at 3:00 p.m. on the 500 block of Main Street, Forest City.
    Proceeds from the contest will specifically be allocated to support the Salvation Army’s efforts to provide back to school supplies for local children in need. Additionally, contest organizers are asking those planning to attend the contest to bring non-perishable canned goods. The fan who brings the most canned goods will receive a free 2009 Forest City Old Home Week Pierogi Eating Contest t-shirt.
