a full day in f.c. Forest City will show off its small-town charm

by Christopher Cornell

ADVAntAGe eDitor

The normally quiet streets of Forest City will bustle with action and activity on Saturday, Aug. 4, as the Forest City Trail Town Festival and 250th anniversary of anthracite celebration takes over the town. This event is the result of a joint effort of the Greater Forest City Business Alliance, the Forest City Regional School District, the Forest City Area Historical Society and the Rail-Trail Council. “So many have contributed to the evolution of this event,” said Lynn Conrad, chairperson of festival. “We also have the support of the borough and Emergency Services.” Events are scheduled all day and in several locations, including downtown Forest City and the nearby Rail Trail area. Rail Trail events begin at 8 a.m. with the annual Coal Cracker races, run by the Forest City Regional High School cross country team. There’s a two-mile race and quarter marathon to choose from. Pre-applications are available at A dedication of two historical signs on the trail will take place at 9:30 a.m., followed by bike rides beginning at 10 a.m. Town events include Main Street vendors in the 400 and 500 blocks of Main Street. There will be crafts, food, music and entertainment and an all-day scav-


enger hunt. There will also be a Touch-ATruck installation. The Historical Society Museum will open at 9 a.m. and ethnic foods will be for sale in the basement. There will also be the unveiling of two more historical markers and a life-size wooden sculpture of a coal miner. The annual Distinguished Citizen presentation will be at noon. At 1:30 Scott Herring, national chairman of the 250th anniversary of anthracite will speak. At 2:30, Rail Trail executive director Lynn Conrad will talk on the impact of railroads on Forest City’s history. At 11 a.m., there will be the grand opening of the new dog park at Babe Ruth Field, off North Main Street. Refreshments will be available. At 3:30 Forest City historian Mark Walsh will speak at the Rotary Miners’ Memorial at William Penn Park to discuss the sacrifices of miners in Forest City history. Christ Church will have a takeout-only chicken barbecue from 3 to 6 p.m. At 5 p.m., a locally-written and produced mining-era play with local cast members will be staged at the Museum. The play will be followed by a march of ethnic costumes into the Museum, set to polka music. The day’s finale will be a Forest City tradition: the light parade with floats, marching units and vehicles beginning at 9 p.m. at the Industrial Park and ending at DG’s Bar on North Main St. After the parade, a fireworks display will cap the evening. The following day there will be a fishing derby for kids from 8 a.m. to noon at Kennedy Park.

If some of this sounds like Forest City’s Old Home Week festival from previous years, that’s not a coincidence, Conrad said. The best of that event has been mixed in with new offerings. “The event is definitely a descendant of Old Home Week,” she said, noting that with the improvements that have been made to the rail trail, “we thought it would be a perfect marriage.”

Conrad said the trail has been closed for more than a year due to a pipeline project. “So this will be the public’s first time on the newly restored trail from Forest City to Simpson. It may not be completely finished, but will be very usable and enjoyable.” “We hope that people will come out to use the D&H Rail-Trail and experience what Forest City has to offer as a small town,” she added.

Specific Chiropractic adjustments can keep your body properly aligned and reduce your pain, naturally. Yes, Chiropractors are “real Doctors” with a very unique purpose! Just like Podiatrists are Doctors that manage foot disorders and Cardiologist are doctors that treat heart conditions, Chiropractors are Doctors that focus on correcting spinal abnormalities as they relate to your overall health and mobility. More and more people are turning to Chiropractic care! A recent 4-years study involving over 1.7 million people found that for those patients who used Chiropractic, their total health care costs were reduced for all conditions studied...including back pain, neck pain and headaches. Yes, Chiropractic care can do what drugs or surgery can not.

The Greater Carbondale YMCA recently held its Pioneer Heroes Awards program at the Hotel Anthracite. More than 260 guests gathered to honor four super supporters of the organization. The guests of honor were: • John Cosgrove, who won the Volunteer Award. “Cosgrove’s enthusiasm for the 21st Century Capital Campaign was obvious through his commitment of time and talent,” officials said. “He continually went above and beyond his professional responsibilities to ensure the success of the campaign. In his many roles throughout the community, John still continues to be one of the Greater Carbondale YMCA’s biggest advocates. • Susan Mancuso, who won a Lifetime Award. Mancuso grew up in a family where volunteering at the YMCA was a part of life. Susan served as Board of Directors president and then took the role of president of the board of trustees. “As the Capital Campaign chair, she poured her heart into her work. Susan’s genuine humility prohibits her from seeing how invaluable she is, and will always be, to the Greater Carbondale YMCA and our community,” officials said.

• Dan Totsky, who also won a Lifetime Award. Totsky has volunteered “millions” of hours at the YMCA, officials said. From board president to trustee, youth sports coach to MVP in the men’s basketball league, “Danny’s done it all, and the Y couldn’t have done it without him. His boisterous personality is not to be outdone by his extreme generosity. Danny was president of the Board of Directors during the Capital Campaign and shared the staff’s passion on how to best meet the needs of our community.” • Monsignor Joseph Quinn won a Volunteer Award. Quinn arrived in Carbondale at St. Rose Parish in 2005 and was immediately invited to be a part of the 21st Century Capital Campaign. “Once he learned about the project, he was hooked,” officials said. “As honorary chairman of the campaign, Quinn knew just how far to push and when to encourage – taking the grand total to more than $10 million raised. Proceeds from the event support the Greater Carbondale YMCA Endowment Fund; created to provide for the future of the YMCA. For more information, call 570282-2210.
