FOREST CITY, Iowa – Dozens of people gathered in Forest City Saturday morning to help the Forest City Rotary Club raise money to eradicate polio.
Those in attendance were invited to participate in a cake walk, as well as a pumpkin carving contest.
There were also a variety of foods, vendors, and games for children available.
Liz Smith, past-president of the rotary, told KIMT that it is a day full of fun that goes toward a great cause.
“It’s a part of a multiple group effort for Octoberfest here in Forest City, but we’re just trying to raise awareness and reaise money for the cause” said Smith. “Polio is very close to being eradicated – there’s three countries left.”
This was the first year for the event being held in uptown Forest City.
