Big Event in Forrest this Weekend

Each year the Prairie Central FFA Alumni Association sponsors the Farm and Home Show at the Prairie Central Upper Elementary Gym in Forrest.  This year the show is on Saturday, February 25th, starting from 10am to 4pm.

This year’s show is the 37th Annual Show!  That is a lot of years to hold a big event like this.  Thanks to the FFA Alumni for all their hard work.

Many, many area businesses and organizations are exhibitors.  This is a great way for the public to learn more about the area and talk to business owners and community leaders.

This year the FFA will be serving pork burgers and pork chop sandwiches continuously from 11am to 2pm.  Cheesy potatoes, green beans and dessert with ice cream are included with meal.  Proceeds benefit the Prairie Central FFA.

“This is a big event for our area each year,” says Bobbi McKeon, owner of Heart’s Desire and coordinator of the Specialty Shops Group.  “Local businesses appreciate the effort the Prairie Central FFA and the school staff put toward this.  Go out and support this event.  Not only does it help the FFA, but bringing people to our area helps all of us from an economic standpoint,” Bobbi concludes.

As always, please stop by Heart’s Desire, call Bobbi McKeon at (815) 692-4500 or email fairbury@fairburyILattractions.com with any stories, ideas or suggestions for interesting topics to write for our community.
