Shamrock Park in Tyrone on Sept. 30 was the setting for the kick-off of the annual week-long Founders Day celebration. Along with a wide variety of family-oriented events came hot dog-eating contests and, for the brave at heart and for those not concerned with getting a bit messy, a very enjoyable pie-eating contest. There were also chalk painting events as well. Tyrone resident Melissa Lohr and her 10-year-old daughter, Maddy, created chalk art for onlookers. Photos/Ben Nelms.
