Living scarecrows needed for festival
The annual Mary Valley Scarecrow Festival needs people on the ground to make it happen. Organiser Carol Miller is in desperate need of “living ‘crows” to help the stuffed ones make their comeback in the valley.
Scarecrow season kicks off on September 24 and it is time to get the registration forms out to residents to encourage entries. They can’t do that without a person in each town to handle inquiries. Towns without a local contact will miss out on being included in the judging.
Entry is free and there are three categories – children aged five to 15 years, artistic and traditional – but scarecrows cannot be judged unless they are registered and given a number.
The Scarecrow Festival runs from Sept 24-Oct 30. Check out www.scarecrows.org.au and contact Carol on 5446 0100 if you can help out. The job requires a small amount of time and a little organisation, but mostly it is a lot of fun.
