Thank you to all of our wonderful scarecrow creators! We had a wonderful response to this fun way to celebrate fall and it has been a blast driving around the island and seeing the creativity and spirit. We already have lots of great ideas on how to improve for next year and we look forward to this becoming another island tradition!
One change we want to make is judging the scarecrows. Our panel of secret judges had a hard time and we have heard from community members new ideas on how to judge it differently which we will implement next fall. Next year the whole community will be able to judge on-line, at the CRC and at the Halloween parties!
Since our judges had a hard time picking a winner we decided on the following categories ~ we are always open for ideas for new categories for next year too
1.       Tree Reaper ~ created by Mark Bowman; Chip Corson and Justin Doughty
2.      Simon the Slug slayer ~ created by the Runges
3.     The Prescotts
Best Use of Props:
1.       The Belesca's 
2.      Laura Hamilton and Pam pulsifer
3.     Chuck Varney
Best Costume:
1.       Jenny and Sumner ~ the German scarecrow
2.      Gen and Chloe dyer ~ Galinda
3.     Amanda Campbell and Julia Stefanilo ~ HErbie
The judges want me to express that they had a difficult time choosing and that all the scarecrows were wonderful and fun!
All first place winners will receive movie tickets as a prize. Thank you for all your enthusiasm for this new amazing tradition!
