Last Year’s Build-A-Scarecrow Day at Yardley-Wood Rink – Oct 18th, 2014

On Saturday, October 18th, we had a perfect day for building scarecrows at the Yardley-Wood Rink with the sun peeking in-and-out from behind the fluffy cumulus clouds.  Many families stopped by throughout the day to build some very colorful, scary and unique scarecrows.  All the scarecrows were mounted on posts scatter about the rink perimeter along Depot Street and the edge of the Center Street School lot fences.  Many Lions came out to help throughout the day, helping organize the event, working with the children and families, and making sure all the had a great time.

We had plenty of hay, corn stalks, twine, and scarecrow clothes to support the many artistic ideas from the all the children.  Several of the families brought in their own clothes and creations to make some truly unique scarecrows.  Their creative energies made the scarecrows come to life. 

At 3:00, five members from the Easton Garden Club arrived to take on the ambitious task of judging all the scarecrows made during the day.  The club made 9 awards in 8 different categories; the Best Crime Fighter had 2 because “they were just so darned cute standing next to each other on the fence posts!”  The nine scarecrow winners are listed below and are also include in the slide show showing all the pictures from the day’s event.
