MONTICELLO, NY (November 13, 2012) – On Saturday, October 20, a dozen darling to devilish scarecrows adorned the front lawn of the E.B. Crawford Public Library in Monticello, NY during the first of what appears will be an annual event,
Sponsored by the Friends of the Ethelbert B. Crawford Public Library, Inc. was the first-ever Scarecrow Making Contest.
Families came with armloads of items to create some spooky, some friendly and some funny scarecrows.
The scarecrow created by Kathleen Knepper and her granddaughters Kayla and Gabriella took “Best in Show” (in photo).
The judges were hard-pressed to select just one and every scarecrow-making team received a beautiful Fall Fun Participation ribbon.
With face painting, crafts, refreshments, fall stories and a book sale, the day offered something for everyone.
