Scarecrows of Leominster display to benefit two funds

Submitted to The Champion

A citywide display of scarecrows is being organized. This fundraiser will benefit the Clean Water Fund and the Mayor’s Heating Fund.

Simply create and display a scarecrow at your home or business by Oct. 11 and contact Scarecrows of Leominster to register and pay.

“We hope that this will be a fun event that showcases the creativity of Leominster,” organizer Debbie Sayles said. “To date we already have pledges from several businesses to display scarecrows. Charlie Brown, Minion and workout-attired scarecrows are readying for the contest.”

All entries will be posted on the Scarecrows of Facebook page, and the general public is invited to vote for their favorite scarecrow between Oct. 11 and Oct. 31.

The cost per individual is $5 for a single or a pair of scarecrows, to benefit the Mayor’s Energy Fund. The cost for a business is $10 for a single or pair, to benefit the Clear Water Fund.
