Scarecrow Making

It's that time of year! The leaves are changing color, the temperature is cooling down. What says Autumn more than making a scarecrow with a background of beautiful fall colors? All supplies are included, stakes, clothes, accessories, heads and stuffing. All ages are welcome!

Admission is FREE. $5 per scarecrow.

It's time to earn cash and free up some extra room just in time for the upcoming holiday season. This is the perfect opportunity for children 12 and under to sell toys, clothes, sporting goods, books, electronics - anything is fair game as long as it is designed for kids, and in good taste. While we realize that young children may need adult help with their sales, we expect the kids to do as much as they can. Preschoolers must have a parent with them. Each space will include one 8 ft. table. You may bring an extra one if needed. Don't think you have enough for a full table? Grab a friend and share one! Set-up time is from 11:30am-12:45pm. This event takes place at the Multi-Purpose Center Gym.
