Friends Program and Free Scarecrows
When you donate $100 or more to the Friends Program, you can select a scarecrow to display absolutely FREE.
Becoming a friend of the scarecrows you will get to choose your scarecrow the ﬁrst of September. Once you select your scarecrow, you do not have to do anything more. Scarecrow will be delivered, set up, and attended to all month, and it will be taken down after the festival.
Your scarecrow can be placed in front of your business or, if you’re not a business owner, placement will be determined by the set-up committee.
Your level of giving determines the tier of scarecrows from which you choose.
We’re setting it up in a shopping cart format on our website. The selections will be first-come first-served. If you need help selecting your scarecrow, we are more than happy to help you.
We expect the scarecrows to be available for selection by September 1, 2023. We will send you a reminder when the scarecrows are ready to be selected.
