In 2020 the Milford Lions and Rotary Clubs wanted to be do something FUN for our community to help boost morale and community spirit. Our clubs created a “new” community service project – Scarecrows Around Milford. This was a spin on the usual

scarecrow making activity at the Community House Lawn during Pumpkin Festival.

Well, we are bringing it back again for 2021! In addition to the traditional Pumpkin Festival Scarecrow Making activity, we are once again organizing the Scarecrows Around Milford decorating contest!

1. The Milford Rotary and Lions Clubs will create 150 scarecrow kits including the faces, clothes, internal posts, fasteners, patches and instructions.

2. Kits will be available for $10 each to Milford residents, families and local businesses via drive-through pick-up sessions on September 25 & 26th 10AM to 2PM at Bales School 5 Elm Street. Reservations recommended and first come, first served. Families/households and businesses can purchase more than one kit. Scarecrow Making will be available at the Pumpkin Festival as usual but the price at the festival will be $15 for each kit and is not part of the contest.

3. We hope that many of you will join in again to tell “a story” with the scarecrows or craft a creative display to decorate our Hometown!

4. For the contest, everyone should have their scarecrows displayed by Monday 10/4/21 so that location maps can be shared and judging can happen between Monday 10/4 and Saturday 10/9. Prizes will be awarded and we hope to get some Facebook Live and other media coverage.

This is a great way to show your community support!
