Want to make a scarecrow on the public square? A Squarecrow?
The upcoming "Squarecrow" contest by the Adair Heritage Association will provide fun and creative outlets for October. To register your own Squarecrow for downtown and have the possibility of winning a cash prize, just stop by the library.
by Linda Waggener Lifetime member Adair Heritage Association
Even though temperatures this week are in the 90s, fall's lower temps, lower humidity, and all types of fall festivals and celebrations are very near. As an added attraction leading up to Columbia's annual October Downtown Days and Treats on the Town, this year everyone is invited to create a scarecrow on the courthouse square and enter the "Squarecrow" contest.
Squarecrows will be displayed Monday, October 5, 2015. First, second and third prizes will be awarded by the sponsoring Adair Heritage Association.
To register your Squarecrow, pick up a form at the Adair County Public Library, 307 Greensburg Street, Columbia, KY. Any person, family, school, business or organization may enter. Prize money will be given by the AHA to make Adair County's contest even more serious in the amounts of $100, $75 and $25 for the first, second and third place winners.
Discussed at the August meeting of the Adair Heritage Association, the idea of Squarecrows had come to Columbia from travelers Barry and Mary Ann Loy.
How many "Squarecrows" will we see this October?
One other note from the August meeting, anyone who shops at Kroger may register their desire to have the charitable community gift amount the corporation donates to be awarded to the Adair Heritage Association to help with future projects like this one and the many other projects the AHA does to protect and preserve.
