Scarecrow contest returns this fall

The North Haven Garden Club wants residents and local businesses to start thinking about ideas for the club’s Annual Scarecrow Contest. Contest details are coming soon.

Perhaps this poem by garden club member Maria Yankura will get you in the mood to create something special:

Gathered on the town green, the scarecrows will come

To scare away the crows and to have some fun.

Some will be hard at work, tending to the garden

Others will be waving to passersby in the chilly autumn breezes,

Then there's those that come just to bask in the sun.

How will your scarecrow join the fray?

Standing tall or hanging around?

Blowing in the breeze?

Sitting or relaxing on a bale of hay?
