Merrimack VFW participates in Scarecrow Project

MERRIMACK – Supporters from the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 8641, 282 Daniel Webster Highway, participated in the Scarecrow Project, a fundraiser for the Merrimack Lions Club in partnership with the American Diabetes Association.

Five scarecrows on display curbside at the post represent the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard. These scarecrows, supplied without adornments and with blank fabric faces, were decorated by VFW members, members of the post’s Ladies Auxiliary and members of the post’s Men’s Auxiliary.

The themed scarecrows at the post and some 200 more elsewhere in Merrimack decorated as firefighters, gardeners, police officers, Girl Scouts and more, reflect a contribution of $20 for each scarecrow purchased for the effort.
