Last chance to buy fundraiser scarecrow kits

Oct. 22 is the last Saturday to buy a scarecrow kit at the Merrimack Public Library.

The kits will be available between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.

Come by the library to buy a new one or dust off your last year’s scarecrow. Everyone enjoys seeing the old and new faces as they appear around town.

This year, many parents or grandparents show up with their co-designer to select a face. It can be a quick decision or one that takes a few minutes. Local businesses also have their staffs make one – often a face of "the "boss."

Regardless of who makes it, everyone leaves with a smile.

Each kit costs $20, and includes a frame, painted face and directions. You can send a picture of your scarecrow to merrimackscarecrows@gmail.com, and the club will award a ribbon to the best family/individual and to the best business scarecrow design.

While supplies last, you also can buy a scarecrow by calling Michele at 424-6103.
