All members who attended the meeting were asked to cast their vote for first place and second place in two categories: “The best for a Business Submission” and “The best for a Family Submission.” All contest participants were asked to send their submission to the email address provided on the instruction sheet when purchasing a scarecrow kit.

All winners will be contacted by the Merrimack Lions Club to receive their certificates.

We want to thank everyone who purchased a scarecrow this year. With your help, we raised more than $1,800 to help fight diabetes. In addition, we want to give a special thanks to the Merrimack Public Library staff for setting up a table for us. Their location has proved to be an excellent place to promote our fundraiser.
