1st - 31st
Crowds of people of all ages arrived at Pepi Cafe and Community Garden armed with clothing and decorations to create their Scarecrow masterpieces. Our budding artists had a lot of fun and those children visiting from interstate donated their Scarecrows back to the Community Gardens.
A HUGE Thank You to our Sponsor of this event, Lane Buck & Higgins for connecting our farming community with our townsite by bringing the Scarecrows to town.
To Whiteland Milling and Geo Timber & Hardware for the supply of wood for our Scarecrow frames. The Mens Shed - we can't thank you gentlemen enough for your tireless work in creating frames for both the business community and our workshops. To the wonderful gardeners from the Community Gardens for providing your venue, marquee and the sunflowers that helped create a wonderful atmosphere. To Bernie at Pepi Cafe for coordinating the use of the venue, equipment and keeping the volunteers chocked full of energy with coffee and the personally baked cakes you can indulge in when visiting the cafe.
This has been such a popular event that we ran out of frames but thanks to GEO Timber & Hardware more wood was supplied and The Men's Shed started early on Tuesday to make another 20 frames for the activity.
A shout out to Soils Aint Soils for providing the vehicle that will transport out Scarecrows and their makers down Queen Street in the upcoming Float Parade and lastly but very importantly, the band of volunteers that worked throughout the morning to help make this event run so smoothly.
Thank you to Russell Barton Photography for the images that will help this event live on for years to come.
