Adopt a Scarecrow

Back by popular demand, "Crow About Cherry Valley", the fabulous display of straw men and women returns for a second round of fall festive fun. The scarecrow adoption fee is $25. Stop by the library to pay your fee, sign a waiver, choose a lamppost location, and pick up your scarecrow frame. Display your scarecrow beginning Friday, September 26th!

Anyone can then vote for their favorite scarecrow at the library and selected downtown locations for a $1 per vote suggested donation. Winning scarecrows will be announced at the end of the village's Halloween Parade on Saturday, October 25.
