11th Annual Scarecrow Festival

Thanks to everyone who attended SOHS Hanley Farm’s Annual Scarecrow Festival. Thanks to each of you, it was a super success! About the festival, one volunteer shared several happy moments, including: A child seeing the witch scarecrow that people were looking for and screaming, ‘There she is!’; the toddler crooning to the bunnies in the bunny cage; babies sitting on the tables to ‘help’ stuff the scarecrows; and the couple with two small children in car seats and two scarecrows trying to fit all into a small SUV, which they did!
