It has started to rain (10:45) so we are canceling Scarecrow Day.
Because of the possible rain - we will call those who have registered IF the day is canceled. Please call on Sunday BEFORE you come – if you are not registered. Space is limited this year because of our building restoration project.
On Sunday, October 7, 2012, at 2:00 PM, the Meadowlands Museum will sponsor its annual Family Scarecrow Day. Participants sign up to make a life-size scarecrow for the Museum grounds. This is a great activity for families, scout troops or groups of friends. Get together with your “group” (up to six people) and decide what type of scarecrow you want to make. The Museum supplies the scarecrow frames and a head made of muslin. There will be old clothes and accessories for participants to use, but you may also bring items of your own. There will be straw to use for stuffing to give the scarecrows some “body”. All scarecrows will stay on the Museum front lawn through rain and sunshine, adding to the autumn atmosphere of the Museum grounds.
If you have never participated before, why not make this the year to come. We serve donuts and cider and have a wonderful afternoon. This activity is for all ages, but mostly for the young at heart. Scarecrow making begins right at 2:00 PM and registration is required. There is a ten-dollar per group registration fee to help defray costs. If registering on the day of the event, please call to check for availability of space.
Community members are encouraged to drive by the Museum throughout October to see our scarecrow maker’s work.
