Nearly forgot to tell you to put the Downtown Delavan annual Scarecrow Fest on your calendars! It is such a fun, family oriented day. This year it will be on Sat., Sept. 19th and begins about 9-10 in the morning and goes into the afternoon. There will be scarecrows on the streets to see and photograph ( once again , Memories will offer a $10 gift cert. to our shop for each scarecrow entered in the contest........let me know you are doing this)............there will be fun things for the kids....pumpkin decorating contest, scarecrow decorating contest, food, music, crafts in the park, a DUCK RACE with first prize of $200 and about 20 prizes to Delavan busineses altogether, the list goes on.
WE need to have contributions of OLD clothes for the scarecrow decorating contest! Old jeans or long pants ( the rattier, the better), old long sleeved shirts, pantyhose with runs.........etc. These are truly needed......the type of clothing you would not take to re-sale or give away shops, so we have enough to dress the scarecrows. This is different from the ones you will bring to put in the contest out on the street.........these are just for the kids to decorate across the st. from our shop and take home with them. Thanks for your help!
FYI, we are going to do another Scrapbooking rummage sale this fall, so begin getting your things packed up that you want to get cleaned out. There has been a lot of interest in doing another one this fall, instead of waiting for winter....so we said OK! We aim to please! More about it later, but wanted to give you a head's up. Remember, you do not have to be there......we take care of the sales when you bring it in, marked with your initials and price.
