Whew! We sure had some bad rainy weather to hit Pendleton so were a day late starting the Scarecrow Contest Online Voting. It was just too rainy to take the photos and many had not been able to put theirs out due to the bad weather. We ended up with some deciding not to try for the contest but we hope they will go ahead and put theirs out soon before the festival this Saturday. It looks like it will be a beautiful weekend for the Festival so come join the fun in Pendleton.
Oh, please don't forget to vote for your favorite scarecrow in 4 categories:
We have over 50 entries and they are so creative and clever. You can sure tell that a lot of work and thought have gone into these.
Once again, here is the link to vote:
Here is a look at two that were not in the contest but they sure are worth looking at. Jacque Grossman of Mountain Made and Jo McConnell, coordinator for the contest, worked together on these two great scarecrows. If you are familiar with Pendleton, you might recognize these two gentleman. Charlie Moore was the owner of Blue Ridge Antiques and he is certainly missed around town since his store burned. The next one is in memory of Greg Ammons who owned Ammons Portrait Studio and passed away suddenly. Thank you, Jacque and Jo for remembering these two great Pendletonians.
