|Dear Area Business,
Again this year, the Akron Chamber of Commerce is hosting a Scarecrow Contest to celebrate Halloween. We are hoping you will all participate and decorate a Scarecrow and display it anywhere along downtown Main Street, hung on a lamp post, a tree cage, or a telephone pole. The Scarecrow can be any design – your choice.
Please get them put together and hung up as soon as possible, but definitely before 10/24/14. You are responsible for your scarecrow (breaks, tears etc.) We also encourage you to please decorate your business’s front window or sign, in a Halloween theme, to decorate the community in the fun Halloween spirit. For those businesses that are not located in downtown, we still hope you will participate. Simply make your Scarecrow, find an empty pole or tree cage and attach it. You will need to put some sort of sign stating what business created the Scarecrow, for judging purposes. The Scarecrows will be judged Halloween weekend and prizes will be awarded! The winner will be notified and put into the local papers. Please notify us by telephone (716)542-4050 or by email Akronchamber@gmail.com so we know how many are participating. Lastly, please be sure to remove your Scarecrow by November 7th. If you are a business or organization located away from Main St., please let us know if you are participating so we can judge your scarecrow!
On Halloween night, Friday 10/31/14, treats will be served to the children at Russell Park Shelter by Chamber volunteers. All are welcome!
