Hartselle Parks & Recreation will host a Scarecrow Trail at Sparkman Park from October 18th through 31st, to raise money for the 2014 United Way fundraising campaign. Local businesses and organizations are encouraged to design and enter a scarecrow in the contest. The theme for this year's trail is "Land of Make-Believe." Scarecrows may portray fictional characters from books, movies, cartoons, folklore, or fairy tales. Entry fee is $20 per scarecrow, and is due by October 15th. All scarecrows should be in good taste.
Funds raised will help the United Way support non-profit agencies throughout Morgan County that touch one out of three residents across all ages and socio-economic levels. From Meals on Wheels to Habitat for Humanity to Hospice of the Valley, these agencies provide vital services in education, income, and health.
