Scarecrows of Hopewell

Hopewell Township and WESBANCO are teaming up to host a scarecrow making contest!
Pre-register for a fun day creating you own scarecrow with family and friends on Saturday, October 8th, 11:00 am at Hopewell Community Park, Pavilion #3 (behind the Nature Center). We are looking for individuals, families, friends, classes, clubs, teams, scouts…….anyone that wants to join in the fun!
Straw, wooden frames, burlap sacks, and rope/twine will be provided. Teams will be asked to provide clothes for their scarecrow and any other accessories they may want to use.
Teams must pre-register by September 30th so supplies can be ordered.
The scarecrows will be placed throughout the Township. Specifically at the entrance of Township Buildings, the Park, Welcome to Hopewell signs, Business Entrances and so forth.
Once completed, photographs will be taken, then the scarecrows will be put on Facebook for votes.

Participants will be asked to retrieve their scarecrows just prior to Halloween so they can decorate their homes for trick or treat (date TBD).
