Now that fall has officially arrived, it’s time for some scarecrow building.
ACE, the Andover Coalition for Education will be hosting its 4th Annual Scarecrow Festival in downtown Andover from Saturday, October 15 to Saturday, October 29.
The public is invited to purchase ‘Make Your Own Scarecrow Kits’, which contain “everything needed to craft your very own scarecrow,” according to a press release. Non-profit and civic organizations can purchase a kit for $50, which includes the wood and hay needed to make a scarecrow. Individuals can purchase a kit for $30.
The fundraising effort supports Andover Public Schools. For more than 10 years, “ACE has provided support for the APS through private funding for curricula-enhancing initiatives at all grade levels through fundraisers such as the Scarecrow Festival and through the generosity of its donors,” according to the press release.
