WW: Scarecrows on the Square!

Our town is great!  There's so much about Summerville to like and here's just one example. 

Each fall, the square in the middle of Summerville's historic district features "Scarecrows on the Square."  Schools, businesses, doctors, lawyers, veterinarians, banks, officials, charitable organizations and clubs create scarecrows with a message. 

The scarecrows are displayed for about two weeks or so.  Families, groups and individuals stroll around looking at the various displays.  I'm sharing a few of the scarecrows today, including a scarecrow golfer and a scarecrow veterinarian.  More will be posted on Saturday during the weekly Photo Hunt.  Visit daily but definitely c'mon back Saturday!

Click photos to enlarge if necessary.











I think they're all examples of creativity and imagination.  My very favorite will be included in Saturday's post because it fits with the Photo Hunt theme this week.

Creativity abounds! It's fun to see community involvement... I love annual town festivals and celebrations! We live in a small town bumped up right beside Savannah (Richmond Hill) and we just had our annual Seafood Festival.

Blessings & Aloha!

Um...I spotted the ortho's scarecrow immediately :o) as a hygienist now, maybe that dental connection called out to me :o) Actually, I saw the white stick and maybe that was the stick holding his pumpkin head up...but to me I thought it was supposed to be an "exaggerated" tooth that needed attending.

So fun! We have a shopping area not too far from here that has a scarecrow contest every year and then they are on display throughout the grounds for a few weeks. It is so fun to see the interpretations on the themes!

Happy WW!
