All of the top three winners will receive free passes to Coleman's Corn Maze
Scarecrows could be entered as an individual or by a group, organization or business.
We would like to thank all responsible for the 9 entries that have made downtown Saline so festive this fall.
We would also like to thank everyone that voted for their favorite scarecrow.
And we certainly want to acknowledge all of the sponsors who made entering and voting a rewarding experience. Everyone that entered the contest as well as voted in the contest received a special treat from one or more of our generous sponsors. Dairy Queen donated free ice cream cones. Benny's Bakery donated your choice of a cookie, or a donut. And Busch's donated a free candy bar and rotissery chicken from their deli. Yum!
All prizes will be mailed out this week - so watch your mailboxes and then enjoy! Thanks for taking part this year - tell your friends to join in next year.
See you all next year! - Dr. Rob Borer, Borer Family Chiropractic
