The Stow Parks and Recreation Department is once again organizing Scarecrows on the Plaza. This seasonal program celebrates autumn with a creative flair allowing individual community members, families and business owners or agencies to build their own unique scarecrow. Teams will be given a scarecrow frame which they then decorate to be whimsical, comical, scary or traditional in design. Registration is $5 and deadline for entries is Oct. 1. Scarecrows must be completed and ready for display by Oc. 14. Completed scarecrows will be on display at Stow City Hall plaza until Nov. 1. Awards will be given within the Community and Corporate divisions. A complete set of rules will be available at registration. For more information on this program contact the Stow Parks and Recreation Department at 330-689-5100.
