Scarecrows go to the Movies in 2014

 Meaford Scarecrow Invasion and Family Festival is celebrating the cinema this year. We expect to see creative movie scarecrows invading in September. A  visual phenomenon called persistence of vision -   a series of individual still pictures set into motion creating the illusion of movement – was first described by British physician Peter Mark Roget in 1824. This description was the first step in the development of cinema (Tim Dirks. AMC Film Site).

     A workhorse is defined as “a person who works tirelessly, especially at difficult or time-consuming tasks” or “something that is markedly useful, durable, or dependable.” This definitions are a fairly comprehensive description of Richard Morris. Leadership and humility need to be added to be thoroughly comprehensive. Richard has volunteered for the Meaford Scarecrow Invasion
