Meaford, July 13, 2015——-They call themselves the Sassy Scarecrows, a group of nine spirited community volunteers who once again this year raised money toward the Meaford Hospital Foundation Walk/Run/Stroll on July 11th , a grand total of $3,335.
A team of nine Sassy Scarecrows represented the Scarecrow Invasion and Family Festival Committees during the 18th annual fundraiser to raise money for cancer care projects. Like the hospital fundraiser, the annual Scarecrow Invasion and Family Festival relies on volunteers, community commitment to common goals, and mutual support, and the Sassy Scarecrows have been more than willing to join in and support the hospital’s endeavours.
The Scarecrow Invasion and Family Festival Committees have a tradition of mutual community support, according to Head Scarecrow Marilyn Morris. “The Scarecrow Invasion hosts an annual ‘Community Event Planners’ meeting in the winter to help other organizations both plan and promote their own activities. We invite approximately 60 groups and organizations to the meeting,” she said.
The committees actively promote the invasion, the festival, and other community events at every opportunity, including the Meaford Fall Fair on Labour Day weekend, the Chamber of Commerce Welcome to Meaford tradeshow in September, the Meaford International Film Festival, and the Grey Bruce and the Simcoe Counties brochure swaps in the spring.
