Community support for Granby Scare Crow Contest greatly appreciated

To the Editor:

The Scarecrow Contest results are in.

The winner of the Most Humorous is Grand Fire Protection District for their terrific building climber.

The winner of the Best Traditional Scarecrow is the Sky-Hi Daily News Sales Department for the entry “Most Likely to Scare a Crow.”

The People’s Choice Award is a tie vote for this year with both Grand Mountain Bank and Grand County EMS winning for their clever entries. Congratulations all.

What an amazing contest this year. We had 26 participants and almost 300 ballots cast. Thank you to all who participated by creating entries or voting.

Finally, special thanks to Jill Miles of Grand River Coffee for volunteering to coordinate this entire contest for the second year. And also to Pat Vigil of the Granby Chamber for distributing applications and ballots. We could not have done it without terrific volunteers like Jill or Pat.

Now ” you have time to start planning your scarecrow for Oktoberfest 2009.
