POMFRET — The town’s first Town-Wide, Drive-By Scarecrow Adventure was a huge success, according to First Selectwoman Maureen Nicholson.
Residents, businesses, non-profits, and organizations put up 22 creative, homemade scarecrows throughout town. “The Scarecrow Adventure made a terrific fall foliage drive in the country a fun, creative, low-cost, family friendly activity incorporating social distancing. The variety of scarecrows was fun to see and truly made for an exploration around town. Pomfret School had the walk of scarecrows many residents had wonderful creations and several businesses displayed fun scarecrows with personality. Watercure Distillery had some large spiders on their stone gate for a seasonal interest. There were athletic scarecrows fishing, biking, and dressed for baseball and field hockey. Ruth Bader Ginsberg even made an appearance on Tull Lane,” she said.
More than 80 votes were received. Nicholson said, “Having such a healthy response will ensure that the contest will be offered again next year.  Congratulations to all who participated and made the Scarecrow Adventure such a success.”
The Turbesi family scarecrow on Kearny Road was the high vote getter in the residential category and the Pomfret Public Library was the winner in the business /nonprofit category.  Berkshire Hathaway Realtor Mary Collins was “Best in Show” with a creative look-alike scarecrow on Kearney Fork Road that is sure to set a trend in the future.
The Scarecrow Adventure and Great Pumpkin weigh-in were sponsored by the Pomfret Economic Planning & Development, Recreation and Agriculture commissions, Board of Selectmen, Green Team, and the Pomfret Proprietors. The Second Town Wide Scarecrow Adventure and Great Pumpkin weigh-in are already being talked about for 2021, Nicholson said.
