WETHERSFIELD, Conn. — They’re up and down Main Street and all over Wethersfield.￼
“For me it is about being part of the community,” says Kari Ann Greaves with Reflections Counseling
“Especially during the time of Covid, it is uplifting and we really just need this distraction￼,” says Wethersfield mom, Robin Abraham.
Scarecrows are cropping up as part of the Wethersfield Shopkeepers Association’s tradition￼that turns 25 this year!
“The cool thing about it is not only is it families in Wethersfield, we also have businesses to￼￼o,” says Greaves.
The displays can be spotted at homes and businesses large and small. Greaves works as a counselor in town and says something as simple as a visit can help families find calm in a time of Covid.
“I think coming down here is really a fun family activity, It is a good break from the day, if you are working from home and you can be able to come along And see the different stories that each scarecrow tells,” she says.
Mayor Michael Rell says a record 50-plus scarecrows in the middle of a pandemic says a lot about his town.
“It is great it says people really rally for their neighbors and the businesses that support them, It also says a lot of people areLooking for good,” says Rell.
Judging starts this week and the scarecrows are on display through November 3.
