SCARECROW ON THE SQUARE- 2018
A BIG Thank You to everyone who participated in creating the scarecrows, everything from donating items, building, stuffing, painting – you all helped make these adorable creatures possible. Now come on out Sunday afternoon (around 2:00) to the Town Square in Hiawassee to help set these guys up or cheer us on as we put ARTWORKS and GEORGIA MOUNTAIN FAIRGROUNDS on display on the square. Also, a BIG Thank You to Hilda Thomason from the Georgia Mountain Fairgrounds for allowing us to participate in creating their Scarecrows and applying Artwork’s Artistic Touch. See you there . . . . Happy Fall Y’all!" Margaret Windham
