Cambria Scarecrow mixer

The Cambria Scarecrow Committee recently hosted a chamber mixer and open house. 

The Scarecrow Festival takes place every year in October, and this gathering helped to show people what goes on the rest of the year. Visitors saw “Doctor Crow” where previous scarecrows are fixed up, tweaked, and have their costumes changed. Everyone also saw the space where all the scarecrows are kept safe and sound until the following year.

Lorienne Schwenk, executive director for the Chamber, greeted the crowd of about 50 people and also introduced Tricia Congdon, one of the newest Chamber members. Those in attendance included Chamber members who got to “mix,” and members of the community who are interested in the Scarecrows. 

During the mixer, Jim Chalifoux entertained everybody with his guitar and ukelele. The Spot restaurant generously donated food. Harmony Cellars kindly donated wines.
