The Rotary Club of Barnwell County is currently sponsoring a Scarecrow Contest which is also a fundraiser for the club. Local businesses and schools sponsored the creation of scarecrows which are on display in Barnwell. Pictures were taken of the “contestants” and posted on the club’s Facebook page. Folks are encouraged to scroll through the album of contestants and “Like”/vote for their favorite scarecrow. After 10 days the page has already garnered 16,591 people reached and 5,254 engagements. Additionally, a television station in Augusta, Georgia (that also serves the North Augusta, Aiken, Barnwell and Allendale area) found out about the display and highlighted it on one of their programs.
Want to join in on the fun? Go to https://www.facebook.com/barnwellrotary/ and go to the Scarecrow Contest album post. Scroll through the pictures of the “contestants” and LIKE your favorite. Voting runs through November 7.
