Second Annual Scarecrow Event presented by the
Louise E. Moore Senior Center and the
Port Norris Historical Society

October 21, 2019

We hope everyone will have a good laugh and enjoy the 12 scarecrows decorating the light posts on Main Street. Thank you to Commercial Twp for permission to put them around town and to Clint for making that happen for us. Thank you Cindy Tawes, Director of the Senior Center who organized it with the township and the Port Norris Historical Society Members. Special thanks to the Township for putting them up and taking them down for us.

On October 21 from 10 -12, each team that made a scarecrow or two gave them each a name and who they are. So enjoy them all.
