Warren, Washington & Albany Counties ARC (WWAARC)

1st Annual Scarecrow Contest

Fall into Fall with Warren, Washington, & Albany Counties ARC (WWAARC). Super heroes, visitors from galaxies far away, gigantic pumpkin heads, and black cats are visiting the Warren, Washington & Albany Counties ARC (WWAARC)’s Queensbury and Slingerlands offices’ through Halloween night.

WWAARC’s staff and people we support designed dozens of scarecrows for WWAARC’s 1st annual Scarecrow Display. More than 40 scarecrows are on display from now through Halloween, Oct. 31, between the agency’s two main offices:

Krumkill Road, 334 Krumkill Rd. Slingerlands, NY 12159

 

Quaker, Road, 436 Quaker Rd. Queensbury, NY 12804

 

WWAARC, a chapter of The Arc New York, is a not-for-profit organization supporting people with intellectual and other developmental disabilities in Warren, Washington, and Albany Counties.

Individuals we support worked with staff members to create each unique scarecrow. Creating the scarecrows served as a great team building activity for the individuals because it allowed them to work with others, use their creativity, and sharpen their motor skills. WWAARC Executive Director Dan Murray praised the fall decorative contest. “Scarecrows are such a symbolic representation of the fall season. We started this project to celebrate this wonderful time of year with the individuals we support, our staff, and our community,” Murray pointed out. “We hope everyone will enjoy the hard work put into designing and setting up these unique works of art.”

The public is encouraged to come view our scarecrows and vote on your favorite. Scarecrows with the top three votes from each region (Capital District/Albany and Warren/Washington Counties) will receive prizes from our agency. So come vote for your favorite scarecrow.

Take some great fall photos with your family or take an awesome selfie to share online.
