The Gallery in Hurricane is sponsoring a Community Day in October, and the highlight is a scarecrow decorating contest.
Businesses and organizations are invited to a decorate a scarecrow in any way they like, then bring it to The Gallery by this Saturday for judging. The Gallery, which is a flower and gift shop, is located at 3750 Teays Valley Road.
Voting will continue through Oct. 14. The scarecrows will be displayed in front of the shop. The winner will receive $100 for their favorite charity, plus a catered lunch for up to 10.
On Oct. 12, The Gallery will host Community Day, with a hot dog sale from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to benefit a local youth ministry. At noon, see a "scarecrow come to life."
Anyone who wants to put up a booth for their crafts, antiques or organization is invited to do so, free of charge, during the Community Day.
The Gallery is owned by Mary Zigmond.
