Squarecrow success an inspiration

Shannon Sexton writes:
During the hustle and bustle of each work day, we often lose sight of the small things that bring us together as a community. Who would of thought that a bunch of straw creatures would create such a response from local businesses and organizations or draw such a crowd from out of town? It really has been fun for the StateLine Steel crew and me to participate. I find myself driving around the square daily just to see what's new.

The outpouring of participation made me wonder - what if we all pitched in a couple times a year for things such as this? Welcome baskets to new businesses. Planters or flower baskets around town during the spring, summer and fall months. Light up the town during the holiday season. The list really could go on and on. Such a small amount of effort and funds needed to create such a large showing of community pride and participation. Who knows, a potential new business or family looking to relocate could very well take notice and think "That's the place we want to be!" --Shannon Sexton
