Mary Knight: More credit to spread around
Success of the student art hung around the square goes to many others, Mary Knight says - and lists them in this article. And she says, work is already under way to surpass the huge success of this year's event

The caption under the charming picture of Vickie McQueary's granddaughter, Luxie, gives credit to only one of the brainstormers. Vonnie Kolbenschlag and I put scarecrows drawn by second graders up at the 2015 Fall Heritage Festival at the Homeplace on Green River.
The 2015 efforts of art teachers Darlene Campbell,of the Adair County Primary Center and Jeff Walker, of Taylor County Elementary School were hung in the house at the Homeplace, but were viewed by few people. Walking around the Square in Columbia, it seemed only logical to try it again.
All the business owners were delighted to take part, and went out of their way to help the members of the Adair County Garden Club hang the Scarecrows.
Darlene Campbell, of ACPC, was her usual dyn-o-mite self, getting the pictures ready for us.
Next year, we hope to include the second graders being home-schooled, and get senior citizens, 70 years and older, to submit their scarecrows. We are hoping to develop a more convenient method of displaying the pictures.
Garden Club members/hangers Lila Loy, Betty Knifley and more, are already looking forward to what Mrs. Campbell's 2017-18 group produces, and we can't wait to see the new crop of Squarecrows. They are going to have to be pretty darned good to beat this year's efforts!!!!
Thanks, - Mary Knight
