It feels like we lived a decade in the last 7 or 8 months. With a global pandemic going on, many wondered what the end-of-year holidays would look like. We kick off this year's holiday season with the Cranford Scarecrow Stroll.Cranford Scarecrow Stroll 2020When you visit downtown Cranford, you might run across some very interesting public displays of "scarecrow" art. These were created by local businesses and residents. Some of the entrants took the term "scarecrow" figuratively rather than literally. But that just made it more fun.Organizers need your help to determine a winner. Visit the downtown Cranford offices at Lot 7 next to King Strength and Performance tomorrow, October 24th. Give them a food donation for Cranford Family Care and receive a special Scarecrow Stroll bag. If you f...
