FFA’s 24-foot-tall scarecrow comes to life

B y Alissa Dunavan
Granville FFA Reporter

The time has finally come for the Granville Future Farmers of America’s 24-foot-tall scarecrow to stand tall next to their chapter store on Route 22 in Hebron. On Sunday, Sept. 19, the Granville FFA members worked hard as a team to finish sewing the clothes and stuffing the scarecrow.
By mid-afternoon the scarecrow was finished and ready to be displayed. Although it wasn’t an easy task for the FFA kids, they pulled together and with a few failed attempts they successfully staked the scarecrow into the ground and secured it. Several FFA parents were visiting the store and had a great time snapping pictures of the scarecrow; a couple of parents even offered their help and joined in the raising of the scarecrow.
The oversized scarecrow is proudly displayed beside the Granville FFA’s Chapter store for the enjoyment of the passersby and customers. The Granville FFA also would like to remind everyone that they can see the massive scarecrow up close on Oct. 2 along with a big celebration of the grand opening of their chapter farm!
The FFA store is located at 6972 State Route 22 in Hebron, between Granville and Salem.
