|One of the Milton Area Chamber of Commerce, Industry & Tourism’s (MACCIT) goals is to improve tourism within the Milton area. The Tourism and Events Committee is working on promoting tourism through community events and decorations. We would like to enlist the participation of local youth with these events.
An upcoming event is the Fall Festival Scarecrow Creation Contest. The scarecrows will be created by local youth organizations, and placed throughout the community on lamp posts from mid September to the end of November. The lamp posts will include the scarecrow, name of the youth organization and a business sponsor, along with decorations such as corn stalks, bales of straw and pumpkins.
MACCIT will be recruiting business sponsors to help with the creation of the scarecrows. With the business sponsorships, we will reimburse each group with $25 for supplies to create the scarecrow once it has been handed in along with a receipt from their supply purchases. The scarecrows will then be judged by the Milton Community and prizes will be awarded.
We ask that you respond to MACCIT with your intended interest in participation by August 14. You may contact us by phone at 868-6222 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org. More details will be provided as the fall approaches.
