The scarecrow at the post office is a salute to breast cancer prevention efforts.

The second-annual Downtown Business Scarecrow Event takes place Oct 1-31.

The campaign serves as a welcome to fall and the upcoming holiday season. Organizer Skip Dahms invites all businesses to participate. Custom-designed scarecrows can be placed outside on the light poles in the month of October. The design can match the feel of your business or be a traditional-style scarecrow.
