Hartland Museum Exhibits Scarecrow On Loan
Hartland Heritage Day people's choice contest involves area businesses and groups.
Name: Hildy Foley
Business or group: Florence B. Dearing Museum
Location of scarecrow: Porch of the museum, 3505 Avon St
Theme of entry: Borrowed for the moment!
The Florence B. Dearing Museum's happy-faced scarecrow entry into the Hartland Heritage Day contest arrives from the basement of the Marshall Postal Museum.
After checking with her friend and curator, museum docent Hildy Foley brought the borrowed scarecrow to Hartland, and for the time being, the Marshall scarecrow is greeting and catching up with the locals of Hartland from his post on the front porch of the museum.
“So basically, that’s all he is,” said Foley, a Hartland former postmaster. “He’s on loan.”

You can enter a drawing to win a $25 gift card to Meijer by being the first to tell us on our website where Hartland Patch's scarecrow is today. On Wednesday, he was at the Doodle's Ice Cream & Treats and Angela Fraser correctly pointed it out, so she's the fifth in the drawing. There are now two more chances to get in.
