Yarmak Sponsors Boys Soccer Scarecrow
Hartland Heritage Day people's choice contest involves area businesses and groups.
Name: Laura Fiebernitz
Business or group: Hartland Boys Varsity Soccer Team sponsored by Yarmak & Co.
Location of scarecrow: In front of Yarmack building, 11750 Highland Rd
Theme of entry: Soccer Scarecrow
The biggest challenge for Laura Fiebernitz of Yarmak & Co. and the Boys Varsity soccer team when making their soccer player scarecrow was his uniform and how to stuff a scarecrow wearing shorts.
“So, finally we got some sweats,” Fiebernitz said. “We were sweating it though. How are we going to make this stay, how are we going to make this stand. It was so much fun though.”
Fiebernitz, whose son plays on the Hartland soccer team, said that the group putting the scarecrow together wanted to be creative and had ideas of posing the scarecrow in a kicking motion.
“Not building one before, we were like OK, how can we get his leg to stay back, like he’s kicking a ball,” Fiebernitz said laughing. “And then we were like, OK, let’s just get it to stand.”
Yarmak & Co. and the soccer team may have decided that for the first year, they would take baby steps with their Hertiage Day entry, but Fiebernitz also admitted that they are already getting ideas for next year’s contest.
“Looking around," she said. "I’m like, hmm … for next year.”

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.
