The Paonia management team is on a PR blitz to convince us the town needs more of our money. By their own data, it just isn't true.
Let me get this straight, I made 20 scarecrows, spent three days putting them together, giving each a lot of thought and time, making each one pretty specific to where they were placed, the cost of around $20 in straw, misc., not counting what the Cedaredge Methodist Thrift Shop and the Shelter Shoppe donated in clothes, my guess at least $100 and someone took them! They were only taken down on Main Street.
