Newtown Parks and Recreation and Newtown Economic and Community Development are hosting their 2nd Annual Scarecrow Contest using Fairfield Hills lamp posts. Individuals, families, businesses, sports teams and organizations are participating, for a fee, by building a unique scarecrow. They can be placed on the lamp posts through Monday. The community will then vote next week on their favorite. A winner of the family pool/beach membership will be announced on the 30th.
