The make-a-scarecrow competition attracted several competitors.

McConnell Creek Fall Fair winners announced

Several residents put their crafts, veggies and flowers up for judging

Overall winners at the Fall Fair at McConnell Creek are Anna Kopanyas in the adult category and Finley Penningroth in the children’s.

First prize winners were Shirley Wiesehahn, vegetables and flowers; Carol Nicholson, potted plants; Anna Kopanyas, fresh foods; Judy Badham, preserved foods; Brandi Penningroth, eggs; Finley Penningroth, crafts; and Willow Bertrand, children’s section.

There were scarecrows everywhere (from the make-a-scarecrow competition) and crafts for children outside. The customary display of activities over the past year, including tables of vegetables and fruits, of canning, jams and baked goods, and an unbelievable display of crafts was indoors.

Items donated from the displays were auctioned at the end.
