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.
