The Staff from Feathers Salon decided to donate their $300 prize money to the Community Service Association, New Providence EMS and New Providence Fire Department. 

New Providence Business extends its thanks to everyone for their participation, whether they built a scarecrow, voted in the contest, or visited the downtown to enjoy the festive atmosphere and support local businesses.  New Providence Business Community promises the scarecrows will be back next year and reminds residents, it’s never too early to start planning your scarecrow!
