Scarecrows on the Street Results

**drumroll, please!**

 

It’s been a great campaign, with lots of hot competition between Scarecrows, votes galore, and plenty of good exercise for Enderby’s citizens!

Vote tabulation is complete, and we have a clear winner –

 

Priscilla is Queen! Not only of the Enderby & District Garden Club, but of the 2020 Scarecrows on the Street Enderby Competition!

 

Unlike in other votes this year, Priscilla of the Enderby & District Garden Club has taken the winning spot with a wide margin. Congratulations to the Garden Club, and we will be in touch for your promotional package!

However – we had a stunning upset in terms of other entries, which requires a second place prize:

Courtyard Gallery

Small Axe Roadhouse

Quilakwa RV Park

TIED for Second Place!

These lucky and creative businesses will be receiving a free e-blast (posts, shares, email newsletter feature) in 2020-21 for an event!

Many thanks to everyone who took a stroll through a golden (or majestically foggy) autumn day, voted on our local business Scarecrows, and helped out our community! Thanks to our local businesses who created such amazing autumn displays, and thanks to Armstrong-Spallumcheen Chamber of Commerce and Executive Director Patti Noonan for sharing this great event with Enderby.

Public Art with Teeth!

Look for the absolutely stunning spirit bear mural now taking shape outside the east side of Red Apple in downtown Enderby!

Thanks to the Enderby & District Arts Council, artist Todd MacCormac and, of course, the owners of Red Apple’s building, for bringing this lovely piece of art to our town. It will make a great guardian of the bridge, and a stunning welcome to Enderby from the Mabel Lake road.

Thanks to the BC Arts Council for its public art funding – the BCAC is an invaluable resource for communities in their arts activities!

In addition, member business MacGregor Logistics Ltd is filming the creation of the mural and making a documentary featuring artist, EDAC and local interviews about the creation of the piece, which will be coming in August 2020.

Check out the progress on the mural throughout the weekend, and enjoy the art on our Red Apple shop for years to come.

A Great Big Virtual Thank You…

… for making Enderby’s Virtual Canada Day a resounding success!

From the beautiful opening songs of Linzy Lunkwist, to the rockin’ tunes of the Dixie Fried Hep Katz, from the online trivia contest hosted by Shawn Shishido to the amazing responses to our Canada Day contests, Virtual Canada Day helped us all come together, though circumstances made us have to stay apart.

While we hope that we can all meet in person next year, the Enderby & District Chamber of Commerce and the City of Enderby will make certain that, if we have to celebrate community milestones distantly, we can do it- and rock it- like we did this Canada Day.

Thanks to the City of Enderby and its councillors and mayor, The Enderby & District Arts Council and our local member businesses for their support of the event, and we hope to see everyone in person next year!
