Harvest Fest raises funds, spirits

To the editor,

I would like to thank Tom Bridge and the staff of Durango Nursery & Supply for its recent Harvest Festival including the scarecrow contest to raise funds for local nonprofit organizations. The Scarecrow Stroll was filled with interesting, creative and well-executed scarecrows from many nonprofit organizations in Durango.

The contest that the staff put on, and the sharing of the proceeds from the sale of tickets to vote for the best scarecrow, is much appreciated by all of the people, children and dogs that attended and made this year’s Harvest Festival the largest ever.

Thanks to Tom and all of the DNS staff for their work and effort to help fundraise for nonprofits and treat everyone to a great time.

– John Anderson, president, Durango Botanical Society
