Where in the World is Smokey?

Finding the Scariest Scarecrow in Maine

Aimee Ruzicka graduated from UT Knoxville in 1971 with a bachelor’s degree in history and in 1974 with a master’s degree in library science. A retired law librarian, she now lives in Nesquehoning, Pa., in the southern Poconos.

Ruzicka and her husband were touring New England in October and happened to stop in Ogunquit, Maine, during the annual fall OgunquitFest. One of the highlights of the festival is its scarecrow contest, where businesses and residences festoon their grounds with creative scarecrow decorations. This year they had a “green theme.” There was an extra prize for the greenest scarecrow.

“‘Green’ meant anything from the color green to something made of recycled materials or one that just had an environmental theme,” Ruzicka added.
