Danny and Corinne Suire are the winners of La Branche Culturelle’s scarecrow competition held in late October for Public Library Week.
In its inaugural edition, seven original scarecrows were shown on the grounds of the Brownsburg-Chatham public library.
The jury, made up of Geneviève Grenier, cultural development officer for the MRC d’Argenteuil; Lyne St-Jacque, director of the Musée régional d’Argenteuil; and Michel Gauthier, a local artist, honoured the Suires with first prize for their scarecrows, Hémiole.
An honourable mention also went to fourth grade students of l’École Bouchard.
The organization will be working to make the scarecrow competition a yearly staple in Brownsburg-Chatham.
