“We are so honored and excited to be partnering with the New Canaan Chamber of Commerce again this year” said Marley Thackray, president of the Young Women’s League. “Our planning committee has scheduled a full day of family-friendly activities in the Pop Up Park area – it will be a great way to catch up after the summer, support the fantastic businesses here and enjoy our beautiful village together ”  A full schedule of activities will be published on the YWL website www.ywlnewcanaan.org at the end of the month.
 
Families, businesses and other organizations can purchase kits to participate in New Canaan’s second annual Scarecrow Decorating Contest, generously sponsored by Weed & Duryea.  Scarecrows will again hang from the lamp posts in town from October 14th-31st, and winners will be announced at the Halloween Parade on October 29th.
