The Community Dining Room (CDR) kicks off its annual Make Your Own Scarecrow at Bishop's Orchards on Saturday, Oct. 4. The family event and fundraiser takes place every Saturday and Sunday in October as well as Columbus Day, Monday, Oct. 13 and will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. The event will include glitter tattoos, face painting by Funderful Face Painting, and a free children's snack with every scarecrow. All proceeds from scarecrows and glitter tattoos benefit the CDR, located in Branford, a not-for-profit organization currently serving approximately 4,500 meals per month to shoreline neighbors.
