FALLBROOK – A variety of scarecrows can be seen around Fallbrook this month. Resident Mary Sullivan made one this year to honor Araxy Moosa, "a very important woman in our friendly village who has single handedly united our community by teaching us a wonderful game – Mahjong," she said.

The "Mahjong Queen" scarecrow is the work of Mary Sullivan. (The "Mahjong Queen" scarecrow is the work of Mary Sullivan.)

The game is played at various restaurants in town on a regular basis and in people's homes. For her Mahjong Queen scarecrow, Sullivan used a "Queen" costume and decorated it with mahjong flower and joker tiles. The pearl necklace with the #1 flower tile was given to her by Moosa. "I was very honored," Sullivan said. The hand shown in the tray is a special hand-Run, Pung & a Pair (with a bouquet!)

The ScareCREW committee has announced that the scarecrows will be judged by an impartial panel from Oct. 17 to Oct. 21. There will be no "People's Choice" ballots this year. Winners will be recognized in the Village News the last week of October.
