Memories of The Good Ol’ Days

Hanson Services honors memories of an era gone by with their 2014 entry into the Lakewood Scarecrow Festival. For the second straight year, Madison Avenue is alive with an array of scarecrows- some scary, some happy and some just plain silly. Hanson employees, lead by Lily Yee and Jim Harris, created a spectacular seasonal display featuring Scarecrow Raggedy Ann and Andy. As providers of care to older adults, Hanson Services appreciates the opportunity to revisit memories and happy times with our clients. And while these cheerful figures may keep the crows away, friendly ground squirrel neighbors are enjoying the fall bounty of pumpkins, apples and hay.Take a quick trip down Madison Avenue in Lakewood, Ohio to check out all the entries then stop by and vote for your favorites.
