Scarecrow Selfie!

Friday, October 27, 2017


On October 21st about 11 PM, the Nebraska City Police Department declared *BREAKING NEWS* on their Facebook page, announcing that they were able to “detain” a suspect at our Nebraska City Branch. Fortunately, it was just the branch’s scarecrow, Uncle Penny Bags! He then challenged the officers to a “quick” game of Monopoly and it was quite the showdown. You can check out the rest of their Facebook post at or




The NCPD has continued their tradition of taking selfies with the local scarecrows after achieving their goal of 100 likes on their announcement post on Facebook. The scarecrows are part of The Nebraska City Chamber of Tourism & Commerce’s 2nd Annual Scarecrow Contest that goes through the month of October. Over 33 businesses are participating by creating their own unique scarecrow and displaying them in their windows, entryways, or outside. Everyone is encouraged to grab a ballot from the local businesses and vote for their favorite three! Judging goes until October 31st and winners will be announced November 1st.
