WHS’s Project Graduation’s pink flamingos are back !

Post date: Mar 03, 2016 11:36:12 AM

Project Graduation for the Class of 2016 at Wells High School has dusted off their pink flamingos and are once again “flocking” lawns of homes and businesses to raise funds for their chemical-free graduation party for graduating seniors in June.

Flocking is simply having Project Graduation plant 15, 30 or 50 plastic pink flamingos on someone’s lawn for a three-day period. To do this, Project Graduation asks for a donation of $20 for 15 birds, $25 for 30 birds or $40 for 50 birds to “flock” a friend or neighbor’s lawn; all in good fun and for a great cause.

The plastic birds come with decoration including hats, t-shirts, necklaces, flags and Hawaiian leis. Birds can be placed on someone’s lawn for a specific occasion including birthdays, anniversaries, etc. and can be decorated according to the special event.

There are a couple other ways to donate to this cause. If you do not want your friend to know that it was you who ordered the flamingo flocking, it will cost you $5. And it is $15 for insurance from being flocked in which the one who ordered the flocking on you will be flocked.

Some of the other fundraising projects that Project Graduation will be presenting include a “Wells Night” at a Maine Red Claws game Friday, March 18th at the Portland Expo. Tickets are $10 with $4 of each ticket going to Project Graduation. Project Graduation is also planning a Basket Raffle and Silent Auction in the Wells Junior High School gymnasium on April 8th.

For more information on the above events and to bring a flock of pink flamingos to someone near and dear to you, please contact Tammy Ramsey at 207-251-1069 or send her an email at oramsey@maine.rr.com. Project Graduation plans to conduct the flocking campaign until the end of May.

According to Project Grad’s Tammy Ramsey, there are about 104 students in the Class of 2016. Any parent of a graduating student is invited to sign up to receive email updates from Project Graduation.

The birds strike again - this time on the lawn at the Post Road Veterinary Clinic in Wells.
