Flamingos fundraiser for Haynes House

H aynes House of Hope has done a wide variety of fundraisers, ranging from dinner-dances and concerts to road races and raffles.

Next up? Flamingos.

The respite home’s “Flocking” fundraiser, which is already under way, works like this: A donor gives $25, and a group of volunteers plants a “flock” of plastic, pink flamingos on the lawn of the donor’s choice. Village trustee Gordon Smith’s yard has been hit, as has the TD Bank branch downtown.

Janelle Clark, the executive director of Haynes House, said that Cheryl Cooper in Wells, Vt., was also visited by a flock, as was Bob Bascom of radio station WVNR. Other stops on the birds’ itinerary include the homes of Heather Thomas, and Board of Education member Kevin Ely, as well as Yorkmont Farm.

Each flock appears for a day and then disappears, only to be found on another yard. For a donation of $25, you can send the birds winging their way to the lawn of your choice. If you prefer to purchase “flocking insurance” in order to prevent the birds from migrating into your yard, you can make a donation of $25.

When a flock lands, it will come with a letter explaining the event and letting the friend know that the flock will fly away that evening.  When requesting a landing place for the flamingos, please remember that they are not allowed to flock on public property or at apartment complexes.

To order a flock, please contact Janelle at 642-8155, or check the website at www.thehayneshouseofhope.com to download the “flocking” or “anti-flocking” order form.
