Ever seen a pink elephant? No, probably not. Well, how about a pink flamingo? Pink flamingos have been showing up on lawns in the Bennington area as the 2009-10 fundraiser chosen by the Mount Anthony Music Parents Association, said the Bennington Banner. Funds raised will be used to send the MAUHS choir and band to a four-day music competition in Philadelphia. Here’s how it works: people who have been “flocked” (the technical term for a lawn full of flamingos), can pay to send flocks of yard flamingos – or magnetic car flamingos – to friends or neighbors or even to those they don’t particularly like. Each flocking costs $20; seniors and students get a $5 discount. There are other payment options available if you’re short on lawn space. There are some general guidelines for choosing who to flock: done in good spirit; select targets with a good sense of humor; and flock-decorate at night.
