Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, the flamingos used for the annual fundraiser will no longer be placed in close proximity to each other (see inset). This is on the CDC recommendation that social distancing be practiced by keeping a distance (approximately 6 feet or 2 meters) from others when possible.
The fundraiser “YOU’VE BEEN FLOCKED!” has been a mainstay of Project Graduation for many years. For a suggested donation of $30 (or more), a crack team of flamingo wranglers will, under the cover of darkness, decorate any recipient’s front lawn with a flamboyance of flamingos for 48 hours (say that ten times fast). After 48 hours, the flamingos will be removed and the next flocking recipient will be flocked.
The flocking games are slated to begin the week of March 15th. Flocking proceeds will support the 36th Annual FHS Project Graduation to be held on the night of graduation this June. This all-night, all-volunteer run event costs tens of the thousands of dollars and is supported by local businesses, residents, and fundraisers such as the FLOCKING.
“The primary aims of Project Graduation activities are to increase awareness of the dangers of drinking, drugging and driving and to reduce the number of youth involved in alcohol and other drug-related highway crashes. Across the country, Project Graduation and the chemical-free celebrations it inspired are the new tradition for graduating seniors.”
