Pink flamingos ready to roost on lawns

Haverhill High School’s Hockey Boosters will hold their third annual pink flamingo fundraiser Nov. 4 through Nov. 21.

Flamingos might appear just about anywhere on Haverhill front lawns. Residents are asked not to harm the birds, which will roost at a site for a 24-hour period before migrating to another lawn. If a flamingo appears on your lawn and you would like to specify the next person’s (or victim’s) lawn, follow the instructions attached to the bird.

You can purchase anti-flocking insurance to assure they do not return to your home. You can purchase a single flamingo for $10 or a flock of flamingos to send to anyone within the city. If you purchase a flock of three or more, you will be entered into a drawing to win $100 cash. Whoever finds the Haverhill High School Thanksgiving Turkey roosting on their lawn on Thanksgiving morning will be the winner of the drawing. A member of the hockey team will deliver the prize on Thanksgiving day and will collect the turkey. For more information or to place an immediate order send your request to HHSHockeyBooster35@hotmail.com or MMalone35@hotmail.com. You can also HHS Hockey Boosters President Michelle Malone at 978-875-3588.
