You’ve Been Flocked!
This is the newest catch phrase circling around some Rotary clubs in District 7770. The catch? Lots of dollars collected for a club’s favorite cause. The Rotary Club of Lake Marion at Santee’s head flamingo herder, Randal Smoak made it easy for the club to collect nearly $1100 in one month. Members contributed time to help “shoo” the flock from yard to yard.
Flocks of plastic pink flamingos appeared in neighbors’ yards with a sign and an explanation as to how to get the flock moved to another yard. A donation was asked for the removal and replacement of the flock. The flock consisted of 20 birds.
The project was a huge success and became quite a hit, so much so that people actually called to have the flock appear in their own yards.
Lake Marion Rotary donated half of the proceeds to CART and the other half for Polio Plus.
