Plastic pink flamingos will land once again in Melrose this October. Until October 3, Melrosians can order a surprise visit from a small, large, or jumbo flock of flamingos to any home in Melrose by going to www.MelroseEdFoundation.org. Your order is tax-deductible. The flock will mysteriously appear on the lawn of your choice, roost for 24 hours, and then fly away. Proceeds from the Join the Flock fundraiser will help the Melrose Education Foundation provide grants to educators within the Melrose Public School district.
Over the last two years, more than 900 flamingos have been placed in Melrose yards, thanks to a team of volunteers and the popularity of this fundraiser. Contributions from previous Join the Flock fundraisers has helped fund grants to all eight Melrose Public Schools, from the ECC to Melrose High School.
Anyone interested in joining a group of volunteers should contact info@MelroseEdFoundation.org.
