They came and are causing quite a stir.
I’ve spoke of the Spray Park Committee before. This is another labour of love. The idea came to us by a “non” committee member. (Even though that’s not entirely true. This woman goes out of her way for us.) So we went with it. Hoping to make a few monies for the Spray Park, have a little fun and hopefully find a few smiles.
So this is what happens.
The flock of flamingos invade a yard. The invaded then gets the “Relocation Specialists” to have them depart their yard by making a donation to the Spray Park.
If you get invaded you then get to nominate a friend or family members yard to be the next “victim” and then they get to do the same and so on and so forth. Its really quite a fun and simple concept.
We are able to create a bit of a buzz thanks to the committee rallying together to come up with cute little stories for each victim (the beauty of a small town!). Things got even more fun when one of the invasion victims said “I have an idea” – from there mini movies were born with characters and skits he wrote himself. (Note: Living in a small town has some major perks!) If you go to the Elkhorn Spray Park Project Facebook group you can see it there. The flamingos aren’t dead yet.
