Flamingos are abound in Milford.
The plastic birds are part of an annual effort known as "Flamingo Flocking" by the Milford After Prom Committee to raise money for a party after the Milford High School Prom.
The After Prom Committee held its kick off this past weekend by flocking Jennifer Walsh, a respected teacher and director of the Milford Special Olympics programs, who was named North America Special Olympics’ 2013 Coach of the Year.
"We thought since Jennifer won such a great award this year for her efforts with the special needs committee, it would be appropriate to honor her with this," After Party Committee Member Loriann Braza said in a statement.
Monetary donations will benefit the Milford High School After Prom Event, which is aimed at providing students a safe, alcohol-free event the night of the prom. The After Prom Party is scheduled for May 23 immediately following the prom at Pinz.
Flocking will continue through May 23. To "flock" a friend, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or visit milfordafterpromparty.webs.com.
For more information, call Loriann at 508-400-6437 or Laureen at 508-450-9644.
Meanwhile, the After Prom Party Committee will meet again on April 14 and May 12. To donate to the After Prom Party efforts, visit milfordafterpromparty.webs.com/donate.
