GOOD HOPE, Ala. – The rumors that have been flying around the City of Good Hope were confirmed by Mayor Jerry Bartlett Tuesday morning. Flocks of the species Polyethylene Phoenicopterus ruber have fallen into the hands of the Sizzlin’ Seniors and that could mean trouble. Commonly known as the plastic pink flamingo, these flocks of birds are poised to flock to yards within the Good Hope school district.  

After over a year on COVID-19 hiatus, the Sizzlin’ Seniors of Good Hope are back in full swing and hoping to raise some money for their upcoming activities. They’ve enlisted the help of the flamingos in a new, fun and zany fundraiser- YOU’VE BEEN FLOCKED!! 

Here’s how it works: 

For a small $20 donation, you can lovingly have a friend, neighbor, co-worker, family member or whomever (preferably a good sport) flocked with a yard full of pink flamingos. The recipient is then encouraged to donate $20 so they can choose the next location for the flock to roost.  

The recipient is not required to make a donation and the flock will soon relocate to a new location after two days regardless.  

If you want to protect your yard from a potential flocking, a flocking insurance policy can be obtained to protect your home with a $20 donation.  

The flockings are currently underway and the fundraiser will end Aug. 27.  

If you would like to participate in the fun or have any questions, contact Lori at admin@goodhopeal.com or by phone at 256-739-3757.
