Salem 150th Anniversary Committee Nativity Flamingo Fundraiser


Two flocks of lovely pink flamingos have been sighted and should be arriving in town December 1.  They may come and roost on your lawn overnight.  Then, for a small fee, they will migrate to another lawn (you can also send them to a specific lawn!).  To prevent the flocks from landing in your yard, “Flamingo Prevention Insurance” may be purchased.

We are looking for volunteers to help costume the flamingos and to help “shepherd” them from lawn to lawn.  If this sounds like something you’d like to participate in, there are sign-up sheets in the narthex.

If you have any questions, please call the office (815/895-9171) or email:

Proceeds from the Flamingo Fundraiser will be used for the Catered 150th Celebration Dinner in April 2020.  Watch for more information in the November Good News Newsletter and the weekly announcements.
