April Fool’s! Pink flamingos land at Jackson-Milton High School
NORTH JACKSON — The pink pranksters of First Federated Church, 10786 Mahoning Ave., have done it again!
The April Fool’s Day target of the yard-full of plastic pink flamingos is the track at Jackson-Milton High School in “honor” of Dan Crish, assistant track coach.
Linda Crish bought a ticket and submitted her son’s name after reading about the project in The Vindicator.
“I just thought it was such a good cause to raise money for the church’s food pantry and have some fun. If Dan gets a little embarrassed, that’s just a bonus,” she said.
“The goal was $600 to buy a new freezer,” said Pastor Jack Acri. “We came up just a little short but we’ll find a way to make it happen.”
Get Flocked is the second annual fundraiser with proceeds benefiting Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard, the church food pantry that serves about 2,000 a year. Participants bought tickets and could submit the name of a person to receive the flock of pink flamingos.
