Flamingos for hire in Meredith

A flock of 48 plastic flamingos arrived in Hesky Park in Meredith Friday morning to mark the start of a fundraising drive for the Inter-Lakes Elementary School Living Classroom Greenhouse Initiative. The school is planning  to build a 24 foot by 48 foot greenhouse on school grounds as a hands-on learning venue and needs to raise $65,000 for the project. The flamingos can be placed on the lawn of a friend or neighbor for a fee and that person will then have to pay to have them moved to another location. For more information,  contact the Inter-Lakes Elementary School or visit the Inter-Lakes greenhouse home page. (Roger Amsden photo for The Laconia Daily Sun)
