Band launches flamingos

This weekend the Sweetwater High School Band will begin its "Flamingo Fundraiser." Yards across Sweetwater will be visited by "Flamingo flocks of band signs." This fundraiser will benefit the band's trip to Dallas, where they will perform in the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center, home of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra.For the low price of only $10, Sweetwater residents may send a "flock of music notes" to a friend's address, either with a charming note, or anonymously. Folks who have been "noted" are asked to donate $10 for the flock's removal, or for just $15, they can send the flock to another yard of their choice! In addition, "Anti-Flocking Insurance" can be purchased for $10, which guarantees that no flock will roost on your lawn as they migrate around Sweetwater during the course of this fundraising event.If you would like to join the fun and send a flock to someone or purchase "Anti-Flocking Insurance," contact Judith Kitchens at 627-8043. During the daytime hours on weekdays, please leave a message and your call will be returned ASAP.
