Flamingo Flocking Fundraiser
If you start to see a bunch of plastic flamingos popping up around town, there is a good reason why.
The Stoughton High Class of 2014, this year's senior class, is holding a "Flamingo Flocking Fundraiser."
You can order plastic flamingos to be placed on the lawns of your friends, families, or neighbors, with the money going to help the SHS Class of 2014.
It's $10 for 12 flamingos, $15 for 24, $20 for 36, and $30 for 60.
Anyone interested can email firstname.lastname@example.org to order a flock.
They will flock anyone in Stoughton and the flamingos will remain on the person's lawn for 24 hours.
Malcolm & Parsons Food Pantry Drive
Drop off any canned goods or non-perishable items at Malcolm & Parsons Insurance Agency's downtown Stoughton office (770 Washington St.) during the months of July and August and Malcolm & Parsons will match the donation.
All proceeds and donations will be distributed to the two local food pantries in Stoughton.
"These are the months when the food pantries are in need the most," Jack Raeke of Malcolm & Parsons wrote in an email. "We have a kiddie Pool set up in our office and hope to fill it with can goods and non perishables. As we did last year Malcolm and Parsons has agreed to match the value of all the donations! THE POOL HAS A LOT MORE ROOM."***
