Pink flamingos will travel from lawn to lawn throughout West Hartford as fundraisers for both Hall High School and Conard High School Safe Grad celebrations.


Linda Wright, Hall High School’s Safe Grad Flocking co-chair, believes that sending a flock of pink flamingos to an unsuspecting family’s lawn is the perfect way to celebrate a graduate as well as raise money for Hall’s and Conard’s Safe Grad parties.

“Now that many of the college decisions have been made, people are starting to look forward to graduation and all of the events leading up to it. Flocking is a great way to share in the spirit, while contributing toward keeping our kids safe on graduation night,” says Glenda Cova, Conard’s Flocking chair.

Flocking orders for Hall or Conard can be placed now! Conard’s Flocking season is April 17-June 9. Hall’s Flocking season is open now and will continue until graduation.

With a $25 donation to Safe Grad, you can send a Flock of Flamingos to anyone residing in West Hartford. Delivery and pickup of each flock is usually done secretly, at night, by parent volunteers, so the recipients awake to a colorful surprise on their lawns!

The Flocking includes a flock of flamingos, a message from the sender, and a congratulatory sign. Flocks usually commemorate a graduation, but they can be sent to celebrate any special occasion, such as birthdays, anniversaries – or just for fun.

You can order a Flock now! Simply access the order form by clicking here for the appropriate websites:
