DOWNEY - Soroptimist International of Downey is conducting a Flamingo Flocking fundraiser, in which residents pay money to have a friend's lawn "held hostage" by pink flamingos.Soroptimist members go to the "victim's" house unnoticed and stick the flamingos in the yard, leaving behind a note on the front porch on how to have the flamingos removed. The removal fee is $50. So far, Soroptimist has flocked the homes of former mayor Meredith Perkins, Bob Ciatti, Alex Saab and Councilman Mario Guerra. All money raised supports Soroptimist's charitable projects. To request a flocking, call Saywell Florist at (562) 806-3217.
