If you passed by the President's house today, you most likely saw the parade of brightly colored flamingos across the lawn. These blue and yellow birds carried with them a message: Dr. Nord's lawn is being held hostage, and the random is to be paid. If the current holder of the flamingos chooses to donate, they get to choose who will receive them next. So where did these mysterious birds come from? They are a creative effort by the Haiti Medical Mission Team to fund raise for their trip. Amanda Martini is heading up the effort, but the entire team is getting involved and helping out. Volunteers from the team crept out in the middle of the night to accomplish the mission. They will continue picking up and relocating the birds under the cover of night as they move from house to house. Keep an eye out around Salem for the next few weeks and see where the birds migrate to.
