Flamingo Fridays!

(Updated 7/25/14 with the Optional Auxiliary Flamingo)

Daphna & Sam are hosting the first "Flamingo Friday" on May 10th at 7 pm (weather permitting).

Keep an eye peeled for the first appearance of The Pink Plastic Flamingo (aka PPF)!

Each week, if you see a Pink Plastic Flamingo perched in a yard in Autumn Walk, wander over to that neighbor’s house on Friday night between 7 pm and 9 pm for a couple of hours of casual socializing! You can bring the kids too.

If You Want to Host A Flamingo Friday:
  • Simply contact the Flamingo Keepers (Daphna or Allie) to borrow the bird. (See the newsletter, coming soon, for contact information.)
  • Plant it in your front yard by Tuesday of that week 
    • Note that you can now also get a second bird, the Optional Auxiliary Flamingo, to place closer to the entrance of the community to ensure that everyone knows to look for the Primary Flamingo in front of your house
  • The host provides soda, ice, glasses, silverware, napkins 
  • Return the bird within a few days of your Flamingo Friday event

Things to Keep in Mind If You’re A Guest:
  • Bring an appetizer if you can, but don’t worry if you can’t 
  • Bring your own beer & wine, the host will only provide soda 
  • The evening will be canceled if it’s raining from 6:30 pm on 
  • Circle the block at least once during the week to see if the PPF is out. 
  • If it is, be sure to tell your neighbors so they know there will be a Flamingo Friday in Autumn Walk!

Help establish a new community tradition by attending or hosting a Flamingo Friday...and most importantly, by having fun!
