Flocking together



Biddeford residents are being “flocked” and tiger “clawed,” to raise money for Project Sunrise for the class of 2017 at Biddeford High School. Once someone is flocked, they decide where the flamingoes “fly” next. Project Sunrise is a parent volunteer group that comes together each year in August to start planning the Project Graduation celebration for BHS seniors. The event is June 1, on the eve of graduation day, June 2. “We are looking to raise $20,000 to cover the costs of the celebration for all of BHS’s senior class,” said volunteer Jennifer Harnish. “The evening begins with a dinner and is followed by non stop activities and entertainment that go until 1 a.m. The evening is a surprise for our seniors so we really can’t share the line up of all the events we have planned. What I can share is that Project Sunrise is out in our community raising money all the time. We have cash cans at local businesses, bake sales at the home football games, asking for donations for parking for the football games, hosting a community dinner on Nov. 17, selling raffle tickets with prizes of Patriots tickets, Celtics tickets, (Boston University) hockey tickets and 100 gallons of home heating oil.” The raffle will take place on Dec. 5; donations can also be sent to BHS. To learn more about flocking someone, call or text 229-4454. Pictured here is a flocking of Molly Lovell-Keely’s house, managing editor of The Courier.
