This morning, McAlester News-Capital employees came in to work to find a flock of pink flamingoes adorning the front lawn. Upon careful examination of the flock, a sign was found reading in part, "You have been "Flamingoed" by 'MacU.'" Which is the short name for McAlester United Soccer Association.
The sign goes on to say, "Thank you for the support and sense of humor." According to Publisher Amy Johns, being "Flamingoed" is a fundraising effort. She said she has seen this fundraisor before and a family members house was Flamingoed. She said not only the family members yard had been flammingoed but so had their roof.
