This year the annual migration of flamingos to Ogdensburg will be heralding the 10th anniversary of the Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center Festival of Trees. Pictured is Aspen Ramie hearing the news directly from the pink birds.
The flocks will begin their nightly appearances at Ogdensburg homes and businesses beginning Nov. 1. They are part of the fundraising and advertising effort for the Festival of Trees and their arrival begins the countdown to the main event. The Festival of Trees will be held on Dec. 7 at the Oddfellows.
If you would like to have these colorful birds visit your home or business or that of a friend and support the CHMC Auxiliary please contact Teresa Loffler at 393-2033 or Donna Pirie at 393-7426.
The cost of sponsorship is $25 per visit. The slots fill up fast so schedule your visit soon.
