You’ve been flocked! Plastic flamingos planted on lawns to promote togetherness during pandemic

first_imgMember Tijana Zarick was recently flocked by a fellow member. While she has a major fear of birds, when she found out what the flocking was all about, she was happy to know others were thinking of her during this tough time. Once you’re flocked, the expectation is you then flock someone else to keep the chain going. Even though classes are now being held in-person again, the flocking has continued as members return. Zarick said she’s a little hesitant to do so due to her bird fear, but hopefully the birds on her lawn will migrate to another one sometime soon. “I love it, it reminds me that they’re thinking of me and it shows a sense of activity and community,” said Zarick. JOHNSON CITY (WBNG) — Members of the JAM fitness community, a workout studio in Vestal, are taking turns placing bunches of fake flamingos on each other’s lawns to provide support through the pandemic. It started as a way to stay connected to other members when classes couldn’t be held in person due to the pandemic.last_img
