NATCHEZ — Did you miss the chance to play a great April Fool’s Day joke this week?

The Democrat’s Relay for Life team wants to help you carry out a prank after all, raising money for cancer research along the way.

The Democrat is currently “Flocking for a cure.” Community members can purchase a flock of pink, plastic flamingos and have them sent to the yard of a friend or foe.

The newspaper staff will handle bird transportation and removal.

Orders can be placed online at www.misslouflocking.com or by calling 601-445-3617.

Flocks vary in price based on size and range from $25 to $100.

Anti-flocking insurance is available for $15 for those who’d rather not see the birds on their property.

All proceeds will go to Relay for Life.

Flocking will continue until May 6.

Flocking for a Cure T-shirts will be available at The Democrat’s North Canal Street office.

The Democrat has also pledged to pay 10 cents to Relay for Life for every new fan up to 10,000 on the newspaper’s Facebook fan page between now and May 7, Relay night. To become a fan of The Democrat, visit facebook.com and search for The Natchez Democrat or follow links from natchezdemocrat.com.
