Reindeer enlisted to help Children's Auction

Flamingos aren't usually the first creatures that come to mind when people think about Christmas, but they are the inspiration for a new fundraising idea designed to benefit the annual Lakes Region Children’s Auction.

Mitch Hamel, a broker at Verani Realty in Belmont and member of that business’s Verani Realty Reindeer team that is raising money for the Children’s Auction, said he recently drove through the town of Weare, where “years ago there was a group that used to put pink flamingos in people’s yards.”

Not real birds, of course, but the plastic variety that some people see as the epitome of tackiness.
