Flamingo thieves still at large


A woman who agreed to have her yard “flamingo-ed” in a fundraiser for the Reynolds High School all-night senior party was startled to find the 25 plastic pink flamingoes placed in her Troutdale yard at 120 S.E. 40th St. stolen Tuesday, April 23.

“Are you kidding,” thought Erika Harnar, parent member of the Reynolds Senior All-Night Party committee, who has been “flocking” the front yards of willing donors twice a night since Easter, raking in $1,100 in funding toward the all-night party on June 7.

“I thought it was a joke,” she said, when she was told one of the two flocks of 25 birds was stolen.

Harnar is asking the community to help find the lost flock. Police were notified of the theft, but no suspects have been identified.

Last year the party committee forked out $16,000 for a night of bowling at Big Al’s.

Back at zero dollars this year, parents chose a less costly option to rent Reynolds Middle School for $300 a night, planning to entertain seniors with a hypnotist, music, food, games, inflatables and a photo-booth.
