Community members don't need to look far to support local groups and organizations. Below are some of the fundraisers currently underway.

Waitsburg FFA

Members are getting ready for the State FFA Convention in May and the annual Flamingo Fundraiser began on April 15. For a $20 donation, a flock of bright pink flamingos will migrate to the yard of your choice, within Waitsburg city limits. The flock will quietly disappear the following evening. Anti-flocking insurance is available for $10.

To order a flocking or purchase insurance, contact Nicole Abel at 301-6560 and leave a message or email

The club will have annuals including petunia, calibrachoa, bacopa, geranium, lobelia and marigolds. They will also have a few perennials, succulents and vegetables including tomatoes, peppers, cabbage and herbs.
