Young Life raises funds with flamingo placement


Since its latest fundraising bash last November, Young Life Seward is making its presence known in more ways than one. The trained leaders of Young Life work to bring youth of all walks of life together for wacky activities, friendship and to meet Christ in a fun and safe way. Leaders care to love them unconditionally regardless of their initial choices about faith.

Young Life Seward is equipped with a paid staff member, trained youth leaders and is now holding monthly gatherings for high school age students. They look to build up youth participation at their planned events and encourage interested students entering tenth grade or older to a camp experience in Oregon. Camp dates are June 22-28th for which YL is raising scholarship funds. Currently Dana Ivy serves as staff coordinator, is in charge of organizing events, recruiting and training youth leaders and helps to organize fundraisers

The latest fundraiser of flocking flamingos has served up some winter fun as they prove to be a colorful addition to the snowy backdrop of Seward. Youth are pranking their neighbors around town by secretly placing plastic pink flamingos in their yards and entryways. Victims pay to have them removed, then exercise an option of having another yard of their liking be flocked. This activity will be continuing into June and youth are welcome to join the fun.
