Summer of Health – Flamingo Find


Tanner Medical is kicking off their Summer of Health initiative with the Flamingo Find. Hidden around Villa Rica are small flamingos, and it’s up to you to find them all before June 11th!


You must download your passport and once you find a flamingo have the store owner sign/stamp their box in order for the find to count.

I have it on good authority that one of those little guys is hiding inside of the bookstore somewhere, so come by and try to find him!

On June 11th there will be a Flamingo Festival where you can turn in your signed passports and enter to win prizes!
