*Rain or Shine - We'll be under a tent.


It was a rainy morning here in Northern New Hampshire, but our Franconia office at Peabody & Smith Realty was covered in pink! Pink Flamingos!
Our office was the lucky recipient of a getting "Flocked" by the Profile School Class of 2022. 

The class fundraiser is a popular one in the area! These pink beauties showed up sometime in the night, and were discovered when dawn arrived. These will be on our lawn for few days, until they make their way to their next destination - we have paid the Profile Class of 2022, $30 to have them leave a little faster and go to someone else's lawn...where will they turn up next? 

Photo credit to Deb Ugo from our Franconia office. Thank you Deb and thank you to whoever "Flocked" us...they were at Iron Furnace Brewing on Sunday morning, so we have a good indication where they may have been sent from!

If you want to send these along to someone, feel free to get in touch with the senior class. You can also purchase "flocking" insurance, should you want to avoid this! Either way, feel free to contact Jill Brewer at Profile School,

  4. Robert Frost Museum on Ridge Road in Franconia, NH. The museum was founded in 1976 when a group of neighbors persuaded other folks at the Franconia Town Meeting to approve the purchase of the farmhouse where Robert Frost and his family lived. He had spent 19 years summering in the area. The Frost Place is a nonprofit educational center for poetry and the arts which is owned by the town of Franconia.
