Flocks of Hope
Flocks of Hope was inspired by local artist Liz Sharp to show gratitude to first responders who stepped up over the last year to help people during the COVID-19 crisis. The Crane is a bird that symbolizes many things like strength and resilience. Flying as a flock, the cranes show that together we can be strong, resilient, and hopeful.
Approximately 5,000 paper cranes were created and donated from all over the country including many from Cortland and Homer. Many students, teachers and staff from across the district worked hard and created paper cranes to donate to the project. Many of the cranes were even painted with acrylic to allow them to stand up to the elements better.
Thousands of cranes are now flying from trees in the Homer Green, if you get a chance go and see them.
