Home Street Middle School announced this week the launching of a unique fundraising activity in which the community can be â€śColted.â€ť
Basically, if residents wake up to find an obnoxiously painted wooded colt in their yard, theyâ€™ve been â€śColted.â€ť
But itâ€™s all in good fun â€“ and for a good cause, according to the school.
â€śVictimsâ€ť of the colt prank can call HSMS at (760) 872-1381 to have the hideously-painted likeness of the schoolâ€™s mascot removed, or, for a $25 donation, can select the coltâ€™s next resting place.

She was employed at the bank as a manager.
