IMPORTANT ANNOUCEMENT-2021 MEMBERSHIP DUES

 

January is the time to renew your annual dues. All 2021
dues must be paid by January 31st.

It doesn’t matter what month you joined because our dues are only $10.00 per person and we do not pro-rate them. There are two ways to pay your dues as a result of Covid 19. Please use Method 1 or Method 2.

Method 1- Use our website to renew, emeraldisleparrotheads.com. Go to: Click here to Join or Renew picture (or click this link!) and follow the directions. You do not fill out a form to renew. There is a 61cent fee that you need to add to your $10.00 for each membership being renewed. This is the fee to PayPal. Also, you do not need to have a PayPal account. Any credit card can be used.

Method 2
Renew your membership through the mail. Send check to

Emerald Isle Parrot Heads
PO Box 4293
Emerald Isle, NC 28594-4293

Please remember that if dues are paid later than January 31st, you will have to rejoin the club and fill out the form again. Our data base is updated in February to reflect current paid memberships. Our club dues are lower than any other club.

After paying a small amount of each membership to the National Parrot Head Club, we use the rest to run projects to help the community.

Hopefully, we will be meeting face to face by next summer. Until then stay healthy!

President’s Notes, December 2020

“BIRDS OF A PHEATHER PHLOCK TOGETHER!” That’s what we do under normal (whatever that is) circumstances.  We share common interests for the island lifestyle, partying with a purpose, and working together to improve our surroundings. This past year has been difficult and frustrating! We canceled nearly all events and were forced to hold our monthly PHlockings virtually, which were few and far between!

But guess what?  WE’RE STILL HERE! Nothing could prove this any better than the 2020 Island Santa Bar Crawl and its huge success. We defied all odds and worked together as a PHlock to provide many wishes for Make-A-Wish, ENC and the wish kids of Carteret County! Our perseverance paid off!

So, I say “Bring it on 2021!”  We will remain hopeful and do what we can do, not what we can’t.  We’ll continue to search for what is meaningful and good and be involved in making our world a little better than the way we found it! And finally, when allowed to PHlock, and actually hug and see each other’s smiling faces, we’ll celebrate life and love with one ‘Helluva’ Party! Happy New Year ya’ll with your PHins up! Jan H. President

OVER $37,000 RAISED BY EIPHC 2020 ISLAND SANTA BAR CRAWL!

I am happy to announce that we will be contributing to Make-A-Wish, ENC, a  little over $37,000 to benefit wish kids of Carteret County.  I am sending a big hug and heartfelt thanks to all of you who helped make this event a huge success.  So many PHolks supported the auction with purchases, made donations, hosted private events and contributed lots of time and effort in many ways. I can’t thank you enough! I believe the hearts of everyone involved were touched when we all reconnected as a PHlock! There are very special kids that are going to be mighty happy as a result of our efforts.

Be on the lookout for additional pictures and announcements!  It’s awesome to have something great like this event to end the year.  Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all! Phins up! Jan H.,  President

President’s Notes November 2020

Here comes Santa Crawl, here comes Santa Crawl

Right down Santa Crawl Lane

Dinners and parties for Phamilies and Phriends

While Parrot Heads entertain.

 

This Christmas Cheer gives Wish Kids here

A chance for dreams to come true,

Donate your gift, be glad you did

Cause it all begins with YOU!

 Click here: Donation to Make-a-Wish (Island Santa Bar Crawl) | Emerald Isle Parrothead Club (emeraldisleparrotheads.com) or visit our website and click in the menu Donation to Make-A-Wish.

While the songwriting should be left to Jimmy, I hope my message is loud and clear. We are thankful to have several Parrot Heads hosting their own events with Phriends and Phamilies online and off to raise money for Make-A-Wish, ENC. However, if you are not already involved,  you too have the opportunity to make a tremendous difference in the lives of our Carteret County  Wish Kids by contributing as little as $5 or $10 to this worthy cause. Our club is over 350 strong.  Together we can make this 2020 Island Santa Bar Crawl the best yet!  Learn more about the Crawl held from December 4 through December 13,  by visiting our website at www.emeraldisleparrotheads.com.

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a joyful Happy New Year! May your days be filled with calm seas and picture-perfect sunsets as reminders of what a wonderful world this can be! Phins Up! Jan H.
