PHantastic February PHlocking

What a great night despite the cold weather! Some us showed out hopeful for early Spring… but most of us were bundled up, waiting out winter.

Matt at Eclub provided some hearty vittles, while DJ Robbie was blasting some great tunes! Thanks to our hosts, Moh Traini and Rose Gerrell, Parrotheads raised $222 (how appropriate for the date) for the Do It For Drew foundation. We welcome the New Members that joined and are excited to see our club continue to grow!
