Wow, what an active month March has been! The accomplishments and acknowledgements of the EIPHC this month were profound! It started with our fabulous March Phlocking, followed by our Quarterly Board Meeting. Next, I spoke at the Emerald Isle Business Association’s luncheon, on behalf of the Parrot Heads, who were eager to hear of the work and contributions made by us. In the same week, Ken Stone, on behalf of the EIPHC, accepted a “Proclamation” from Mayor Eddie Barber, at the Emerald Isle Board of Commissioner’s Meeting, in recognition of our “Service, Volunteerism, and Fun.” Several Club Members attended to support Ken and show our gratitude to the Town. Later, it was time to head down to the Emerald Isle St. Patty’s Day Festival and join my Pheathered Phriends at the Parrot Head Booth. Wow, volunteers from our Club worked so hard all day and the raffle donations were awesome! Our efforts paid off! What a fun and beautiful day! Still not done…Carl and our Big Birds, Jimi and Moh, arranged to present a $2,000 check to the Town of Emerald Isle for the purchase of a much-needed defibrillator. Way to go Parrot Heads!!
Great things are happening at EIPHC. Our volunteers and Big Birds are matchless. We are so fortunate to have you. In fact, the Board is currently designing a “Checklist” form to assist in the management of an event. We are continuing our efforts make it easier for any of you to be involved in our event leadership, no matter if it’s your first or thirty-first!
Thanks again to all! Hope to see you at the April 6 Phlocking, followed by the April 7 Disc Golf Tournament, as we continue to “Party with a purpose.” Jan Hicks
