We will be hosting a SOUPER BOWL PARTY at Island Time Tavern on Sunday, February 3rd from 4:40pm until the big game is done. Please plan to bring your favorite SOUP (soup, stew or chili), appetizers or dessert to share. There will be drink specials and some fun and games. Feel free to wear your favorite team jersey or fan attire, even if they didn’t make it to the big game. Non-perishable foods and cash donations will be collected on the day of the event to benefit a local soup kitchen. Come out and Phlock with your Phriends!

Saturday, January 12th 10 am to noon. Well I just learned of an event that we have always participated in for many years and in fact we are their primary source of labor/volunteers. The Hoop Pole Creek clean up used to be in March but was moved to January a year or two ago. Somehow I did not get a notice (or even notice it was happening) until our Highway Pickup Big Bird Jean Jensen told me at the PHlocking. If after reading the information below, you think you can give a hand with this all important clean up, please email Jean at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Coastal Federation needs a number so they will have extra gloves and drinks and snacks available. Hope you can make it. For those that would like to lunch with the other Parrot Head Litter Picker Uppers, let Jean know so he knows if he needs to make reservations. Always a good time.

Help us protect coastal wildlife and habitats by cleaning up the Hope Pole Creek Natural Trail!.
Join the federation on Saturday, Jan. 12 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Hoop Pole Creek Nature Preserve in Atlantic Beach. Hoop Pole Creek is a coastal creek, salt marsh and maritime forest preserve that continues to be rich with oysters, fish and other wildlife. Volunteers will help to pick up trash and debris, as well as trim trees and bushes along the nature trail, and clean off the boardwalk.
This entire event will take place outdoors, so dress accordingly. Sturdy shoes for walking in wet areas are also recommended. Boots are appropriate if you choose to walk along the water’s edge. Trash bags, gloves and other cleanup materials will be provided. Anyone under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Lunch and refreshments will be provided for all volunteers after the cleanup.
