“Every Day is Once in a Lifetime!”
This new song written and performed by Mac McAnally, tenured member of Buffett’s Coral Reefer Band, is a real winner! What a great way to look at life. We’re all experiencing a time in which we expect one thing, but often get something different. Sometimes it’s hard to appreciate our current circumstances when it’s not at all what we envisioned. However, today only happens once in a lifetime, so why not make the best of it? We won’t have the opportunity ever again!
This thought comes to mind when our club events are carefully planned and only days later cancelled or postponed. We ask, when can we phlock? When can we play together? When can we work together? Although we don’t have the answers, these facts remain clear. We’re still here, we still have each other, and we’re still trying! Every day is a once in a lifetime experience and when we get that one day when the stars are aligned and it all goes as planned, it will be one “whale” of an experience. “Party with a Purpose” remains on our agenda! Hang in there!
Hope you all are doing well and looking after yourselves and others. Remember to Live every moment, Love beyond words, and Laugh every day until we meet again! Jan H., President
Hello Parrot Heads:
It is the extreme honor of the 2020 PHiP Board of Directors to announce the winners of the 2020 scholarships. We would like to thank our judges for their hard work and efforts in reading each and every application. The applicants had to answer three questions as well as submit a blind essay (Tell us about your leadership skills in your school or community. Tell us how you plan to continue to apply your leadership skills at the school you are planning to attend). We received many applications and these fine judges had some very tough decisions to make.
Full congratulations go out to all our applicants and the board wishes each and every one of you good luck with your continued education. It was a very close decision and each of the winners should be very proud of what they do.
The winners of the 2020 scholarships are:
Heather Erlemann, from Cary North Carolina (Parrot Heads Of North Carolina) is the winner of the first place award of $5000.
Laney Phillips from Orr’s Island Maine (PHC Of Maine) is the winner of the second place award of $3000.
Lauren DeFrance from Richmod, Texas (Galveston Bay Parrot Head Club) is the winner of the third place award of $2000.
Again, congratulations to the three winners and thank you to all that applied as well as our judges who took many hours out of their days to help in making this very tough decision.

Let’s practice what the Parrott Heads preach this month. We are going to Party with a Purpose on Friday June 5 at 7:00 pm! Let’s make Jimmy Buffet proud of us and our commitment to giving back to our community. Wear your favorite Parrott Head or shirt if you have one, so we are easily identifiable and meet us on the beach at the Bogue Inlet Pier for a Beach Sweep. The Parrott Heads are going to help clean up the beach while hanging out together. We will respect the Covid 19 Guidelines while we socialize because we’ll have plenty of room to spread out on the beach. Grab your mask, some gloves, a few friends, a chair or blanket and cooler of beer and let’s come together for the good of the community. We have missed everyone and hope you will join us at this unique Phlocking!
While we’re at it, stop by the E Club and purchase your beer for the beach from Matt. He’ll even give you free ice! We can show him some LOVE too! We also plan to debut the new 2020 Parrott Head T-shirts! Bring some extra cash, cause you’re going to love them!!
