St. Pat’s Festival Booth report

1936827_1156575854367256_7267365328745336695_nWith a beautiful day on tap, our Parrot Head booth at the Emerald Isle St. Patrick’s Day Festival was a huge success. Parrot Head volunteers were decked out in St. Pat’s garb as they handed out info, hawked Riff Raff Raffle tickets, took in new members, and generally had a rowdy time. Jimi Crampton and Ken Stone took turns in the Party-on the Parrot suit bringing business into the booth and playing and getting their pictures taken with little kids. We had 18 great gifts to raffle off that were donated by Parrot Heads and supporting local businesses which allowed us to take in donations of $1750 that was all given to charity, the E.I. Fire Dept. to go towards handicapped beach wheelchairs and Protectors of Homeless Pets/the Humane Society. Many thanks to all who helped out and those who contributed to the raffles, and welcome to new members and returning members!


Hoop Pole Creek Cleanup Report

We had 19 Parrot Heads and 2 Parakeets for the morning of March 5th to assist the Coastal Federation with their annual cleanup.  In fact we outnumbered the Federation’s turnout; but no worries, that’s exactly why we were there!  The area was made beautiful again with lots of trash and litter collected.

Some of the crew!

Afterwards, a bunch from the cleanup enjoyed lunch at The Beach Tavern in Atlantic Beach.  A good time was had by all!

A brand new amusement for our Parrot Head Club. Many of you have heard of Flat Stanley or something similar where an object travels to different places and people enjoy following his journey. In January, the Hicks and Stones were in St. Thomas and got to thinking/drinking and decided the Club needed a mascot. Continue reading Milo’s Meanderings – Parrot Date 2.16
