Spring has Sprung Phlocking -March 2, 2018

The weather on the Island has been fantastic and most of us are hoping that Old Man Winter has packed his bag and moved on for another year. Come out to the Emerald Club on Friday, March 2nd from 7:00-9:00 pm and help us channel SPRING!! Matt will have cold beverages and FREE food. There will be some fun Spring themed games to help us “get our Spring On” and hopefully Mother Nature will get the message so we can spend some time outside. We will be fundraising for Warrior Surf Foundation of EI, and Rob will be on site to tell us about all the GREAT things that the organization does for our veterans. This is also a good opportunity to be sure that you are signed up for our next big event the ST PATRICK’S DAY BOOTH at the Emerald Isle St. Patrick’s Day Festival. We are still accepting raffle donations and we need volunteers to work the booth on March 17th. The sign up sheet will be at the membership table or you can contact Jimi Crampton or Moh Traini. We look forward to a big turnout on March 2nd as we celebrate the end of Winter.
