President’s Notes February 2020

I’m still asked questions about our club so here are some facts I’d like to share.

The Emerald Isle Parrot Head Club (EIPHC) was founded in 2002. We are a nonprofit social organization for people interested in Jimmy Buffett, Trop Rock music and a tropical spirit. Our purpose is to assist in community outreach programs and to provide members with a means of phun and diverse social interaction. We support many charities each year through our events and volunteer hours. Our club serves the Carteret and Onslow County areas and have members throughout the state.

We truly love and support the message of “Party with a Purpose!” There’s a lot of party and a lot of purpose! Our members gather for monthly phlockings where we enjoy music, food, games and participate in a fundraiser such as a 50/50 raffle to benefit designated charities in our area. Throughout the year many other events are held, some large and some small. There are things to do every month. We also volunteer to assist other organizations in the community. Our two main fundraisers each year are the Beach Bike Poker Run held in May and the Island Santa Bar Crawl held in December. These weekends are filled with over 300 participants raising money for kids associated with Semper Fi Fund Kids Camp and Make a Wish, Eastern North Carolina, respectively. Last year these two fundraisers alone brought well over $35,000.

Come join us and have yourself the time of your life while changing the lives of others! As always, visit our website at emeraldisleparrotheads.com to learn more! I’ll see you at the March 6 Phlocking where we’ll “Party with a Purpose!” Jan Hicks, President

PHLUFF UP THE PHLOCK 2020

The Phluffing was a phun time for visiting and working together as we planned 2020!  A big “Thank You” to our 2019 Board and Committee members for their countless hours of service and a warm “Welcome” to our newly elected 2020 Board and Committee members for their promise of a successful new year!  Here’s a special “Thank You” to all of our volunteers in all capacities for the time and effort you will give to make this year another great year to remember as we “Party with a Purpose!”

Membership – It is Time to pay your annual dues

 

January is time to renew your annual dues. All 2020 dues must be paid by January 31st.  It doesn’t matter what month you joined because our dues are only $10.00 per person and we do not pro-rate them.  There are three ways to pay your dues. We prefer that you use Method 1 or 2 because using Method 3 gets hectic at a PHlocking to collect dues.  Also using these methods are convenient if you are not attending the January Phlocking.

Method 1 – Use our website to renew, emeraldisleparrotheads.com. Use the Click here to Join or Renew picture (or click this link!) and follow the directions. You do not fill out a form to renew. There is a 61 cent fee that you need to add to your $10.00 for each   membership being renewed. This is the fee to PayPal. Also, you do not need to have a PayPal account. Any credit card can be used.

Method 2- Renew your membership through the mail. Send check to

Emerald Isle Parrot Heads
PO Box 4293
Emerald Isle, NC 28594-4293

Method 3 – Pay your dues at the January PHlocking.

 

All current members who do not renew at this time,  will have their information removed from our database. Then rejoining will require you to complete a registration form through our website.
