Posts before phlockings – what will happen


Friday, November 5, 7:00 pm, Emerald Club
Let’s celebrate our favorite pets! Wear a picture of your most loved pet(s) pinned, taped, glued or stapled to your shirt, hat or pants! Dog and cat fur is welcomed too! You don’t have to own the pet, but you do have to love it! Maybe you’re its grandparent, aunt, uncle, or neighbor. Doesn’t matter, just have phun with it!
The 50/50 raffle will support Misplaced Mutts, a non-profit volunteer-based organization, dedicated to rescuing dogs and cats in shelters and less than ideal home situations. They are based out of our own Carteret County and operate through a network of foster homes. We would also like to ask for donations of new dog toys, new or clean used towels and beds, and cat and dog food. Any brand is appreciated, but mostly they use “4 Health Adult & Puppy” from Tractors Supply and “Purina One” or “Proplan” for cats. All donations will be delivered the next day!
So, doggonit, strut on out and have a purr-fectly good time while you paws with fellow Parrot Heads and admire their 4-legged friends. Also, a big “shout out” to Matt at the E-Club for providing free food and live music. Hope to see you there!


Wear your tropical best!  We’re celebrating the ‘soon to end” Summer and the return of our favorite trop rock artists, RICK LAMB AND THE PHIN ADDICTS!  This is going to be a great night featuring our infamous FROZEN T-SHIRT CONTEST,  charity 50/50 raffle, club t-shirt sales, free food and music that will make you ROCK like you’re partying in KEY WEST.  LIFE IS GOOD!!!  If you haven’t yet joined the Emerald Isle Parrot Head Club, be sure to visit our Membership table and sign up at the Phlocking.  It’ll cost you a whopping $10! See you there!

“FLOWER POWER” June 4 Phlocking, 7pm, E-Club

“Flower Power” promotes the idea of “peace and love” as a means of changing the world! “Parrot Heads” do too!  Express your “Flower Power” at our June Phlocking with “flowers in your hair, flowers everywhere!”  Pull out those tube tops, tye-dye shirts, and bright floral dresses! Deck out in head bands, scarves, and peace signs.  Matt will provide the phun with food, live music, and special drinks at the E-Club.  AND, to symbolize our “Flower Power,” all proceeds from the 50/50 raffle will be used to  cover expenses related to our newest community project! Sign up at the phlocking and work with James, Carol & Cris the following morning, June 5, at 10:00 on “Beautification Day.”  We’ll be cleaning up and planting flowers in the gardens of the tiny “Butterfly Park” located in front of the water tower at the poiice station on Emerald Isle. “Let’s Party Like it’s 1969!”


Remember these favorites: Madonna, Olivia Newton John, Elton John, Johnny Depp, Tom Petty, Cyndi Laupar and Michael Jackson? We’re going back to the 80’s with this Phlocking to celebrate this great decade! Wear your 80’s  best outfit.  Matt is going all out and providing an 80’s band so we can get down and boogie up. 

 Also, we will be kicking off the “Walk to End Alzheimer’s” Month, a big event for all Parrot Heads. Add bonus points with a splash of purple in your 80’s clothes to signify Alzheimer’s Month. Let’s once again “Party with a Purpose!” Thanks to Bonnie Forkey, our Big Bird for this event!

Proceeds from the 50/50 raffle are going to Fairways for Warriors, a 501(c)(3) organization whose mission statement is to support combat wounded warriors to help with their physical and emotional rehabilitation.
