“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. This is accomplished by using the fun and challenging sport of golf. Funds raised by EIPHC will be designated for combat veterans and their families in Onslow and Carteret Counties. Visit their website at to learn more. Our new club t-shirts will be making their debut but won’t last long, so hurry up and buy one! Cindy New, Big Bird, has a July 5 birth date so come wish her a happy birthday as well! Let’s do this!

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.
