2 Important Events

Next up in July!!!! If you enjoyed the outing to the Kinston Wood Ducks or if you missed the event, we have another chance to party with your fellow Parrot Heads.
Friday, July 12th we have arranged another Baseball outing,( this time a little closer to home) with the Morehead City Marlins playing the Wilson Tobs at the Big Rock Stadium in Morehead City. Not only is it close to home, but they will donate $3 for each ticket sold to Parrot Heads to Broad St. Clinic, a local organization serving uninsured or underinsured individuals with health care needs.
But wait, there is more! The team has agreed to let us use their team bus to and from the game, so we don’t have to worry about driving! The cost for a bus ride and all you can eat hamburgers, hotdogs, fries, popcorn, chips, cracker jacks and soft drinks and the ticket to the game is only $25. If you want to just meet us there (no ride) it is $15 per ticket and includes the all you can eat fun. They have event tents and tables and chairs so you can go back and forth between the game and the tent. They have beer specials, games, prizes and more. Our Parrot Head costume will be tagging along and rumor has it, may mix it up with the Marlin mascot. The bus would leave from the Island at 5:15 pm and return before 11 pm. Bring out your favorite Parrot Head outfit to wear, the staff will have on Hawaiian shirts to recognize the Parrot Heads. We are working on a sign up link through our website where you can pay (should be up next week on the website) or you can pay at the July 5th PHlocking. If the game is rained out, we will reschedule and your tickets are good for any home game.

Longest Day Walk for Alzheimers (Sea Turtle Crawl) Saturday, June 15th. Below is the walking schedule as of Wednesday. We could use more walkers representing the Parrot Heads. Our Club will pay $10 for each walker who is a Parrot Head. How simple a fundraiser is that? If you can spare an hour this Saturday, pick out a shift and location and let Kaye Jones know immediately! To sign up to walk, contact Kaye Jones, at 540-226-6673 or email her at rivarathoo79@gmail.com.

Make sure you get counted as a Parrot Head so the Club will donate $10, you must register on the Emerald Isle Parrot Head Club team page (our Club is an overall team under the Emerald Isle Sea Turtle Crawl) Follow this link to the site, http://act.alz.org/goto/EIPHC – register and/or donate if you are able.
When you open this page, you will have two options.
1. If you want to donate and not walk, you can choose the option to the left. Fundraising progress, donate.

2. If you want to walk and donate, then register (and donate), go to the right and choose join my team. (you still must contact Kay Jones to get scheduled to walk). When you register to join the team and walk, you will have the opportunity to purchase an Alzheimer’s Association Longest Day t-shirt for $5 or a performance t-shirt for $10. There is no registration fee. You will be asked if you have participated before and to put in your log in and password. If you don’t remember (like most of us) put in your email and they will mail you a password and you can reset the password. If you reply no, you need to put in your information. When you register we want to identify who is fundraising for this event on behalf of the EIPHC and we would like you to register your last name in this way: Stone-Parrot Head. Putting the Parrot Head after your name will identify you as a Parrot Head for the Club donation.

3. If you are interested in setting up your own team so you can send info out to friends and relatives, there are a few steps and you can contact Susan Smith at susan.seadreams@gmail.com for a little help.

 

2019 PHiP Scholarship Winners Announced

 

Hello Parrot Heads:

It is the extreme honor of the 2019 PHiP Board of Directors to announce the winners of the 2019 scholarships. We would like to thank our judges for their hard work and efforts in reading each and every application. The applicants had to answer three questions as well as submit a blind essay (The lessons we take from obstacles we encounter can be fundamental to later success.  Recount a time when you faced a challenge, setback, or failure.  How did it affect you, and what did you learn from the experience?).  Wee received many applications and these fine judges had some very tough decisions to make.

Full congratulations go out to all our applicants and the board wishes each and every one of you good luck with your continued education. It was a very close decision and each of the winners should be very proud of what they do.

The winners of the 2019 scholarships are:

Zachary Erlemann, from Cary North Carolina (Parrot Heads Of North Carolina) is the winner of the first place award of $5000.

Samuel Kwatkosky from Ocala Florida (Ocala Parrothead Club) is the winner of the second place award of $3000.

Anna Lee Twigg from Gambrills Maryland (Annapolis Parrot Head Club) is the winner of the third place award of $2000.

Again, congratulations to the three winners and thank you to all that applied as well as our judges who took many hours out of their days to help in making this very tough decision.

David Cohen,
Secretary, Parrot Heads in Paradise Inc,
2012-2019 Scholarship Chair
2013-2019 Scholarship Raffle Chair
2017-19 Mini Mart Chair

 

 

PHiP’s Meeting of the Minds Raffle Baskets

W O W !!!!!
MOTM 2019 is going to find the parrotheads, in attendance  B-U-S-Y!! The musical lineups for the annual phlocking is phantastic.   We hope you’ve enjoyed all of the phestivities that the summer has offered –  but have saved energy for the super, fantastic lineup at MOTM.

1)  music every day, all day at the Casa
2)  great shopping at the mini mart
3)  great variety of gift baskets for a great basket raffle

Commercial Break
Speaking of baskets for the basket raffle, we hope that you’ve had the chance to talk with your committee members, club members, people on the street, and anybody that will listen to you, about donating a basket to the MOTM basket raffle.  In past years, we have had such a great & wide variety of baskets available for people to purchase raffle tickets for & are sure that this year will be no different.   The basket that your club donates allows you to brag about your club, state, area & your members – so why not let the rest of the phlock see what you are so proud of. There will be shipping information in our next update.

And now back to our “regular programming”

As you’ve noticed from the previous e-mails from Andrew, this year there will be an increase in the amount of music at the Casa & times of operations of the mini mart, which will also mean an increase in the time to shop, enjoy the venue & shop some more.  That being said,  we find that the Gift Basket Raffle table will be in need of a few more volunteer ticket sellers to better serve the needs of our wonderful MOTM attendees.  As in the past we will be offering flexibility on shifts, ability to sell tickets during registration, selling tickets on The Casa grounds (which will allow you to enjoy the music, the great Florida weather and the many other activities including the blood drive & group pictures); heck you may even find other volunteer activities that are of interest to you – – you just never know.  If you have the time to help, we have a place for you.

If you have any questions, please contact us!

President’s Notes May 2019

“IF WE COULDN’T LAUGH, WE WOULD ALL GO INSANE!” So true from every perspective and especially at our 16th Annual Beach Bike Poker Run. We laughed and even cackled, yet some of us still went insane. What a great day of making history! We’re donating $20,000 to Semper Fi Fund Kids Camp, bringing the total funding from EIPHC since 2014 to $67,050 to help change the lives of military children.

This is a huge event and I love watching it unfold every year. I’m so excited that it’s hard to reign in everything I want to share with you! Let’s start by throwing out a few facts you may not know. The day started with a clean-up crew at the E-Club at 7 a.m., giving everything outside a thorough cleaning from top to bottom, arranging furniture, posting signs and much more! The day progressed with folks selling t-shirts, registering our guests, preparing and selling raffle tickets, judging bikes, gathering and selecting winning poker hands, and assisting with the silent auction and door prizes. Card sharks were everywhere greeting the players, monitoring the poker cards and making sure folks had a good time. Also, behind the scenes and well before the event date, volunteers were generating donations, making deliveries, running errands, sorting and packaging silent auction items, making copies, designing and putting out signs, and lots more! While this is not an all-inclusive list, it should give you an idea of why I am so proud to be a part of this A+ team of over 65 volunteers! We couldn’t make this event a reality without their huge commitment and active contribution!

Bear with me just a little longer. Our surrounding community also stepped up to the plate and supported us and our cause in every way possible with 8 establishments participating in the run, 21 businesses graciously serving as corporate sponsors, and 48 local business and individuals donating cash, door prizes, and silent auction items! Our phlock is fortunate to be located among such a caring family of businesses and individuals in our area. They make us look good!

And finally, I want to thank all of you who showed up for the event, brought your bicycle, spent your money, shared your smile and experienced a good time with new and old friends during your ride! I hope each one of you will join us again next year where we can start this madness all over again! Hope to see you soon at our next event! Take care and continue to “Party with a Purpose!” Jan Hicks

BEACH BICYCLE POKER RUN A HUGE SUCCESS!

WOW – $20,000 RAISED IN THE 16TH ANNUAL BEACH BICYCLE POKER RUN.  Yes, that is right, we topped last year’s total by $5000.  Every year, the event has been more successful thanks to dedicated Parrot Heads who plan, scheme and energize the PHlock and the community to raise fun/funds and Party with a Purpose.  A new highest ever total of riders, 311 crazy people having fun and spending money for a great cause.  All of the money raised goes to Semper Fi Fund to send children of wounded Marines and sailors to summer camp for a week, along with a high school student/mentor who will work with that child for a year.  These funds are used for local children only and we have been so pleased with the feedback we get from Semper Fi, we know the funds we raise make a huge difference!  Check out our newsletter next month for more details, and pictures (we hope to get some up on Facebook and on the website in the next few weeks.) A huge flap of the wings go out to our big bird James Hicks and the committee who made this happen.  Our card sharks worked hard and this could not happen with out them.  Hope  you all had fun!
