Coast Is Clear is Happening!!!

ATTENTION Parrot Heads time to Party for a Purpose…

WHO: Michael Moyer and Mendy Barrow never fail to host a fun filled afternoon beach party. Who’s bringing the Bullhorn?!?

WHAT: Raffles, hot dogs, music, sun and fun! Proceeds/ donations benefit the Humane Society of Carteret County (which is in Newport, NC and got hit hard by Florence). Poor animals have been misplaced too!

WHEN: Join us October 7th for our annual Coast is Clear Under the Pier Party. Good-bye tourists, bring on calm Fall.

WHERE: The Beach bash is held at the Cedar St access, just east of the pier. Pack light, as it is a bit of a hike from the public pier parking. Try to hook up with island neighbors or members with beach driving permits. Email me for more info:

***TIME: The time is floating 12-4ish. With the drawing for raffle prizes starting at 3. Fishin’ for a Cure will be hosting their Pokerfish Tournament RIGHT BESIDE the party that morning! (2018 Proceeds/ donations will be directed into our community for Hurricane relief/aid) Registration (no fee) is at 10 am and fishing begins at 11, until 1.

Yayyy! Two Parties for Two Purposes! 


Lone Palm Foundation – Hurricane Florence

Good morning Parrot Heads,

Florence has created flooding over significant portions of North Carolina and South Carolina.

This morning we were informed of Parrot Head’s evacuating due to flooding in NC.
Many of our club members are going to need our assistance in the coming days.  To donate to the Parrot Head Emergency PHUND or for further information and applications visit:  Lone Palm Foundation – Parrot Heads helping Parrot Heads

Our main focus of providing financial assistance to Parrot Heads in times of natural disaster couldn’t be furthered without the help of the Parrot Head nation, or world.  In 2017 we banded together as a phlock to assist in the clean up and recovery of Harvey, Irma and Maria through volunteerism, as well as financial and emotional assistance. Kristin McFadden’s ingenious blue t-shirt best describes 2017: “Parrot Head Strong – We Will Rebuild”.  The foundation would like to thank everyone who donated on behalf of our efforts in 2017

When a hurricane hits land fall, a tornado touches down or flooding occurs and any of our current PHIP, Inc. PARROT HEADS are victims of a natural disaster, information and applications for the Parrot Head Emergency PHUND are available on the Parrot Head Emergency Phund Guidelines on the Lone Palm Foundation website.

Finally, don’t forget to mark your calendars for Saturday, November 3rd and attend the Lone Palm Foundation LIVE Auction immediately following the PHIP, Inc.. general meeting at the Casa Marina in Key West, FL..  We will have autographed memorabilia from Mr. Buffett and much more.. Get there early to reserve your bidding number! As always, proceeds will benefit the Parrot Head Emergency PHUND.
