Xmas Parade Float –We had our first planning meeting and know what we are building and have a start on what we need. If you would like to help with the building (you don’t have to be available every work session, and you don’t have to be here for the Parade on November 24th.) We have a number of people who signed up to help build at the last PHlocking but if you didn’t attend and want to be part of the process, just email Sue Stone at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will add you to the communication list (used to announce changes in the building schedule, or need for materials etc) We will be gathering at Stonesend at 9701 Ashley Place, EI on Wednesday afternoons from 1-4 and Sunday mornings from 10-1. We have a late start this year due to the storm so we will need to make the most of the building days. Wear painting clothes!
October 27th (Saturday) – 7 PM – Parrot Head fun at the Speedway. Due to the storm and the passing of Bobby Watson, there have been a few changes. We will not have access to the private suite but we are now planning on enjoying the races from the grand stands. There will be Parrot Heads there so look for us in the stands. This may be the last race of the season, so if you haven’t gone yet, this is your chance to enjoy the fun with your Parrot Head friends. Cost is $15 at the gate and kids are free.
October 28th (Sunday) 2 PM at the Emerald Club – Costume Party and Fundraiser in support of the Carteret County Humane Society. Tickets are $10 at the Door. Sponsored by Island Pet Veterinary Hospital, Black Dog Provisions, 4Everall, E-Club and of course the Parrot Heads. Food will be provided by Black Dog Provisions, Music by 4Everall, Pet Portraits, Raffle and Silent Auction. Carteret County Humane Society sustained major damage due to Hurricane Florence. Dress your pet and win a prize. Come support the county animal shelter with a night of Halloween fun! 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the Carteret Humane Society to help them rebuild. Parrot Heads will be running the raffle and silent auction. We need Parrot Heads willing to help and we also need items for the raffle, gift baskets, gift certificates etc. If you have a large value item suitable for a silent auction we can use that too. Please email Sue Stone at email@example.com or call 252-354-4434. Time is short and we need lots of help on this one.
October 30 ( Tuesday) – Plash PHlocking at the E-Club for Halloween. Know there is a costume contest so dress for success. Know there will be other details coming so listen to the Coconut Telegraph (Facebook, word of mouth and our website) for more information.
