President’s Notes February 2019

Good day my fellow Parrot Heads! February has gone by fast with its Super Bowl celebrations and its sweet hugs and kisses on St. Valentine’s Day. Now, get ready for a cheery “Top of the Morning!” as we celebrate the Emerald Isle St. Patty’s Day Festival on Saturday, March 16. Come support our volunteers working at the EIPHC booth onsite. We are proudly sponsoring as our charity Family Promise of Carteret County whose mission is to assist the homeless.
We’re rolling out more events this Spring for your enjoyment! Be sure to Save the Date for our infamous EIPHC Beach Bike Poker Run on May 18, 2019. Personally, this is one of my favorites because it involves a bunch of Fruitcakes like me enjoying a chaotic but somehow organized poker run on bicycles to participating establishments on the Island! All profits will be donated to Semper Fi Fund Kids Camp for local Onslow and Carteret County children of wounded warriors. The families of these kids are so grateful for our love and support every year.
In addition, don’t miss our “Fins Up” Party Weekend. The Beer & Baseball Bus Tour begins at 12 noon on June 1. On June 2, the Emerald Club is hosting a “Fins Up” Party with live music from Rick Lamb and the Phin-Addicts. I can’t believe these guys are performing for us at the Wood Ducks game on Saturday and then again Sunday afternoon at the E-Club. They are an award-winning, popular and loved band on the Trop Rock Circuit and played inside and outside the States! These are Parrot Head party music veterans and have promised us a great show at both events! So, spread your wings and come fly with us! NOTE: Registration for the Beer & Ballgame Adventure is available on-line until March 10.
Details of these and more events can be found on our website at Make sure you SAVE THESE DATES! I can’t wait to “Party with a Purpose,” can you? Jan Hicks
