President’s Notes April 2019

Yep, warm days are here, and we are all just itching to party! One great place to start is at our 16th Annual Beach Bike Poker Run! Whether it’s your first or your sixteenth ride, it’s an experience that offers wonderful memories and great stories that last forever! It’s a time when we all unite in one gigantic phlock and enjoy the day as only Parrot Heads can do. Even if you’re not a parrot head, come hang out and party with us; or even better, join us as a parrot head member online or at our May 3 Phlocking!

Registration for EIPHC Poker Run is online at currently but will expire on May 4. If you register online, you save $5 per person. You can register live on May 18, 2019, day of event for $25.00.

While you are at it, don’t forget to decorate your bike and yourself in costume to win CASH PRIZES. The theme is “Daydreamin” so you can be anything you want! I’ve decided to become the image I love, a mermaid! Also, there are opportunities to win a 50/50 raffle, a “Scratch Off Board” Raffle, a silent auction bid and the purchase of a Mulligan card to aid your final poker hand and win cash! Be sure to come bringing cash, check, or credit card to participate in these fun and lively activities. Remember that what you spend at this event is going to the Semper Fi Fund! We are proud to sponsor them again this year to benefit local kids of wounded warriors to attend an outdoor kid’s camp and be matched with a high school mentor to assist them throughout the year! I love these kids!

Any other questions you have can be answered on our website at ! From your friendly President a/k/a Mermaid,  Jan H.
