President’s Notes, August 2022

Who is Jane Slagsvol? She’s the wife of Jimmy Buffett! She recently celebrated her 45th anniversary of marriage to him. The idea of living with Jimmy through his early years until now seems impossible. However, like many marriages, they survived the hard times, stayed together, and now enjoy “the good life!” Jane supported Jimmy throughout his career by her encouragement, support, and attendance at nearly every event. It is said that Jimmy wrote the song “Come Monday” for her while he was stuck in a motel on tour and lonely! It is great to know that the love and respect they share for each other is real. Congratulations to them both! Happy Anniversary!

We have a lot to talk about in the next few months. Labor Day weekend is now and comes loaded with music, Coast is Clear Party is about here, the “Tu-tus for Ta-tas” Walk is coming up soon, and our annual Island Santa Bar Crawl fundraiser is right around the corner. That means you need to get on our website at and The Emerald Isle Parrot Head Club Facebook page and check the dates for these fabulous events and then SHOW UP! You don’t want to miss the PHUN stuff! We hope to see you at our next event. They are all open to the public so if you are not yet a Parrot Head, you are invited to attend. As always, you can join our club at the monthly phlockings or online at our website! PHINS UP YA’ll! Jan Hicks, Pres.


WE KNOW IT’S LABOR DAY WEEKEND, but we’ve added our own version of celebrating with beer and cheer for all the workers among us! Let’s rock out with our favorite trop rockers, RICKY LAMM & THE PHIN ADDICTS ! Wear your favorite worker’s gear, i.e., hard hat, boots, nurse or doctor shirts, baseball shirts, farmer’s overalls, be creative! You may even win the 50/50 raffle. Profits will be donated to Carteret County Community Theatre which serves our county with tribute bands, plays and a roster of summer camps for local children. Cheers ya’ll!
