Hello my phriends! As I write, I am experiencing memories of our past storms because Hurricane Ian is all over the news. My memories are good and bad, happy and sad, but mostly thankful for the way everyone in our community, our family, friends, neighbors, businesses and charities worked together to reach out and help each other in so many wonderful ways toward restoration. My thoughts are also with those who are in Ian’s path and pray for their safety! Our club stands ready to send aid to help others that may be affected.
In the meantime, this too shall pass, and we will once again look forward to the many events we have planned to finish out our year. Be sure to check out our Newsletter and our calendar of events found on www.emeraldisleparrotheads.com and the Emerald Isle Parrot Head Facebook page. Stay safe all! See you soon! Phins up!

PARTY AT THE END OF TOURIST SEASON (ALTHOUGH WE LOVE THEM) ON THE BEACH TO THE LEFT OF THE PIER FACING THE OCEAN!
Michael Moyer continues as our Big Bird and is lining up all his help (weenie wrappers, set up and take down teams and raffle team etc.) This is the first weekend of beach driving so it easy to get there, hitch a ride, or walk from the Pier. Hotdogs will be available, just throw some money in the donation jar. We also ask everyone to bring a little something to share but remember it is HOT so plan snacks/sides accordingly. Also, bring your own beverage.There will be raffles, prizes, games and more. If you can contribute or secure any items for the raffle, please bring with you, or leave a note on our website www.emeraldisleparrotheads.com. This is the time of the year when we “take back our beach” as the Coast is Clear. Remember to be careful when driving on the beach as it will still be turtle hatching season and families enjoying the day. Proceeds from this event will go to Carteret County Humane Society. You can also bring dog and cat food or items listed below. They are always so grateful! See you there!
