President’s Notes September 2022

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 and the Emerald Isle Parrot Head Facebook page.  Stay safe all! See you soon! Phins up! Jan Hicks, Pres.

Sunday, September 18 – Coast is Clear Party 12:00 to 4:00 PM


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 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!

Paper towels, Dry Purina Puppy Chow, Puppy/kitten formula, Dishwashing liquid,         Dry Kitten Food, Heavy duty water hoses – 120 ft, Bleach, Scrub Brushes with handles,  Newspapers without inserts, Laundry detegent, Cat litter (non-scoopable),    Lysol or Febreeze spray, Dry Dog Food, Cat and/or dog toys


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!
