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



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!
