If you haven't done it, it's time to pay your 2019 dues! Please download the Membership Form from the website, located HERE, fill it out and bring it along with you to pay your dues at the next meeting. If you can't make the meetings, just mail it in.
Some of our members may be unaware, but the money earned by our raffle for prizes we have at each meeting goes to offset the cost of the musicians as well as to help pay for our charities. All of our prizes are donated by our own generous members, so if you come across an item suitable for the raffle while out shopping please consider buying it and bringing it to the next meeting to give to the Prez or any of our Board Members. It does not necessarily have to be tropical or even expensive, every item helps. And THANK YOU to those who have given prizes, it is deeply appreciated!
We would really hate to discontinue having live music at our meetings, but if we don't generate the money from the sale of raffle tickets, we can't pay the bands.
Oh, and at the meetings, please consider buying plenty of raffle tickets. It's not necessarily about winning, it's really about helping out a worthy cause. And if you win and don't need the prize, give it back to the Club to be raffled off again! Remember, every Parrot Head club's mission is to participate in activities that are charitable, educational and that promote the general welfare of the community while having fun, otherwise known as "Party With A Purpose!"

Great Strides – the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s largest national fundraising event has supported the Foundation’s mission to cure cystic fibrosis and raise awareness for this rare, genetic, life-shortening disease that makes it difficult to breathe and shortens lives.
Great Strides provides a fantastic opportunity for family, friends, students, and colleagues to come together and make a difference in the lives of people with CF.
Registration is free, but walkers are encouraged to raise funds. Your support will help accelerate innovative research and drug development, as well as advance care and advocacy.

March 30, 2019 - Bowl for Kids' Sake - Petro Bowl
We really had fun showing off our (lack of) bowling skills last year, so we plan to have teams entered again this year. Registration is now open and you can sign up on their website located HERE. The cost is $30 per person to bowl for 1 hour. If you do not care to bowl but would like to participate in some way, you are more than welcome to sponsor a bowler or just come join us and cheer on your favorite bowlers. Last year we had lots of Parrot Heads show up for moral support which was pretty neat and considerately helped improve our games! The pitchers of beer they generously donated didn't hurt either.
