The Emerald Isle St. Patty’s Day Festival reminder

IMG_2586March 14th (Saturday)

Coordinators :Jason Holland & Ken Stone.

We will have a Riff Raff Raffle where we have up to 20 items (donations from Parrot Heads and local merchants) and folks buy tickets and put them in the basket of the item(s) they want to win. We are in need of 15-20 items with a value of $15 and up.  People buy tickets and put tickets in the basket of the item they want to win.  So there are lots of winners.  THIS IS WHERE WE REALLY NEED SOME HELP!!!!!  Items can be from merchants, if you have connections or are a frequent buyer or it can be something that you make with your Parrot Head skills…..but nothing can contain alcohol (so no baskets of wine etc.) Gift certificates work great as well.  The fundraiser raffle will benefit a fairly new organization Family Promise,that serves homeless families.  A group of churches in Morehead City rotate housing the families at night and serving them an evening meal and in the morning the families are transported to their day center where children are picked up for school and parent(s) work on finding jobs and shelter and working to resolve their homeless situations.  Come on out and help us, help this organization that is filling a vital need.

The sign up sheet to work a shift will be at the PHlocking or you can email Maggie Rauschenberg at to add your name to the list. We have all slots filled but want a list of alternates if something comes up and has to back out.

February (Valentine’s) Phlocking report

If you didn’t make it to our February Phlocking celebration of Valentine/Heart Day, you missed one heck of a party with about 150 attending! The Emerald Club favored us with a grand assortment of chicken wings from Eddie at Piggly Wiggly complemented by various sweets prepared by our very own Parrot Heads.  DJ Rob got us all on the dance floor with a variety of songs from the past to the present and dancing the Cupid Shuffle was a highlight!  Oh Yeah! And how about the “Crazy Hearts” game and our talented participants? The lucky winning pair, Lindsey and Clint, won chocolates of course and announced that they were recently married so we helped them celebrate!  Our 50/50 winner and favorite bartender, Matt, won $67. Since February represents National Heart Month, the American Heart Association was chosen as our charity and, after additional donations were made later, a contribution of $80 was made. So if you missed the fun this month, don’t worry, you can catch up at the next Phlocking on March 6!  Who knows what’s in store?

February Phlocking this Friday

Let’s celebrate the joy of having loved ones! In their honor, RED Day means you need to wear your favorite red and white (pink will work also). Cover your body from head to toe or just one item will do, but be ready to pay a price if you don’t have red or pink displayed and receive a reward if you do! Our DJ Rob will have a variety of tunes (sprinkled with love songs) to treat us. There will be a game for those of you who love a challenge and our usual 50/50 raffle. And of course, you can’t celebrate having a valentine(s) without something sweet on hand! So, to celebrate further we need a table/buffet full of cookies/sweets from your favorite recipe. For those of you who would like to contribute, please contact me (Jan) at , or just bring it to the event! The E Club will be serving wings to compliment! Bring your sweetheart, loved one, family or friend and celebrate with us! Xoxo!
