On 6/20, the Summer Solstice, the Emerald Isle Parrot Head Club (EIPHC) joined forces with the Emerald Isle Turtle Protection Organization in support of the North Carolina Alzheimers Association’s Longest Day fund raiser.
Under the organization of EIPHC member, Susan Smith, who is also the state’s Alzheimers Ambassador, 29 Parrot Heads walked the EI beach from sunrise to sunset raising money and awareness for this devastating disease. Some participants raised their own sponsorships, while our club also pitched in $10 per member for their efforts!
EIPHC members comprised almost half the total walkers! Hopefully we can do it again next year.
