Emerald Isle Club members get to know each other at the monthly social (PHlockings) gatherings and through volunteering with one of our club activities. Established in 2002, the EIPHC is a non-profit organization that assists locally to help better the community and environment. In 2015, the EIPHC raised over $17,500 in support of local charities and nonprofit organizations.
EIPHC is a proud member of the Parrot Heads in Paradise Inc. (PHIP), a national organization recognized by Jimmy Buffett. Since 1989, Parrot Head clubs have been helping their communities with the motto in mind to “Party with a Purpose”. This statement is more than just a motto, local clubs like the EIPHC, believe it and live it.
We Are Parrot Heads!
We are Parrot Heads because we are not afraid to be silly or act foolish, and we are not afraid of love. We are Parrot Heads because we like scantily clad members of our favorite sex, and playing in the sun with those same members. We like singing songs that say all of these things.
We are Parrot Heads because we believe the best things in life cannot be bought, and sharing the best things make them better. We believe in the innate goodness in all of us. We are Parrot Heads because we know shared joy is increased, and shared pain is lessened. We know a good friend has value beyond measure.
It just so happens, that Jimmy Buffett sings about all these things. So, we are not Parrot Heads because we are Jimmy Buffett fans, we are Jimmy Buffett fans because we are Parrot Heads! We are Parrot Heads because we love beaches, the ocean and our planet. We love having fun.
