Hello Parrotheads.

The Colorado Parrothead Club has lost one of our own this week. We are deeply saddened to report the passing of long time member, Rob T.

Rob had been in and out of the hospital for months, battling the effects of COVID-19. Finally, his liver and kidneys shut down, and his body was tired, and had enough. Stacy has an enormous amount of medical bills now, so if you would like to help her out and make a donation to her, please use the following PayPal link:


If you’d like to send cards or letters, please send them to me at:

Stacy Timlin
% Robin Reed
7167 Dudley Drive
Arvada, CO 80004

We’ll get all the cards and letters to her. Thank you.

October Events

First Annual CPHC Car Show!!!

This is something we can still do this fall, and it’s outdoors, so we can socially distance ourselves.

I know a lot of you have cool cars and we’d LOVE to see them!! Pete will open up the North gate and we can park all the cars in his North lot. There will be plenty of room to walk around and see all the cars.

I am not going to name names, but we actually have a lot of members with really cool cars! So, get them running and get them over to Pete’s for our first annual charity car show!!!

When: Saturday October 17, 2020 – 10am
Where: President Pete’s yard, North side
Entrance Fee: Canned goods for the Community Table Food bank and/or items for the Tennyson Center Christmas Party for the kids (see below for what items they need).

Please call or text Pete to let him know if you can make it with your car, so we know how many to expect. If we fill up his yard, we can use the parking lot next door!

As with all of our events this year, please bring your own drinks and your own food, since we can’t share anything these days.

Other October Events

As you probably have all guessed, there is no Denver Halloween Parade this year.

There will also be no regular October Club Meeting. We’ll have the car show instead!!

Donations Needed

It’s that time of year again, when 2 of our charities really need our help. Even though we are not having regular meetings, we’d like to have a food drive for the Community Table Food Bank and a drive for the Christmas Party at the Tennyson Center for Children.

Details for Tennyson Center for Children: Every year, the Tennyson Center has a Christmas Party for the kids. They give the kids essential items. They need gloves/mittens, socks, blankets and cute little things to go with them, like candy or some small item. They also need personal hygiene items, like soaps and shampoos. Please bring these items to the car show!

If you can’t make it to the car show, please contact Pete, Robin or Karen and we can arrange getting the items from you. (Robin – ColoradoPHC@gmail.com; Pete – PeteGrosskreuz@yahoo.com; Karen Bell – belleek@me.com). Karen lives in the South part of the city, so for all of you down in that area, contact Karen to arrange getting your donations to her.

Details for Community Table: The food bank is running low and desperately needs donations. They need canned proteins and peanut butter, rice, canned veggies, spaghetti sauce and about any other type of non perishable food items that you can think of. Again, please contact Pete or Robin if you’d like to donate items so we can arrange getting them from you.

Since we haven’t had monthly charity events, let’s make these 2 charity events really great!

Club T-shirts!!

We are running low on club t-shirts for our 25th Anniversary. We have a few left in each size, but not a big assortment of colors any more. (Possible color options are: Pink, as shown below, Black, Butter Yellow, Caribbean Blue, Steel Gray, Periwinkle, Salmon and Sea Foam Green).

Please contact Robin or Pete to arrange getting your cool new club shirt! The cost is $30 each. (if you can’t pick one up, drop a check in the mail to us and please add $5 per shirt for shipping.)

The t-shirts are stored at Pete’s house, so give Pete a call if you want to stop by and pick up a shirt or 2, plus we will have them at all the club meetings.

Jeff Dunham is coming to the 1ST BANK Center (Broomfield Events Center).

The SHOW IS MOVED TO December 12, 2020!!
Several in our group are interested in going, so we checked into group tickets. They don’t really have a group ticket sales up there, and we were not able to get a large group of tickets, but we did manage to get a few. We have a very limited number, so we will sell them on a first come first serve basis. The cost is $75 each. Sorry we can’t accommodate everyone, but there are still tickets for sale, so if you’d like to go, and can’t fit into our limited number, please buy some tickets online. It will be a very fun night. “Jeffafa” is a SUPER funny!

Contact Robin if you’d like to buy tickets.

Fins up!

Parrot Head President, Pete!
