Hello and Happy Thursday!
Hello Parrot Heads! What a week this has been! Sunny and 80 degrees F, then snow, wind and 21 degrees F. Hopefully the winter weather will be over soon. I don’t know about you… but I’m ready for summer!
Mark your calendars for our next club meeting! April 20, 6pm at Hoppers. You won’t want to miss this one! Our charity this month is for baby flamingos! More than 1800 Lesser Flamingo chicks were abandoned during a drought in South Africa in January. The Denver Zoo is sending a couple of staff members down to Cape Town to help care for some of the rescued chicks. They are all being hand raised, and studied extensively. Lesser Flamingos are becoming increasingly threatened by habitat destruction. Our charity this month will go to the Denver Zoo specifically for this program to help care for the flamingo chicks. We’ll have lots of fun raffle items! Hope to see everyone there!
It’s almost time for Party with a Purpose!!
Save the Date: Saturday, July 27, 2019
Pete will be walking around selling hot pink arm bands. This is your ticket to the party this year. We have a great line-up in store so the tickets will be $50 this year. We have Thom Shepherd and Coley McCabe with their entire band; Mike Nash and his new band (formerly Southern Drawl); Stoney Gable and (hopefully) our very own Brain Wunderlich.
I know $50 is a lot more than prior years, but we have some top notch entertainment lined up for a full day of music! I’ve heard some concerns about the cost this year, but it’s really just giving up 1 Starbucks a week.
We’ve got some great donations this year for our silent auction, but as always, we can use all the donations we can get for the silent auction and raffle prizes at the event. Please contact Karen Bell or Robin Reed to discuss, if you’d like to help us out.
Long time members, Gary and Bonnie Dickinson have left us to hit the road and follow the sun. They are keeping a BLOG, so you can follow their fun adventures at: www.bbfreee.wordpress.com
Parrot Head Pres. Pete!
