Hello and Happy Thursday!
Hello Parrot Heads! It’s almost the end of another week.. and what a LONG week this has been! I don’t know about you, but I am more than ready for the weekend!!
Our Colorado Avalanche won their first round in the playoffs and are starting the second round against the Sharks… Go Avs!! .Our Nuggets kicked some Spurs butt the other night, and have another big game tonight. If the Nuggets win, they will be on to round 2. Go Nuggets!!
Thank you to ALL who showed up at the meeting last Saturday night, to make our raffle a huge success! We were able to raise $1100 for the Denver Zoo’s Emergency Conservation Fund to help care the more than 1800 abandoned Lesser Flamingo chicks! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!! I want to send a special thanks to Deb Krieger, Susan Eckman, Karen Bell, Camelot Caraker and Deb Anderson for bringing a BUNCH of the awesome raffle prizes. Thanks to everyone who brought raffle prizes, those who bought tickets, and to those who donated extra money. Our raffle was a huge success last week, and we couldn’t have done that without everyone’s help! Also, thanks to everyone for wearing your “flamingo colors”… that made the night even more awesome!! Parrot Heads.. YOU ROCK!!
Don’t forget, Friday night (that’s tomorrow) we are having our monthly gathering of “Margaritas around Denver.” Tomorrow night, we’ll be meeting at LaLoma in downtown Denver. (1801 Broadway Unit 116 – Denver) Our reservation is for 5:00. If you haven’t already done so, please RSVP to Karen Bell or to Robin Reed so we’ll have enough room at the table. Hope to see everyone there!
The Colorado Rockies are having “Margaritaville Night at the Rockies” again this year. Anyone who went last year can tell you how much fun this is.. so you won’t want to miss this one! Mark your calendars and join us as we “Escape to Coors Field” for a fun-filled, “beachy” day, featuring a pregame rooftop performance by a live tribute band! Each ticket purchased includes a Rockies Margaritaville-themed shirt. Contact Karen Bell or Robin Reed for details on how to join us or check out our FaceBook page for the link to the event and the link to pay for the tickets. Once you pay, please let us know your t-shirt size so we can place the order when we pay for the tickets.

Mark your calendars for a fun fundraiser for the DAWGS! On Saturday, June 8… the Colorado Parrot Head Club will be helping with a fundraiser for the My Fairy Dawg Mother, dog rescue. The event will be held at Someplace Else Brewery in Arvada (6425 W 52nd Ave #6, Arvada, CO 80002). There will be a new beer on tap, called “Dixie’s Drool” named after Dixie the Bloodhound. I am told no bloodhounds were harmed in making this new beer. There will be lots of raffle prizes, silent auction items, and a fun pint glass you can purchase to commemorate the event. Save the date and watch for more information to come!
Longtime Parrot Head, Steve Phillips is retiring soon. (Lucky guy!!) He and Allison have invited all of the Parrot Heads to his retirement party at their home in Westminster. The party will be on 19-July from 5:00 until ??
See your email newsletter for their full address.
I wanted to send a special shout out and thank you to Camelot Caraker. For those who don’t know, Camelot works at the Four Seasons hotel in Denver. The hotel has (literally) tons of bedding, towels, bath mats, etc. that they can’t use any more. It is all perfectly clean, but if anything is frayed or looks used in the least, the hotel can no longer use the items. Camelot has been donating the used bedding, towels, etc., to us, and we’ve been taking it all to pet rescues and to emergency veterinary clinics in the Denver Metro area. This last batch went to the Denver Dumb Friends league and they could not have been happier. All the donations are made in the name of the Colorado Parrot Head Club.
Sadly, Camelot is leaving our phlock.. and heading to Philadelphia. Let’s all wish her the best and Thank you, Camelot, for all the generous donations!!
It’s almost time for Party with a Purpose (a.k.a Parrot Head 5280 Fest)!!
Save the Date: Saturday, July 27, 2019
Contact Pete for your ticket this year… a hot pink wrist band!! This wrist band is your ticket to the party this year, and will be required to enter. 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! We have Mike Nash and his new Southern Drawl Band; and Stoney Gable!! You won’t want to miss this!! It will be phun philled day!!
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.
Stay tuned for more details!
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
I think that’s about it for this week.
