Misc. Housekeeping: Now is a great time to update your mailing address, email addresses and phone numbers with the club, if you have moved within the past few years, please send me your current information, so I can update the roster.  The CDs that came out with the Red Rocks Concert tickets showed we have a lot of old and incorrect information. 

Club T-shirts!!
We have a new shipment of Club T-shirts!  If anyone needs a club t-shirt, please let me know, cost $35 each.  
In case you’ve forgotten what they look like:

We have ordered some “Parrotheads on the Rocks” Shirts for the September Buffett shows.  They are a Sea Foam Green, in unisex sizes.  You can pre-order one now and pay us through PayPal at ColoradoPHC@gmail.com. The shirts are $35 each, and if you pay through PayPal, please add $2 for the fee.  Please send me a note with the size(s) you want.  

$5 from each shirt sale (both club shirts and Red Rocks shirts) goes to “Vested Interest in K-9s, Inc.” This is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide bullet and stab-protective vests and other assistance to dogs of law enforcement and related agencies around the country.
