For those who haven’t already picked up your tickets from Karen Bell. Please get in touch with her at Belleek@me.com to arrange getting your tickets from her. Karen will not be available to hand out tickets at the gate, so please make arrangements to get your tickets if you haven’t already done so. The following people, please contact Karen for your tickets… she still has your tickets:
IMPORTANT – PLEASE READ!

- Tell your friends and family to join in on the fun, limited tickets remaining: www.rockies.com/margaritaville
Remember – The Rockies issued the tickets by T-Shirt size. So all those with the same sized t-shirt have seats together. Don’t trade the tickets until after you get your shirt at the game. We want everyone to sit with their own spouses and family, so we’ll have to figure out the seating when we get there.
Our friends and fellow Parrot Heads from the Northern Denver PHC will be joining us that night!
Karen has reserved a table for 10 at the Viewhouse at 2:00pm on Saturday before the game. It will be first come first serve. I’m sure everyone will be in and out.. so stop by and say hi!!

We have some awesome charities this year!
The Community Table (Food Bank) and My Fairy Dawg Mother (Dog Rescue)
As always, we will have an awesome silent auction and “Chinese raffle,” with all the proceeds being split between these 2 charities.
This is also a food drive.. so please bring canned goods; peanut butter and canned proteins; toiletries; and dog and cat food. All of the donated items will go to help the Community Table. For those of you unfamiliar with the Community Table, it is a non-profit organization that offers many services. These include emergency, low income senior, and other food assistance. They have an amazing facility where they not only provide food, they provide job placement assistance, housing assistance and many other services for low income families. One of my favorite programs there is called “Feeding the Future.” This awesome program provides a bag of food every Friday to the kids on the free or reduced lunch program at the local schools. This ensures the kids have food for the weekends.
My Fairy Dawg Mother is a no shelter dog rescue. It was founded in an effort to save abused and neglected dogs from across the United States and pair them with loving and stable Colorado families. They are a Colorado based non-profit dog rescue that advocates finding the perfect long term home for each dog that is brought under the rescue umbrella. Their foster program is constructed of a large group of Colorado families that have opened their homes to our rescue dogs. By temporarily housing a rescue dog in a functional home they erase the stresses that boarding facilities can induce. The integration of a rescue pup into an established pack promotes socialization and develops self confidence. In addition, the rescue pup receives individualized attention and love from their foster family.
We have some fantastic silent auction and raffle prizes this year!!!
We need your help! We are still looking for silent auction and raffle items! We have some great donations so far, but we still need a lot more! Please contact Karen Bell or Robin Reed to discuss, if you’d like to help us out.
There is limited parking around the area. You can park in the parking lot of the restaurant next door, also down at corner of 52nd and Marshall, behind Marshall Liquors. (DO NOT PARK IN THE MARSHALL LIQUOR STORE PARKING LOT) But go behind it and park in the lot for Someplace Else Brewery (6425 W 52nd Ave, #6, Arvada). It’s a 4 minute walk, but we will have a shuttle car between the 2 places if needed.

Note from the editor:
It was brought to my attention that we have “poor communication” in this club. Karen and I work hard on the newsletter and on the FaceBook posts for all the events and other club information. We coordinate all of the information so it is in both places. If you aren’t seeing the FaceBook posts, please scroll down on our Club’s group page, and you will see all kinds of information. As for the newsletters.. I do the best I can at getting all the information included. If there is additional information you would like to see included in the newsletter, please send an email and I will include it. If someone isn’t getting the newsletters, please have them contact me and I will make sure they are in the email list. If they still aren’t getting them, have them check the SPAM folder in their email to see if the newsletters are going in there.
Don’t forget… Long time Parrot Head, Steve Phillips is retiring in July. 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 ?? Please RSVP to Allison at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as you can, if you plan on going.
Dinner, beer, wine and non-alcoholic beverages will be served, so just bring yourselves!
Address: 9977 Raleigh Street, Westminster.
