Hello and Happy Thursday!! Stay warm my phriends!!
Happy Thursday, Parrot Heads! Thanks to all who came out to the meeting last Saturday! We had a great turnout. We raised just over $600 for the Tennyson Center for Children. That money will help them with the Christmas party for the kids and will provide shampoo, soap, toothpaste and other necessities for the kids this year. Thank you all so much, and thanks to those who brought raffle items for us!
HAPPY THANKSGIVING COLORADO PARROT HEADS.
Since next Thursday is a holiday, there won’t be a newsletter. We want to wish all of you in our Parrot Head family a very Happy Thanksgiving!! We all have so much to give thanks for, and this group of wonderful Parrot Heads is one thing Pete and Robin are thankful for!

We still have plenty of t-shirts for our 25th Anniversary!!!

We have a wide variety of sizes, and both men’s and lady’s cut shirts (lady’s cut are only available in pink). The one shown below is a lady’s cut, with both front and back pictured.
The front has the original Parrot Head logo on it, and the back has a picture on it provided by Dixie LaHood. The pictures here don’t do it justice. They are awesome!! We’ll have them at all the meetings. If you can’t attend a meeting and would like one… please contact Robin or Pete to arrange getting your cool new club shirt! The cost is $30 each. (if you can’t make it to a meeting to 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.
We also have T-shirts left over from the Parrot Head 5280 Fest (Party with a Purpose) They are really nice! We have white or teal colors, mens cut or ladies v-neck cut. They will be for sale at all the meetings, or you can contact Robin or Pete to arrange getting one. We will have some for sale at the next meeting. They are on sale now for $20 each.

Jeff Dunham is coming to the 1ST BANK Center (Broomfield Events Center) on April 4.
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. (by replying to this email)
