A note from Sunshine:
I would like to thank those who came out yesterday to help with the Alzheimer’s Walk at Quinsigamond Community College. It was a beautiful day and we all had fun. I’m so glad that I am lucky to know so many wonderful parrot heads. Although we had a smaller crowd of volunteers this year we were still able to work both the flower garden and a water station along the route. Thanks to Sheryl, Angela and Deb for helping to collect all the signs once the walk was done – it was like you guys walked the route yourselves.
PHCoEM Members (donating time & money): Deb Beauregard, Sheryl Davis & Cainen, parakeet – Sheryl’s grandson, Angela Gallant, Judy Holewa, Terri Weissenberg ($$)
WMPHC Members (Walkers): Barbara & Scott Simpson
Duel Club (Time & Money): Karen & Richard Feldeisen
Hope to see more happy faces next year.
Here’s the information for several upcoming events at which PHCOEM will be volunteering in next few months. PLEASE consider volunteering to help out a few of these great causes and spend some quality time with your fellow Parrotheads!

Hey Phellow Phlockers,
Hard to believe we are almost at the halph way mark of 2013 Membership but it’s not too late to submit your dues that you may have overlooked with all the goings on… It has been a busy year planning phor this year’s convention that our club hosted. Lots of hard work and energy went into making that a great success for ourselves and everyone who attended including the Holiday Inn personnel and we have next year’s convention close by in Plymouth to look phorward to.
We had a phun Happy Holiday Hangover Party phollowed by our Party for the Hardy where members donated nips for our convention prizes with an amazing turn out which we were so thankful phor. We had our Annual Tubing (Nashoba), canoeing (CRWA) and Shark sightings while walking phor deserving causes (Autism, MS and more).We have phlipped burgers, passed sandwiches and now have even served beer at events phor SOMA as well as hosting their dance phor the kids to dance the night away.
We have had a busy Spring in Boston with members phlocking to Cheer’s, pre partying at Dick’s Last Resort before the Boston Strong Concert and again at The Paradise for The One Fund and of course our phabulous phlocked up phamily reunion at GW when Jimmy came to town phor 3 separate events… Is there any wonder why he enjoys our area so much when this phlocked up phamily rallies together? We are amazing phriends who Party for a Purpose while helping others and it’s so good for your soul… (sigh)
We still have much to do with Pan Mass right around the corner along with camping, Cape bound Senior games, packing for MOTM, tree decorating, jaunting along with the usual Thirstdays, acknowledging new PHARTS and so much more being planned along the way… keep checking that PHCOEM calendar !!!
Please take a moment to renew your membership if you haven’t yet and don’t forget we do have PayPal on our website to make doing so very convenient. We are always looking phorward to who are next new members will be and hope you can encourage others to join our phlocked up phamily!
We will be having our Annual Membership Pool Party next month and I hope to see you to give all paid members their new credentials and PHIPS card !!! ;)
PLEASE SAVE THE DATE:
“Annual Membership Pool Party “
Hosted by Jean and John Duffill
Sunday, August 11th at 1 pm
Are you Fanautical? I am !!
Fanautical is an awesome store at Patriot’s Place in Foxboro. They were a mini-mart vendor at the Convention. Last weekend, they hosted a street party on the mall at Patriot’s Place. We had Bob Peck and Billy Hardy playing some awesome music for us. Allie hosted a limbo contest. Deb and Elena decorated the tent and the people
But June did one other thing for us! She is donating 15% of all her proceeds from last weekend to us to use for Special Olympics. She has extended this GENEROUS offer until 7/12. If you go online www.befanautical.com and mention PHCOEM or SOMA in the comments section on checkout, she will include your order.
