Flip flop season is upon us and soon, many Parrotheads will be sporting
theirs proudly. There is another group of folks who need to wear flip flops as well–our hospitalized injured or ill troops deployed overseas or back here in the states. PHCOEM has decided that we are the PERFECT group for organizing a flip flop drive for Operation Troop Support, based out of Danvers, MA. Our own Diane Xenelis has generously offered to deliver or ship our contribution so that our troops can receive new, unused flip flops to wear while recuperating. During our First Thirstday meetings in April and May, please show your support by donating a pair (or two or three…) of unused flip flops suitable for men and/or women soldiers. Club Ambassadors will collect the flip flops at both meetings and we will arrange for them to be delivered or shipped. Let’s show the troops how proud we are of their efforts by providing them with a sizable donation of much-needed flip flops to aid in their recovery! I want to thank all of you, in advance, for your Parrothead generosity.
