Hello Phellow PHCOEM Phlockers,
Yes it is that time again, where we announce our latest and greatest Parrot Head All Round Town award. We actually have a few to announce at this time.
The first recipients of this prestigious accolade are Elena and Bob Pouliot.
They were nominated as the fall winners and they have continued to prove to all of us what and why being a parrothead is so important to making this round ball we live in and on a better place. They put together our awesome bus trip to Mohegan Sun and helped run the HMEA Independence Walk in Franklin. Not to mention the fact, they are also inductees to the Special Olympics Hall of Fame. They were voted on and announced at our convention this year in Mansfield. The Pouliots have been very active in and with Special Olympics and at most of the events with their son Bobby Jr. and the rest of the family helping in one capacity or another.
Elena and Bob could also be seen running around at the convention doing errands and getting the extra little things done that make them truly Parrot Heads All Round Town. The Pouliots can be seen attending the Thirsty Thursdays down at the Sandbar usually. Sometimes they take the trip to other meeting places. So wherever or whenever you see them next give them a big high pheather phive and tell them thanks for making our club better with Parrot Heads All Round Town like them in it! Thank you Elena and Bob!
Our next PHART to announce is Mike Crowley.
This guy has been through alot health wise in the recent years but to no avail Mike still cruises along! He is one of the Cape ambassadors and can be seen working the grill at the Special Olympics events. Affectionately known to some of us as Gilligan, he brings smiles wherever he goes. Yes, even at the club camping trips, Mike can be seen crawling into his tiny tent. His quiet demeanor, sense of humor, even keel attitude has helped the club sail through many events. Mike helped a great deal, as many did, with the convention set up the day before. He helped stuff bags, bring in raffle gifts, lug prizes across to the rooms and many other gopher jobs we needed done to make the event successful.
He can be seen going from the Cape to many club events! Yes across the bridge! So please look for Mike or Gilligan at the next event and give him a shout out for being the latest PHART! He truly is a Parrot Head All Round Town. Thank you for all your contributions to this great phamily and club!
Just wanted to send out one more reminder of all the great volunteer opportunities this weekend.
First up Saturday May 4th…
We will once again be cooking lunch for the athletes and volunteers at the Special Olympics Brockton games. Please meet the crew at Brockton High School at 9am. Also on Saturday there are a group of Phriends walking in the MS Walk in Cohasset. If you are unable to make it Brockton consider joining Team T for the walk. Either way we’ll all be meeting up at the Red Parrot in Hull for some fun, good food and music provided by our own phriends the Cabana Boys. The Red Parrot event is a fundraiser for Team T so expect some awesome raffles!

Thank you for being a part of this club, for giving your time, talent, and treasure to enrich the lives of others, and for being a phriend. We are so blessed with love and luck to be able to share in the phriendships we’ve built and those we have yet to build.
Thank you for making a difference. Thank you for caring. Thank you for volunteering. Thank you Phriends.
May the coming year bring you new opportunities to help others, and may you resolve to help. In so doing, you make your life truly rewarding.

Hello phellow phlockers I am happy to announce the newest members of our PHCOEM PHART phamily! The McCarthy’s of Walpole.
Congratulations to Liz , Leo, PJ and Paul for their latest and greatest accomplishment! This has been their most active club year in a while and they worked hard through the spring and summer attending all but a few club events. They were handing out water and making lunches at the special Olympic events, found unloading trucks in Franklin at a fun run at EMC, camping down the Cape at Ellis Haven. Liz even won chicken breasts at the club meat raffle!! The club has also enjoyed a few after parties at their home in Walpole. The Pan Mass after party was again a big hit; the tiki bar was full, the pool was full, and the redneck horse shoe games were competitive! What more could you ask for? Well you asked for it…. the Under Dog and Sweet Polly Purebred outfits for the PHCOEM Super Phan Phun Run road rally really sealed the deal! They hand-made their costumes for the rally and proved to really be Parrot Heads truly All Round Town (or towns), as we traveled through quite a few towns during the rally in search of heroes and donations for the Huntington House at the VA Hospital in West Roxbury!
P.H.A.R.T. stands for being a Parrot Head All Round Town and this phamily has made their rounds this year! They represent what being a PHART is all about! Which brings me to my next point: being a PHCOEM PHART is an honor – your efforts don’t go unnoticed! We need to stick together as a group of people trying to make a positive difference in this world! Your hard work, hours of volunteering at different events, sticking by each other, and helping Parrot Heads in need are indeed proof that you are each heroes to someone! Thank you very much! To quote many people in the community, you truly are angels in tropical shirts! Thank you all for you hard work and keep it up – you could be the next PHCOEM PHART!!
