Phlock of South Jersey is proud to report that we just celebrated our 17th year anniversary as an officially sanctioned PHiP parrothead club (est. 1997)! Over the years we have happily and colorfully “partied with a purpose” both singly and jointly with several of our sister parrothead clubs. To assist and participate in fund raising efforts for the likes of : Alzheimer’s assoc., MS Society, American Cancer assoc., Ronald McDonald House and is a club sponsor for One Particular Phlocking charitable recipient Camp No Worries. Just to name a few. We look forward to many more years of camaraderie and being involved in serving our communities and to passing the torch on to the next generation of parrotheads. Who will continue to uphold our tradition of participating in charitable and environmental projects and having phun while doing so!
