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!

It’s also the month we collect for Ronald McDonald House, They request donations of Liquid Laundry Detergent, Paper Towels, Toilet Paper, Surface Cleaners, 13 gallon Trash Bags and Individually-wrapped Snacks, and don’t forget the Aluminum Can Pull Tabs you’ve been collecting all year!

For March, the American Legion in Oaklyn (where we hold our meetings), is inviting us to join them in their St. Paddy’s Day Celebration, it will be Friday, March 17. They will have traditional Paddy’s Day food starting at 4p , for the very reasonable price of $4. We’ll start our HH at 7p and Entertainment starts at 8p
Stay tuned for April’s Beach Clean-Up and Happy Hour . Hopefully the weather will be better this time .
And lastly OPP. There is still plenty of room at this year’s big regional event May 5th & 6th http://www.oneparticularphlocking.com/ . I’ve been working hard to line up the best entertainment possible ! Once again the headliner on Saturday will be The Boat Drunks , and Friday Headliner will be The Southern Drawl Band who recently released a new CD , We’ll also be seeing Jimmy and the Parrots, Sunny Jim, Beg Borrow and Steel, Nicky Fabz, Tropical Soul, Girlz Rule, and Dead Jimmy. This is a great opportunity to see some of the best Trop Rock Bands in the country, in our own back yard. Bring your friends they don’t need to belong to a club !
