Well Lady Di and I are home from another fun and sun filled Meeting of the Minds in Key West. We took St. Clair Parrot Head member Becky and Hamilton’s A1-EH Sue, and while they both had been to Key West, they had never taken the “Parrot Head” tour. We hooked up with all our friends from the Mini-St. Somewhere Club, Detroit, Parrot Heads on the Grand, Toronto Maple Reefers, all our musician friends including Bodean. Your fearless Captain even rented a scooter for a few hours of island cruising, but I’ll take my big Harley ElectraGlide any day. Those scoot’s are downright crazy to ride in that kinda mass confusion! We took a Sunset Sailboat Pirate cruise with the Conch Fritters steel band. The attached photo is none other than your infamous Captain prepared to lead the boarding party! A least that’s what they told me?
As fall now turns to winter, the Club now shifts the POETS from the backyard to the bar scene with all the monthly locations being picked @ last month’s meeting. Hope everybody attends as many as they can, so we can be seen (and heard) in the St. Clair area. November 19 is our next big event, our Bowling and Toy Drive @ Highway Bowl, now in its 7th year. (See the event page for all the details). The Toys all go to the Inn of the Good Shepherd’s Children’s Christmas Party and they truly depend on the Parrot Head donation to fill their 11-15 year old toy needs. The club also voted to give Lady Di funds to help the Inn cover any last minute shortfalls in any other age group. Next up for December 3, Lady Di and I’s Club Christmas Party, always a fun filled time featuring a traditional X-mas fare of Fajitas and Margaritas! Hope y’all can attend, BUT PLEASE RSVP, the Quartermaster and Bar Steward need to know how much food and grog to lay aboard!
Lastly don’t forget to get your nominations in those positions coming up for election for 2017 and be sure to come out and vote or e-mail in your ballot to our election officer Terri.
