Members Meeting Minutes

We are pleased to provide the minutes from the members meetings, for those of you who could not attend, or to refresh your memory if you did not catch what was said.

Our President Ben Reed opened up our meeting in the usual fashion with a team drink. 

First up…Elections…There was no nominations for the openings for Treasurer, Vice President and Social Director…so the BOD remains the same for the next year…Congratulations on two more years, Patrick, Charlie and Kathy. 

Our OSPHC Annual Fundraiser on May 10th at the Shields Post in Warwick was a HUGE success.This year, we raised a total of $3600.00 for our three charities….Wreaths Across America, The Wounded Warrior Project and The Military Lounge at T.F. Green airport. A great big thank you to all who attended to make the evening a fun and exciting time. We had tons of raffle prizes, a great 50/50 raffle and the food was delicious! We get better every year and next year’s fundraiser will be just as exciting! 

The Annual Chowder Cook-off is in Newport on June 7th. Bugsy will again be spearheading this. It’s no brainer as far as raising money goes. We signup to help out that day and we get a good sized check for our charities….somewhere between $1000 and $2000. Easy, Easy. There are usually 2 shifts for the day. So not only do you get to go to Chowder Fest, you also get to meet a lot of interesting and fun people.

The usual beginning of the month date has been changed so not to compete with Music on the Bay in Tampa. The theme next year is ..”Stories we could tell”. Registration is open and if you register before May 1st, you will also receive in your bag of goodies, a beautiful Tervis cup, which will have of course the logo of the convention on the front and a list of the New England Parrot Head Clubs on the back and the date of their inception. Around the top of the cup will be logo’s of all the clubs. It’s a great souvenir, so register soon so you too can receive this.

Ben opened up our meeting with a recap of the NEPHC. A very successful and fun convention by the Nautical Whalers PHC….No exact totals have been announced yet, but by the numbers it looks like the convention raised over $20,000! Congratulations! Everyone that went had a part in that and for that you should be very proud. Joe Ventitell….what a great job you did on the …JAIL & BAIL…in short, our President, Ben, was arrested as well as other members of other clubs, by the sherifetts and put in jail. They all had24 hours to collect enough money to get out! Aimlessly Wondering Richard came in first, followed by Sarge Browning, and our own Ben was third with a total of $478.00! That skit raised over $2500.00! It was truly one of the highlight events of the weekend and we all had a great time dressing up. Thanks again Joe and all who participated and emptied their pockets for our prez.

Next week!…. NEPHC! The Nautical Whalers Parrot Head Club will be hosting our next convention…Buzzards Bay Breezin…in Plymouth, Ma…February 28 to March 2nd, 2014. The website for the convention is up and running and includes all the information…bands, activities, etc that will be happening that weekend. Joe Ventitelli explained what we will be doing for the convention…JAIL & BAIL…in short, our President, Ben, will be arrested and put in jail and he has 24 hours to collect enough money to get out! Joe is the Sheriff and he will have Sheriffetts (is that a word?). All participants in this skit are to arrive at the ballroom by 7:00! He has ordered all the appropriate costumes and accessories for this.....so, if you’re going to the convention, be prepared to help Ben “get out of jail”! There will be plenty of things to do to keep you busy at the convention. Sailboat races..aka..rain gutter regatta…by your boat for 10 bucks, decorate it and BLOW it down the gutter. All that hot air we have been building up will be put to good use. Please also remember to bring any pennies you have been saving up to donate to a good cause! Thank you so much for all the donations for our OSPHC basket. We will be doing a RI basket with assorted things from RI and included with that will be a $1000 gift card to be spent as the winner sees fit. Not a bad win at all! Lots of raffles, lots of prices, lots of fun! See you all next weekend!

Ocean State Parrot Head Club You Had to Be There…… Members Meeting Minutes - January 9th, 2014 Davenports – East Providence Our President Ben Reed opened up our meeting in the usual fashion with a team drink. We opened up our members meeting with the annual PHIP requirements. This year we have given out in cash to charities…(drum roll) over $10,000.00!!! Wow! That is quite an accomplishment for a small club…this does not include collections, for clothing, shoes, food or any other physical item. You all deserve a pat on the back (pat, pat). This could not be done without the involvement of everyone in the club! Let’s continue this year; raising even more money for more charities…we can do it! Speaking of raising money….we will be having our annual fundraiser again this year in April. A date has not yet been determined. This year, we will incorporate Wreath Across America as our main charity….Sue Nelson is checking on the information needed with the coordinator of the Exeter Cemetery. Once that information is received, we will know what exactly we will be doing. We will also incorporate other charities into this fundraiser. We are going to spread the wealth! Last year’s fundraiser not only raised a lot of money, but it was also a great time. We will need everyone’s help to sell tickets and get the word out, once we settle dates, time, etc. We will have that information at our next members meeting in February. Kathy Batease, our Social Director went over our events for this year…some are already planned and some we need to get info on. So keep an eye on your e-mail and facebook to keep up with what is going on and to get information on how to sign up for these social events. Just an example of a few things….winery tour, seal watch, cosmic bowling, p-bruins game….possibly another Newport Storm distillery tour, maybe a paw sox game and polo. So keep an eye out!!! Never know what we are coming up with next!
