SBPHC...What time is it?
    
It’s time for a team drink!

Mike Fontaine
Message from the President



Five “Not-Bored” members attended the regional Parrot Head Leadership Conference last month in Tampa. Every year, leaders from the Florida clubs meet to talk about ways to improve our clubs and listen to other leaders’ concerns and address any problems they may be having. If you recall, a couple months ago we sent a survey to you from PHiP. We discussed the survey results at the conference. A few notes of interest: the question "how do you prefer to receive club information" resulted in 567answers that stated “email.” One that kind of surprised me was that, out of 556 people who responded to this question, 277 have never been to Meeting Of The Minds in Key West. The last one I will share with you is this: of 570 responses to the survey, 72.8% said they would renew their membership. I think that is a great percentage! Next year’s Leadership Conference will be in Jacksonville, but you don't have to wait until then to share some great ideas! Any questions about the conference or survey, please ask me.
     It's time to get your golf club out of the closet and get ready for the best golf outing of the year! Saturday, October 12th is “The Patti Myles Open” Alzheimer's Golf Tournament at Bobby Jones Golf Course. We will have an 8am shotgun start again. Remember, you do not have to be a golfer to play-this is for fun and charity. We will have some great fundraising challenges at the golf course to help raise even more money. After the tournament we will be going to Twin Lakes for awards, food and fun.
    Don't forget to sign up for the Walk to End Alzheimer's on November 16th. Come out and dress in your best Parrot Head outfit to represent and join the team and raise money for Alzheimer's.
     One final thing to share with you...we recently completed an interim report to PHiP that tracks volunteer hours. In 2018, Parrot Heads spent a total of 2,238 hours volunteering in our
community. Thank you for all of your efforts!
