About the Club
Parrot Heads In Michiana (PHiM) is a local club comprised of people who have joined together for great causes. In addition to being a social club, the Parrot Heads phlock together to perform charitable actions, donate their time and raise money or supplies for local non-profit organizations. This local group is part of the national organization known as Parrot Heads in Paradise.
The first Parrot Head Club was formed in 1989 in Atlanta. Since that time, the organization has grown to almost 200 clubs worldwide. Members come from a variety of backgrounds, but they all share a number of interests in common. They all are attracted to Jimmy Buffett's music and the laid-back, tropical lifestyle he embodies. More importantly, they have a strong desire to give something back to the community in which they live.
The local chapter, Parrot Heads in Michiana, began in October of 2004, and has continued to grow. In their seventeen years in existence, PHiM has contributed more than 8,000 hours and $200,000 to local charities. Currently, the club has approximately 75 members and is always looking for more. If you have an interest in meeting other fun-loving people, Jimmy Buffett, tropical rock music, helping your community, and having a phun time, then this is the group for you. Click on the "Join Us" tab to learn how to become a member.
The club holds meetings and social gatherings on a regular basis. Feel free to drop in on a meeting and check out what we do. Meet with the group on the 3rd Sunday of every month (check Home Page for exact time and location). The club also holds a social hour each month at different bars and restaurants in the area.

STATE OF THE PHLOCK 2021
PARROT HEADS HAVE SURPASSED THE 60 MILLION DOLLAR MARKFOR CHARITY!
2021 was yet another difficult year for many clubs, somuch so that eight clubs ended up dissolving. However,with that said, our membership did increase slightly to justover 20,000. We currently have 195 active clubs.Many clubs were able toreturn to their “Party with aPurpose” mission. As Bob Noonanannounced, “Parrot Headsworldwide raised just under$170,000 for the Alzheimer’sAssociation.” That is almost 170%over our goal! The Alzheimer’sAssociation was not the only charity that benefited from thehard work and generosity of the Parrot Head Nation. Inaddition to the $168,908 raised for the Alzheimer’sAssociation, $1,876,776 was raised for all the othercharities combined. Yes, that is over 1.8 MILLION dollars!Parrot Heads not only raised money but volunteered theirtime combining for a total of 112,078 volunteer hours!That brings the 20 year cumulative total to 60.25MILLION DOLLARS raised for charity and 4.62 millionhours of volunteer service!
CONGRATULATIONS TO THEPARROT HEAD NATION FOR SUPRASSING 60 MILLIONDOLLARS FOR CHARITY!
Each of you should be proud of the positive impactyou’ve made in your communities, not just over the pastyear, for many of you have been contributing what may beconsidered a “lifetime” of service which has now resulted inover sixty million dollars being distributed to your local andnational charities.Although we did see a higher than expected numberof clubs dissolve over the past year, we have receivedseveral requests for information to start new clubs in newareas. This gives me hope that we’ve turned the corner andwill see a healthy increase in 2022
