Good Morning Parrotheads!
Well, it's one month into my term and I wanted to update everyone on what's been going on behind the curtains! As you all know from your own clubs, there are a lot of things that have to happen to pull ideas together and make the magic happen. This couldn't be done without a dedicated Board of Directors! They are:
Vice President Rick Fyffe
Secretary David Cohen
Director of Finance Charlene Schultheis
Director of Membership Sue Kermis
Director of Conventions Andrew Talbert
Assistant Director of Conventions Jim Dellacono
You should all know these names as they are the people that are getting things done and getting ready for the upcoming year. A lot is happening, and in one month the entire Board will get together to discuss and plan. We will discuss budget, finances, membership and club issues, as well as the schedule and performers for Meeting of the Minds (all subject to change of course....a lot can happen in a year!). I'm confidant Andrew has exciting things in store!
We have several pokers in the fire. You all have seen the concert announcements coming out and of course there will be more. We are also pursuing various avenues to help you all, as clubs, build and maintain your membership base. If you go to the PHiP.com website, you will see a tab at the top for awards and offers. We are hoping to populate that with Parrothead Perks for our members. Merch, clothing, and more....again, these things take time. But if you can offer great perks to your members, and prospective members...we all win!
As Jimmy Buffett concerts continue to be announced, remember there are websites for all of the house concerts, smaller venues, and club events as well to keep you singing and dancing until concert day! There are also some ideas to be discussed for new music opportunities.
I know you want details...but until these things are set in stone...hang tight and stay the course! Until then, feel free to ask questions, e-mail, call, or lately...catch us at an event, we'd be happy to lend an ear. I'll see some of you in Texas next week!
Until then, fins up!

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 eight years in existence, PHiM has contributed more than 6,800 hours and $160,000 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 on the Phirst week of every month at different bars and restaurants in the area. Check the "Meetings and Events" page for
