Many of our members are Phans of the leader of the
Phlock…Jimmy Buffett. We aspire to live the lifestyle Jimmy
writes and sings about. A simpler, laid-back lifestyle with tropical
themed parties and other events to build comraderie, forget about
the stresses of life for a few hours, and to “party with a purpose” by
giving back to others in the community.
Long ago, someone coined the term “Parrot-Heads” as the name
for Jimmy Buffet’s crazy phans and it stuck. Today, there are over
250 Parrot Head clubs around the world.
For your money, we would hope you would get a chance to meet
some people you have never met before in a fun setting with no
strings attached. And, in addition to the social events planned,
there will be opportunities to help clean up our local rivers and help
determine where our charity monies will be directed. Members may
also get opportunities in the future to obtain tickets for Jimmy
We plan to meet every other month for some type of social
gathering. We also are working on a website, Facebook site, and we
plan to have a newsletter “The Pineapple Press” that will most likely
go out via email either monthly or quarterly.
Here are a few we have kicked around:
1.) Winter Beach Party! Probably held indoors (of course) with

tournament, island attire clad patrons….you get the visual! Open
to general public.
3.) River Adventure: Many members have boats and we have
discussed taking club members and their children out on a
sandbar for a private “island party”. Members only.
4.) River Clean Up: Jimmy Buffett is very big into
environmental causes and Chad Pegracke from Living Lands and
Waters comes to Burlington every year to clean up the river. We
believe this would be a great project to be involved with. Members
5.) Introducing Underprivileged Kids to the River/Boating: We
have a lot of kids in the Burlington area who have never been on a
boat or been on the river. We would like to start a program (similar
to civil air patrol program where they introduce kids to flying) for
kids to learn about the Mississippi and get a chance to go for a boat
ride. Members only.
We are trying to keep this very low cost. Annual dues for an
individual is $25.00 and for families is $40.00. We believe if you
compare this to any local service club you will find it to be very
