Kathy has dedicated several years to the success of the Parrot Head Club of Eastern Mass (PHCoEM) and has served on the BOD as Social Director for 18 years now. She ensures that the social events are of a great variety and location to ensure that every Parrothead and non-Parrothead throughout PHCoEM’s vast area can attend and enjoy in sharing stories, drinks and other fun stuff like Wine & Painting parties.
She chaired the New England Parrot Head Convention hosted by the club in 2013 which raised $21,000 for Special Olympics of Massachusetts, Wounded Warrior, Katie’s Crusaders to help a little girl with several facial surgeries and the PHIN fund.
Kathy opens her home once a year in February for everyone in the club to partake in the Party for the Hardy, she coordinates the volunteers for the Head of the Charles Canoe/Kayak race in April, coordinates the camping weekends at Ellis Haven in Plymouth and can be seen at several of the other social and charitable events the club does throughout the year.
She was Thirsty Thursday Ambassador for the SEOB group at the Sand Bar for many years and recently stepped down and passed the torch to 2 other folks (Toni Astore & Kelly Connerton) who she successfully transitioned this role to.
She is always there to give advice and historical information regarding the club to new board members as they transition into their positions. She was instrumental in putting together the Club BY-LAWs and for moving the club forward in both technology and offerings.
She has been the North East Region Ticket Coordinator for Jimmy Buffett concerts since 2008. This takes a lot of effort to coordinate all the different North East Region clubs and get their counts and then deliver their tickets to them.
With all that she’s done and continues to do for PHCoEM – this is an appropriate acknowledgement of all her hard work and dedication.
