Lisa Alves, Sheryl Davis, Pam Mascroft - Quarter 1 2018
The first quarter PHART awards are going to three people in a tight race at the top of the point leader board. January, February and March were busy months preparing for our upcoming year.
The first recipient has been coming to events and bringing her mom Mary for the past few years, both happily working hard at all our volunteer activities. Congratulations to our first quarter Parrot Head All 'Round Town Lisa Alves-Mason. She made quite an impression on the kids at the special Olympic dance in Mechanics Hall this winter. Both she and her mom Mary can be seen annually at the Alzheimer’s walk and Diabetes walk. We thank her for her continuous support and volunteerism.
The next two recipients are usual suspects and can be seen together most of the time at events due to where they each live and logistics. They have been very active members for years and were big players in our circus theme at this past convention. So congratulations to our cute lil lioness cub Pammy Mascroft and our bearded lady Cheryl Davis for all their support and help all over the state this past quarter. They helped at the Special Olympic dance at Mechanics Hall, they were at our holiday party, they traveled to Connecticut for our annual New England convention, they are part of the Jamaica Me Crazy tubing team and I only wish I had half their energy! They continue to be a positive influence on anyone they come to know and we love them for that. They travel all over to volunteer and that’s why they are the first quarter parrot heads all round town.
Thank you to all three of these PHCoEM members for they all represent what our club does for the common good of our communities. The positive influence, the hard work of volunteering, the doing for others no matter where or when is part of what a Parrot Head All 'Round town does. A PHART member of our club is a special award and there is no doubt these three incredible ladies deserve the highest honor.
This club does so much all over the state to help many charities and communities that are in need. It is important for you all to know we are stronger together. I am so proud of all our members at each and every event we are at. Some people thank us that day, others write us cards and thank us with pictures and letters, and the appreciation of what you all do to help our communities does not go unnoticed. So thank you PHCoEM members for all you do.
Thank you. Captain Mac sparrow

Gosh how time is flying by. I could have sworn we just announced our previous winners and our third quarter has passed us by. So without further ado our latest and greatest PHART award winners are Nancy and Tony Butkus. They have become quite the members especially as of late! I think they may have attended almost every event we had this quarter. No matter where it was held there was Nancy and Tony lending a helping hand. Cheering on riders at the Pan Mass Challenge in Wrentham, helping at registration at the Alzheimers Memory Walk in Worcester, picking up trash at the beach in Plymouth, or flipping burgers at Special Olympics in Barnstable. The two have become quite the Parrot Heads All Round Town. They came to the Halloween Party in one costume and left in another! They wore the PHART shirts and shorts proudly all night at the dance. They love coming to our events and helping in any way they can. They don’t look for recognition and simply stated they do it because they can. It makes a person feel good knowing you have helped someone less fortunate no matter what it is. That is what this club does. It is why you should all be proud to be part of such a great phun organization. I know I am! I am so happy to say Nancy and Tony have made an impact on many events this third quarter and they put themselves in the PHART award category! Thank you! Please when you see this couple say wooopppp wooopppp thank you. Mac

Terri Weissenberg & Ryan Hill - Quarter 2, 2016
Hello Phlockers that time of the quarter has arrived and it is time to announce our latest prestigious PHART award recipients. We have a tie this quarter between 2 of our regulars at all the charity events.
The first award goes to Terri Weissenberg. Terri was at almost every charity event we had this quarter! She has continued to show up and help out at events all over the state no matter the location, the weather, the time of day she is always there lending a helping hand. She has been a club member for years and a regular contributor at everything she attends. She has helped out the club basket team for conventions, donated raffle prizes and continues to travel the state looking to lend a helping hand at all the charity events possible. That is what a Parrot Head All Round Town does. A PHART recipient is an attendee at all or as many events as possible and volunteers their time and efforts all for a good cause. We have many members in this club like that but this quarter we would like to honor Terri with the prestigious PHART award. So if you see her at the next charity event thank her for her efforts in all the charity work she has done for our communities during the second quarter.
The second PHART award goes to Ryan Hill. Yes a Keet has earned the award! Ryan has been to all the charity events with Carol Shapiro. Yes Nana Carol has brought this inspiring young Parrothead to volunteer at all special Olympic events, flipping burgers, handing out water and dancing with the athletes at their event in Boston. Carol keeps him busy coming out and volunteering with us and in turn he has learned many valuable life's lessons and is growing up to be not only a fine young adult but a great contributor to our club as a Parrothead. Ryan always has a smile on his face and is ready to help anyone any where and that makes him a special Keet. Keep bringing him along Nana Carol we always like to see our younger generations get involved and make a difference. So if you see Ryan at an event, busy running round helping out when he can, please take the time to introduce yourself to this fine young inspiring Keet.
Jean & John Duffill - Quarter 1 2016
Hello phellow phlockers it is that time to reward the people that earned the prestigious PHART award of the quarter! We would like to show our appreciation to Jean and John Duffill. Congratulations you both have earned the title of being the newest in the the line of PHART award recipients! They both were instrumental in helping organize and be the ambassadors for the two Operation Troop Support volunteer efforts the club assisted at up in Danvers Mass. John and Jean with other members helped package goods and load trucks for the troops. They also came to the holiday party and the convention. The Duffills attend and at times are fill in ambassadors at the North of Boston meetings. We have seen John and Jean all round town at many club and even non club adventures over the past 12 years or more. John is usually carrying his camera taking great club pics wherever he is at. They have been a staple in our club standing strong and helping others in any way they can! They are an awesome couple to get to know so please next time you see John and Jean all round town please give them a hug, handshake, fist pump, high five , a that-a-way, great job, and a huge thank you from all of us in the club and on the BOD for being a true Parrot Head All Round Town. Thank you for all you do for the club.
Carol Shapiro - Quarter 4 2015
Good day Phellow Phlockers it is time to announce the newest member of our prestigious PHART Phlock. This person attended almost every club event this last quarter and even ran one on her own! She is a favorite Key West bike rider, hammock swinger and flying monkey drinker. Yes Carol Shapiro is the latest PHART recipient. She brings her grandson Ryan to charity events helping at Special Olympics and participated in the Taunton parade with the club dressed like pirates. She held down the fort at a corner giving directions to people for the Autism Walk for Jakes team. Carol ran just a fantastic Halloween party down at the VFW where we had lots of fun games, delicious food and the costume wearing Island Castaways Band played for us all night. She got up early to meet us at the Bourne National Veterans Cemetery to lay wreaths on vets graves. It was a very emotionally charged morning but she managed to help bring a positive spin and a smile to people's faces and then we all went out for a great lunch. She continues to participate in as many club events as she can bringing her grandson and teaching him the true values of being a contributing member of not only this club but an upstanding member of our community. The Parrot Head All ‘Round Town is a way for us to recognize members that have been to club events all over our area and continue to improve the charities we volunteer for. What we do as a club helps so many people and improves the communities that we live and work in. In this fast paced, social media, technology driven world we live in, it is important for us to honor all the hard working, down to earth, honest, caring and genuine volunteer members of this Phamily. Yes Carol is the newest in this awesome Phamily of ours so next time you see her, probably on the Jamaica Me Crazy tubing team say, Congrats. The club recognizes by quarter and attendance the member or members who have attended and contributed most to the events as they happen. So Thank You to all of our members for as of this quarter we doubled our volunteer hours from last year! That says a lot not only about the club but you all as members and we can't thank you enough for all you do. Congratulations Carol
My sincerest thanks. Donna "Mac" Mccarthy.

We have always been able to count on them to show up, Ken with his spatula in his hand, Carol on to bag snacks, the boys ready to pass out water or do whatever we need of them!

They continue to participate in as many events as they can and you know we all love when Ken hits the grill!! The boys have been through high school and moved onto college now all the while participating in club events that have helped them grow as great people!

Shawn is a masterful Belgian waffle maker and all the fixings, really! Wow is all I can say! They are from our WoW contingent but you will find them at many club events all over. They gave graciously to the club basket and raffles for the holiday party!

I mean who else was a more fitting and wiling candidate for Chewbacca!!! Shawn played his role masterfully and we thank you both for helping bring more magic and enthusiasm to our club and events! So thank you to Tiffany and Shawn Davis for being our latest in a growing group of Parrot Heads All Round Town.
Bob and Stephanie McQueen - Quarter 4 2014
Hello Phellow Phlockers the Q4 2014 newest members of the PHCOEM Phart Phamily have been announced. The holiday party was quite the event and just perfect timing to award Bob and Stephanie McQueen the Parrot Head All Round Town award.
They made just about every event that were in the last quarter and my most memorable was pouring beer in a rainstorm at the Octoberfest in Hopedale Bob had a system going for pouring the beer (we all fought for the Shipyard Pumpkinhead tap) he was a machine and of course there was a lot of taste testing going on along the way! After the Octoberfest was over we sat down chatted and relaxed , we had our picture taken with a pirate that was walking round. That’s when I knew that they fit right into what our club is all about they are very special people and we are lucky to have them as members representing the club. Bob and Stephanie were also a big part of the success to The PHCOEM tree decorating party at Sunshine’s house where not only did they donate a ton of presents they were all wrapped!
All nice and neatly packed and each had a tag on them what age and boy or girls! The genuine kindness and generosity of not only them but their entire family.
They have even involved the Keets , their son Robby collected food and funds for the local food pantry.
This family has truly been Parrot Heads All Round Town and represented our club in a real positive light all over the northeast throughout the last quarter!
Steph and Bob we really appreciate all you have done for the communities in our areas! Thank you

Mike helped a great deal, as many did, with the convention set up the day before. He helped stuff bags, bring in raffle gifts, lug prizes across to the rooms and many other gopher jobs we needed done to make the event successful. He can be seen going from the Cape to many club events! Yes across the bridge! So please look for Mike or Gilligan at the next event and give him a shout out for being the latest PHART! He truly is a Parrot Head All Round Town. Thank you for all your contributions to this great phamily and club!
Elena and Bob Pouliot - Quarter 1 2013
Congratulations go to PHARTS Elena and Bob Pouliot. They were nominated as the fall winners and they have continued to prove to all of us what and why being a parrothead is so important to making this round ball we live in and on a better place. They put together our awesome bus trip to Mohegan Sun and helped run the HMEA Independence Walk in Franklin. Not to mention the fact, they are also inductees to the Special Olympics Hall of Fame. They were voted on and announced at our convention this year in Mansfield. The Pouliots have been very active in and with Special Olympics and at most of the events with their son Bobby Jr. and the rest of the family helping in one capacity or another. Elena and Bob could also be seen running around at the convention doing errands and getting the extra little things done that make them truly Parrot Heads All Round Town. The Pouliots can be seen attending the Thirsty Thursdays down at the Sandbar usually. Sometimes they take the trip to other meeting places. So wherever or whenever you see them next give them a big high pheather phive and tell them thanks for making our club better with Parrot Heads All Round Town like them in it! Thank you Elena and Bob!,
Liz , Leo, PJ and Paul McCarthy - Quarter 4 2012
Our next PHARTs are the McCarthy’s of Walpole! Congratulations to Liz , Leo, PJ and Paul for their latest and greatest accomplishment!

They were handing out water and making lunches at the special Olympic events, found unloading trucks in Franklin at a fun run at EMC, camping down the Cape at Ellis Haven. Liz even won chicken breasts at the club meat raffle!! The club has also enjoyed a few after parties at their home in Walpole. The Pan Mass after party was again a big hit; the tiki bar was full, the pool was full, and the redneck horse shoe games were competitive! What more could you ask for? Well you asked for it…. the Under Dog and Sweet Polly Purebred outfits for the PHCOEM Super Phan Phun Run road rally really sealed the deal! They hand-made their costumes for the rally and proved to really be Parrot Heads truly All Round Town (or towns), as we traveled through quite a few towns during the rally in search of heroes and donations for the Huntington House at the VA Hospital in West Roxbury!

She was an integral part of the success and smooth running of the clubs meet and greet at last year’s Buffett concert. Deb helped run the Jolly Jaunt up north this past December along with so many of our club phriends. Recently the bored had an all bored meeting with the Special Olympic heads at their new facility in Marlboro. The meeting was awesome we got a tour of their new place and we got to see where the brick club purchased for them is going. We coordinated the clubs roles at events and collaborated calendars and it was great to be able to sit all together in one place and communicate all their concerns and questions and answers all thanks to Deb’s enthusiasm for making this club better all over Eastern MA. Thank you Deb for being a true parrot head all round town!?
Heather Merrolli - Quarter 1 2012
The fifth member of our parrothead all round town is Heather Merrolli!! Waddles as she is affectionately known has been quite an asset to our crazy crew. Heather has been in involved with 2 road rally ‘s now and has become quite a personality to have round. She dressed as a penguin at last year’s Halloween party, hence the nickname, and wore that same penguin outfit tubing at nashoba and was spotted next to a landshark! Waddles has been to many club camping trips and contributed at Special Olympic events and other volunteer events. She has truly been a parrothead all round town and all over new England. Thanks Waddles for being such a good role model for people to follow in our parrothead community.
Mike Donnelly - Quarter 4 2011
The fourth member of our phart program is Mike Donnelly. He truly is a parrothead all round town. One can usually find mike around a grill or kitchen or anywhere there is food to be cooked. He was recently spotted grilling for volunteers at the Special Olympics in Brockton. He was known as the man with the special pizza to some of the athletes. The riders of the Pan Mass Challenge have come to love the Wrentham water stop for mikes grilled cuisine and the parrothead atmosphere that goes along with it! When he is not grillin and chillin with the parrotheads he is tailgating for his skating girl. He was also spotted next to a grill and a hammock at one big back yard party in new York? Where will we find him next who knows but thanks Michael for being one of our parrotheads all round town!

Congratulations Kathy for you continued hard work with all the clubs social activities and New England ticket coordinating. The party for the hardy was a huge success again this year.

She has been seen all over New England and recently during our lovely cruise hosted a bloody mary party during one morning and late night sliders after hours in their room!
