More Than a Club…
Who are we?
In essence, the short answer is we are similar to a Jimmy Buffett fan club. Although we are not a “fan” club, we are certainly all fans of Jimmy’s music. It is one of the many common bonds our members share.
In actuality, the long answer is the Tampa Bay Parrot Heads in Paradise Club, Inc. is a diversified group, who are drawn to the tropical music and the laid-back island-lifestyle suggested in Jimmy’s music.
Our age-range spans six decades and our roster includes all types of people; from an aerobics instructor to zoologists, students to teachers, the guy who flips the cheeseburgers to the lady who owns the burger stand, and all points in between.
This club is more than a small group; with over 400 active members our club is involved in many events and activities. Our members are friendly, fun, and non-judgmental. It simply feels like family.
What Do We Do?
Well, the rumors are true. In the last 28 years we have refined and redefined the word party. This fun group is always having fun, whether it’s at our meetings, community projects or informal get-togethers.
Most importantly, we pride ourselves on making a difference in our world. We were voted “Volunteer Club of the Year” by Lowry Park Zoo & “Community Service Organization of the Year” by Keep Hillsborough County Beautiful.
We perform beach clean-ups and other volunteer functions, and the club sponsors an USF Endowment for Marine Sciences. We support:
- Save the Manatee Club
- Clearwater Marine Aquarium
- Tampa Bay Watch
- Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful
- USF Endowment for Marine Sciences
- Florida Parrot Rescue
- And so much more
