What is the Phlock?
The 5 O'Clock Phlock Parrot Head Club was hatched on December 7, 2007. We are an officially sanctioned club with our national organization, Parrot Heads in Paradise, Inc. (PHIP).
We are a diverse group of all ages made up of professionals, retirees, adults, students, families with "parakeets"... and every single type of tropically-minded person in between.
Our goal is to get Parrot Heads together for fun, food and perhaps some crazy adventures from time-to-time, as well as supporting the goals of PHiP.

Wondering what a Parrot Head is, or what we do?
Basically, a Parrot Head is someone who loves the life that Jimmy Buffett sings about and loves Trop-Rock music. There are local chapters of Parrot Heads in Paradise (PHiP) all over the USA as well as several international clubs. These clubs promote fellowship as well as community involvement and environmental issues.

Supporting Our Community
The purpose of the 5 O'Clock Phlock Parrot Head Club is to provide charitable and educational activities promoting the general welfare of community.
We believe in leaving our community better than we found it. We support local charities, participate in the local Alzheimers walks, Relay for Life, and other causes to help out our community. We believe in doing all we can to better our communities. Whether we're raising money for our charities or cleaning up the environment...we do it with pride! And, best of all....we have fun while we do it!

Give the Kids a Christmas
Give the Kids a Christmas was started in 2006 by a few local citizens of our area who decided to help one family in need. Since that humble beginning, over 12,000 kids have benefited from the generosity of these every day folks. The kids fome from CPS foster care group homes, orphanages and women's shelters. All funds received go direct to the kids.
Relay for Life
Relay For Life is a team fundraising cancer walk event where team members take turns walking around a track throughout the night. Each team is asked to have a member on the track at all times to signify that cancer never sleeps.
Abandoned Animal Rescue
A non-profit 501(c)3 shelter for homeless pets with the goal to place animals into permanent homes. AAR’s policy is to treat the animals in our care as we would our own pets; we never euthanize a healthy, treatable, rehabilitative, manageable animal. AAR has spent thousands of dollars on medical care and behavioral training; AAR has never euthanized to make space.
The idea for New Danville originated with the mother of a high functioning, young adult who had a strong desire to live independently but still required some assistance. It was through this young man’s desire to live a fuller life that the concept of a community where intellectually and/or developmentally disabled men and women can live, learn, work, and be with their friends, both disabled and non-disabled, while providing a safe and caring environment encouraging independence and growth was born.
