Cedar Isle hosts Support Our Troops
Monitor Staff Reports
SEVEN POINTS–Bringing the community together in a big way to support four local military personnel and their platoons stationed in far-away places is the goal of the Cedar Isle Restaurant and Baja Beach Club in Seven Points.
The troops are stationed away from stores and are unable to get everyday necessities they need, so the community is invited to bring items that can be included in care packages for the troops.
The event begins at 2 p.m. Saturday, July 11, and features live entertainment, games and other activities.
The event will raise money through donations, games and the selling of T-shirts. The monies raised will be used to purchase additional items to send to the troops.
The games present an opportunity for businesses to set up a tables and promote the business. The carnival-style games will raise money from ticket sales for additional items for the care packages.
The event also offers everyone in the community the chance to be a part of the effort.
To volunteer or for information, call Blake or Amber Dunn at (903) 880-6849 or Tiffany Padgett at (903) 275-7527.

What the heck is a Parrot Head?
Special to The Monitor
GUN BARREL CITY–A Parrot Head is someone who enjoys helping their community and is involved with local charities.
Parrot Head has an interest in Jimmy Buffett and the tropical life-style in his words and music, and a Parrot Head gives time and money to help their community be a better place.
You have probably seen Parrot Heads in tropical shirts helping out with Special Olympics, or on a “wooden ship” in the local Christmas parade.
You may also have seen a group of Parrot Heads at a local restaurant or club listening to tropical music, having a good time and raising money for one of the many charities we support.
In the last nine years, the Cedar Creek Lake Parrot Head Club has donated tens of thousands of dollars and hundreds of man-hours to these organizations and many more:
• the Family Resource Center,
• YMCA,
• The Library at Cedar Creek Lake,
• Friends of the Animals,
• DoDads and DoMoms,
• Cedar Creek Humane Society,
• Special Olympics,
• Cedar Creek Lake area Clean-Up,
• volunteer fire departments,
• Habitat for Humanity, and
• local area high school scholarships (five $1,000 scholarships each year).
If you enjoy helping your community, like Jimmy Buffett and tropical music and enjoy having fun – come join us at one of our monthly activities.
We are having a get-together at 6 p.m. Friday, July 10, at the new Parrot Pub (the outdoor area behind the Gun Barrel Roadhouse).
We will be having charity “crab races” – come cheer your favorite hermit crab to victory.
Our annual Poker Run is set for 10 a.m. to noon at Don’s Port Marina, ending up at 5 p.m. at Cedar Isle Saturday, July 18.
It is followed by live music from a great tropical band, “The Bad Monkeys,” and includes live and silent auctions, as well as a great time.
