Lakeshore Pyrate Heads Party with a Purpose!

One look at the wooden pirate ship and its pirate crew, and you might think you're in another time or place. But you've just come face to face with the Lakeshore Pyrate Head Club from Ludington, Michigan.
The group was created to promote friendship and organize social activities for people with similar interests. This of course, includes the enjoyment of Jimmy Buffett's tropical music!

The Lakeshore Pyrate Head Club, previously known as the Lakeshore Parrothead Club, was formed in 2002 by Don and Deb Harris from Baldwin, and is now run by Phil & Becky Riggs. Their motto is "Party with a Purpose," and that's exactly what they do--have a good time while helping others. Anyone who's heard the "BOOM" from their ship cannon is keenly aware the pirates are nearby.

The Alzheimer's Association is a regular part of their fund raising activities. Other worthy causes include the Salvation Army Food Pantry, the American Cancer Society, and Catholic Social Services. You'll see their pirate ship, "The Adventure," in the July 4th Freedom Festival Parade, Christmas Parade, at Movies in the Park, the Alzheimer's Memory Walk, and at Friday Night Live. They even hold their annual New Year's Day party right on the snowy and frigid ground at Stearns Beach.

The Lakeshore Pyrate Head Club is open to anyone with the tropical spirit and the desire to contribute to the community.
