Betty “Boop” Leffue was presented the Emerald Coast Parrot Head Club's Volunteer of the Year Award by Hank Bittmann, Parrot Head president, at the Volunteer Recognition Party Dec. 7 at Harry T’s. She served on the publicity committee and did many jobs at all of the club's events.



The local club's membership grew this year to 328 members.



In 2013 the Emerald Coast Parrot Head Club donated more than $14,000 to many charities including Relay for Life, Northwest Florida State College Scholarships, Fisher House, Alaqua, Sharing & Caring, USO, Waterfront Rescue Mission, and Children in Crisis.



Leffue received a plaque, a special volunteer name tag and a free club membership for next year.
