He is always there if the Shag Club needs anything.
I want to take this opportunity to thank each of the Board Members for awarding me the 2014 Al Cain Award. I am honored and very happy to receive this most prestigious OD Shag Club recognition.
When you presented it to me at the Thanksgiving Party, I was so surprised and completely at a loss for words! I enjoy every minute of my membership in the OD Shag Club. I’M grateful for the opportunities I’ve had to contribute to our Club. The OD Shag Club is very important to me and I am extremely appreciative of receiving this award.
Very Cool – The South Strand Cardiopulmonary Rehab staff (Patty Mielke, Diane Tindall, and Gail Dowling) host a holiday party for their patients each year. They plan the event for months, coordinate on their own time, decorate and provide entertainment for the patients…again, on their own time and with their own resources, and do so with absolute joy. The patients and staff brought pot-luck and enjoyed fellowship with each other as they gathered at the MB Base Recreation Center. One lady in attendance is actively awaiting a lung transplant. Last night, 90 (patients/family) joined the South Strand Rehab staff and the OD Shag Club to celebrate life! One of the South Strand patients is also in the Shag Club…he is 92 years young! One of the patients’ husband was Santa Claus as “Yes, Virginia, There is a Santa” was read. Here’s some pictures from the event:
Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for coming to make the night enjoyable for our patients. They will be talking about “The Dancers” for months. What a great thing to bring some fun and excitement into their lives. Thanks again.
The gifts and food for the needy families were sorted and loaded on the trailer by the following volunteers: Wendy Schultz, Monica and Billy Powell, Tina Tomberlin, Rich and Karen Young, Peggy Christie, Bill Bacon and Susan and Kevin Harrell on Sunday morning. Monday morning Wendy Schultz, Tina Tomberlin, Peggy Christie, Bill Bacon and Rich and Karen Young delivered the items to Riverside Elementary and Ocean Drive Elementary. Thanks to all those that helped sort and deliver and to all the members who brought food to the party. Your generosity will make Christmas a lot brighter for these 4 families.

It was a beautiful day for a Parade, well that is until we got on Main St. The rain did hold out long enough for everyone to decorate, take pictures and share lots of love and laughs with friends prior to the parade starting. The golf carts where decorated with lights, garland and ornaments, everyone was dressed in all their Christmas attire. That Whoville group was a hoot and very entertaining with The Grinch and his dog Max!! The kids went wild!! A big thanks goes to Paul Harrison (ODSC Past President 2005) for helping me carry the Banner and get all the windshield flyers on the carts. Donnie and his worker bees did another great job making sure all the candy was given out.
We had 16 golf carts and 8 walkers, with a total of 66 people. Thanks to all that participated.
Thank you OD Shag Club, not bad for a rainy night!!
Lastly, I have enjoyed being Parade Chair since 2009 and we made some wonderful memories. Your new Parade Chair for 2015 will be Billy Powell. He and his wife, Monica (Vice President 2015) were involved with the Monroe Shag Club as Parade Chair for years and will do a fantastic job.
Thanks for a great ride!!
