The OD Shag Club board in keeping with our goal to promote the Shag decided to donate a 28” TV/ DVD combo and a shag dance video to the North Myrtle Beach Historical Museum. The museum had a corner dedicated to Shag Dancing but nothing to really explain what it was. Monica Powell worked with Chuck Stokes of Stage Videos to produce a video during our November party at Duck’s. The video included all ages and stages of the dance, as well as shag history and music. Our demo dance team, four Jr. Shaggers, other members of the shag club and The National Shag Dance Champion entry were all featured. Monica Powell, Wendy Schultz, Karen Young, Peggy Christie and Paulette Broadway made the presentation to Jenean Todd, museum Director.
Sunday, January 18, 2015 provided the first opportunity to get together and begin the New Year for our club under the guidance of our new President, Wendy Schultz.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!! Well another year has come and gone so the ODShag Club had there last party in the year 2014. We went out with a bang! Everybody was dressed in his or her Festive Attire looking for Santa. I am sure everyone was good little boys and girls.
Karen Young our past president started off the party by giving awards to those members that severed on the various boards and chairs. You can find all the pictures of the event on our website.
Once again we used the color-coded tickets to feed all of our members, which seems to be working for our hungry crew. As usual Heidi Cross our Chair and her Co-Chair Jenean Todd did a fabulous job feeding our members. The party was catered by T-bone steak house that provided: Lemon Pepper Chicken with white cream sauce, sliced roast pork with brown gravy, scalloped potatoes, seasoned green beans, and sweet corn. It was worth the wait!!
We did not have any entertainment, however, Linda Campbell our Entertainment Co-Chair shared a reading “Yes Virginia There Is A Santa Claus”.
All thru the evening, Ray Scott did his thing by playing such good sounds that it was hard to sit down. It was good to see every one dancing and staying until the party was over.
Now the part that we like to recognize those individuals who work so hard to make our Club what it is:

Happy New Year To All And To All A Good Night!
