One of the many things that makes the OD Shag Club special is our Hospitality Committee. Cindy Day and her team comprised of Judi Shepard, Martha Murph and Cassy Shumway greet and welcome everyone to our parties. They have a way of making all of us feel special! Let me tell us a little about this great team!
Cindy Day was born in the “arctic tundra” of Minot, North Dakota. The record low in Minot has been as cold as -49 degrees. No wonder Cindy moved to South Carolina 35 years ago! Cindy has been a decorator for Belk for over 10 years and has been a member of the OD Shag Club since 2008. Since joining the Shag Club, Cindy jumped right in and joined the Decorations Committee and has been the Chairman of the Hospitality Committee for 3 years. Her favorite OD Shag Club event is the Oyster Roast. Who doesn’t love the Oyster Roast? She loves Darius Rucker music and loves being on the Hospitality Committee.
Judie Shepard was born in Windsor, Ontario, Canada! I hear it can be rather cold in Canada, as well! Judie moved to NMB in 1997 from St. Simons Island, GA where she was a charter member of the Golden Isles Shag Club. Judie has been a member since 1997 and has worked on the Decorations Committee, Golf Tournament and Hospitality Committee. Judie’s favorite OD Shag Club event is the Christmas party where everyone is all dressed up and looking fine! Her favorite shag song is “Move Across the River”. I heard through the grapevine that Judie has sold more than 1 ticket at our golf cart raffle tent!
Martha Murph comes to us by way of St. Paul’s, North Carolina. She and her husband had been coming to the SOS for years and decided to move here in 1999. She has been a member of the OD Shag Club for 17 years. Martha has served on many committees including Ways and Means and she must love the Hospitality Committee since she has been on the committee 3 previous times. Her favorite OD Shag Club event is the Christmas party so she can see a lot of the members in all their glitter! Martha tells me that once upon a time, the OD Shag Club had a Laugh-In Wall and they were hysterical. Maybe we can reinvent the wall at some point!
Cassy Shumway was born in Plattsburg, New York. When she and Tim retired from the Air Force in 1996, they beat a path to NMB! Cassy runs her own cleaning service. She has been on the Decorations Committee, Entertainment Committee, Board Member and Hospitality Committee. Cassy is one of our Al Cain Award winners and is currently a board member. Cassy loves Bruno Mars’ new song – Funk You Up and she loves the Clean Sweep event! Who knew?
One thing the Hospitality Committee has in common is that they all volunteer for various jobs in the OD Shag Club and have fun while participating!
Please say Hello to our Hospitality Committee and thank them for everything they do!
Way to Go, Ladies!
