The OD Shag Club Demo Team danced for the residents at The Assisted Living Facility at Lakes at Litchfield in Pawley’s Island, SC, July 29, 2015. We arrived around 1:30 pm so that we were ready to dance by 2pm. While setting up and waiting for the residents to arrive, we were greeted  with a very warm welcome by the many staff members.

Linda Campbell spoke about our dance team and introduced each team member. As you will see in the pictures most of the residents are in wheelchairs and on walkers. Our objective of the Dance Team in this environment is not teach or to get everyone on the floor to dance, but to perform for those who are unable to do so.

Each couple danced two songs approximately 1:45 – 2:00 minutes all in all we were at the facility for around 2 hours.

It is a warm feeling when you see the smiles on the residents faces and how they enjoy the dance. We were able to have a few residents who were ambulatory to dance. Of course we let them lead. There were two staff members that we taught to dance. The staff and the residents went wild.

I would like to thank the members of the Team who participated at The Lakes: Lou Martino, Linda Campbell, Lenny Gardner, Cherie Patalik, James Thorndyke, Barbara Hopper, Wade Kirdahi, Joyce Girling, and Jay Kellerman.

We have 4 – 5 more events thus far for the rest of the year. Hope to see more club members out to support our team.

Great day for a Poker Run!! Our stops were the OD Arcade, Castaway’s Beach Bar, Boardwalk Billy’s, Deckerz and Fat Harold’s. We had 179 participants with quite a few other people who were riders and all signed waivers. We sold 62 mulligans and had 19 people draw a joker and instantly got their $20 entry fee back. Dana Hunter drew five Kings with a total score of 65, took First Place and won $600.00. Frances Hunter won Second Place with a 58 score and took home $300.00. Scott Michael and Terry McPhail tied for low hand with a score of 10 and elected to split the $200 the win. The rest of the entry money was given in envelopes for drawings at each stop. We raised $760.00 for the Camp Kemo 50/50 drawing, $380.00 went to Tish Joyce and $380.00 will go to Camp Kemo.

Prizes were donated from each of our club stops, as well as donations from Coco Cola by Archie Amerson, First Citizens Bank by Kay Amerson , NBSC by Frances Rogers and Graham’s Golf Carts by Mike Graham.

Thanks to all who participated and helped with the Poker Run.

201507 JR SOS Brkfst  01

The OD Shag Club treated the Junior SOS’ers and their parents to brunch on Sunday, July 19th at Fat Harold’s.  The OD Shag Club supplied 200 biscuits with various ingredients from Hardee’s as well donuts of assorted flavors and club members brought casseroles and fruits, which included watermelon, cantaloupe, grapes, and cherries.  Club members brought bacon, sausage, and hash brown casseroles. We also had biscuits and gravy for the servers.

We served 183 juniors and their parents.  Needless to say, we almost ran out of food, and were scraping some of the casseroles clean to feed everyone. All of the shag club members who attended had a good time and I hope we can get more members there next year.

After they had eaten, the Juniors enjoyed a gospel sing in the front part of Fat Harold’s.  Everyone also enjoyed hearing Torry Perrow’s beautiful singing.  Clebe McClary from Pawley’s Island gave a very inspirational talk.

Hope to see many of you at the Poker Run on Saturday and the Boat Ride to Nowhere next month.
