The location of the November party was Duck’s Beach Club, where 197 people enjoyed a bountiful Thanksgiving feast. Donnie Schultz did another excellent job planning the meal – thanks to him, Faye Chowning and the many helpers for keeping the food flowing and the tables replenished. Thanks also to all the members who contributed side dishes and delicious desserts for the party and to the Hospitality Committee for keeping things moving at the check-in table.

If you wanted to do some early Christmas shopping, Beth and Joe Cornwell were selling club logo merchandise. It was a busy evening, with Nancy Sook and John Barringer doing a fantastic job selling 50/50 tickets, while Fritz Eckhardt took photos for the Club’s website. Jerry Taylor’s name was drawn for wearing logo apparel, while Ken Meyer was the nametag winner and Jerry Harrell walked away with $243 as the lucky winner of the 50/50 drawing.

While Paul Craver provided the music, Mimi Benedict and Pat Folds started out the dancing, with John Barringer and Dennis Beaudreau leading them. It was good to see everyone out on the dance floor working off all that food. I had a great time and I hope you did too.

The OD Shag Club Dance Team was asked to dance at Belk’s Department Store at the Myrtle Beach Mall on November 14, 2015. Their theme for the event was called Santa Fest. We arrived at Belk’s around 1230pm and were met by Kerry Brown, Department Manager. The shoe department was very busy since they were having a big sale on shoes so we had a pretty big audience to dance for. Our team answered several questions as to who we were and were we were located. A couple of the shoppers requested an application to join the OD Shag Club. After we danced an elder couple approached me and asked if we could play 60-minute man since that was there song back in the day. Although the gentleman was unable to dance due to his physical condition he leaned against the mirror and danced with Barbara Harper. He wife of 58 years danced with Lenny Gardner. They could not have been more grateful. Thanks to Scott for playing our music. I would like to thank those members of the Dance Team who danced at this event:
