Thank you, thank you, and thank you to the members of the OD Shag Club who came out and participated in this special evening. The participation by both the members of the club and the residents of the Manor was exceptional; smiles were in abundance all around. A special thank you to Debbie Schmitt for the Bunny Cakes, and Linda Campbell, a great Master of Ceremony.

The Junior Shaggers started off the evening with some impressive dances. They were than followed by Earl and Beverly Robinson, 2010 National Shag Champions in the Masters Division. Our own shag team did some good-looking steps to some great songs. Linda, Lou and Lenny did their three-person dance and the residents were very impressed, than of course Lenny told some jokes to the amusement of the crowd. Sheila and Bill Seymour, 2016 National Shag Competitors in the Pro Division, did some fancy stepping, followed by Annette Johnson and Dwight Langley who did a fantastic smooth shag or as they say in the shag world “A Smoothie”.

Elvis (Ken Thompson), a professional Elvis impersonator, truly entertained the audience to his authenticity as Elvis. His attire was top notch, his mannerism was perfect, and in a nutshell he was fantastic!

Our own Easter Bunny (Donnie Schultz) came hopping into the room to “Peter Cottontail”. He personally greeted each and every resident as the members of the club distributed chocolate Easter Bunny’s.

Last but not least, Mr. Smooth, Paul Craver entertained the residents with two beautiful songs. He personally greeted many of the lady residents and the smiles were abundant.

A sing-a-long was warranted and as we sang to “That’s Amore” the members of the club came out and danced and sang with the residents, it was something to behold. We then all sang “God Bless America” and wished the residents a happy and healthy summer.

Until December, this is Joe Ferlauto your Myrtle Beach Manor Chair saying thank you and may each and every one of you have a healthy and happy summer.
