Letter From The President August 2016

What a great month we had in July! First, we attended the ACSC Summer Workshop in Columbia, SC. The ODSC had approximately 14 attendees. It was a great time and we learned quite a bit of new information from the ACSC.

Once we returned home, it was time to plan the Junior SOS brunch. Thank you so much to everyone who contributed food and came and worked the brunch. All the Juniors were so appreciative! We served 236 Junior and their families. We were very proud to be able to give a donation of $1,500 to Junior SOS. This is a very worthy event and like everything else, their costs continue to rise. I am glad we are able to help.

Saturday, July 23rd looked like rain early that morning, but the sun came out and the temperature soared! That did not stop us from having a wonderful ODSC Charity Fun Run. There were 160 people who attended and 146 participated in the activities. Thanks so much to Donnie and Wendy Schultz! They had this running like a well-oiled machine. Many thanks to all the volunteers! We could not have done it without you. Check out Tina Tomberlin’s article about the Fun Run for information about all the winners during the day! The BIG WINNER was the Junior Shagger’s Dance Team (they danced for us at the mid-winter brunch). Net proceeds from this event went to this worthy team of Juniors. The donation was $1,752.00.

In August, we will be busy as little beavers…..business meeting, SASS, Bus to Somewhere, Cruise to Nowhere, Nomination Party, Beginner II Shag lessons, etc. Check out our events page for all the detailed information. In no time, we will be getting ready for Fall SOS.

Hope to see you at one of the August events or maybe I will see you at all of them!
