ODSC Foundation Charity Golf Tournament
Sunday October 7ththe OD Shag Club Foundation hosted the 28thannual Charity Golf Tournament at the Valley at Eastport Golf Club. For the first time in event history the tourney had to be rescheduled due to Hurricane Florence. Even with the change of date we still had over 80 golfers participate! The day brought beautiful blue skies, temperatures in the mid 80’s and a couple of quick downpours but all in all it was a great day for raising money for local charities.
Kudos to the Golf Tournament Committee for basically planning two tournaments this year. Glenn Strange, Ken Myer, Bob Miller, Terry McCoy, Donna Strange, Karen Young and Monica Powell had worked very hard in planning the tournament to be held during SOS, but because of Hurricane Florence they had to contact everyone to postpone the tournament. As soon as power was restored and roads were opened they got together and starting planning a make-up date. They did a fantastic job contacting all golfers, volunteers and vendors to reschedule the event. There is always a lot of hard work in making this event a success but this year the committee worked doubly hard and we REALLY appreciate all their time and effort!!!
