20190401 Presidents Letter

       Hello OD Shag Club members and welcome to April, 2019!  I hope none of you have had too many April Fools’ Day tricks pulled on you!  Once again, this month has started off cold! I just can’t wait for some warmer weather, but I think it’s right around the corner.  I certainly hope so!

         We had a great Chili Extravaganza at Fat Harold’s Beach Club on Saturday night and there was some awesome chili!  I think everyone who was there had a good time.  A special thanks to everyone who brought chili to this event.  Our club could not continue to have parties and feed everyone as low as our dues are if it wasn’t for all the members who faithfully bring food to our parties!

         If any of you are wanting to learn a new shag step, then look no farther than our Thursday night dance classes that are free for members. Our own Sonny and Tina Tomberlin are the teachers and they are both fantastic dancers and fantastic teachers. They are assisted by Billy and Monica Powell.  Classes are Thursday nights at 6:00 in the back room of Fat Harold’s.

         We are looking for a big April with SOS Spring Safari right around the corner, beginning April 25thand running through May 4th.  If any of you have not bought your SOS Cards yet, you can still buy them at a discount from our shag club if you hurry.  They are $30.00 each for members so get your checks in as soon as possible.

         Speaking of SOS Spring Safari, we would like for as many of you as possible to join us in the SOS Parade.  If you are interested, please contact Billy Powell, our club Vice President and Parade Chairman, as soon as possible so he can let you know about work days and costumes and stuff.

         Also, don’t forget about our Spring Safari Brunch at the OD Arcade and Grill on April 28th.  The food is always good and the camaraderie is better!  I hope to see you all there!
