The activities for 2020 have begun. The Mid-Winter SOS Brunch was held on January 19th. A great big THANK YOU to our Food Committee and servers who once again did a great job. Paulette Miller, Kathy McCoy, Terry McCoy, and Faye Chowning handled all of the details without a hitch. There was plenty of food to go around.
Also, thank you to the Junior Shaggers who put on an incredible demonstration. The future of the Shag looks bright given their talents. If you have never seen them perform, you are missing something special.
Thank you to those who purchased 50/50 and golf cart raffle tickets.
A great time was had by all.

A special thank you to all that helped with our Mid-Winter Clean Sweep! We gathered in the parking lot of Deckerz at 8:30. After coffee, biscuits, cookies and doughnut holes we ventured into the streets to gather trash. We had 26 members attend and gathered 26 bags of trash! Someone even brought up pieces of concrete!
Then we settled in for socializing and enjoyed it so much everyone said they will see us in the Spring for our Spring Safari Clean Sweep!
Hope to see even more members then!

The January brunch was a great party. Having the opportunity to see all the junior shaggers was exciting and also a great reminder that we need to support them to keep our dance going into the future.
As all of you know, February is when one of our biggest events is held…. The World-Famous Oyster Roast! This event requires a tremendous amount of work both before (preparation, set-up, cooking and serving) and after (clean-up). Please contact Terry McCoy or Donnie Schultz to help with the before and after. A lot of labor is needed and a great time is had by all involved.
EVERYONE can help clean up after the event. Tables to be taken apart, oyster shells cans cleaned and of course all the trash cans. Don’t be one of those people who just eat and leave for others to do all the work.
The Oyster Roast will be held on February 22 at the OD Arcade. Members are free and guests are $25 per person. Looking forward to seeing you there!
Another new year….2020! I am looking forward to another successful year at the ODSC. Thanks to everyone who worked and/or participated in our events last year. A big thank you to all those who volunteered to be Committee Chairs for 2020. All committees have been filled except for one very important one. We are still in need of a Parade Committee Chair. We usually participate in 3 parades per year with the biggest being the SOS parade in April. This parade is a lot of fun and our participation brings a lot of recognition to our club. We have also won First Place in the category we have entered for at least the last 15 years, maybe longer. If you would like to take on this committee or know of someone that does, please contact me as soon as possible.
Our January party will be the Mid-Winter Brunch at the OD Arcade. I hope to see all of you there. Don’t forget Clean Sweep will be the following Saturday on the 25th. This is a lot of fun and great community service.
In closing, I would like every member to ask themselves what they can do to help support the ODSC. Only with active participation of its members can the club achieve its potential.
