Christmas Kids

Each year the OD Shag Club sponsors several families with elementary school children for Christmas.  This year, we had 7 families with 7 children.

I would like to thank all those who helped with the Christmas Kids project for the OD Shag Club this year.  Jeannie Brandt, Beth Cornwell and Cindy Day were there for the shopping days for the 7 kids. Jeannie Brandt, Paula Webb, Anita Baldwin, and Joan Bacon helped wrap all the gifts.  We were able to get almost everything on the kids’ wish lists so they should have a very Merry Christmas. 

I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas, too.

We want to say THANK YOU to all the members of the club who attended the Christmas party on December 6, 2021.  Your participation and interaction with the residents was phenomenal.  The smiles on the faces of the residents and their participation in the play and sing a longs was truly a joy to see.  You displayed the true meaning of Christmas to these folks by your enthusiasm and support for the event.  Without you, it wouldn’t have happened.
 
A special thanks to Gracie and Connor, our junior dancers, who were a huge hit with the residents!  A big thank you also to our own Bill Anderson, DJ for the evening who helped move things along smoothly, our photographers, Kay & Mark Hughes, and Bill and Diane Millman (Santa and his lovely helper). We also want to thank Diane Millman, along with Connie Livingston, for creating and teaching the “Elf Dance”.  It was a huge hit with the residents and just a whole lot of fun to do.
 
Again, we want to thank each and every one of you for making this evening a success and putting a smile on several faces during this special time of year. We wish each and every one of you a Merry Christmas and a healthy and happy New Year.

The NMB Christmas parade was held on Saturday, December 4th and the OD Shag Club was certainly a part of the entertainment.  Buddy (Bill Millman) and his favorite elf (Diane Millman) led our entry and they had a lot of elves walking with them to throw out beads. 

We were extremely popular with the children.  You could hear as murmur in the crowd of kids as the banner went by with “They have Beads!!!”  We had great golf carts all shining in the dark with fantastic lights!

A special thank you to John Barringer and Nancy Sook for signing everyone in and handing out the beads.

Also, special mention to Mark Adcock who took his Model T (from the 2019 SOS parade) and turned it into a 1917 Ford Truck pulling a trailer.  Great way to recycle Mark!

The OD Shag Club held our Thanksgiving Party November 20, 2021. What a great night. We were greeted by our lovely hospitality ladies set up in the grill room at Fat Harold’s. You know right off you are in the right place when you are greeted with smiles and laughter. Sure sets the tone for the night. We started off with brief announcements and reminders so we could get to the super music played by Kitty Earles. At 6:30 we began serving the 160 people in attendance. Terry and crew fixed all the hams and turkeys to perfection.  All the delicious sides and dessert were catered by Boulineau’s, and they too were delicious. After dinner our 2021 Al Cain winner, Billy Powell, was announced and was congratulated by all. It was a fun filled evening with wonderful music, food, fanfare, and most of all wonderful smiling and laughing people.
