Monday morning, a group of OD Shag Club members delivered the gifts and food to Riverside Elementary School for our sponsored Christmas kids.  The group included Bill Bacon, Rich Young, Lou Martino, John Setzer, Mike Bejzak and Karen Young.  The kid’s parents were called by the school counselor, Felicia Bellamy, to come and pick up the items. 

After leaving the school, we went out to North Strand Helping Hands to deliver the remaining food boxes. They weighed them in at 594 pounds.  They were very happy to get the food as there is a huge demand at this time of year.  Thank you to all those who either brought food or donated money at the Shag Club Party Saturday night.  The money was used to buy a turkey and ham for each family plus the other items needed for a nice Christmas dinner for each family.  Your generosity was greatly appreciated by the families who already gave thank you cards for the Shag Club to the school counselor.  I picked those up today and will bring them to the January Business Meeting.

The OD Shag Club sponsored 8 kids for Christmas with items from their wish lists.  Jeanne Brandt and Karen Young shopped for the toys and wrapped them on Monday.  Then on Friday, the 13th, Cindy Day, Beth Cornwell, Tina Tomberlin and Karen Young shopped for the clothing on their lists and wrapped it all. We were able to get a winter jacket, an outfit, and extra pair of pants, shoes, underwear and socks for each child with Cindy Day’s discount at Belk’s.  Bill and Joan Bacon donated one bike and Sonny and Tina Tomberlin plus Rich and I donated the second bike.

The food donated at the party was sorted by a group of OD Shag Club members at Bill and Joan’s house on Sunday morning.  The helpers included Bill and Joan Bacon, Angela (Joan’s daughter) and Tom Weiss, Donna and Burnie Williams, John and Lori Setzer, Linda Campbell, Sandy Cummings, Lou Garrenton, Terry Holmes, Mike and Bonnie Bejzak, Gene Bradshaw, Charles McCarthy and Rich and Karen Young.

The toys, gifts and 8 boxes of food including a ham and turkey were loaded in the van for delivery to the school on Monday morning.  The remaining food was boxed up for delivery to North Stand Helping Hands on Monday, also.

If you remember, the ODSC & ODSC Foundation sponsored a Charity Golf Tournament in September.  The net proceeds were the highest recorded for the club.  Many, many thanks to our Committee Chairs, Larry Jones, Ken Meyers, Karen Young, Bob Miller and Terry McCoy for all your hard work!

Last night, the Boards and several members were able to present the rewards of all the hard work to numerous local charities at Fat Harold’s.  The charities included North Strand Helping Hands, Junior SOS, Teen Angels, NMB Explorers, Ellen Taylor Foundation and Special Olympics.

It was a pleasure to talk with each of the charities and to be a part of a Club that wants to not only have a good time, socialize and dance, but likes to give back to the community!  Thank you to everyone that worked the Tournament and collected donations for the raffle prizes!  It takes a large group led by our fantastic Chairmen’s to pull this off!
