We celebrated the first day of Spring with our March Drive Thru Saturday March 20, 2021. Though it did not feel much like we think of as Spring weather, it was a day of joy just seeing our members and fellow workers at another OD. Shag Club event. In spite of the wind, cold and rain it was a great day to be out and about and see all the great people we have missed so much. 148 people came through with their mask on to buy golf cart tickets and get their chicken and goodies barbecued by Terry and crew and served by our great volunteers. Thanks to all who attended, bought tickets and shared their smiles and laughter with all of us who were so delighted to see them. Until next time, stay safe and be well.

Golf Cart Ticket Sales
Hello O.D.S.C Members
The Golf Cart Committee set up shop on March 12 and 13 outside of Graham’s Golf Cart Store. (See attached pictures) Thank you to Mike Graham for his continued support. Also, many thanks to Dolly McDermott, Anita and Wayne Baldwin, and Monica and Billy Powell for volunteering to help us out. They all did a really great job. We always need volunteers. For the two days we sold a total of 454 tickets. Thanks to those of you who stopped by to purchase tickets. We still have a very long way to go. With your support we will sell our 3,500 tickets.
This Saturday, March 20, we will be selling tickets at the chicken dinner drive thru. As a reminder, be sure to bring your return address stickers to attach to your purchased tickets. You then will only need to write down your telephone number. This will speed up the process. Tickets are only $5.00.

I would like to give a special thank you to Jim Sterner for providing the music on Saturday for the drive-thru. Jim contacted me and volunteered to play Christmas music for the 2 hour drive thru. He is a new member and his music put all of us in the Christmas spirit!
I would like to give some special thanks to our Christmas Family Chairperson, Karen Young, and her team of Jean Brandt and Rich Young for helping shop for clothes and toys for our seven kids. It was quite a lot of work to find the items the children requested. Karen & Jean also wrapped all the gifts. It took hours to complete the wrapping not to mention the shopping. The ODSC is going to provide these kids with a wonderful Christmas.
On Sunday, the following volunteers helped sort and box up all the food to be given to the families of the kids: Joe and Beth Cornwall, Wayne Baldwin, Rick Kosko, Sue Wehner, Lori and John Setzer, Donna and Bernie Williams, Rich & Karen Young, and Monica Powell.
Monday, we delivered the food and gifts to the school where the parents will pick them up. Karen & Rich Young, Wayne Baldwin, Lori and John Setzer, Donna and Bernie Williams and I also delivered the surplus food to North Strand Helping Hands to help other families in need. Again, thanks to all of you.
Below is a picture of the quantity of food and Christmas gifts for our families. It was awesome! Thank you so much.
Merry Christmas to our wonderful shag family,
