THANK YOU, THANK YOU and THANK YOU, to all the members of the club who came out and attended this event. You not only attended, your participation and interaction with the residents MADE THE EVENING THE SUCCESS IT WAS.

A special thanks to Pat Folds and her junior shaggers who were a big hit with the residents, Jon Harris who volunteered his services as photographer, Jimmy Buffkin who was our DJ for the evening, Paul and Gail Craver, Bill and Sheila Seymore, John Barringer and last but not least Bill and Diane Millman, aka Santa and Christmas Carol.

I know I have said this in the past, but I will say it one more time “THIS WAS THE BEST MB MANOR CHRISTMAS EVENT THE CLUB HAS EVER PUT ON”.  The participation by the members and the residents was exceptional.  The smiles on the faces of the residents, was very heart warming, and I thank each and every one of you.  In all the years that I have been the MB Manor Chair I have never seen the participation, smiles and gratitude by the residents, as I did last night.

In closing, I can only say THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

On October 22, 2018 the Dance Team was invited by Cathy Altman, Executive Director to demonstrate and instruct the Shag Dance at the North Myrtle Beach Area Historical Museum at 10:15AM on 2ndAve North.

The group (approximately 20 in number) we danced for Winding River Historical Society from Bolivia, NC were so willing to learn the dance that they spent more time with the dance team than they were given to learn. They were very receptive and encouraging to participate.

It was a great time and pleasure to be able to dance with the mural in the background of the legends of the Shag Dance at the Museum.

After Linda Campbell our spokesperson gave the history and origin of the Shag Dance, she introduced the Dance Team Members. Each member danced their style for one and a half minutes. We also showed how to switch partners so the spectators could see that you don’t need a partner to be able to dance if they did not have a regular partner. They were all invited to come to Fat Harold’s when they were in the area.

I would like to thank the dance team members who took their time to participate in this event: Back row: Rich and Cathy Jamiolkowski, Lori and John Setzer, Diane and Bill Millman, Callie White and Ted Sobol. Front row: Lou Martino, Cathy Altman and Linda Campbell.

ODSC Foundation Charity Golf Tournament

Sunday October 7ththe OD Shag Club Foundation hosted the 28thannual Charity Golf Tournament at the Valley at Eastport Golf Club.  For the first time in event history the tourney had to be rescheduled due to Hurricane Florence.  Even with the change of date we still had over 80 golfers participate!  The day brought beautiful blue skies, temperatures in the mid 80’s and a couple of quick downpours but all in all it was a great day for raising money for local charities.

Kudos to the Golf Tournament Committee for basically planning two tournaments this year.  Glenn Strange, Ken Myer, Bob Miller, Terry McCoy, Donna Strange, Karen Young and Monica Powell had worked very hard in planning the tournament to be held during SOS, but because of Hurricane Florence they had to contact everyone to postpone the tournament.  As soon as power was restored and roads were opened they got together and starting planning a make-up date.  They did a fantastic job contacting all golfers, volunteers and vendors to reschedule the event.  There is always a lot of hard work in making this event a success but this year the committee worked doubly hard and we REALLY appreciate all their time and effort!!!

As with any event there is so much behind the scenes work.  It takes many volunteers to pull off something of this magnitude so let me give a big shout out to the following:
