Wow, it has been over a year, but we are finally back in action!! The club met at Fat Harold’s in Ocean Drive and everyone had their fill of wonderful pizza cooked by Main Slice in OD. Thank you, Paulette and your crew, for food set-up and arrangement. The cake was also very good.  

A tremendous turnout of 163 people enjoyed the night. John Setzer President, opened the meeting with welcomes, discussed the 50/50 drawing, golf cart ticket sales, and the brunch on June 20 at the Arcade. Linda Campbell gave the prayer.

Thank everyone for coming out as it was great seeing the Shag Club friends. Dennis Brumble and Jimmy Buffkin did a great job providing the music. See you at the brunch!

I want to publicly thank the 22 club members who scheduled and worked shifts at the Little River Crab Festival. This group stepped to the plate and committed to covering the needed shifts. While we had other members, who supported us by coming by and buying tickets, offering breaks etc. —these were the club members who got it done. We sold 671 raffle tickets during the festival.  I am proud of the work that this group did to sell tickets, help with tent take down, take pictures, demo shag dance basics and otherwise promote our club.  We gave out over 40 membership applications for the club and talked to lots of people who are interested in learning to shag. I truly believe that our volunteers are the backbone of the OD Shag Club.  We enjoyed working with this team and want to recognize the work that they did.  When you see them please say thank you?

On April 22, 2021 at 10:00 am the sun was shining brightly on the beach, but the wind was blowing a bitter cold breeze.  However, more than 180 people were gathering with their chairs, blankets, hot drinks on the beach straight out from the horseshoe. They were waiting for a word of comfort, a song of encouragement and a time of reflection as the Memorial service began.

 Linda Campbell, Board Member and 2018 Past President welcomed everyone there and then opened the service with a prayer.  She then explained that there would be a reading of the names of the members of the OD Shag Club that were lost during 2020 and 2021 and a RED rose would be placed in the vase representing each name that was read.  Also, being read would be the names of “Friends” of the OD Shag Club and a YELLOW rose would be placed in the vase to represent them.  John Setzer, President of the ODSC read the names of the OD Shag Club and Judy Caulder, Hospitality Chair read the names of the Friends.

Linda Campbell read a poem “THE DASH”.

Christina Cooper Black was introduced and sang her version of Carrie Underwood’s “How Great Thou Art”. 

Paulette Miller, Food Committee Co-Chair then invited everyone to help themselves to Ham biscuits, veggie tray and cookies while they continued to fellowship with each other.

Lou Martino, Dance Team Co-Chair, provided the music for the service.

The beautiful vase of flowers and a framed print of the memorial names was taken to Fat Harold’s to be on displayed for their Re-opening set for that afternoon.

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.

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.
