20180101 Secretary – Donna Williams
Hello everyone. I am Donna Williams and I am running for the Secretary position for 2018. My husband Burnie and I live in Waterfall in Little River. I am a South Carolina Realtor who loves and sells the North end of the Strand as well as being an onsite rep in Waterfall. The dance and the opportunity of the dance lifestyle is what brought us to this area full time in 2011 originally from VA by way of Ft Myers Fl. My career included running the business office and admission office of 2 medical facilities in Charlottesville VA and then 27 years there with the Social Security Office as an instructor, a claims specialist and retiring as a claims expert. I spent 5 years as a Re/Max agent in Fort Myers before moving to this area.
“All she wants to do is dance” is my passion. I have been a dancer as long as I can remember. Having 2 grandmothers who were champion dancers I grew up with music and the love of the dance in my soul. The dance is also what brought Burnie and I together in 2004. I have been a member of the Lynchburg VA Shag club, the Colonial Shag club and/or the OD shag club at different times since 2003. While living in Ft Myers, Burnie and I taught weekly shag classes for 18 months. At the end of the 18 months we were teaching 4 classes each week as the classes graduated to different levels. I was also teaching line dance classes during part of that time.
As an OD Shag club member, I have been working with Ways & Means, sold golf cart tickets, and am a member of the demo dance team. As members of the dance team, we do all that we can to promote the OD Shag club, the dance and the lifestyle. We dance most Wednesdays and Fridays at Fat Harold’s and make it a point to be ambassadors of the club to the many visitors that we meet. I am also beginning a 3rd 2 year term as a board member of the Waterfall Property Owners Association serving as Secretary/Treasurer. As the Secretary of the OD Shag Club, I hope to be able to serve the needs of the club and its members and to add to my ability to promote the club and preserve the dance and the wonderful lifestyle.
