Letter From The President January 2016

Happy New Year ODSC Members!

I hope everyone had a safe and happy New Year! Now it is on to 2016! We have many events planned for 2016 and I hope each and every one of you can join us sometime this year.

Our first event for the year is of course, our monthly Business meeting. All of our business meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month at 6:00 p.m. in the backroom of Fat Harold’s. Our first meeting for 2016 will be on Tuesday, January 5th. I would encourage you to attend. It is a great way to become more involved with the club and to learn how the club operates.

Our second event is a new event! SHARE A SHAG STEP – On the second Tuesday of each month, a pair of our members will share one of their favorite shag steps with the rest of us! In January, we are excited that Kevin and Susan Harrell will be our instructors. So grab a partner and join us to learn a new step on Tuesday, January 12th at 6:00 p.m. in the backroom of Fat Harold’s.

The ACSC Mid-Winter dates are January 15th though the 17th. The ODSC will hold our Mid-Winter Brunch on Sunday, January 17th, 10:00 a.m. at the OD Arcade. Murl Augustine will be our DJ. I hope to see you at the Brunch.

One of the things that all the members enjoy is looking at our photos on the website. We are still looking for some photographers. If possible, we would like to have at least 2 photographers so they can share the fun and one member will not have to attend every event. If you are interested, please let me know via email mwpowell948@windstream.net or call me at 704-996-7032.

Our last event for January will be the Clean Sweep. It is an opportunity to do a good deed for the city. Bill and Joan Bacon and Tim and Paula Webb are our chairpersons for the Clean Sweep this year and I am sure they would love to have you attend and help out. The Clean Sweep will be held on Saturday, January 23rd at 8:30a.m. We will meet at the OD Pavilion. Food and drink will be provided.

I am looking forward to seeing you and working with you in 2016!
