Letter from the President February 2015

We had a great January but we are just getting started. We will be doing new (and old) things throughout the year, so make sure you do not miss a minute of it. I am very proud and excited about the Committee Chairs and I’m looking forward to what they have planned. Everyone is invited and encouraged to attend the Board Meetings on the first Tuesday of every month. The next one is on February 3rd and I look forward to hearing your ideas and appreciate any and all participation from our ODSC Members.

The ACSC Winter Workshop was during the Mid-Winter Event for the first time and the ODSC was represented by Wendy Schultz (President), Monica Powell (Vice President), Tina Tomberlin (Secretary), Karen Young (Past President) and Terry McCoy (Fund Raiser Committee Chair). The theme of the event was “Ladies and Gentlemen…Start Your Engines”. It was very inspiring and the ODSC Board will be working on some future ideas to make our club better in 2015.

The Mid-Winter Brunch was a great time and we so appreciate all the hard work that Chris and his crew do for the OD Shag Club. The food is always good and the Board did a terrific job serving it. Murl played some wonderful music and the Entertainment Committee taught a line dance called the Beach Boogie.

The Clean Sweep was very successful despite the postponement due to rain and a cold morning the day of the event. The coffee was hot, the biscuits were fresh and they had thank you gifts for all that attended. Make sure you mark you calendars for the Spring Clean Sweep on May 2nd at 8:30am. They are planning something special for you.

February 21st is the “ODSC Famous Oyster Roast” 6pm at the OD Arcade and Lounge. We will have chicken bog for those of you that do not eat oysters. Donnie and his worker bees will assure that everyone has plenty of food. Beth Cornwell with Ways & Means has received her “Oyster Roast” shirts and they can be purchased for $20 each at the event.

Come join the fun!!! It’s almost time for the St. Patrick’s Day Parade on Saturday March 14th at 9am. The club will be providing beads for all that participate…you’ll LOVE it!!

The St. Patrick’s Day celebration will continue into the next weekend and on Saturday March 21st when we will be having the “Luck of the Irish “ Party, 6pm at Fat Harold’s Beach Club. The club will be providing the meat and rolls and you bring your best Irish side dish or dessert and wear your crazy hats, beads and all your green!!

Thank you !!!

Wendy Schultz
