Letter From the President February 2016

Welcome to February and for the Panthers fans…keep pounding and for the OD Shag Club members…Keep Dancing! We will have several opportunities to keep dancing this month. The first opportunity will be to join Sonny and Tina Tomberlin at our SASS event (Share a Shag Step) at Fat Harold’s in the backroom on Tuesday, February 9th. We are still working on beginner lessons for ODSC members. I will keep you posted.

On Saturday, February 20th, the Donnie Schultz and Team World Famous Oyster Roast will take place at the OD Arcade at 6:00 p.m. You don’t want to miss this. If you are not a big fan of oysters, there will be a delicious Chicken Bog and of course, lots of socializing with all your ODSC friends. Our DJ will be Bill Anderson. Linda Morrison will be taking membership applications and selling SOS cards. Our Ways and Means Team, Cathy and Connie, have some great new apparel for sale!

Looking back to January, I have two big announcements! Paul Harrison was named one of the five ACSC ICON winners for 2015. An Icon Winner is someone who has made significant contribution to his or her Shag Club and to the Shag Community. I believe we can all say with a resounding “YES”, Paul Harrison is someone who has made significant contributions to the ODSC.

The second announcement is 2016 is the last year that Wendy Schultz will be the parade chairman for the ODSC. You ask, why is that? Well, They received a promotion! Wendy and Donnie Schultz will be the SOS Parade Chairmen for the SOS Parade starting in 2017! Isn’t that exciting! It is a great honor for them and a great honor for the ODSC to have such wonderful and experienced people in our club that the SOS Board felt they would be the perfect Chairman going forward!

If you missed the brunch, you missed a great time! The Junior National Shag Dance Team entertained us and they were fantastic! They travel to competitions all over the USA to preserve and promote shag dancing. Check out their Facebook page or website! It was wonderful to see how they represent us all over the USA!

Well enough for now, I hope to see you at SASS and at the Oyster Roast!
