Letter From The President July 2015

Happy Independence Day!!!!

I hope everyone has a fun and safe holiday weekend.

On June 13th Harold Worley, Ray Scott and all the staff at Fat Harold’s hosted a beautiful Celebration of Life Ceremony for our friend and ODSC founder, Harold Bessent. Of course, it was to a packed house and I so enjoyed hearing all the stories told about his extraordinary life.

We had a small gathering at Swillie’s on June 27th and played some corn hole, had some snacks, along with a little social time. Thanks to Terry McCoy for heading up the corn hole tournament and Lou Martino for taking pictures.

 Members please attend our ODSC Board Meeting on Tuesday July 7th at 6PM at Fat Harold’s Beach Club.

Our Jr. SOS Brunch will be held on Sunday July 19th at 10am at Fat Harold’s Beach Club. Members are asked to bring pastries, casseroles, fruit, etc. We need your help to provide a wonderful experience for our amazing Jr. dancers.

The Poker Run is on Saturday July 25th at 1pm. The run will start at the OD Arcade and will end with our last stop being at Fat Harold’s. Come one come all, this is a fun day and is not limited to ODSC Members. Prizes will be given away at every stop. You can ride your golf carts or whatever transportation you may have.

Don’t forget your Cruise to Nowhere tickets!! We will be sailing out on August 21st at 6pm. There are only 100 tickets available, please contact Helen Eckhart. You can bring your own coolers, but no glass containers and appetizers will be provided.

Saturday, August 22nd we will be having our Nomination Party at Fat Harold’s. The Nominating Committee will soon be talking to members about the new board for 2016. Nominations will be accepted from the floor at this event. If you have suggestions or opinions, along with the board next year, we would love to hear them. We really need to keep the club moving forward. The food committee is going to have a special treat for us and they will need volunteers to make it happen.

SOS Fun Monday Tickets are available!!! The tickets sales allow us to continue to have a Fun Sunday and Fun Monday. There is also a contest to award the shag club that sells the most tickets, and because we are the largest club, we need to win this. If you are interested in helping sell tickets, please contact me.

We have our Annual ODSC Fall SOS Charity Golf Tournament on Saturday, September 19th. Please mark your calendars and join us for a great golf outing. We will need some help with this event, so please see any board member and volunteer.
