Letter from the President July 2016

I hope everyone has a great 4th of July. It is one of my favorite holidays. From the time I was about 8 years old and for many years after, our family celebrated the 4th of July at Myrtle Beach. I am from Kentucky, so it was a great treat to be at the beach! I did not know how to shag, but I loved to go and watch them at the Pavilion.

June was a very busy month for the ODSC and we have several exciting things scheduled for July! In June, we had our first new member social. It was fantastic! Please go out to the articles and read about the event! We also had a great time at Pirate’s Cove.

Lou Martino is hard at work on our Yearbook. Please go and look at our Yearbook on the website. If you have not yet participated, please send Lou a picture and the correct spelling of your name. We would like to have the entire membership of the Shag Club in our yearbook.

In July, we will help celebrate Jr. SOS with a brunch for the Juniors. The event will be held at Fat Harold’s. It is always wonderful to watch the dance we love being done by young people. It makes me believe it will live on in the future!

I am also looking forward to our Charity Fun Poker Run. If you have not participated, you do not know what you have missed. Donnie and Wendy Schultz have a great day planned and I hope you will be able to participate.

One of the most important things we do each year is nominate members for the Board and Officers. Our Nominating Committee is looking for a “few good men/women” to run for our officer and board positions. Please give this some thought and contact one of the committee if you would like to help your shag club.

I hope everyone has a great 4th of July and I hope to see you at our Business Meeting on Tuesday, July 5th.
