Letter from the President June 2016

Well, May was a very exciting and busy month for the shag club and June appears to be shaping up for some of the same!

We had a fantastic party in May! It was our annual cookout at Saville’s on Second. Kitty Earles keep the tunes going and she played a little something for everyone. Many thanks to Kathy McCoy for teaching the fireball line dance. Now we are asking her to teach “Uptown Funk”. The Food Committee led by Donnie Schultz, once again did a fantastic job! Donnie and his team actually started preparing for us around 2:00 in the afternoon and did not finish until the last of the excess food was donated around 10:30 at night. Please take the time to thank Donnie, Wendy Schultz, Jim Queen, Wanda Queen, Kevin Harrell and Susan Harrell!

Also, at the party, we had a cornhole tournament. Our 2016 ODSC Cornhole Club Champions……drumroll, please…….Joe Ferlauto and Clark Chowning! Congratulations to both of them. Everyone had a good time playing cornhole. Thanks to Terry McCoy for being the Cornhole Director.

Now on to June! We will finish our second Beginner Dance Class on June 2nd. Now, we will have 2 graduating classes under our belt. I will let you know when the next class is starting. Our Business Meeting will be held on Tuesday, June 7th at Fat Harold’s. Our SASS (share a shag step) will be on Tuesday, June 14th. Terry and Kathy McCoy will be our instructors for the new step. Even though it is not a club sponsored event, Fat Harold’s will be having a Camp Kemo event on Saturday, June 11th and I hope you can attend. The ODSC will be hosting a New Member Social on Friday, June 17th to introduce the new members to the Board, Committee Chairs and Past Presidents. Hopefully, they will make some new friends and volunteer for a few committees. Our party will be at Pirate’s Cove on Saturday, June 18th. I am not sure what Donnie has in mind yet, but I am sure it will be wonderful!

A couple of quick reminders…..the ODSC Charity Golf Tournament is gearing up and they need help getting hole sponsors, raffle prizes and golfers. Also, we are still selling Golf Cart Raffle tickets. The proceeds from this raffle helps to fund all the fun things we do. If you think you can sell some tickets, call Billy Powell and he will get some tickets to you.

Hope to see you on the dance floor soon!
