Letter From The President March 2016

It is the beginning of March and I, for one, am happy to hope that warmer weather in on the way! If you missed the Oyster Roast, you missed a great time. I want to thank Donnie Schultz and his partner in crime, Wendy Schultz for all their hard work. Listed below are the people who helped Donnie with the Oyster Roast! These folks set up the tent, cooked all day, set up the tables, garbage cans in the Arcade, broke down the tents, tables, took the oyster shells back to the recycle center…..in other words, they worked all day and half the night to make sure the rest of us had a good time. Be sure and thank them.

Donnie Schultz and Ronnie Rogers made the Chicken Bog and it was the best EVER! The OD Arcade was hopping. Cathy Jamiolkowski and her team of volunteers were surrounded by members purchasing new merchandise while Billy Powell and Rich Young were busy selling 50/50 tickets.

We have a busy month ahead of us. Our first beginning Shag Lesson starts on Thursday, March, 3rd. These lessons are free to members of the OD Shag Club and you do not need a partner. Our SASS (share a shag step) is on Tuesday, March 8th and of course, the St. Patrick’s Parade is on Saturday, March 12th.

Rumor has it that the March party will be a Chili Cook-off with cash prizes. Stay tuned for more details from Donnie and Wendy Schultz.   A note will be going out soon with all the details. This should be a fun time at Fat Harold’s, eating chili and dancing to our favorite songs.

The OD Shag Club will met on Monday, March 21st at Myrtle Manor to entertain the residents. If you have not attended in the past, you have missed a rewarding night. Joe Ferlauto has done an outstanding of coordinating an appearance by Elvis and some of the Junior Shaggers. Please join us at this event. You will have a great time.

Hope to see you on the dance floor!
