Presidents Letter July 2014

OD Shag Club PresidentLetter from the President – July 2014

The spirit of Patriotism was definitely in the air for our June party at Fat Harold’s. Our entertainment committee led by Linda Campbell put on another great show. It was great to see how many of our members did their part to serve our country over the years. Every branch of the services was represented. The food committee did a wonderful job, also and serving the food made the lines go much quicker. We also added seven new members to our club that night.

July brings Junior SOS to town. The club will provide breakfast on the last Sunday morning, July 20th at the Junior SOS Gospel Hour for the Junior Shaggers and their families. We usually have over 200 attend this breakfast so we need our members to help provide breakfast casseroles and fruit to help supplement the breakfast sandwiches and pastries the club provides. Please bring your casseroles or fruits to Fat Harold’s by 9:30 AM. These Jr. Shaggers are the club’s future so we need to show them how glad we are that they are continuing to promote the shag.

July also brings our annual Poker Run organized by Jim Queen on July 26th. Golf Carts, motorcycles, and cars are all welcome to participate. It will start at the OD Arcade. Jim will be providing a list of all the stops and more information by e-mail later this month.

It is time to start thinking about how you want to participate in club activities. We will need people willing to run for offices and will need volunteers to chairman or serve on the various committees for 2015. If you are new to the club, volunteering to work on a committee is a great way to meet and get to know other members of the club. The duties of each office and committee are listed in the By-Laws on our website. The nominating committee has been formed so contact one of them if you are willing to serve. Attend our board meeting on the 1st Tuesday of every month at Fat Harold’s at 6 PM in the back room. All members of the club are welcome to attend.

I hope you are all enjoying your summer so far. Be safe in your travels and activities and join in our upcoming events.

ODSD 2014 President
