Letter From The President January 2015


Letter From The President January 2015

by Wendy Schultz

Welcome to 2015!!!

I hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Year’s with family and friends. It’s hard to believe a new year has begun and what a year it will be. We are planning to have a wonderful 2015 with fun parties, good friends, lots of laughs and may we all dance!!!

Thanks so much to Karen Young, the 2014 Officers, Board Members, Committee Chairs and all the Worker Bees, for a terrific year. I would also like to thank Karen for working so hard to help me prepare to be your President this year.

Our first Party will be our Brunch during the Mid-Winter / Winter Workshop on Sunday January 18th, 10am at the OD Arcade and Lounge. Chris and his crew will be hard at work to assure a good time is had by all. Please remember to thank them when you get a chance.

“The World Famous Oyster Roast” on February 21st at 6pm and will also be at the OD Arcade and Lounge. We will have chicken bog for those of you that do not eat oysters. This is a huge process and to make it look easy, Donnie Schultz will need many worker bees for a variety of duties. Please contact him if you are able to volunteer your time.

The Luck of the Irish Party will be on March 21st, 6pm at Fat Harold’s Beach Club. Bring your best side dish or dessert (doesn’t have to be Irish) for members to enjoy and the Club will be providing the Beef!! When bringing food, we ask that you please arrive early (by 5:30) to allow time to arrange table setting.

Everyone is invited and encouraged to attend the Board Meetings on the first Tuesday of every month. I look forward to hearing ideas and appreciate any and all participation from our ODSC Members. I’m excited to serve as your President as well as working with the Board to give you a great year!!

South Strand Cardiac Rehab

South Strand Cardiac Rehab

by Diane Tindall


Very Cool – The South Strand Cardiopulmonary Rehab staff (Patty Mielke, Diane Tindall, and Gail Dowling) host a holiday party for their patients each year. They plan the event for months, coordinate on their own time, decorate and provide entertainment for the patients…again, on their own time and with their own resources, and do so with absolute joy. The patients and staff brought pot-luck and enjoyed fellowship with each other as they gathered at the MB Base Recreation Center. One lady in attendance is actively awaiting a lung transplant. Last night, 90 (patients/family) joined the South Strand Rehab staff and the OD Shag Club to celebrate life! One of the South Strand patients is also in the Shag Club…he is 92 years young! One of the patients’ husband was Santa Claus as “Yes, Virginia, There is a Santa” was read. Here’s some pictures from the event:

Response From Cardiac Rehab

Dance Team,

Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for coming to make the night enjoyable for our patients. They will be talking about “The Dancers” for months. What a great thing to bring some fun and excitement into their lives. Thanks again.

Christmas Parade

Christmas Parade

by Wendy Schultz

It was a beautiful day for a Parade, well that is until we got on Main St. The rain did hold out long enough for everyone to decorate, take pictures and share lots of love and laughs with friends prior to the parade starting. The golf carts where decorated with lights, garland and ornaments, everyone was dressed in all their Christmas attire. That Whoville group was a hoot and very entertaining with The Grinch and his dog Max!! The kids went wild!! A big thanks goes to Paul Harrison (ODSC Past President 2005) for helping me carry the Banner and get all the windshield flyers on the carts. Donnie and his worker bees did another great job making sure all the candy was given out.

We had 16 golf carts and 8 walkers, with a total of 66 people. Thanks to all that participated.
Thank you OD Shag Club, not bad for a rainy night!!

Lastly, I have enjoyed being Parade Chair since 2009 and we made some wonderful memories. Your new Parade Chair for 2015 will be Billy Powell. He and his wife, Monica (Vice President 2015) were involved with the Monroe Shag Club as Parade Chair for years and will do a fantastic job.

Thanks for a great ride!!

Presidents Letter for December 2014


Well, December has arrived and it heralds my last letter as OD Shag Club President for 2014. It has been both a challenging and a rewarding year. I want to thank all my board members and committee chairpersons for their support the past year.

Our first event this month is our visit to Myrtle Beach Manor to entertain the residents on Monday, December 8th from 6-8 PM. Members are welcome to join us and help us put smiles on the faces of the residents. This is an annual event and members who have participated have found it very rewarding.

Our OD Shag Club Christmas Party is Saturday, December 13th at 6 PM at Fat Harold’s Beach Club. The meal is being catered by T-Bonz. The Club is sponsoring 4 families with a total of 13 children this year for Christmas. We will be collecting non-perishable food items for these families at the party. Please make sure these items do not have expired dates. Let’s make sure they have a wonderful Christmas this year.

We will also be putting up for silent auction a framed limited edition print by Vic Gillespie. It is number 58 of 500. Minimum bid is $75 and bids will be in $5 increments. This would make a wonderful Christmas present for someone. Bring cash or your checkbook so you can bid on it.

Please give your 2015 President, Wendy Schultz, and her board your support next year. A club is only as good as the members who put forth an effort to make it so. Get involved and make new friends. You will not regret it!

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and may the New Year bring you only joy!

Karen Young

ODSC President 2014
