A response From Karen Young

I would like to thank the shag club members for my nomination for the Al Cain award and the Board Members for choosing me for the award.  I was surprised and honored by this designation.  The OD Shag Club has been our second family since we moved to the beach.  I have enjoyed volunteering for the different committees and have made so many friends in the process. I plan to remain active in the Shag Club events in the years to come as the rewards for doing so are countless.

Sincerely,

Karen Young

The Joy of Christmas is giving. We would like to thank all the members who brought food for the two needy families that the OD Shag Club adopted for Christmas. The two families had a total of eight children for whom we were able to provide Christmas presents and brighten their holiday. I also would like to thank Cindy Day for helping me to shop for the Christmas gifts; those members who worked so hard to sort the donated food for the two families; Bill and Joan Bacon for hosting the sorting job and Wendy and Donnie Schultz, Peggy Christie, and Rich Young who delivered the items to the school. It warms our hearts to be able to do this each year and provide a Christmas for families who need our help.

2015 Christmas at the Manor

Myrtle Beach Manor Annual Christmas Visit December 7th 2015

I would like to start off by saying thank you to all the members of the OD Shag Club who came out and participated in this special evening. The residents of the Manor, and there were many in attendance, were so thoroughly entertained that by nights end everyone was still in their seats.

The night started off with the OD Shag Club Dance Team, doing a couple of group dances. Linda Campbell, Lou Martino and Lenny Gardner then entertained the residents with a three-person dance. Lenny told a few jokes. The woman of the Club then proceeded to give out the brooches that the club provided. Cookies and punch were distributed while the brooches were pined on the lady residents. The party continued as yours truly cranked up the music and we danced with most the residents.

Paul Craver arrived and entertained the residents with two beautiful songs “Make the World Go Away”, and “White Christmas”. As Paul sang these songs he worked the room looking into the faces and holding hands with many the lady residents, he certainly made them feel special. Thank you Paul.

Linda Campbell and Lou Martino, who dressed as toy soldiers, came out and proceeded to march up and down the room, than stood at attention as Santa (Bob Sanders) made his entrance. Santa personally greeted each and every resident as the members of the club were distributing the presents.

We were than entertained by Sheila and Bill Blazer, who are participants in the 2016 National Shag Championship. Sheila and Bill gave us a preview of their dance routine for the Nationals and the residents were in complete awe.

The members, along with Santa than danced and sang with the residents, we had a group sing-a-long and we closed with everyone singing “GOD BLESS AMERICA”

All in all it was a very good evening both for the residents of the Manor as well as the members of the club.

A special thank you goes to Jon Harris, our Master of ceremony for the evening.

Until next year, this is Joe Ferlauto, your Myrtle Beach Manor Chair, saying thank you and may each and every one of you have a very Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year.

2015 Christmas Parade 01

What a beautiful night for a parade! There was not a rain cloud in the sky, but there was a chill in the air. It felt like Christmas! We had 102 people that were in the finest Christmas outfits for the parade and 29 golf carts that were decorated from roof to the tires. What a great turnout! We had 2 toys soldiers to hold our banner to lead the OD Shag Club through the NMB parade then we had the walkers to hand out candy and beads to the children. Everyone did a great job. The OD Shag Club was escorted out by a giant 4-car train; then all the colorful and decorated golf carts followed. It was a great time for everyone that was in the parade……MERRY CHRISTMAS TOO ALL OF THE OD SHAG CLUB MEMEBERS.

The Ellen Taylor Foundation for Junior Shaggers (ETFJS) was founded in 2007 by Mrs. Ellen Taylor. The purpose of the ETFJS is to remove financial barriers that prevent those under 21 from learning and participating in the shag dance. Examples of this include providing free dance shoes, funding workshops, and providing meal, lodging, and gas vouchers for shag dance events such as Junior SOS at North Myrtle Beach. Our club was was proud to present a $500.00 donation to Ellen Taylor Foundation.

Letter From the President December 2015

It has been a great 2015!!! This will be my last letter and it has been an honor to serve as your President. I can’t express enough to you how much I appreciate the Board, Committee Chairs and Members that have given their time and energy to ODSC, making this a wonderful experience.

On November 19th at Fat Harold’s, the Board and a few club member met for the Charity Donations. The club was able to help the Hall of Fame Foundation, Ellen Taylor Foundation, North Strand Helping Hands, NMB Explorers, NMB Humane Society and Teen Angles. The members work very hard every year at the Charity Golf Tournament to provide these funds. Earlier in the year it also provided funds for Junior SOS and Camp Kemo.

Thanks to Paul Craver for being our DJ for the evening and Duck’s for closing their business to the public and giving us a venue for our event. Donnie Schultz, Jim Queen and Faye Chowning, along with many volunteers, did a fantastic job preparing and serving the Turkey, Ham and Dressing.
