On Saturday, March 12, 2016, the club was well represented in the NMB St. Patrick’s Day Parade by 110 of its members. Twenty-six golf carts were beautifully decorated and carried 106 members donned out in their St. Patrick Day apparel. Thanks to Cathy and Bob Sanders for carrying our banner. I am happy to report that the OD Shag Club won Second Place in the Non-Profit division of the parade!! Way to go Wendy and Donnie Schultz for organizing our troop for the parade. Special thanks also to Susan Harrell for helping to sign in participants, Tina Tomberlin and Monica Powell for helping to pass out beads, and Pat Harris for taking photographs. I am always so proud to see how creative our members are with their golf cart decorations and costumes! You didn’t let me down this year!! A fun time was had by all!

Billy Powell also had a booth set up at the festival for the golf cart fundraiser that turned out to be a big success. Two hundred forty-three tickets were sold. Thanks go out to Rich Young, Sonny Tomberlin, Brian Schmitt, Debbie Schmitt, Lou Garrenton, Bill Anderson, Elaine Powers, Jerry Harrell, Bill Sawyer, and Jon Haris for helping to man the booth and be such great sales people. Thank you Billy! Another great day for the OD Shag Club!
