On Friday, June 17th, the ODSC Board, Past President’s and Committee Chairpersons had the first annual New Member Social. The purpose of the social was to introduce new members to a smaller crowd and talk about what happens on each committee and hope they will get involved with the club. Sometimes as a new member, it is easy to get lost at a regular party.

As everyone entered the backroom of Fat Harold’s, they were asked to draw a name out of the box. For the most part, new members drew from one box and seasoned members drew names out of a different box. When the signal was given, everyone had to look for their couple match. For example, if you had the name of Little Red Riding Hood, you were looking for the person with the name of the Big Bad Wolf. At that time, you needed to find out something about your partner so if your name was drawn, you could introduce them. Based on all the laughter, it seems that everyone got into the spirit of the game! Several of the new members won prizes which consisted of ODSC logo items.

Lou Martino was taking photos of everyone for the yearbook. (Please go out and look at the Yearbook on our website. If you have a picture that you would like to use, please send it to Lou.)

Based on the feedback, our new members enjoyed the social and I saw quite a few of them at the party on Saturday.

Many thanks to Wendy Shultz for supplying the snacks. Tina Tomberlin and Billy Powell for manning the Hospitality Table and Lou Martino for helping me with the sound system and being the photographer.
