Hello ODSC Members,

Saturday, January 20th, a near record group of 29 members of the OD Shag Club braved the cold to turn out at Deckerz at 8:30 AM for our annual Mid-Winter Clean Sweep!  After enjoying some of Hardee’s finest biscuits and Dunkin Donuts coffee, the group managed to collect 30 bags of trash and refuse from the streets and parking lots of North Myrtle Beach from the intersection of US 17 and Main to Ocean Blvd and from Main Street to 5th Ave North and South on Ocean Blvd.  We were pleased to see a lot of new members turn out as well as a lot of the usual suspects. 

For those of you who have never come to a Clean Sweep, you may not believe it, but we do have a good time! For any of you who have stopped coming, if your health permits, I think you might enjoy coming back! Sometimes it pays to participate as New Member Paulette Custer found $10.00!

We hope as many members as possible are able to come to our next Clean Sweep which is presently scheduled for Cinco de Mayo which is the first Saturday after Spring SOS.

Mid Winter SOS Brunch

Nancy Sook

A fabulous time was had by all 232(209 members, 9 guests,8 junior shaggers and 6 others in their party) at the midwinter brunch held at the od arcade, Sunday, January 14, 2018. 

We danced to tunes played by the crazy as ever, Murl Augustine, drank adult beverages and dined on a delicious brunch of scrambled eggs, grits, bacon, sausage, biscuits and fruit prepared by the staff of the arcade.

We all watched and cheered as the junior shaggers awed us with their moves. 

Then hoped our numbers would be called, but the winners were: name tag, Kathy Jamiolkowski, logo, Becki Roberts and the 50/50 winner of $288 was Ed Shiflett. Ed kindly donated his money to the junior shaggers.  

The club’s half of $287 was donated to the junior shaggers along with a bucket full of money. 

A special guest, Svein-arne Nordkvelle from Norway, where he has his own shag club of  25 members, was introduced. Too soon it was noon, Murl finished and we’ll be back for spring safari.

Christmas Families

This year, the OD Shag Club sponsored 8 kids from four families for Christmas. The club donated $850 and the dance team added another $505 to make this a wonderful Christmas for these families. The Fifth Avenue group again donated a boy’s bicycle and accessories for one of our needy kids. Cindy Day, Cassie Shumway and Karen Young did all the shopping and were able to get almost everything on the kid’s wish lists. Each child got at least two new outfits and toys from their wish lists. Cindy, Cassy and Karen wrapped all the gifts.

The food that was donated at the Christmas Party was sorted Sunday morning at Rich and Karen’s home. 13 members showed up to help divide up the food for the four families. The money donated was used to buy turkeys, hams and other perishables for each family.

Monday morning, Terry McCoy, Glenn Strange and Rich and Karen Young delivered the food and gifts to Riverside Elementary School. Thanks to all who donated either food or money to help make this a special Christmas for these families.

Don and Judy Thomas also donated a girl’s bike which will be given to another child from the school that needs one.
