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.

We had right at 200 members and guests attend our Thanksgiving/Re-Up Party on November 21st at Duck’s Beach Club. 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.

The Christmas Parade will be held on Saturday December 5th at 5:30pm. We will need to arrive no later than 5pm. It looks like good weather!! See the emails sent out by Billy Powell to get more information.

At 6pm on December 7th, the ODSC will be going to Myrtle Beach Manor to entertain the residents. The club will be providing Christmas gifts from Santa, snacks, dancing and singing Christmas Carols. They look forward to our visit all year, so please make arrangements to attend!!!

Our Christmas Party at Fat Harold’s is on December 12th, starting at 6pm. We will be collecting can goods along with nonperishable items for donation to less fortunate families. Ray Scott will be our DJ for the night and the Food Committee is already hard at work preparing a festive dinner.

Merry Christmas and Keep dancing my friends!!!!!
