Letter From The President June 2015
Hope everyone had a wonderful month of May and Memorial Day!!
Thanks to all that attended our 2nd Annual Cookout on May 16th. We owe it to Donnie Schultz., Jim Queen, Faye Chowning and Susan Harrell for preparing all the food, Terry McCoy heading up the Corn Hole Tournament and all that participated in making this a success.
The Dance Team will be doing a demonstration at the Pelican’s Baseball Stadium on June 6th and if you are not able to attend, keep a lookout for the pictures on the website.
Our Fish Fry Party at Pirates Cove on June 13th 6pm, HAS BEEN CANCELLED OUT OF RESPECT FOR FAT HAROLD.
We are now selling Fun Monday Tickets and as a member of A.C.S.C., we need to support this event. The Fun Monday drawing was started as a way to finance the events of Fun Monday. The drawing generates the income that pays for all the activities. There is no charge for people to attend the events of Fun Monday. It only takes you $10.00 to make you eligible to be in the drawing. The first ticket drawn wins $7,500, the second wins $2,000, the third wins $1,000, the fourth wins $500, and the fifth and final ticket wins $ 250. After all the bills are paid there is a donation made to Caring For Kids which is the chosen charity for the Fun Monday Enhancement Committee. The Caring for Kids charity is a great organization that helps a lot of kids. There are 100 tickets dispersed to each shag club that attends the A.C.S.C meeting at the spring S.O.S. The representative that receives the tickets then takes the tickets back to the club for the members to buy or sell all the tickets. If you would like to have a chance at winning, please contact me by email.
We lost a great man on May 22, 2015, our Fat Man. Harold Bessent started the OD Shag Club in 1982 and he was a great supporter of the club, shag dancing and beach music until the day he passed. Words cannot express how much he will be missed. A Celebration of Life will be held at Fat Harold’s Beach Club will be held on June 13th at 4pm.
