Letter from the President March 2015
Well, February is over and I hope that means the cold weather is too. March is the month when we get an additional hour of daylight on the 8th and the first day of Spring is on the 20th. I’m ready to get some warm temperatures around here.
Another terrific Oyster Roast!! Thanks to all the 200 plus members that attended. A big thank you goes to the OD Arcade for letting us come in and pretty much take over the place for a few hours. They are all wonderful people, they make sure we are taken care of at all times. Donnie Schultz and the all the guys did a great job from start to finish, along with help from Faye Chowning and Dolly McDermott. The oysters were bought from Berry’s Seafood and the Chicken Bog was made by Jack at Harold’s. Cindy Day and her hospitality bunch did a fantastic job with her speedy check in. Beth Cornwell had her little Ways and Means store set up in the corner selling Lucky Shucker Shirts and winter apparel. Tootie Brown was playing some great music and the place was packed with smiling faces.
We have our Board Meeting on March 3rd 6pm in the back room of Fat Harold’s. This is a great opportunity for members to know what is going on with their club and especially if you are a new member, you can meet the Board and Committee Chairs. Hope to see you there.
Get out those St. Patrick’s Day decorations because on March 14th “It’s Parade Time!!!!” This is my personal favorite Parade of the year. Billy Powell (Parade Chair) will be sending out information by email and if you have any questions, you can email or call him.
Our March 21st Party will be a good one! We haven’t had an Irish Party for many years. The Club will be providing Shepherds Pie and rolls, while members will be asked to bring your best side dish or dessert. Entertainment has something special planned, so make sure you wear your dancing shoes with that favorite St. Patrick’s Day outfit.
P.S. Are you ready for SOS?
It’s just around the corner
