Letter From The President November 2015

There are so many things in our lives that we are thankful for and there are times I don’t even know where to begin. We are always grateful for our family, our health and what we were able to accomplish in our life. I was given a great gift when I joined this club and I’m thankful every day for the opportunity to know and love so many wonderful people. Thank you!!

We had our Election Party at Pirate’s Cove on October 24th and congratulations to the 2016 Board of Directors. Also, we announced Karen Young as the 2015 Al Cain Award winner. Thanks goes to Milford and John Powell providing the Fish Fry that we missed in June and to Jay Nelms for being our DJ for the evening.

Our Thanksgiving Party will be held at Duck’s Beach Club on November 21st and hope to see you there. The Party will start at 6pm and this is also the time to renew your membership for 2016. The website has made it easy to print your membership application, if you would like to save some time by having it filled out prior to the event. The ODSC will be providing turkey, ham, dressing and gravy. The members are asked to bring a side dish or dessert and to arrive by 5:30, this will allow the Food Committee to arrange and organize the tables.

The Christmas Parade will be on December 5th at 5:30. Let’s get those decorations out and have us a good time. Make sure you get there early to sign in, this also allows us preparation time so that we look our best for everyone watching the parade. Billy Powell will be sending emails out with all the details of the parade.

Myrtle Beach Manor has been scheduled for the 7th of December at 6pm. The OD Shag Club will provide the residents with a Christmas Party that includes Entertainment, Shag Dancing and Christmas gifts. Please mark your calendars for this event, you will love to see the smiles on their faces and warmth in their hearts for the Holidays.

December 12th at Fat Harold’s, we will be having the ODSC Christmas Party!! We collect canned foods along with non-perishable items for denotation to needy families. The trailer will be at the front door of Harold’s on the night of this event. We will be meeting to box the items on Sunday, December 13th for delivery on Monday, December 14th. Emails will be sent out with more details.

I wish you a Happy Thanksgiving with your friends and family and pray that everyone is safe in their travels for the holidays.
