Monica Powell, Candidate for Office of Vice President

monica_powellI am very pleased and honored to have been asked by the Nominating Committee to run for the Office of Vice President of the OD Shag Club.

I am honored to be Secretary for the OD Shag Club for 2014. We have participated in the 3 parades this year as the Grinch at Christmas, leprechauns at the St. Patrick’s parade and the “cute ass” during the SOS parade. We have also sold 50/50 tickets, golf cart tickets and worked with the Ways and Means Committee this year.

We have had a home in NMB since 1988 and spent quite a bit of time in the area. My husband and I sold our home in Weddington, NC and moved to North Myrtle Beach full time in 2012. One of the first things we did was join the OD Shag Club. We have been members of the Monroe Shag Club for many years and understand and appreciate the camaraderie of being a member of a vibrant shag club.
As a member of the Monroe Shag Club, I served in the following capacities:

• President
• Vice President
• Secretary – 2 years
• Membership Chairperson
• Toys for Tots Chairperson – 5 years
• SOS Parade Co-Chair – 5 years
• Shaggin’ for Dollars Chairperson – 7 years
• Participated on Ways and Means and Decorating Committees

The annual charity event, “Shaggin’ for Dollars” raised over $300,000 for local charities. It is a one night event with a silent auction, live auction and show with over 350 attendees.

I am a retired Senior Vice President with Wachovia and managed over 700 associates including a call center. We have one son, Joshua, who lives in Charlotte.

I have attended many ACSC events and have always admired how much participation there is by the OD Shag Club and how much fun everyone seems to have with each other. I am very pleased to be a member of this club and will work hard to ensure I help maintain and grow all the wonderful events and attributes of the OD Shag Club.
