November brought us great food, fellowship and fun. Our re-up and Thanksgiving party at Duck’s was a blast and we are still the largest shag dance club in the world. Think about it!
December is here and the holidays are upon us. We will have our last Board meeting of the year on Tuesday, December 3rd and I invite all to come and join us at Fat Harold’s in the back room at 6:00 PM.
On Saturday, December 7th, we will participate in the North Myrtle Beach Christmas parade, so decorate your golf carts and come join the festivities.
One of our club’s most gratifying events will be held on Monday, December 9th when we go to Myrtle Beach Manor to be with our friends there and celebrate the season. Santa Joe Ferlauto has planned a fun night and we are looking forward to being with “the youngsters” at the Manor.
December 14th is the date for our annual Christmas party at Fat Harold’s. We will enjoy a catered dinner from T-Bonz and as usual, we’ll have a great time. Remember to bring a food item that will go to our families that have been identified as “in need” and our club will support with food, clothing and toys. This is a wonderful time of the year for sharing, giving and loving.
Merry Christmas to all and I’ll see you on the dance floor!

|The OD Shag club family came together
at Ducks for a great Thanksgiving party. Our fabulous
cooks provided the side dishes to the turkey and ham
provided by the club. Afterwards a very funny but
touching skit showed how our families have evolved from
the first thanksgiving between the Indians and Pilgrims
to today’s non-traditional families.

Many thanks to Kathy Sanders, Cindy Day, Linda Campbell, Heidi Cross, Peggy Christie and all their helpers for a job well done. Paul Craver played great music for a packed dance floor.
I hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving and blessings to all for the holiday season.
Hopefully everyone had a thankful and happy Thanksgiving with loved ones and friends. The November dinner was a success thanks to all the volunteers who helped the food committee make sure there was a steady stream of food on the table. It couldn’t have been done without their help. There were 181 members in attendance and thanks to all who brought food to share with the club, everything was delicious. T Bonz provided the turkey and ham which seemed to be enjoyed by all. Leftovers were taken to the North Myrtle Beach Fire Department.

SOS Parade will be Saturday April 12th at 1:00 pm. We
will start lining up at 11 am that Saturday morning
around the Kroger / Bi Lo area on Main Street.
Our theme for this years SOS parade will be "The Ocean Drive Magic Kingdom". This will also be a way to show appreciation for all the hard work and dedication we receive from the Clubs that support SOS. We have 5 Clubs to choose from and we can use their Characters from Logos to make up our Magic Kingdom.
When emailing to sign up, please list your 1st, 2nd and 3rd Club choice and I will then return an email back with your confirmation regarding which is available to insure that we represent all the clubs equally. Because this is a first come first serve (by email), it will in turn make it fair to all ODSC members. Wendy's email: firstname.lastname@example.org
In looking back at the imaginations that we have had in the past from the ODSC, this will be one to remember. I would also like to have a trailer or float with all 5 Clubs represented in full costume.
The SOS Awards Ceremony will be held at Fat Harold’s at 3:30 following the parade, so please join in the FUN! The OD Shag Club has won 1st Place for Best Shagging Troop 11 years in a row. With everyone’s help and participation we can make it TWELVE.
