Presidents Letter for December 2014

presidents_letter_karen

Well, December has arrived and it heralds my last letter as OD Shag Club President for 2014. It has been both a challenging and a rewarding year. I want to thank all my board members and committee chairpersons for their support the past year.

Our first event this month is our visit to Myrtle Beach Manor to entertain the residents on Monday, December 8th from 6-8 PM. Members are welcome to join us and help us put smiles on the faces of the residents. This is an annual event and members who have participated have found it very rewarding.

Our OD Shag Club Christmas Party is Saturday, December 13th at 6 PM at Fat Harold’s Beach Club. The meal is being catered by T-Bonz. The Club is sponsoring 4 families with a total of 13 children this year for Christmas. We will be collecting non-perishable food items for these families at the party. Please make sure these items do not have expired dates. Let’s make sure they have a wonderful Christmas this year.

We will also be putting up for silent auction a framed limited edition print by Vic Gillespie. It is number 58 of 500. Minimum bid is $75 and bids will be in $5 increments. This would make a wonderful Christmas present for someone. Bring cash or your checkbook so you can bid on it.

Please give your 2015 President, Wendy Schultz, and her board your support next year. A club is only as good as the members who put forth an effort to make it so. Get involved and make new friends. You will not regret it!

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and may the New Year bring you only joy!

Karen Young

ODSC President 2014
