Letter From The President

Greetings Winston-Salem Shag Club! 

We had a great turnout for the WSSC Back Deck Party at Fat Harold’s during SOS week. We had over 90 members and guests join us for a great party. Roy Childress and dear Peggy took care of all our musical requests. Lots of ACSC Board members and spouses came by and raved about how happy we all were. Thanks for bringing food. Let’s discuss how we can handle the food next time since Harold’s no longer supplies food or paper products/utensils. We have a couple of months to figure this out.

The SOS Parade. Thanks to the handful of WSSC members who hopped on the back of the truck; Bruce Leonard, Tammy Cooper joined Wrenna and a few who jumped on during the parade. Nancy Weavil, Linda Boles and Tammy Cooper are already thinking about our ideas/activities for next year. They’ll present ideas and a schedule in October, so talk to them to offer your help. It definitely takes a big commitment from MANY people to put this together.

Our friend and DJ Mike Harding did a terrific job at Swillie’s and the OD Arcade this year. Lots of members showed up to support him. Roy Childress played lots of places besides our party and did a great job as always. Of course Ed Timberlake and Butch Metcalf played just about everyday – we have so many awesome DJs.

The ACSC Summer Workshop will be held in Augusta, GA hosted by the C.S.R.A. Shag Club July 11-13, 2014. Another fun weekend – hope you can attend. More details are available on their website at www.csrashagclub.com.

Please join us on Sunday, May 18, for an afternoon of fun and dancing at Southern Smoke which is located on Myer Lee Dr (the access road that parallels Business 40 at the exit for Linville Rd). Mike Harding will play from 4:00pm to 7:00pm (or

longer). They have a full sandwich menu and cash bar for your dining and beverage pleasure. This is a new event for our club. An afternoon in the spring time to gather, socialize and dance. What could be more fun. Plus there is no door charge for a change.

Mother’s Day is May 11. Thanks to the pioneering women of their times, Julia Ward and Anna Jarvis that the day came into existence. Today the festival of Mother’s Day is celebrated across 46 countries (though on different dates) to honor their mothers, thank them for their efforts in giving them life, raising them and being their constant support and well-wisher. Remember your mom on this day.

Regards from the Prez! Andy Barney
