The Choo Choo Shag Club is a non-profit social club organized as a dance club and directed toward the entertainment, fellowship and interest of its members. Shaggers everywhere have a common goal, to enjoy, uphold, promote and perpetuate the traditions of beach and shag music and shag dance.
I am very excited about what's been happening this year! Our Club has seen growth. Not only has membership increased, but there has been a renewal of enthusiasm for dance and Club participation. Our pilot program of offering free weekly dance lessons has been very popular. Thanks to instructors Tisha, Jim, Linda, Mel, Angie, and Ken and Yvonne. Also, thanks to the folks who offer assistance to dancers during lesson practice time.
We are blessed to have a talented trio of deejays who do a great job of keeping up with the latest shag and beach music. A big thanks to Mel, Ken and Bill.
We had a spectacular Shag Tracks. I'm amazed that we can pack so many activities (and food/drinks) in a mere four days. Many, many thanks to everyone who made this event a success. A special thanks goes to Rose Kellar, our "Master Planner." She makes her job look easy, but we all know that "just ain't so."
One last thing. I would like to thank Board members Paulette (treasurer and girl Friday), Calvin (secretary and assistant to Paulette in whatever project she's involved in), Bill (vice president of social and Club cheerleader), and Ed and Sandy (co-vice presidents of membership who not only keep the membership records straight but serve as a two-person welcoming committee).
Thank you all so much . . . . . .
