The Monroe Shag Club, (MSC) was founded by its charter members in 1987 and was later voted into the
Association of Carolina Shag Clubs (ACSC) in 1988. The MSC became incorporated as a non-profit corporation on
July 10, 2000. As members of the MSC, we are dedicated and operate exclusively for non-profit purposes. The
club objectives are to preserve the shag dance, promote beach music, and to support the community of Union
County with our annual charity fundraiser, “Shaggin’ For Dollars”.

Hello Monroe Shagger's
I don't know about you, But Somebody needs to
Shoot that Ground Hog! I Have Had enough Cold
Weather. I know many People like Winter. All that
Snow, Ice, and just Plan Cold. I would not be one
of those People. Warm Weather, Shorts, Tee-Shirts,
Flip-Flops! That's my Kind of Weather.
If you are a Cold Weather Person, you sure are getting
Plenty to be Happy About!
Our February Dance was Anything but Cold!
Our largest Crowd in Several months. A big Thanks to
our Hosts, Mitch and Mary Helms and David and
Donna Peshel. Our DJ was Butch Mattox who did
a great Job Keeping the Floor Full. Pray for Butch, as
he Battles Cancer. About 10 or More from his
Shag Club PSA, came to Support him.
I have heard Stories about MSC, and how they used to
go in Large Number's to other Clubs and Visit.
Its Sounds and Looks like it would be a lot of Fun. To
Get together and Hit another Club, to support them.
We Definitely need to Hit PSA, Charlotte Shag Club,
and our Sister Club Lancaster. They have came out in
number's to support us.
George Ring Forgot it was Valentine's day, and was
Lucky enough to win the Raffle, which was a Dozen
Roses. He Told Barb he had it all under Control. And
that he came through in the End. (way to go George!)
We the Monroe Shag Club, are going to miss George
and Barb as they Decided to Move to North myrtle
Beach.

David Beaudry won the 50-50. All in all there was
Plenty of Visitors, lots of our own People, Great
food, Lots of Dancing, Tons of Fun. I wish all of our
Dances could have that kind of Crowd.
Our March Dance will be Hosted by Wendell and
Becky Keziah, ( a first time Host, Thanks Guys!) and
Wanda and Myself. The DJ is none other than Murl
Augustine. He is worth the price of Admission just
to listen and laugh at him. The Dance starts at
7:30, so make Plans to come on out and enjoy a
great night.
I have SOS cards Available at the Dance for 30.00
Dollar's each, After the Dance I am going to send
them back.
Hope to see you there!!
Love ya! Mean it!
