Last month, I was very excited and impressed with OCD- Valentine’s party. They were successful to with 68 people in attendance. And I wanted to many thanks to OCD’s board officers, who worked together as a team and a good job to help each other. And special many thanks to Annette Baer, who is chairperson and planned the Valentine party such as: make flyer, many ideas of games, creative to add new games, and work hard as team. Good news! Annette done asked to everyone who will be interested to play game again for St. Patrick’s party hosted by OCD. I sure that everyone had a blast, a lot of fun games and enjoyed the night. They most voted to have it on Saturday, March 22nd. See the flyer! smile. Congratulation to Board at Large, Lorrie Shank. And anyone who interested to join an open position as Canteen Manager!

Valentine’s Party by Lorrie Shank

Valentine’s party chair person, Annette Baer drew out a deck of card.

It was a huge success at the Valentine’s Party with 68 people in attendance! 51 people had played Val-ingo (similar to Olingo but different money prizes) and no one won ‘Val’, ‘I’, ‘N’, ‘G’ so all money from these columns went to ‘O’ column for the total of $255. Sammye Johnson had won the ‘O’ as it’s her first time to play this kind of game and she was so generous to donated half of her winning money to OCD! Thanks Sammye! Several people got involved for the best costume contest and Vicky Garms won 1st place, Rita Cooper won 2nd place and Brianna Helms won 3rd place (see picture of them). There were several other games as well like Dennis Nix won for the closest count of M&M in a container and Kathy Garrison won for closest count of Kisses in a container. There were plenty of desserts for everyone to enjoy eating. Biggest ‘waving’ hands to Annette Baer as chairperson for this event and all the officers and volunteers who had helped out as well. Thank to everyone who came to this party! OCD Board will host again for St. Patrick’s Party so check out the flyer!

Total of 68 people in attendance and only 51 played the Valingo.


Left to Right: Vicky Garms 1st place, Rita Cooper 2nd place and Brianna Helms 3rd place for best costume contest.
