    We had another successful and fun meeting of the Book Club on October 28.  Thanks to Margie Wood for hosting and providing the yummy appetizers and to Mary Alice Blackburn for leading the discussion on Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens.  CSOC's Book Club was started in January, 2017 and since that time,  we've read and discussed 30 books.  CSOC book selections for the next several months are:

    November 25, 2019

    Host – Beverly Kradel - Azalea Lakes Community, 3943 Gladiola Ct., Unit #104, Myrtle Beach (843) 455-6556

    Discussion Leader – Jeanne Coco – (Backup is Elena Moglia)

    The Only Woman in the Room – Marie Benedict

    She possessed a stunning beauty.  She also possessed a stunning mind.  Could the world handle both?  Her beauty almost certainly saved her from the rising Nazi party and led to marriage with an Austrian arms dealer.  Underestimated in everything else, she overheard the Third Reich’s plans while at her husband’s side, understanding more than anyone would guess.  She devised a plan to flee in disguise from their castle and the whirlwind escape landed her in Hollywood, where she became screen star, Hedy Lamarr.  But she kept a secret more shocking than her heritage or her marriage, she was a scientist.  And she knew a few secrets about the enemy.  She had an idea that it might help the country fight the Nazis if anyone would listen to her.  A powerful novel based on the incredible true story of the glamour icon and scientist whose groundbreaking invention revolutionized modern communication.

    THE BOOK CLUB WILL NOT MEET IN DECEMBER.

    January 27, 2020

    Host – Faith Campbell - 1228 Ambling Way Dr., Myrtle Beach - (843) 455-0606

    Discussion Leader - Judy Bledsoe

    The Incredible Life of Sam Hell – Robert Dugoni

    A novel that, if it doesn’t cross entirely over into John Irving territory, certainly nestles in close to the border.”  Sam Hill always saw the world through different eyes.  Born with red pupils, he was called “Devil Boy” or Sam “Hell” by his classmates; “God’s will” is what his mother called his ocular albinism.  Her words were of little comfort, but Sam persevered, buoyed by his mother’s devout faith, his father’s practical wisdom, and his two other misfit friends.  Forty years later, Sam, a small-town eye doctor, is no longer certain anything was by design, especially not the tragedy that caused him to turn his back on his friends, his hometown, and the life he’d always known.  Running from the pain, eyes closed, served little purpose.  Now, as he looks back on his life, Sam embarks on a journey that will take him halfway around the world.  This time, his eyes are wide open, bringing into clear view what changed him, defined him, and made him so afraid, until he can finally see what truly matters.

    Enjoy the read,

    First of all, a BIG Thank You to Jeanne & Rob Coco for coordinating October Activities.  We had a great time at a variety of events, culminating at our annual Halloween Party and at a Top Golf afternoon.  I am sad to say though, that Jeanne & Rob are leaving our community as they have sold their home and have purchased their forever home back in Virginia near family.   We will miss you guys.  Come back and visit us often!

    Checkout the website for our November activities organized by Carol McMillan and Ray Burton. Remember that each member needs to log on to the website and register separately in order for the coordinator and our webmaster to have the names of members and any guests who are attending events.  Your cooperation on this is greatly appreciated.

    Our annual Thanksgiving Bash will be on Thursday, November 14 at 5:30 PM, again at the Elk’s Club in Myrtle Beach at 606 27th Ave N.  (Please note that this is in place of our regular meeting on the second Tuesday of the month.)  It should prove to be a fun filled night with fellowship, music and, of course, great food.  As always, the club will provide the main course and members are to bring a complimentary side dish, appetizer or dessert.  If you’re wondering what to bring, we need more side dishes and appetizers than desserts.  Due to the increased cost of this event, All members will be required to also pay $15 entry into the event.  With that you get a ticket for a choice to win won one of 6 awesome gift baskets!!  Guests are welcome but are required to pay $25 to attend the Thanksgiving Party.  We will also do a 50/50 raffle.  DJ Rick Ramos will entertain us and we will have a short meeting announcing our 2 new inductees into the Book of Fame.  Make sure you register on the website and bring along friends and prospective CSOC candidates.

    There is a change in our December meeting date due to availability at the Giant Crab.  The December meeting will be the FIRST Tuesday of December, on December 3, at the Pirate’s Tavern at the Giant Crab.

    Be sure to place Friday, December 6 on your calendar for our annual Christmas party.  We will once again party hardy at Pine Lakes Country Club. We will have a scrumptious buffet dinner with appetizers and dessert.  Cash Bar and fabulous dancing and by popular demand, entertainment by DJ Rick Ramos.  The cost is only $40 for members and $45 for guests.  Tickets are on sale now and will be sold at the Thanksgiving Party.  Contact Elena Moglia or Karen Schwartz for tickets.

    Our board meetings are open to any of the club members that would like to participate, so come share your ideas.  You may not be able to vote, but we would love to hear what you can bring to the table.  We are also encouraging new members to join our board.  This coming spring, we will vote for new officers for President-Elect, 2 Vice Presidents, and 3 directors.  If you are interested in club operations, contact Karen Fitch.
