President's Message

Abracadabra ….it’s magically snowing out west and in Canada already! Japan is reporting “observed” snow dustings! For more magic, it’s supposed to finally cool down in Central Florida! 

Wonderful turn out for the OSC October social on the patio at Miller’s Winter Park Ale House last month, let’s repeat it for Wednesday, Nov 9th!Same time (6:00 – 8:00 p.m.), Same Place! 

Next, guess what holiday will be here VERY soon??? OSC is planning a HOLIDAY PARTY for Wednesday, Dec 14th, we’ve got such momentum going, let’s enjoy a real PARTEEEEE! We’ll meet at a NEW venue, Ferg’s Depot, the newly restored historic 1889 train station in downtown Orlando! It’s BEAUTIFUL with a really lively fun atmosphere! Read about it at http://www.fergsdepot.com/

As OSC has done for years now, we will help the Marine’s collect Toys for Tots! We can all bring a new unwrapped gift for a child to this PARTEEE, be it large or small,it’s for such a worthy cause! It is OUR hearts which benefit from this act of kindness! 

Parteee will begin at 6:00 p.m. with a complimentary beer or wine for OSC members; appetizers; door prizes of Gift Cards to a variety of local restaurants; and visiting with each other. Then after an hour or so, a DJ will join us with fun tunes for dancing until 9:30 p.m.!  Save the date now, more details to come!

Most OSC ski trips are SOLD OUT, with an occasional empty pillow here or there to be filled. Our late season trip, Big Sky, Montana, still has space yet you better register quickly or space will be gone! We save the best for last! Okay, so all OSC trips are great, just Big Sky happens to be a personal fav of mine, I’m an original “MooseKATeer”! We’ve been going to Big Sky annually since snow was invented J, everyone there knows us, they always want us to come multiple times per season as when Orlando skiers and boarders arrive….it always dumps snow!
