From the Desk Of Our Club Manager:

Happy May Days!!

Dear Community Club Members,

Listening to the Governor’s message on May 4th, 2021, I am cautiously optimistic that Grays Harbor County will continue to demonstrate an improvement in the county’s Covid-19 statistics. My confidence directly correlates with the commitment from Ocean Shores Community Members currently utilizing the Bayshore Clubhouse. Members are practicing the mask and social distancing protocols. These practices have allowed all of us to remain healthy and safe. I am truly appreciative to everyone for their understanding and cooperation.

Members’ commitment to protocol practices and the hope of the county’s continued positive progress on the Covid-19, allows Ocean Shores Community Club to further expand our clubhouse access. As of Sunday, May 9th (Mother’s Day 2021) Extended Family and Guests will now be permitted access.  Also, our newly refurbished locker rooms and showers will be made available for use. We ask members to practice mask wearing and social distancing whenever possible in the locker room open areas.

This level of access will remain in effect as long as Grays Harbor County remains in Phase Three or beyond. Please keep in mind, Pool and Hot Tub usage will continue to require reservations.

Extended Family Applicant Enrollment Procedures:

Extended Family applicants must be registered by the Ocean Shores Community Club member. The Extended Family cardholder remains active until the Club Member’s next annual membership date. Approved Extended Family Applicants will receive an annual membership card and will be charged $1.00 per clubhouse visit. Guest privileges do not apply to Extended Family cardholders.

Guest Procedures:

Guests must be registered at the front desk. Guests must be accompanied by Club Members at all times. The cost for a Guest is $1.00/day. 

What else is new at OSCC?

Sunday, April 25th was a very exciting and fun fulfilled day at our Bayshore Park. Todd Huckaby hosted a Disc Golf Clinic at our new Tidewater Disc Golf Course.  Members and staff were introduced to this fun and intergenerational game. Todd shared his game knowledge, rules and tips to improving one’s technique. Members learned, played and watched expert players complete a round. This is a great game for all ages and all skill levels. I even joined one of the clinics and learned the game. While I need more practice, I improved along the way as we played through the first part of the course. I invite all of our members to come and try out this new sport on one of the most beautiful disc golf courses available. Members wishing to try their first play at Tidewater Disc Golf Course can sign out discs for play at the front desk. Scorecards are also available.

April showered us with a return of multiple community club groups. Practicing social distancing and wearing masks, many groups reconvened at the Ocean Shores Community Club to resume their activity and gatherings. Badminton, Yoga, Aerobics, Origami, Knit & Crocheting, Paint-In and Slow Jam are back! It is heart-warming to see friends re-engage in shared activities. The laughter, kindness and regular daily chats bring some sense of normalcy. Each day I become more grateful for the opportunity to meet and engage with members. Now I not only am beginning to learn names, but ‘eyes’ as well.

What’s Next?

In anticipation of summer, we have been working to prepare for the outdoor activities our families enjoy, particularly swimming. Opening the two outdoor heated pools, one at Ken Peterson Park and the other at Cabana Park, is a goal we are actively working to make happen. Ensuring pool safety is paramount for the pools to open. Ocean Shores Community Club is seeking Lifeguards for the summer months. Anyone interested is asked to contact the Ocean Shores Community Club to arrange an interview.

Every day I am learning more about our members and their desires for the Club. I am always grateful for the suggestions and shares. Most recently a member asked for a suggestions box. I walked this member to my open office door. I have a big box that remains open to shares, comments and suggestions. So, on behalf of this member, I am sharing the following.

Each morning I head to work and think on how to make today better than yesterday. Just the other morning, John Lennon’s song “Imagine” comes to mind. The lyrics are poignant and hopeful. They give us permission to dream for a better today and the possibilities before us. So, in closing, I leave you with Mr. Lennon’s dream:

Imagine there’s no heaven

It’s easy if you try

No hell below us

Above us only sky

Imagine all the people living for today

Imagine there’s no countries

It isn’t hard to do

Nothing to kill or die for

And no religion too

Imagine all the people living life in peace, you

You may say I’m a dreamer

But I’m not the only one

I hope someday you’ll join us

And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions

I wonder if you can

No need for greed or hunger

A brotherhood of man

Imagine all the people sharing all the world, you

You may say I’m a dreamer

But I’m not the only one

I hope someday you’ll join us

And the world will be as one

-John Lennon

May all our dreams of peace, love and joy come true!
