Dear Ocean Shores Community Club Members,

I am grateful to our members for your kindness and patience as we continue to grow and change. The Ocean Observer is back in print and you can look forward to some changes later in the year. If you have news to share, email


Summer is nearly upon us and your maintenance team is working hard to prepare our parks and pools for the scheduled opening on May 25. The Cabana Pool’s filters are being overhauled. Repairs to the system from the winter freeze are also being addressed. Thanks to the team for all their hard work and amazing efforts.

We are excited to share we have a full team of lifeguards as we move into summer. Our outdoor pool located at Cabana Park will open on Saturdays and Sundays beginning May 25. Water Aerobics will move to the outdoor pool beginning Monday, May 27 with a new summer time of 10:30 a.m.

A Step Back in Time

May 1981 was an eventful year for Ocean Shores Community Club. They were celebrating 21 years while preparing for the annual board of trustees’ elections. Bridge Club was beginning and a new diet group started. Pat Boone was in town doing some celebration himself. Check out the May 1981 Ocean Observer. Copies are available in the loft and café.


Closing Thoughts:

May includes lots of celebrations and a day of remembrance. We wish all our moms a beautiful day and our graduates a wonderful future.  We also wish to remember our fallen heroes this Memorial Day. Because of their sacrifice, we can celebrate the joys we share in our lives.


“At last came the golden month of the wild folk — honey-sweet May, when the birds come back, and the flowers come out, and the air is full of the sunrise scents and songs of the dawning year.”
