Summer is leaving silently. Much like a traveler approaching the end of an amazing journey.

~ Darnell Lamont Walker


Dear Ocean Shores Community Club Members,


Memories Made

Ocean Shores Community Club members celebrated summer’s end at our amazing annual picnic. Your Ocean Shores Community Club staff and Board of Trustees hosted over 330 members for an afternoon of good eating, good music (provided by the OSCC Slow Jam Group) and good friends. Our Bayshore yard view was reminiscent of a Norman Rockwell painting.  Personally, it is a memory I will keep with me for years to come. I am grateful to our staff and trustees, and their family members, who were a huge contributor to the successful celebration.

Activity Updates

September is a month of returns. Children, teachers, and administrators are returning to offices and classrooms. So it is, several activities are returning to our repertoire of group offerings. Gentle Yoga, Chair Yoga and Aqua Dance Party are returning to their regularly scheduled dates and times. Additionally, Water Aerobics is moving back inside to our Bayshore pool on September 5th.

A new group is beginning in September.  Need to work on flexibility, strength, and mobility? Check out Slow Deep Stretch and Flow on Wednesday nights from 5:30 PM to 6:30 PM in the meeting room.


What is next? Our Holiday Bazaar which looks to be even more exciting with added space to include more vendors and more shopping opportunities. Mark your calendar for this year’s shopping extravaganza on Saturday, November 11th! Shop early and enjoy the season.  We hope to see you there!


A Step Back in Time

1972 proved to be a challenging fall for the City of Ocean Shores. Radio station KDUX was off air and just returning to operation. There were challenges to beach driving by local citizens. On a more positive note, Coast Communications opened their new office. Togas were introduced to local women as comfortable wear for relaxing and entertaining.  Check out our history and uncover the coolest ‘cat’ for sale. Copies are available in the Loft.

Not an End, a New Beginning

Summer 2023 may be winding down, yet we all feel the energy in the coolness of fall’s return. Ocean Shores Community Club celebrates our members as well as our yesterdays and our todays. Even more, we look to the future and newness that each season brings to each of us.


"O sweet September, thy first breezes bring
The dry leaf's rustle and the sq
uirrel's laughter,
The cool fresh air whence health and vigor spring
And promise of exceeding joy hereafter."

                                                                        -George Arnold


To new days and new beginnings,


Kathleen Maroney

General Manager
