The Friday Fax Weekly Memo


Posted Friday, April 21, 2017


A printable .pdf of the Friday Fax is available.


1.   Next week’s meeting schedule and agendas are attached.  


2.   A portion of 48th Avenue North will be closed for a month, beginning Monday, April 24.  The section between Kings Highway and Pine Lake Drive will be closed to through traffic due to underground construction.  Detours will be posted to 44th Avenue North, Little River Road and other streets.  The City of Myrtle Beach has hired a contractor to replace an older eight-inch gravity sewer line, a 16-inch sewer force main and a stormwater drainage pipe, all of which run beneath 48th Avenue North.  Access to local businesses and the Lakeside Trail neighborhood will be maintained.  The work will be finished by May 24. 


3.   Myrtle Beach police officers and firefighters take to the field with teens from the Boys & Girls Club next Saturday, April 29, for a fun game of flag football.  This is the third annual event, held at Ashley Booth Field on 33rd Avenue North, behind Pepper Geddings Recreation Center.  The Police and Fire Department teams will play each other, with both sides welcoming younger players from the Boys & Girls Club.  Admission is free, but donations to the club are welcomed.  Everyone’s invited to enjoy four, eight-minute quarters of flag football beginning at 10:00 a.m. 


4.   All ages are welcome to register for the city’s free basic swim lessons, called “Splash without Cash.”  This program at Mary C. Canty Recreation Center is specifically for non-swimmers, ages five and up.  It teaches water safety and survival skills to children, teens and adults.  Classes will be held in the afternoons, Monday through Thursday, May 22-25.  Pre-registration is required, so select one of the class times (4:00, 4:40, 5:20 or 6:00 p.m.) and call Mary C. Canty Recreation Center at 943-918-1476.  Space is limited, so sign up early. 


5.   Get tickets now for the Military Appreciation Days Dinner-Dance, to be held Thursday, May 25, at the Sheraton Myrtle Beach Convention Center Hotel.  The event includes live music, a great menu and good company.  The social hour begins at 6:00 p.m., with the dinner and dancing at 7:00 p.m.  Tickets are $30 each and are available at City Hall or from the Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 925. 


6.   Registration continues for the 2017 Military Appreciation Days Parade, to be held Saturday, May 27, on Farrow Parkway at The Market Common.  Sign-up forms are available at, along with other information about the May activities.  Oregon National Guardsman Alek Skarlatos is our Grand Marshal this year.  Skarlatos and two friends stopped a gunman on a Paris-bound train in 2015.  This year, we also are thrilled to have World War II veteran Jack Platt, a Myrtle Beach resident, as our Honorary Grand Marshal.  Come see and meet them during the parade and family picnic. 


7.   The city’s Seniors Advisory Committee recently received a guided tour of the new International Culinary Institute of Myrtle Beach at HGTC, and that’s the subject of our Photos of the Week.  The $16 million facility at the Grand Strand campus offers professional kitchens, teaching studios, a dining room, an outdoor barbecue classroom and even a bakery.


8.   Did you know…  That Atlantic Coast Line Railroad described Myrtle Beach in a 1937 newsletter as “a modern, rapidly growing sea-side resort, with several miles of paved roads, modernly equipped hotels, with practically all of the advantages of the city, yet close enough to Nature to make a visit there refreshing, and luring one back again and again….”?  The article concluded:  “With the ever-increasing travel to and from this famous beach town… its future seems assured.  More power to Myrtle Beach!” 


Previous Did You Knows are available.
