Posted Friday, March 24, 2017


   

A printable .pdf of the Friday Fax is available.

 

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

 

2.   Fraud and scam prevention is the topic of a free workshop at 10:00 a.m., Tuesday, March 28, at the Myrtle Beach Train Depot.  The event is sponsored by the Seniors Advisory Committee and AARP.  It’s open to the public, with refreshments by AARP.  Presenters include Juliana Harris from the SC Department of Consumer Affairs, Sergeant Timmy Tyner from the Horry County Police Department and Detective Rich Arroyo from the Myrtle Beach Police Department.  Everyone – especially our senior community – is invited to learn about current frauds and scams and how to avoid becoming a victim. 

 

3.   Get your tickets now for the Military Appreciation Days Dinner-Dance, set for Thursday evening, May 25, at the Sheraton Myrtle Beach Convention Center Hotel.  The event includes live music, a great menu and good company.  Tickets are $30 each.  This also will be the welcome event for visiting military personnel recovering from their injuries at military hospitals and bases in the Carolinas and Virginia.  Other Military Appreciation Activities this year include the Horry County Junior ROTC Drill Meet, beginning at 9:00 a.m., Saturday, May 6, in the Myrtle Beach Pelicans’ parking area.  It’s followed by the Military Family Members Event at noon in the Pelicans’ picnic area. 

 

4.   Sign up now for the 2017 Military Appreciation Days Parade, to be held Saturday, May 27, on Farrow Parkway at The Market Common.  You’ll find the parade registration forms, along with other information about our May activities, at the newly updated web site, www.militaryappreciationdays.com.  This year’s Grand Marshal is Army National Guard Specialist Alek Skarlatos.  See the web site for the story of his heroic action. 

 

5.   Speaking of Military Appreciation Days, we have a number of veterans and others who would be happy to talk about this year’s events and activities.  To arrange an interview on any of these topics, contact the Public Information Office at 843-918-1014.  Potential speakers include Melissa Dion, Bob Hawkins, Chris Aranda, Roger Pilcher and others. 

 

6.   Businesses and others who work with or provide service to the visiting J1 Visa students will want to attend the kickoff to our International Student Outreach Program at 9:00 a.m., Thursday, March 30, at the Sheraton Myrtle Beach Convention Center Hotel.  Topics include local organizations’ responsibilities and what the Grand Strand community does to assist students and businesses throughout the summer.

 

7.   The Pee Dee Street Rodders’ recent car and truck show, with 3,300 vehicles, is the subject of our Photos of the Week.  The annual show filled the former Myrtle Square Mall site from Thursday through Saturday, drawing thousands of people to see classic cars of every make and color.

8.   Did you know…  That the City of Myrtle Beach was the first community in the nation to earn a Class 5 CRS rating for flood insurance?  CRS stands for Community Rating System, a voluntary program for communities that participate in the National Flood Insurance Program.  Only 105 out of nearly 1,400 hundred participating communities have a Class 5 rating.  Myrtle Beach property owners receive a discount on their flood insurance premiums, thanks to the city’s high score.
