4.  The April 1 deadline is fast approaching for nominations for the Colonel Robert Hawkins Veterans Volunteer Service Award.  Do you know an outstanding volunteer who serves the veterans’ community here in Myrtle Beach and Horry County?  The Military Appreciation Committee is launching this new award to recognize a volunteer for services to a veterans’ group, an individual veteran, a veteran’s family and/or the greater Grand Strand veterans’ community.  Nominees must be residents of Horry County and a role model for veterans and others.  The late Bob Hawkins, a retired US Army colonel, was instrumental in planning the events during May.  Applications are available at www.militaryappreciationdays.com and are accepted through April 1.  The direct link is http://www.militaryappreciationdays.com/Colonel%20Robert%20Hawkins%20Veterans%20Volunteer%20Service%20Award%20Nomination.pdf.

5.  The City of Myrtle Beach mailed out 10,595 business license renewal forms earlier this month.  License renewals must be received or postmarked by June 30, 2019.  After that date, a late penalty will apply.  By the way, all owners of residential rental property are required to have a license.  For more information, call the Business License Office at 843-918-1200 or visit https://www.cityofmyrtlebeach.com/careers/business/business_license_requirement.php.

6.  Visit our Events file for a comprehensive list of activities scheduled in Myrtle Beach.  See http://www.cityofmyrtlebeach.com/Events.pdf.  This list of city-related festivals, concerts, programs and more is updated weekly with new information.  The Calendar feature on the city’s website at https://www.cityofmyrtlebeach.com/calendar.php also is a great resource for meetings, events and other scheduled activities.   

7.  This month’s annual Open House at Crabtree Memorial Gymnasium is the subject of our Photos of the Week.  Hundreds turned out for this fun and informative event.  Attendees had a chance to meet the staff and learn what’s available at the center.  Local businesses and non-profits were on hand, too, and everyone enjoyed tai chi demonstrations, live music, popcorn, hotdogs and more. 

8.  Did you know…  That Myrtle Beach now offers beekeepers the ability to register the locations of their hives so that we don’t spray for mosquitoes nearby?  To register a hive, call the Public Works Department at 843-918-2000.  Exceptions to the “no spray zone” include a high mosquito count or complaints in the area for nuisance mosquitoes.  The city sprays for mosquitoes during the warm months, covering the city each week, weather permitting.  For more information, contact Samantha Taylor at 843-918-2017.
