3. A few days remain to enter the Seniors Advisory Committee art contest and perhaps win $250. The City of Myrtle Beach has received a grant from the AARP Community Challenge to create and display bicycle and pedestrian safety messages at 10 key intersections throughout the city. The contest is for 10 illustrations that convey a Myrtle Beach-related message about bicycle or pedestrian safety, wayfinding or proper social distancing for walkers and bikers. The AARP grant involves two of the city’s committees. The Bicycle and Pedestrian Committee will come up with the safety messages, while the Seniors Advisory Committee will sponsor the art contest and select the 10 winning artistic submissions. The safety messages and winning illustrations will be combined into vinyl wraps that will cover the large traffic signal control cabinets at the 10 intersections. Each winning artist whose work is selected will receive $250 and the honor of having his or her artwork appear in public as part of the safety campaign. Winning artworks will be displayed as described at one of the 10 intersections. The entry deadline is Wednesday, September 30 (unless extended). For more information and to view the contest rules, visit https://www.cityofmyrtlebeach.com. Or, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
4. Looking ahead, the city celebrates National Night Out from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., Tuesday, October 6. Due to COVID-19, this year’s event will be a different experience for all. To observe social distancing, no gatherings or block parties will occur. Instead, city staff and police personnel will drive through neighborhoods to show support. Event participants are asked to turn on porch lights, sit on front lawns or porches and wave to city staff and neighbors! For more information, contact Crime Prevention Officer Stephani James at 843-918-1806 or email@example.com. In addition, the Myrtle Beach Police Department is hosting a Face Mask Design Contest with first, second and third prizes. City residents who wish to enter can submit a photo with contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org. On Tuesday, October 6, the mask photos will be posted to the Myrtle Beach Police Department Facebook page, and department staff will select the winners. First prize wins a RING doorbell system and gift bag; second and third prizes win gift bags. (Note that inappropriate designs will not be posted.)
5. Need information about the coronavirus emergency? You’ll find timely updates and general information on our Coronavirus Advisory webpage.
6. The online E-Resources webpage is available on the city’s website. Some city buildings remain closed to the public, but we are working to provide online content for all ages. On the webpage, you’ll find creative and educational options for you and your family to enjoy!
7. A comprehensive list of activities and city events is available on our Events webpage. This file of city-related festivals, programs and more is updated weekly.
8. Eagle Scouts were working last weekend, improving the Mountain Bike Skills Park at the Jack Walker Trailhead, and that’s the subject of our Photos of the Week. Led by Brenden Forsee of Troop 899 in Carolina Forest, Scouts turned out in force to maintain the landscaping and create a few new elements. The mountain bike course is on the southern end of Myrtle Beach’s East Coast Greenway, beside Kings Highway. The trail is a popular spot for bikers, and thanks to the Scouts, it’s in good shape!
9. Did you know... That the multipurpose path around the Grand Park Lake at The Market Common is 1.1 miles long? That’s how far you’ll travel on one circuit of the path.
