The Friday Fax Weekly Memo


Posted Friday, December 2, 2016


A printable .pdf of the Friday Fax is available.


1.   Next week’s meeting schedule and agendas are attached.  Note that several holiday-related events are scheduled for next weekend, beginning with the Plaza City Market on Friday evening at Nance Plaza and Ninth Avenue North and wrapping up with Christmas Towne and the tree lighting ceremony on Sunday afternoon at the Convention Center.


2.   Myrtle Beach will celebrate Arbor Day with two events this fall.  The first is a tree giveaway on Saturday, December 10, at the Farmers’ Market special Holiday Market.  Thanks to a $5,000 grant from CSX Railroad’s “Beyond the Railroad” program, staff will give away 400 trees, including oaks, maples and redbuds, to city residents and city businesses.  The second event is the traditional Arbor Day celebration at 11:00 a.m., Monday, December 12, at the entrance to Whispering Pines Golf Course on Harrelson Boulevard.  In addition to tree plantings, the city will receive its 20th annual Tree City USA award from the National Arbor Day Foundation.  For more information, contact Diane Moskow-McKenzie at 843-918-1069. 


3.   Applications are being accepted for the 33rd session of the Citizens Police Academy, which begins in January.  The CPA offers a behind-the-scenes look at the Myrtle Beach Police Department, with topics such as crime scene investigation, K-9 units, emergency vehicle operations and simulated firearms training.  The class meets Monday nights at 7:00 p.m. for 10 weeks, beginning January 23.  Applicants must be residents of Horry County and at least 21.  A criminal history check and a driver’s license background check are required.  Once accepted, class members must attend eight of the 10 sessions to graduate.  Applications must be received by 5:00 p.m., Monday, December 12.  Questions?  Call Sgt. Bryan Murphy at 843-918-1808.


4.   Recent graduation of the 32nd class of the Citizens Police Academy is the subject of our Photos of the Week.  The 10-week class offers a behind-the-scenes look at law enforcement, including ride-along experience with Myrtle Beach Police Officers.  The academy is offered twice a year. 


5.   Did you know…  That J. F. Hamilton was Myrtle Beach’s first police chief, appointed by the newly-created Town Council in 1938?  Until then, Myrtle Beach Farms paid for two police officers (one daytime, one nighttime) to serve the community.  Myrtle Beach Farms also built the first jailhouse, near Oak Street and 10th Avenue North.  It was replaced in 1951 when the city built a new police station and firehouse on 10th Avenue North.  That building today is the City Hall Annex, home of the Myrtle Beach Housing Authority.
