The Friday Fax Weekly Memo


Posted Friday, April 18, 2014


A printable .pdf of the Friday Fax is available.


1.   The week’s meeting schedule and agendas are available.

2.   As shown on the meeting schedule, City Council’s annual budget retreat begins next Sunday, April 27, at 6:00 p.m.  The retreat is held at Santee Cooper’s Wampee Conference Center in Pinopolis, near Moncks Corner.  It continues all day Monday, April 28, and until lunch on Tuesday, April 29.  The budget retreat agenda will be included in next week’s Friday Fax, along with directions to the conference center, for all who wish to attend.  

3.   Drive-N-Live, a new “teen safe” driving program, will be held next Saturday, April 26, at NASCAR Speedpark in Myrtle Beach.  Sponsored by Horry County Police, Myrtle Beach Police, Surfside Beach Police, Conway Police and the South Carolina Highway Patrol, the event invites teens from Horry County to learn about such dangerous habits as texting while driving and driving under the influence in a fun and safe atmosphere.  Students will have a chance to wear “drunk goggles” while driving a go-cart on an obstacle course.  They also will attempt to send a text message while driving a go-cart.  This free program is intended for ages 14 to 18, or students in eighth through 12th grades.  Registration begins at 8:00 a.m., with the program from 8:30 to 11:00 a.m. (when the park opens to the public).  Note:  A parent must be present at registration for teens who are 17 or younger.  For more information, contact Officer Felix Cruz of the Horry County Police Department at 215-5384. 

4.   Attention businesses and organizations!  Parade entries are being accepted for the big Memorial Day Weekend Parade on Saturday, May 24.  The parade and other activities are part of Military Appreciation Days.  US Navy veteran and TV talk show host Montel Williams is this year’s Grand Marshal and will meet fans following the parade at the big Family Picnic.  A traveling Vietnam Memorial Wall will visit in mid-May.  For more information, including entry forms for the 5K run on the Boulevard and Boardwalk, the Memorial Day Weekend Parade and exhibits at the Family Picnic, see

5.   Last week’s Stormfest family event at the Pelicans’ stadium is the subject of our Photos of the Week.  Sponsored by Horry County, the City of Myrtle Beach and the National Weather Service, Stormfest offers a chance for all ages to learn about natural disasters, as well as to meet the people who track such things and respond to them.  Education and safety are the goals. 

6.   Did you know…  That Myrtle Beach has a curfew for juveniles under age 18?  The curfew is in effect from 1:00 to 6:00 a.m., daily, with exceptions if the juvenile is:  accompanied by a parent or guardian; involved in an emergency or on an errand because of one; working or going to or from work; traveling through the area from state to state; on an errand directed by a parent or guardian; attending an adult-supervised school, religious or governmental activity or traveling directly to or from such an event; on the sidewalk abutting the minor’s home; exercising protected First Amendment rights; or married or otherwise legally emancipated.
