A printable .pdf of the Friday Fax is available.


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


2.   Make plans now to enjoy the Myrtle Beach Jazz Festival on Saturday, October 1.  This first-time event is being held on Carver Street in the Booker T. Washington neighborhood, once the site of Charlie’s Place, a thriving entertainment destination for African-American performers.  Nationally-known acts played Charlie’s Place, and the Jazz Festival hopes to recreate that musical atmosphere.  The festival is from 1:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m.  Bring your beach chairs and blankets to enjoy the festivities.  Admission is free, with parking at the former Myrtle Square Mall site and a shuttle to the event location.  Performers during the Jazz Festival include James “Bull” Canty, Skipp Pearson, CC & Company, West African Drummers, Jazz Etc., Tru Sol and Jessie Wilson, Jr. 


3.   Looking ahead, Myrtle Beach’s neighborhoods will celebrate National Night Out on Tuesday, October 4.  About half of the city’s Neighborhood Watch groups will participate in the annual event, which features block parties, cook-outs and ice cream socials.  Myrtle Beach City Council member and staff, including the Police and Fire Department personnel, will travel around, visiting the neighborhoods.  Stay tuned for a schedule of events and locations next week. 


4.   Bring your family and your friends, especially the kids, to a casual picnic at Grand Park Shelters A and C from 12:00 to 4:00 p.m., Saturday, October 8.  The event is called “Connecting Cops, Kids and Community,” with a goal of building a relationship among our police officers and local youngsters.  The picnic features free food and a variety of activities, including a dunking booth, sports, games, face painting and music.  For more information, contact Corporal Nicole Shelton at 843-918-1956. 


5.   Registration continues for this year’s Mayor’s Cup Amateur Golf Championship, to be played at all three in-city golf courses!  The first day’s competition will occur at Whispering Pines Golf Course, followed by day two at Pine Lakes International Country Club and day three at Grande Dunes.  Male and female players, age 18 and up, will vie for the championship titles, November 18-20, in these 54-hole tournaments.  The application form is available at  City residency is not required.  The entry fee is $249 and includes course fees, lunch each day, range balls and a tee gift.  (Practice rounds at any of the three courses are extra.)  Entry applications are available at all three courses and must be received by 5:00 p.m., Friday, November 4.  For information, call 843-918-2305. 


6.   The annual Beach, Boogie and Barbecue Festival helps kick off the fall season, and that’s the subject of our Photos of the Week.  During the Labor Day weekend, festival-goers enjoyed barbecue, live music, a classic car show and more during the 11th annual event.  The festival returned to Grand Park and the Horry-Georgetown Technical College Campus near The Market Common. 


7.   Did you know…  That the fire-breathing dragon at Broadway at the Beach is called Sir Alfred?  Natalie Tennant won the “name the dragon” contest on April 13, 1997, when Broadway at the Beach opened.
