The Friday Fax Weekly Memo


Posted Friday, December 12, 2014


A printable .pdf of the Friday Fax is available.


1.   The week’s meeting schedule and agendas are available Note that the schedule begins with Sunday, December 14, so that we might include details about Christmas Towne at the Convention Center and City Council’s holiday dinner, which will be “Dutch treat.”  Christmas Towne is from 2:00 to 6:30 p.m. on the Plaza at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center.  The entire event will be outdoors this year and will include the tree lighting ceremony.  The Council dinner is a social affair, not a meeting, so no city business will be discussed.

2.   Looking ahead, Santa Claus will visit neighborhoods throughout the city from 1:00 until 5:00 p.m., next Sunday, December 21.  The Myrtle Beach Fire Department will provide a big, red sleigh (better known as a fire truck) for Santa’s rounds.  Children are encouraged to visit with Santa and the firefighters as they make their rounds. 

3.   Still looking ahead, city offices and facilities will be closed Thursday and Friday, December 25 and 26.  Solid waste and recycling will be collected as usual in Zone 1 on Monday, December 22, and in Zone 2 on Tuesday, December 23.  However, both Zones 3 and 4 will receive service on Wednesday, December 24.  Collection service during the New Year’s week will be on the regular schedule, including Thursday, New Year’s Day. 

4.   Registration continues for next year’s “Choose” health and fitness programs, beginning in January.  Space is limited and pre-registration is required, so sign up now for “Choose to Lose” or “Choose to Move” at  These 11-week sessions focus on your health and fitness goals.  Activities begin with a health and fitness fair from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., Saturday, January 10, at Pepper Geddings Recreation Center

5.   The Myrtle Beach Convention Center again will be the site of the annual Palmetto Regional FIRST Robotics Competition, February 27 and 28, 2015.  In all, 66 teams of high school students from across South Carolina and along the East Coast will build their own robots to compete in this fast-paced event.  Teams warm up on Thursday, February 26, with robot inspections and practice rounds, followed by the high-energy tournament itself on Friday and Saturday.  Admission is free, and the public is welcome to watch these talented students put their math, science and engineering skills to work.  The robotics tournament features a “pit” area, a performance arena and fast-paced competition.  To become a volunteer, first visit, then click on VIMS step by step to review the process of getting your information into the system.  (Last year’s volunteers will need to re-register.) 

6.   Myrtle Beach police officers and firefighters were Santa’s helpers last weekend, treating four dozen kids to some holiday shopping at Target, and that's the subject of our Photos of the Week The Police and Fire Department staff raised enough money to give each child at least $200 toward the purchase of clothing, toys and gifts for themselves and family members. 

7.   Did you know…  That staff members from the City of Myrtle Beach donated 122 pints of blood in 2014?  The city hosts four visits from the American Red Cross Bloodmobile each year, in keeping with our “first in service” pledge. 

Previous Did You Knows are available.
