The Friday Fax Weekly Memo


Posted Friday, April 29, 2016


A printable .pdf of the Friday Fax is available.


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


2.   Two civic clubs will recognize Myrtle Beach’s finest during ceremonies next week.  As shown on the meeting schedule, the Myrtle Beach Rotary Club will honor a Police Officer of the Year at 12:30 p.m., Monday, May 2.  Then, at 12:00 p.m., Friday, May 6, the Chicora Rotary Club will honor a Firefighter of the Year.  Media representatives are invited to attend, but the events are not open to the general public.  


3.   Repaving of Highway 15 will occur next week, weather permitting, from Third Avenue South to Harrelson Boulevard.  The work will be accomplished during the daytime, although pavement markings may be painted into the evening.  Lane closures will occur, with a flagman directing motorists around the work zone.  Drivers are asked to avoid Highway 15, if possible, during the four days necessary to complete the project.  The repaving contractor will then move to 17th Avenue South, between Highway 15 and Kings Highway. 


4.   The deadline is fast approaching for entries into this year’s Military Appreciation Days parade on Saturday, May 28, featuring Noah Galloway as Grand Marshal.  This year’s parade returns to the Memorial Day weekend and also moves to Farrow Parkway and The Market Common, where Military Appreciation Days began eight years ago.  Immediately after the parade, everyone’s invited to the Family Picnic at Valor Memorial Garden, featuring military displays and exhibits, live music from the Andrew Thielen Big Band and a chance to meet Noah Galloway.  For details and parade registration forms, visit  The parade begins at 10:30 a.m., May 28.


5.   Looking ahead to next Saturday, May 7, everyone’s invited to the first-ever Horry County Junior ROTC Drill Meet, featuring seven local high school JROTCs.  This new event for Military Appreciation Days starts at 9:00 a.m. in the Myrtle Beach Pelicans’ parking area, behind TicketReturn.Com Stadium.  Come watch our young men and women perform precision drills in this exciting competition.  Admission is free, of course. 


6.   Now that May is here, seasonal rules go into effect for dogs and bicycles on the beach and boardwalk.  From May 1 through Labor Day, both pets and bicycles are allowed on the beach only before 10:00 a.m. and after 5:00 p.m.  At all times, pets must be on a leash and owners must pick up and properly dispose of any droppings.  Failure to follow the law is a misdemeanor, subject to a fine of up to $500 and/or 30 days in jail, upon conviction.  On the boardwalk, pets and bicycles are allowed only in the mornings, from 5:00 to 10:00 a.m., during the May-through-Labor-Day window.  Of course, pets still must be leashed and droppings properly removed. 


7.   Several dozen volunteers recently turned out to pick up litter and debris at Grand Park and around the Market Common District, and that’s the subject of our Photos of the Week.  The effort was part of Keep America Beautiful grant and resulted in nearly 50 bags of trash, plucked from nooks and crannies around the park.  


8.   Did you know…  That Roscoe, one of the Myrtle Beach Police Department’s K-9s, was rescued from the Grand Strand Humane Society shelter as a puppy and sent off to school to learn drug detection and tracking?  Roscoe-the-rescue appears to be a full-blooded German wirehaired pointer.  The Police Department has two other four-footed K-9 friends:  Alli, a German shepherd, and Kelly, a Belgian malinois. 

Previous Did You Knows are available.
