The Friday Fax Weekly Memo


Posted Wednesday, November 26, 2014


A printable .pdf of the Friday Fax is available.


1.   The week’s meeting schedule and agendas are available City offices and facilities are closed Thursday and Friday, November 27 and 28.  If you’re traveling during the holiday, remember to wear your seat belt!  We wish you a safe and happy Thanksgiving.     


2.   The City of Myrtle Beach will celebrate Arbor Day at 11:00 a.m. Monday, December 1, at Grand Strand Medical Center’s Cardiac Rehab Unit on 82nd Parkway.  This year’s tree plantings will include one in honor of long-time hospital administrator Doug White, who retired in 2013.  White joined GSMC in 1995 and led the hospital through unprecedented growth in staff and services.  During his tenure, the hospital expanded from 172 beds to 269, began a cardiac surgery program, became a Level II trauma center and opened several outpatient facilities, including South Strand Medical Center.  Also Monday, the Community Appearance Board will present its annual awards for landscaping and tree preservation, and the city will receive its 18th Tree City USA honor.  See the attached agenda for details. 


3.   The swimming pool at Pepper Geddings Recreation Center will close at 2:00 p.m., Saturday, December 6, for an extended period due to building repairs.  All aquatics programs, including swim lessons, water fitness classes, swim teams and open swim times, will move to Canal Street Recreation Center for the duration of the closure.  The work at Pepper Geddings includes roof replacement and installation of new pool filters. 


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.   Myrtle Beach is again participating in Coast RTA’s “Coats for Kids” campaign, with drop-off locations at five city buildings.  Donations of new and gently worn coats, jackets, sweaters, gloves, hats and blankets are accepted.  Collection boxes are available through December 9 at City Hall, the City Services Building, Chapin Memorial Library, the Ted C. Collins Law Enforcement Center and the Law Enforcement Center Annex near The Market Common.  Distribution of donated items will occur Saturday, December 13.  


6.   Last Friday’s oath of office and badge-pinning ceremony for eight new Myrtle Beach police officers is the subject of our Photos of the Week The eight just graduated from the South Carolina Criminal Justice Academy.  In all, new police officers receive 36 weeks of training, including 12 weeks of pre-service instruction, 12 weeks at the S.C. Criminal Justice Academy and 12 weeks of in-service experience with current staff.     


7.   Did you know…  That the City of Myrtle Beach has a year-round curfew from 1:00 to 6:00 a.m. for juveniles who are under age 18?  The curfew was adopted in 2010 and makes it a misdemeanor for a minor to be in a public place during the curfew hours.  It also is a misdemeanor for the minor’s parent or guardian to allow or permit the minor to remain in a public place during curfew hours.  Exceptions to the juvenile curfew include when the minor is accompanied by the parent or guardian, involved in an emergency or on an errand necessitated by an emergency, going directly to or from employment, on an errand directed by the parent or guardian, in a vehicle engaged in interstate travel, on the sidewalk abutting the minor’s home, attending an adult-supervised recreational activity sponsored by the city or a similar civic organization, exercising protected First Amendment rights or married or otherwise legally emancipated.
