The Friday Fax Weekly Memo


Posted Friday, May 20, 2016


A printable .pdf of the Friday Fax is available.


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


2.     Are you a non-swimmer?  If so, everyone age five and up is invited to basic swim lessons next week to help you survive in the water.  Called “Splash Without Cash,” the free swim lessons are offered annually, but this is the first year that teens and adults of any age are welcome to participate.  Again, the program is for non-swimmers, and space is limited.  Call 843-918-1463 or 918-1476 to register.  The class meets Monday through Thursday at Mary C. Canty Recreation Center.  Please select one of these times to attend each day:  4:00 to 4:30 p.m., 4:40 to 5:10 p.m., 5:20 to 5:50 p.m. or 6:00 to 6:30 p.m. 


3.   The Military Appreciation Days Parade and Family Picnic are next Saturday, May 28, in The Market Common.  The parade steps off at 10:30 a.m. on Howard Avenue and Farrow Parkway with US Army veteran Noah Galloway as the Grand Marshal.  We’ll announce the parade from the corner of Farrow Parkway and Hackler Street.  Immediately after the parade, join us in Valor Memorial Garden for the big Family Picnic, featuring picnic fare from the Omar Chefs Shiners, live music from the Andrew Thielen Big Band and lots of exhibits and displays.  You’ll have a chance to meet Noah Galloway, too!  Military Appreciation Days are sponsored by PGBA, Inc., the City of Myrtle Beach and the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce.  Visit


4.   Attention media folks…  Noah Galloway will meet with visiting injured and wounded soldiers at 9:00 a.m., Saturday, May 28, at the Sheraton Convention Center Hotel.  As part of the weekend’s activities, the community hosts two dozen or more service men and women recovering from injuries at hospitals in North Carolina, Virginia and the D.C. area.  Immediately after the visit, which you’re welcome to attend, Galloway will be available for brief interviews (about 9:10), but will have to head out for the parade.  If your organization plans to have a reporter there, please send us an e-mail early next week with their name and affiliation.  


5.   A new map application is available at with details about traffic during the upcoming Atlantic Beach Memorial Day Bikefest weekend.  The extended traffic loop will be in effect from 10:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m., Friday, Saturday and Sunday, May 27-29, and is designed to keep traffic moving.  For more information about what to expect on Ocean Boulevard and elsewhere during the busy Memorial Day weekend, visit


6.   The second annual Blue Stripes and Red Lights Flag Football Game a few weekends ago is the subject of our Photos of the Week.  Myrtle Beach police and fire personnel teamed up with youngsters from the Boys and Girls Club for a fun game of flag football at Ashley Booth Field.  Bragging rights were at stake, but the real goal was establishing a positive relationship between our public servants and the young people they serve in the community.


7.   Did you know…  That Chapin Memorial Library has “book clubs in a bag” that you can check out for your group?  Each kit has a number of copies of the same book and a leadership guide to help with the discussion.  Popular titles include The Kite Runner, The Aviator’s Wife and Life After Life, to name just a few.  Looking to start a book club with your friends this summer?  Call or visit Chapin Memorial Library! 

Previous Did You Knows are available.
