The Friday Fax Weekly Memo

   
 

Posted Friday, February 5, 2016


   
 

A printable .pdf of the Friday Fax is available.

 

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

 

2.   Free tickets are available – while they last! – for the upcoming performance by the US Air Force Heritage Brass band.  The concert is at 4:00 p.m., Saturday, February 13, at Beach Church, 557 George Bishop Parkway.   As of today, a few hundred seats remain.  We’re going to have a great audience for this event!  Tickets are available at the Myrtle Beach City Hall or the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce, until they run out. 

 

3.   The Seniors Advisory Committee and the A.A.R.P. are hosting a Caregiving Forum at 10:00 a.m., Tuesday, February 16, at the Myrtle Beach Train Depot.  Are you providing care for an elderly relative or friend?  Do you have questions about senior issues?  Attend this free program and learn more about caregiving challenges and resources.  A question-and-answer session is included. 

 

4.   The Myrtle Beach City Council welcomes everyone to a Town Hall Meeting at 6:00 p.m., Wednesday, February 24, at the Base Recreation Center.  Residents, especially those at The Market Common and other south-end neighborhoods, are encouraged to bring their ideas and concerns in person to Council members.  Look for additional Town Hall Meetings at future dates and locations. 

 

5.   Attention, newspeople!  High school students throughout Horry County are currently building robots from scratch to compete in the upcoming Palmetto Regional FIRST Robotics Competition.  This fast-paced, international event is Thursday through Saturday, February 25-27, at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center.  Sixty-six teams of high school students from the East Coast and Canada are building robots to compete in “Stronghold,” this year’s challenge.  Reporters:  Visiting the local high schools would make a great story!  The school teams also welcome mentors and sponsors from the community.  And we still need a few volunteers for the tournament at the Convention Center.  Teams warm up Thursday, February 25, followed by two days of intense competition.  Admission is free, and the public is invited to come watch these talented students and their creations.  Some volunteer positions require technical knowledge, but most don’t.  Both new and previous volunteers need to register at https://my.usfirst.org/FIRSTPortal/Login/vims_login.aspx.  

 

6.   Temporary political signs are allowed beginning 45 days before an election or primary and must be removed by the candidate or property owner within five days after the election or primary.   However, such signs are not allowed on public property, public rights-of-way or utility poles.  They also may not obstruct drivers' vision at intersections.  Temporary political signs cannot exceed four square feet in size (two-by-two feet or one-by-three feet, for example) and cannot be taller than four feet.  City staff will pick up illegally placed signs on public property.

 

7.   Myrtle Beach Senior’s Advisory Committee met this past week at the F.G. Burroughs-S.B. Chapin Art Museum on South Ocean Boulevard and received a tour of the building and its exhibits, and that’s the subject of our Photos of the WeekThe art museum has four visually exciting exhibits at the moment. 

 

8.   Did you know…  That the City of Myrtle Beach offers a “backdoor service” for our elderly or disabled residential solid waste customers?  City staff will collect and return your pelican to the backdoor for those residents who aren’t able to roll it out to the curb and back each week.  An application is required for this special service.  Contact the Solid Waste Division at 843-918-2160 for more information.

Previous Did You Knows are available.
