4.   Myrtle Beach is in the running as the “kid-friendliest destination in America,” according to a current USA Today poll, and your vote counts!  You can vote at http://www.10best.com/awards/travel/best-kid-friendly-destination/.  The deadline for balloting is Monday, so please cast your vote if you have a chance!  At last report, Myrtle Beach was in third place and climbing. 

 

5.   Get your tickets by May 1 for the Veterans Dinner Dance on Saturday, May 16, and for the Myrtle Beach Pelicans’ veterans’ night, Thursday, May 14.  These are just two of the many activities scheduled throughout May.  See www.militaryappreciationdays.com for more information, including sign-up forms for the Ocean Boulevard parade on Saturday, May 16.  The Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans Tribute begins at 12:00 p.m., next Saturday, May 2, at St. John the Baptist Greek Orthodox Church’s fellowship hall.  Other events include educational exhibits (the Agent Orange Quilt of Tears and a traveling Vietnam Memorial Wall) on May 14-16, the Ocean Boulevard Parade and Family Picnic on May 16, two golf tournaments and the May 16 dinner dance.  For more information about the Iraq and Afghanistan tribute event, contact Rolling Thunder’s Bill DeVaughn at 843-685-1793.  For more about the Vietnam War 50th anniversary events, contact VVA 925’s Gary McCormick at 843-504-5701 or Ron Thornton at 843-750-0420.

7.   It’s another busy weekend, sports-tourism-wise.  We have 370 soccer teams on the Grand Strand for McDonald’s Coast Spring Classic, the largest youth soccer tournament ever held in South Carolina.  Boys’ and girls’ teams from South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia and Virginia will be competing at the Grand Park Athletic Complex, Doug Shaw Memorial Stadium, Ashley Booth Field, the North Myrtle Beach Sports Park and Socastee Park.  Also this weekend, the Myrtle Beach Sports Center is hosting 53 boys’ basketball teams in grades three through eight, while the Ned Donkle Field Complex near Pepper Geddings Recreation Center is hosting 11 girls’ softball teams.  On Sunday, the Myrtle Beach Convention Center has more than 1,000 college cheerleaders competing in the Beach Bash College U Championships.  Cheer squads and mascots are from NCAA Division II and III, NAIA and junior and community colleges. 

 

8.   The addition of a new four-footed officer at the Myrtle Beach Police Department is the subject of our Photos of the Week.  Thanks to funds provided by the Myrtle Beach Woman’s Club, the city added its third K-9 in March.  “Kelly,” a 16-month old Belgian malinois, completed a four-week training program with her human partner, Police Officer First Class Michael Householder.  K-9 Kelly is certified as a controlled substance detection and tracking dog.  

 

9.   Did you know…  That the Myrtle Beach Police Department has three K-9 officers currently?  They are Alli, a German shepherd; Roscoe, a German wirehaired pointer; and Kelly, a Belgian malinois.  All three K-9s are trained in drug detection and tracking. 

Previous Did You Knows are available.
