The Friday Fax Weekly Memo


Posted Friday, May 22, 2015


A printable .pdf of the Friday Fax is available.


1.   The week’s meeting schedule and agendas are available  Note that Monday (Memorial Day) is not a city holiday.  As a result, city offices and facilities will be open as usual on Monday, May 25.  Solid waste collection and recycling will occur as usual on Monday, May 25, and throughout the week.  Note also that the regular City Council workshop will be held at 1:00 p.m. in Council Chamber at the Ted C. Collins Law Enforcement Center, prior to the regular 2:00 p.m. meeting.       

2.   Our Military Appreciation Days continue next week with a Veterans March, Memorial Day ceremonies and a display of Vietnam-era helicopters.  The Veterans March on Ocean Boulevard begins at 9:00 a.m. and travels from 16th Avenue North to Ninth Avenue North, for a brief ceremony there.  Since parking downtown may be at a premium Monday morning, veterans may park at TicketReturn.Com Field, where a shuttle will take them to and from the beginning of the walk.  At 11:00 a.m., the traditional Memorial Day Remembrance Ceremony will be held on the Plaza at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center.  The event is co-sponsored by the Grand Strand Patriotic Alliance and the City of Myrtle Beach.  Parking at the Convention Center is free for this event.  Also at the Convention Center this week is a display of six Vietnam-era helicopters and a Jeep, courtesy of the North Carolina Vietnam Helicopter Pilots Association.  The display is free and open to the public.  You’re welcome to climb aboard the helicopters, which will be available through Thursday, May 28. 

3.   Military veterans and the public are invited to view the film “Uncommon Courage:  The D-Day Battle of Graignes,” at 2:00 p.m., Monday, May 25, as part of our Military Appreciation Days events.  This fourth annual veterans’ tribute is presented by the CresCom Bank Center for Military and Veterans Studies at Coastal Carolina University, the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce, Goldfinch Funeral Home and Grand 14 Cinemas.  The film chronicles the extraordinary battle between American paratroopers and German forces, described as “the Alamo of D-Day.”  On-camera commentary includes recollections of a French survivor of the fight, along with observations by former Myrtle Beach Mayor Bob Hirsch, who piloted C-47 troop transports during World War II.  The screening includes public recognition of veterans and active-duty military, patriotic music and a color guard.  Admission is free, with seating on a first-come, first-served basis.  Complimentary refreshments will be available. 

4.   The City of Myrtle Beach’s “umbrellas only” rule on the beach returns on Memorial Day Monday and continues through Labor Day.  For more information, including a print-on-demand flyer for visitors, please see  

5.   The swimming pool at Pepper Geddings Recreation Center re-opened this past Wednesday.  The pool had been closed for several months while the entire roof and HVAC systems were replaced.  The aquatics schedule is returning to normal over the next two weeks, although the pool’s water temperature may be a bit colder than usual for a few days. 

6.   We have a registration date for South Carolina’s Largest Garage Sale!  You can get your vendor spaces beginning at 8:00 a.m., Monday, June 15, both on-line and in person.  This year’s sale is being held on Saturday, August 22. 

7.   Last week’s Military Appreciation Days parade, with Grand Marshal J.R. Martinez, is the subject of our Photos of the Week.  Some 60 units participated in the Ocean Boulevard parade last Saturday, May 16.  This year’s parade and Military Appreciation events also included recognition of Vietnam veterans on the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War.  

8.   Did you know…  That the swimming pool at Pepper Geddings Recreation Center holds 250,000 gallons of water and takes six-and-a-half hours to fill?  By the way, the water temperature is kept in the 85-degree range.

Previous Did You Knows are available.
