Happy Birthday Myrtle Beach! 1938-2008!

16 03 2008

I attended the first ever “State of the City Address” by Mayor John Rhodes (personal friend) and Myrtle Beach’s 70th Birthday Celebration 1938-2008!         

The theme was “It’s Time Again.”  Can you believe that we have addressed some 518 issues concerning our city’s growth and improvement out of about 589 issues—that’s over 500……  We are something Special!  You can get the full story on Myrtle Beach and its achievements at www.cityofmyrtlebeach.com.  

Can you believe that one of our accomplishments was to host the republican debate and the democrat debate in January 2008!  “First in the South”  All of our municipalities and the Myrtle Beach Chamber produced a world-class event!  Sand Sculptures of the Candidates!!! WOW!    It was great seeing “old” friends (I say that lovingly).  John Rhodes, our Mayor, and friend since the opening of the Myrtle Beach Hilton days; Dr. Sal Rini (delivered my son in 1985);  Ellen Benik Thompson (the first person I ever met in Myrtle Beach), Terry Springs (the daughter of Jack and Sarah Springs—Tony’s Restaurant on NMB) and Gary Loftus (from my hotel days) were in attendance.  I moved here in 1972 and started work at the Hilton (Yes, the Myrtle Beach HILTON) in 1974!  I love Myrtle Beach!  And I believe I saw John get a little choked up last night when he said he loved Myrtle Beach, too!  There’s just something about Myrtle Beach that captures your heart! You can get the full story on Myrtle Beach and its achievements at www.cityofmyrtlebeach.com or you can check out the chamber website to the right.  They’re always looking for civic-minded volunteers to help–get connected! 

All of this is reason to Celebrate South Carolina!  Come See, Come Live!  Myrtle Beach!
