We are coming upon some changes in Town Hall today with the departure Administrator. William “Bill” Shanahan. We wish him well in his new job in Newport, NC. Fire Chief Rob Clemons will be taking over as the Interim Town Administrator until a replacement is hired. We give our regards and well wishes to Public Information Officer, Robert Blomquist. His last day will be December 21st. We wish him well in his new endeavor.
Wednesday morning, I had the pleasure of going to the soft opening for the Milk & Honey Coffee Café. The owner is a gentleman named Mason Zeglen. They offer signature coffee, and freshly baked pastries, and will soon be expanding into a brunch menu. Mason is the chef and a graduate of the New England Culinary Institute. He is a two-time winner of “Guy’s Grocery Games” on the Food Network. He was a contestant on “The Big Brunch” on HBOMAX. He plans to have a ribbon-cutting event after January 1st. Milk & Honey is located at 351 Business 17-N in the Surfside Plaza Shopping Center. Come meet Mason and his crew for delicious coffee, tea and pastry.
Several events this weekend include Breakfast with Santa at the Golden Egg Pancake House. The Breakfast starts at 9 a.m., Reservations are required. Call the Golden Egg (843-238-4923) to reserve your seat. This wonderful event is a joy to see with the kids.
I hope to see you tomorrow at the Christmas Golf Cart Parade starting at 1 p.m. Parade participants should check in at the 13th Street Ave S parking lot. To participate, register your family before 5 p.m. today at www.surfsidebeach.org/2022ChristmasGolfCartParade. Awards will be given to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners. Once again, I wish to say a thank you to Robert Blomquist for all his hard work in putting together these events with KSBB.
With the changing of administrators, and the continued messages from residents about concerns that Council Members are not working together in our Town, I am making it my initiative to do my best to improve these important relationships. There will be more about this to come in the weeks ahead.
From my family to yours, we wish you all Happy Holidays and all the best.
Stay safe, God Bless
Bob Hellyer - Mayor
