[ARCHIVED] Mayor Hellyer's Weekly Update - Nov. 11, 2022

Mayor Hellyers Weekly Update

The weather has improved since yesterday. 

Our Veterans Day Service was moved to the Civic Center, but now will be in Memorial Park as originally scheduled. The service will start promptly at 2 p.m.. Our guest speaker will be a Surfside Beach resident. I am looking forward to hearing about Mr. Turek’s experiences. He is 94 years old, served 26 years in the U.S. Army during World War II, Korea, and Vietnam and retired as a Lieutenant Colonel. Join us as we pay tribute to those who have bravely served our country.

Our current forecast for tropical storm Nicole is:

The threat of isolated tornadoes is expected to diminish late morning and early Friday afternoon.

Nonetheless, our entire area is at a SLIGHT RISK for the development of tornadoes through Friday.

Please use caution and secure any loose items around your home.

Just like you, I was most excited to hear the news on Thursday, November 3rd, that the Town of Surfside Beach entered into a lease agreement with Painter’s Ice Cream for a retail location on the new pier. We look forward to working with them.  

We had another successful Family Festival. I hope you had as much of a good time as I and my family did. This is the time of year when we look for ways to help those in need of support. Help if you can. That we share our resources and time when available. And that we get ‘in the mood’ for the coming holidays. I look forward to seeing you out and about. The upcoming events that you will be hearing more about include: 

Thursday 11-24-22 Turkey Trot – 8:30 a.m. Yaupon Parking Lot
Friday 12-2-22 Christmas Tree Lighting – 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. – Memorial Park

Saturday 12-17-22 Breakfast with Santa – 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. – The Golden Egg and

A huge shout-out to all of our town employees that make these events possible………
