It has been great to see the residents of Surfside Beach coming together to celebrate activities in the town.From the Tree Lighting at Town Hall on December 3rd, to the Christmas Golf Cart Parade on December 5th, to the Ground Breaking for the Pier Restoration Project on December 7th, to the Surfside Beach Christmas Parade last Saturday, everyone had a great time. These were times when residents can get together and celebrate with each other how fortunate we are to live in such a beautiful town.


Please check on your neighbors during the the holiday season, and be mindful of people that are less fortunate.
