Make Someone's May Day

.

.

Miss America’s National Day of Community Service was held on Saturday, April 18. The Loris Chamber of Commerce along with Miss Loris Breanna Barfield, Miss Loris Teen Grace Andreucci, Miss Loris Bog-Off Festival Teen Hope Richardson and other sister queens  hosted a National Day of Community Service at the Courtyard on Main from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. They were helping the United Way of Horry County with their Make Someone’s May Day program. This is a program where individuals can donate items to fill up a May Day bag for senior citizens in Horry County. Donated items were dropped off during the event on Saturday at the Courtyard on Main. The Chamber’s goal was to fill at least 100 bags but they filled over 200 bags. Left to right are: Miss Loris Breanna Barfield, Little Miss Loris Bog-Off Festival Allie Carroll, Miss Loris Bog-Off Festival Teen Hope Richardson, Palmetto Princess Willow Holmes, Miss Loris Teen Grace Andreucci, Young Miss Loris Bog-Off Festival Savannah Turner and Palmetto Princess Payton Holmes. Palmetto Princess Paige Ammons was there earlier but had to leave.

Council begins search for

.

new administrator


.
By Cheryll Wilbur
Loris Public Safety and Public Works Joint Committee meeting and a Special Council Meeting were held on Monday, April 20. The agenda included discussion and authorization for repairs of city fire hydrants, advertising for a city administrator, temporary administrative services, as well as approval of the re-appointment of Dan Gray, Horry County League of Cities Board member for the Solid Waste Authority.
Chief Jerry Hardee presented a list of needs for discussion.  Interim Public Works Director Robert Turner discussed the hydrant cost and manpower needed. City council voted to move forward for the safety of the city.
The second item on the agenda was discussion about filling the position of city administrator. Council agreed to search and advertise but also to look for temporary administrative services to help until a full time city administrator is appointed.  
Council also voted for the re-appointment of Dan Gray for the Horry County League of Cities Board Member for the Solid Waste Authority.  This will be his fourth year representing the Myrtle Beach and Surfside areas.
The Loris City Council does its best to serve the Loris citizens by making their decisions based on facts and needs of the Loris community.  There are many years of experience within the council that direct our path as a community. They should be commended on their efforts.

Queens exceed set goal

The rain did not stop us from having a great Miss America Serves Day. This past Saturday we held our first National Day of Community Service in the Courtyard on Main from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Our local Miss South Carolina contestants, palmetto princesses and bog-off queens did a great job filling United Way of Horry County Make Someone’s May Day bags for homebound senior citizens. A big thanks to Miss Loris Breanna Barfield, Miss Loris Teen Grace Andreucci, Miss Loris Bog-Off Festival Teen Hope Richardson, Palmetto Princesses Paige Ammons, Payton Holmes and Willow Holmes, Young Miss Loris Bog-Off Festival Savannah Turner, Little Miss Loris Bog-Off Festival Allie Carroll and their parents. Our goal was to fill 100 bags and these girls more than doubled our goal at 221 bags filled and still counting. We are still collecting items for the bags this week. If you would like to donate items such as toothpaste, toothbrushes, tissues, soap/body wash, deodorant, shampoo, lotion/powder, stationary, pens, first aid kits, aspirin and maybe a special gift (i.e. socks, crossword puzzles, night light) we would love to have them.
