What’s up this weekend? 7/22/11 – 7/24/11

It’s been extra hot this week in the Grand Strand.  This trend is likely to continue throughout the next several days.  Welcome to July in South Carolina, I suppose.  Just make sure, if you’re out and about, to keep the signs of heat related illness in mind and protect yourself and your family.  Have a good one!

Is someone in your family dealing with Type 1 diabetes?  In planning for the 1st Annual Walk to Cure Diabetes event, to be held in October 1st, there will be a Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation Family Team Picnic and Kick-Off from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm at Grand Park at the Market Common in Myrtle Beach under Picnic Shelter C.  Hotdogs and chili will be provided.  Please bring a covered side dish (preferably low-carb, if possible) to share and drinks for your family.  During the picnic you’ll learn about the event and how you can become a “Family Team” while the children make a fantastic hand-print banner for the upcoming walk!

It’s Mustang Week in Myrtle Beach!  From 12:00 to 6:00 pm, there will be a “Drive-In” at the Myrtle Beach Mall, where Mustangs of all different types and varieties will be gathered.  At 3:00 pm, awards from the previous day’s car show will be presented.  Good luck to all of the entrants!  As I shared on Facebook, I’ve got a checklist of models I’m hoping to see – Saleen, Cobra, Shelby, and Rousch.  I can’t decide which one I think is coolest.  🙂
