MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – The Myrtle Beach City Council took time during Tuesday’s meeting to recognize some of the area’s youngest residents for all they did to give back to the community in 2016.

According to information on the city of Myrtle Beach’s Facebook page, the Myrtle Beach Pelicans’ Cheer and Dance Team was honored for providing more than 150 hours of community service last year.

The squad, whose members are between the ages of 6 and 12, gave the council a cheer before going around the dais to shake the members’ hands.

“Those girls were so excited,” said Summer McLaurin, with the cheer and dance team.

Some of the squad’s accomplishments in 2016 were:

  • Collecting a trailer full of toys during a BBQ on the Beach Toys for Tots event
  • Performing at Lillypalooza, which benefited a young girl in the community who is battling cancer
  • Taking part in the American Heart Association’s Heart Walk.

For 2017, McLaurin said the team is looking to double both their number of community service hours and their members, which was at 19 last year.

One thing that will not change is the team’s mission to give back.

“The team was actually formed for being in the community and helping the kids get those experiences,” McLaurin said.
