UPDATE -- SEATING AVAILABILITY AT THE JANUARY 8 FUNERAL OF SGT. GORDON BEST
A walk-through of the Alabama Theater today included identification of seating available for the funeral under COVID-19 restrictions. The end result is that only the family, all North Myrtle Beach Public Safety personnel, dignitaries, and invited Masons (Sgt. Best was a Mason) can be seated. No other seats are available.
Because the family would like the public to be able to experience the funeral, they have authorized a videographer to live-stream the entire funeral on VIMEO. We will publicize the link to that live-stream for all to access when we receive it.
The City is also looking into live-streaming the funeral on a jumbotron in one section of the parking lot at the Alabama Theater. We will let you know if that is a "go" tomorrow.
We appreciate your patience.
