PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE:

(Written by Monty Craig, VP CSPOA)
Regretfully, the CSPOA Board of Directors has received the Resignation of Peg McDonald from the Board, and as our President. At the Membership Board Meeting held on Monday, March 20, 2006, I read the following brief statement concerning Peg's unexpected departure from the Board...
"On Saturday, March 18, 2006, CSPOA Board Members received the unexpected and immediately effective resignation of Peg McDonald as President and Member of the CSPOA Board of Directors. Peg indicated that health issues facing her, her husband, and her brother and sister in Florida had escalated to the point where she could no longer devote the considerable time required to perform her duties with the CSPOA. I know that we all wish her well in assisting her family and caring for herself."
Peg's departure has created a vacancy on the Board, and in accordance with Article VI, Section 6 of the CSPOA By-laws, the Board of Directors will commence to fill this vacancy.
In last month's edition of the Bulletin, Peg McDonald indicated that Membership Meetings such as held on March 20, 2006 would be held on a bimonthly basis. Membership Meetings for the balance of 2006 will be held in May, July, September, and November. Specific dates for each of the Meetings will be published in upcoming issues of the Bulletin. To avoid the need for changing "projected" dates, the determination for each month will be made approximately 3-4 weeks prior to the Meeting.
As Peg also mentioned, the Board has determined the time is right to expand the Board from five to seven members. The process for increasing the number of authorized Board Members is described in Article VI, Section 6 of the CSPOA By-laws. Whereas the appointment of a new Director to fill a vacancy on the existing Board shall be made by the Board, the addition of two new Directors requires an election at the Annual Meeting, or at a Special Meeting of Members called for that purpose. At present, the Board is concentrating on filling the current vacancy, and will then proceed with determining an appropriate timeframe for increasing the number of Directors.
Please be sure that you have a copy of the CSPOA Declaration of Restrictions, and the By-laws. Compared to most Planned Communities, our Declaration of Restrictions and By-laws are very compact, clear, and full of information you need to know as a Resident and Member of the Carolina Shores Property Owners Association.
Thank you...Monty.

BOARD COMMITTEES

The CS Board has completed a review and remodeling of our Board Standing Committees. As a result, we have two standing committees in need of members:
(1) The Recreation Committee. This group's responsibility will be all of the social activities sponsored by the Board, along with rules and regulations for the social use of the pool, picnic area, and clubhouse. The first task for this group will be to review the current Board social schedule (3 picnics and a holiday party) and determine whether these are still the best events to meet the needs of our growing and changing community. For example, should the Board host a family Halloween Party? Do we need three picnics? How about a golf event or a tennis tournament or some other sporting event? Could the Board sponsor occasional entertainment or instructional activities? The possibilities are wide open.
For this committee we would like a team of folks representing all the age groups and interests in the community. Would you be willing to volunteer? Can you suggest anyone for me to call and ask?

(2) The Audit and Finance Committee. This committee provides guidelines for handling the financial affairs of the Association; submits a quarterly report; provides an annual balance sheet and profit and loss statement; and makes recommendations to the Board regarding management of the Association's finances.

We now have a Board Treasurer -- Bill Harniman -- so this committee will not do any of the day-to-day accounting oversight. Their role will be more at the policy level -- ensuring that we follow appropriate financial management principals and make sound financial decisions. This committee will be chaired by Maslin Kain. She needs several additional residents who have financial experience or interest to join the team. Could you do this? Can you recommend someone who might?
Please email your response to me ASAP -tozbeach@hotmail.com -- we want to get started on these new endeavors!

HANDYMAN SERVICES NEEDED BY BOARD

The Board of Directors would like to develop a short list of skilled handymen or handywomen who live in Carolina Shores and are interested in being called on to handle everyday maintenance and improvement projects for the POA. People who are interested in being on this list should deliver a resume or list of skills, licenses, and certifications to the POA office and ask for an interview with the Board.


ACC NEEDS VOLUNTEERS

The ACC is in need of at least five more volunteers. Many of the people who have generously staffed the ACC for years have retired, or will be retiring shortly. When we chose Carolina Shores, we chose a Restricted Community. We wanted to live in a place that did not have rows of identical houses. We did not want fences obstructing our views. We did want protection from unscrupulous builders but most of all we wanted Carolina Shores to be what it was always meant to be, clean, orderly, peaceful and beautiful.
To Volunteer call the office at 579-2044

BOARD APPROVES OFFICE ASSISTANT POSITION

The Carolina Shores POA Board of Directors has created a new, part-time position in the POA office. The job will be titled "Office Assistant." It will be a part-time position (exact days and hours to be determined), acting as assistant to the Office Manager. Candidates for the job should have experience in standard office activities, including customer service and computer applications such as word processing and calendaring. If you are interested in this job please bring a short resume to the POA office ASAP. The position will be filled as quickly as possible.


NEED A LITTLE HELP?

CALL THE CAROLINA SHORES CARE TEAM

The all-new, eager to help our neighbors, Carolina Shores Care Team is ready to go to work. The team already has 20 members who are available to help anyone in Carolina Shores who is injured, ill or otherwise in need of some assistance with everyday activities. Care Team members will fix you some meals, take your trash to the dump, walk your dog, feed your pets, clean your cat litter, do simple housework or yardwork, drive you to an appointment, pick up your prescriptions or groceries, sit with a homebound neighbor while the regular caregiver takes a break, visit the lonesome, or just make a friendly “how are you” phone call to someone who is alone. To get some help all you need to do is telephone the Care Team Coordinator, Mary Pritchard, 579-4684. She will locate the right Care Team volunteer for your task.

CARE TEAM NEEDS A FREEZER

The Carolina Shores Care Team would like to locate an unused (or underused) freezer that someone is willing to donate for the good of the community. We would use this freezer as a central storage place where anyone could contribute a cooked meal to be kept frozen for later use by a person unable to cook for themselves. Our Frozen Meal Pantry would be run on the honor system – anyone who needs help with a meal would be welcome to go and take one out. Anyone who has some extra casserole (or other meals) would be asked to donate it to the Pantry. We would love to place a freezer in the POA building to ensure easy access – but if we can’t do that yet we will happily settle for a few shelves in somebody’s garage freezer. If you have a freezer or some space please call Joyce Dunn Davis, 575-0825.

RECREATION

It has come to my attention that pets are being allowed to run loose on the tennis courts. Please note that pets (dogs, cats & etc.) are not allowed on the tennis courts or inside of the fence. Your cooperation in this matter is greatly appreciated. Also remember there is a leash law in Carolina Shores.

INTERESTED IN A BIKE CLUB?

Own a motorcycle? Thinking about buying one? Let's get together! Several of us novice riders have talked about forming a Carolina Shores Bike club. It would be an opportunity to get together on a regular basis to share info, plan group trips, etc. If this peaks your interest, call Charles McIntyre at 570-4403 or email at: Phyllimac@ATMC.net.

BRUNSWICK STEW

We made about 20 servings too much of our delicious Brunswick Stew. It costs $7 for a generous serving and comes frozen. Each container also comes with a corn muffin. To order some for yourself please call Teddy Altreuter at 579-1057 or Ann Nice at 575-2166. We've been told it is nice to have in your own freezer to provide an occasional "respite" meal for a friend who is ill, too.
All the money goes to support the work of the Brunswick County Literacy Council which works to improve the reading skills of the people of our County.

BOOK CLUB

Carolina Shores Book Discussion Group met on March 17th at 9:30 a.m. in the POA library. There were 11 members present.
Our book for this month was “Light On Snow” by Anita Shreve
It is a novel set in a bitter New England winter. Anita Shreve’s description of the cold winter scenery contributes to the overall sense of isolation of the landscape and the main characters, a father and his 12 year old daughter (who is narrating the story). The story begins with the discovery of an abandoned newborn in the snowy woods and leads us down the path of discovery and redemption.
The consensus of the group was that we liked the book, that it was a quick and easy read. Many positive comments were made about this book and some other Shreve books, “All He Ever Wanted”, “The Weight of Water” and “The Pilot’s Wife”.
Next month (April) is poetry month. Instead of a book, we will be meeting at the POA library at 10:00 a.m. to listen to local author and book club member, Kitty McDonough read poetry. After that we will be having lunch at Café Latte. If you would like to join us for lunch, please call Mary at 575-5845 or send an email to mdilettuso@atmc.net, so that we can include you in our reservations.
On May 19th we will be joining the Hickman Book Club group at the Hickman Library at 10:00 a.m. to hear guest speaker and Wilmington author Jack Fryar. He will be speaking about the history of Wilmington and surrounding areas. He will bring some of his books to this meeting. If you are interested in purchasing them, please bring cash or checks. If you are new to this area, this would be an interesting way to learn more about our beautiful and historical North Carolina coast.
On June 16th at 9:30 a.m. we will be discussing two books before our summer break. They will be “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time” by Mark Haddon and also “The Kite Runner” by Khaled Hosseini. Please join us if you can. The more folks we have, the livelier the discussion will be.

TENNIS

All current and former tennis players please mark April 22nd on your calendar. We are planning to hold a mixed doubles round robin that morning starting at 9:00am, with a brunch immediately following tennis. All players, and non-players, attending the brunch should bring a dish to share; and, as usual, BYOB. There will be a sign-up sheet posted on the bulletin board at the courts.
Open tennis continues every Mon., Wed. & Fri. @ 9:00am. All POA members are invited to play. The weather is warming up so don't forget to bring along your own drinking water. We are still waiting for our water fountain to be installed.

CAROLINA SHORES QUILTERS GUILD

The Carolina Shores Quilters Guild met for their monthly meeting March 10, we had 29 members and one quest present. After our business meeting we enjoyed another great show and tell and then enjoyed a workshop led by Lucy Timmerman on making Silk Ribbon Embroidery.
In 2005 the quilters made and donated to the Ronald McDonald in Durham 84 quilts, 39 pair of booties, 12 cloth books, and 6 afghans. We enjoy making the quilts as much as the recipients enjoy receiving them. Recipes from guests and employees of the Ronald McDonald House are available for sale through the Quilters Guild. A donation of $20.00 will help the Ronald McDonald with their endeavors.
Our next meeting will be at the POA on April 14 at 9:30. We will have a business meeting followed by show and tell. we will not have a workshop due to this meeting being on Good Friday.

NEEDLEWORK CLUB TO PUT IT ALL TOGETHER

On Monday, April 24, the Carolina Shores Needlework Club will meet at 9am at the CSPOA Clubhouse to assemble some afghans to help warm up Brunswick County. Club members and friends and neighbors who have been knitting and crocheting 7” squares out of leftover yarn are asked to bring the squares to the clubhouse and help match them into attractive groupings and stitch them together. Whatever we complete will then be donated to the Brunswick County Sheriff to be distributed to county residents who are victims of violence or other personal tragedies. Club members hope that the gift of a handmade afghan will let these people know that someone is thinking of them at a very difficult time. Club member Betty Bebber has already completed two entire afghans using yarn donated to the club by Diana Mardall. Now let’s see what everyone else has been able to do! See you on April 24th.

NEW FRIENDS

NEW FRIENDS SHARE IRISH STORIES

The Carolina Shores New Friends’ March meeting, led by Eva Jensen, opened up by having everyone there tell whether they have any Irish heritage and then share stories related to that heritage. Several new residents participated for the first time. Mary Pritchard thanked everyone for their regular contributions to the Interfaith Food Bank and announced that Belk Department Stores are holding Belk Charity Days March 31 – April, where for a $5 donation to the food pantry shoppers can get a coupon good for 20% off on purchases. Flo Pflaster & Joyce Davis announced that the Needlework Club will hold a special meeting at the POA on April 24 to assemble all donated knit or crochet squares into afghans that will be donated to the Brunswick County Sheriff to distribute to victims of violence. Grayce Farley reported that the New Friends trip for lunch at the Culinary School at Georgetown Tech was a great success, with 22 people attending and everyone enjoying a great meal. Jo O’Keefe reminded the group to take photos at club meetings and community social activities and events and send them to webmaster@carolinashores.info so they can be included on the website. The next meeting of the New Friends will be on Tuesday, April 11, at 10 a.m. at the clubhouse. The Carolina Shores New Friends group is a monthly gathering of S residents who are interested in meeting some new friends, enjoying some old ones, sharing useful information about the area, and joining together for regular social and recreational events. New residents – as well as long-time residents – are always welcome to join this group. Come with your questions to ask or your good ideas to share.

Pat and Bob have been visiting Carolina Shores for some time as Pat's mother has been a resident here for quite awhile. They moved here from Freeport, Long Island. Bob was a Union Carpenter and Pat was an office manager. She is thinking of maybe going back to work but for right now they are putting their home and yard together and spending time doing what they love - enjoying the beach! Bob has a beautiful motorcycle and they like riding. He also likes fishing. Pat has a flair for decorating and is planning to do lots of baking.

THANKS

There is no way to express my thanks and gratitude to my many friends and neighbors for their prayers, cards, phone calls as well as dinners and flowers after my recent stroke. You are truly “special” people here in Carolina Shores. I am improving slowly but hope to accomplish my goals in record time.
Thanks again and God Bless you all.
