(Written by Monty Craig, VP CSPOA)
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:
(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?

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
RALLY FOR A CURE
A Rally For A Cure breast cancer tournament will be held on April 20,
2006 at Carolina Shores, hosted by the CSLGA. The awarding of prizes and
a luncheon will be held at the clubhouse following golf.

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,

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.
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 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 email@example.com 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.

Norma, Olive Condite, Roasted Red peppers with oil and garlic, Pasta con
il cavolfiore e la ricotta, Cassata Casalinga, Caponata, Pasta e fugiola,

NEW HORIZONS SINGLES
This month we didn’t have a regular meeting. Instead we all went
to the VFW for St. Patrick’s Day Corned Beef and Cabbage dinner.
Pat Fensler made a tasty soda bread and Mary Wilson made a delicious Pumpkin
Nut dessert. It was a wonderful dinner.
Ann Witzel was our guest speaker for the March meeting. Her topic - The
Benefits of Exercise. She gave us hints to improve health. These included
walking, eating lean meats and poultry, don't eat late at night and skip
buffets. As she put it "Remember how I look and feel are more important
than overeating." She took the group through some warm-up exercises
and then we did a short workout. Later she demonstrated the art of belly
dancing. Thank you Ann, for getting us up and on our feet.
DATE: THURSDAY, MAY 10

DO YOU EMAIL?
The POA is putting together an email distribution list of as many members as we possibly can to be used as a tool to get important information out to people quickly. This list will be maintained by the Board and will not be shared with or used by any person or group other than the POA Board of Directors. In addition, if you are willing, we will add your email address to the next edition of the POA Telephone Directory (to be published in early summer). If you have an email address, please send an email note (including your real name and your street address, so we know who sent the note!) to: firstname.lastname@example.org (Joyce Davis's email address). Indicate whether you want to be on the email distribution and/or included in the telephone directory. 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.
