PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE:

Dear Neighbors,

For the CSPOA Board of Directors it has been a busy but exciting summer. We are especially pleased with the good work being done by the Standing Committees of the Board, so I wanted to share their work with you.

The Recreation Committee (Chairs Bob Anthony & Sandy Howard) jumped into action, with committee member Tammy Humphreys examining the lack of family and child oriented activities in the community. She began by looking for volunteers to teach tennis to children. Bob Anthony, Martin Minder, and Pat O’Leary took on this task and already are teaching weekly lessons to a group of 12-15 kids. Tammy then asked the New Friends to expand their August 19 Pool Party & Potluck Dinner to include a back to school celebration for families with children. The New Friends welcomed the idea, and are looking forward to sharing a fun evening with some younger “new friends.” The Recreation Committee also is looking into options like regular bingo games at the POA; forming a travel club to do day and overnight trips; and finding more volunteers to teach golf, art, crafts, photography, etc. to children or adults. They also are developing recommendations for the Board on how to incorporate some time at the pool for adults-only swimming. Committee member Mary Fran Ryon has done a spectacular job of chairing our two summer picnics (with help from some great volunteers). She is already hard at work on the Labor Day picnic and welcomes new ideas and new volunteers!


The Communications Committee (chair, Bob Jones) has been busy reviewing ways to expand our members’ access to useful information. Committee Member Gary Stewart has the new “official” CSPOA Web Site up and running (www.carolinashorespoa.org). Lynn Darby has created all the great flyers you see around the community advertising our important activities. Donna Watkins has completed an update of the Newcomers Booklet given to new residents. Diana Mardall does yeoman service producing our monthly Bulletin and is always looking for ways to improve it.

With Joe Martere at the helm (and Board Member Mike Mundy as the only other member of his team so far), the Facilities Maintenance Committee has been very busy. Joe is examining ways to save money on operating the pool (such as covering the pool in the winter to reduce electricity costs), while Mike is putting the pool in shape with repairs and some new furniture. We are having the picnic tables repaired and refinished, and will continue efforts to make the picnic area a very enjoyable space for our residents. Joe and Mike would like some more volunteers for this committee – you don’t have to DO the work – you just have to oversee it and advise the Board on what needs to be done.

The Finance and Audit Committee (Maslin Kain, Chair) is working hand-in-hand with Treasurer Bill Harniman to ensure that our finances and business operations are maximally effective. Together they have just completed working with our auditors on the 2005 Audit (a success!) and are implementing the recommendations of the auditors. The committee also is doing a comprehensive review of the POA’s insurance coverage and will work with the Board to obtain a professional assessment of the long-term costs of maintaining of capital property and equipment.

The Architectural Control Committee has lost several members due to other commitments, and is down to a “Few Good Men and a Woman,” all working very hard to maintain the quality of our community. They recently met with the Town of Carolina Shores to negotiate the overlaps of our tree policies (more on that later in this issue), and have successfully enforced our vehicle parking and lot maintenance requirements against some violators. We appreciate the hard work they do daily. THEY NEED NEW VOLUNTEERS!

Finally, Board Member Nancy Harthausen has assembled our Nominating Committee and they are seeking candidates for our 2007 Board elections. Please read their article below and give serious consideration to running. We are expanding the Board to reduce the workload, so now is the time to give it a try!
I hope you are all having a great summer and will think about becoming a CSPOA volunteer in the fall.
Joyce Dunn - CSPOA President

Election of POA Directors for 2007

It is time again to prepare for the election of officers for the POA Board of Directors. We currently have five seats actively filled on our Board of Directors. Two new seats were added and the election of those offices was deferred to this election in February, 2007. Therefore, we must fill five (5) seats on our POA Board of Directors in this election in February, 2007. A motion was passed to elect four (4) officers for two year terms and one (1) officer for a one year term. This will provide for some continuity in the 2008 election where four officers will continue in office for another year and we will have to elect three (3) new officers.

The nominating committee is searching for candidates to run for the five seats on the POA Board of Directors that will become vacant in 2007. We ask that you please volunteer some of your valuable time and consider running for office. You might not think so, but every member has something to contribute to the voluntary management of our Association. We need and welcome your service. If you are interested in running for a seat on the POA Board of Directors, please send a brief biography of your experience, skills and valuable knowledge to me via Email at mrbud@carolinashores.net or drop one off at the POA Office. If you have any questions, please call me at 575-2923. The nominations will be open until October 15, 2006. This will give you enough time to decide to help your community. We really need you.

Nancy Harthausen
Nominating Committee Chair

ACC CORNER


Last month, I made an urgent request to the community for Volunteers to join the ACC and also for a new ACC Chairman. I am happy to report that two volunteers have joined the ACC, and I would like to welcome Pat Behan and Bob Jones to the committee. Additional volunteers would be more than welcome, so if you are interested, please contact the POA!!! We are still looking for a Chairman of the ACC, and if you would be interested in assuming that position, please contact the POA office at 579-2044, or call me directly at 575-1145. I also mentioned last month that due to the departure of the ACC Chairman, publication of various updated Guidelines and Procedures would be delayed. Unfortunately, that occurrence, along with a back injury I sustained two weeks ago has added to that delay. I hope to be able to complete the documents in the next few weeks, and have them available on the web site and at the POA Office soon thereafter. I appreciate your under-standing concerning the delay of this information. Thanks!!!

Monty Craig

CSPOA MEMBER DIRECTORY


The CSPOA Member Directory will be published in September – this time in a fancy, spiral bound version and at no cost to the POA. The Board is contracting with Athens Publishing (who do directories for Sea Trail and Brunswick Plantation) to publish the directory in return for allowing advertising in the back of the directory. Please review your personal information in the current directory and notify the POA office at once (cspoa@carolinashores.net) in writing of any changes or additions to your information. If you want to include your email address and have not already submitted it, please do so now. The deadline for member changes and additions is August 10. Also – if you own a business or know someone who does, please ask them to consider advertising in our directory. For more information, advertisers can call Leslie Martin at 579-0848, extension 2.

AN IMPORTANT CHANGE IN THE TREE REMOVAL POLICY

Effective immediately, the Town of Carolina Shores will assume 100% responsibility for oversight of removal of trees within the town boundaries. Anyone who wishes to remove a tree must obtain a permit from the Town of Carolina Shores and pay a permit fee (which will be reviewed and possibly reduced at the town’s August meeting). Any reports about trees removed illegally should be filed with the Town of Carolina Shores. The CSPOA will not be involved in the process, except in cases of undeveloped lots in the community with trees that are a hazard or a problem for adjacent neighbors.

WHERE DID OUR COOLERS GO?

Sometime after the POA Memorial Day picnic and before the July 4 picnic somebody in our community borrowed the POA picnic coolers without asking to or advising the POA office. Consequently, when the Board began organizing the July 4 picnic and went to the storage area, no coolers were found and Board Member Nancy Harthausen set about buying new coolers. Then, on picnic day, lo and behold the old coolers miraculously reappeared and Nancy got to make a return trip to the store to take back the new ones she had purchased. Nancy is a very kind and gentle person, so she did not use the expletives many of us would have selected – but she still did get mightily inconvenienced. The moral to this story is, PLEASE DO NOT BORROW POA PROPERTY WITHOUT ASKING.

CSPOA Swimming Pool Update

So far, this is the busiest summer ever for our pool. As more families with young children or with grandchildren from toddlers to teens join our community, it is important that we all share in the responsibility of keeping the pool clean, safe and orderly so that everyone can enjoy it. Parents and grandparents - please supervise your young ones so they can enjoy themselves without endangering themselves or others.
Guests must be accompanied by the card holding resident and can use the pool no more than three times a month (not applicable to houseguests who reside more than 50 Miles from Carolina Shores).
When you leave the pool, please place all trash (cans, cigarette butts, etc.) in the waste cans.
Please do not bring food, alcoholic drinks or glass containers inside the pool fenced area.

News About our “Original” Web site

The "unofficial" web site of this community, www.carolinashores.info, is alive and well despite my restricted computer use and multiple other issues.
The POA has launched a site making portions of the original web site unnecessary. When possible, I will write articles about residents, local news, area photos and charitable organizations. I will focus on the quilters because their web pages are visited by persons throughout the United States. I want to write about exceptional residents who will interest you. I will do my best to post photos of your events if you send them to me.
In particular, because it has been my life-long work, I will support your charitable events -- both announcing them and writing about them afterwards -- as well as posting notices about lost dogs. Please let me know as soon as you plan an event. This is a user-friendly web site. Your suggestions and assistance are important. Thanks for understanding. Jo O'Keefe - 910-579-0655

FOR THE TROOPS

The local VFW Post 10804, Ladies and Men’s Auxiliary have adopted a unit with 117 soldiers from North and South Carolina. They are now stationed in Iraq. We are preparing to ship our next delivery of goodies to them shortly.
Here’s how you can help….

• Call for a list of goodies to purchase then bring the items to the North Myrtle Beach post on 111 Hwy 57, Little River by August 12
• Help us raise almost $900 to purchase a 15 minute Operation Uplink Phone Card for each soldier ($7.50each)
• Provide a monetary gift to help us pay to ship the nearly 300 pounds of supplies

Please call Cheryl Zupan at 570-1091 for any additional information or if you need your care package items delivered.

 

AARP SENIOR DRIVER SAFETY PROGRAM

Mr. Vic Pizzolato with AARP will conduct an AARP Safe Driving for Seniors Course at the POA clubhouse on September 19th and 21st. The course consists of two 3 to 4 hour segments and will begin at 9:00 am each day. The purpose of the course is to teach seniors to drive defensively to help compensate for the naturally occurring decrease in vision, hearing and reflexes as we age.
Insurance companies are required by law to give a 5 to 10% discount to those who have completed this course in 37 states - unfortunately NC is not yet one but it will probably pass the legislature next year.
Some of our residents who have taken the course in the past have received discounts by asking their insurance companies.
Attendance will be limited to the first 35 people to sign up - sign up log will be available at the POA office - a $10 per person charge must be paid when signing up. Fee is for training materials only -course is free - Vic is an AARP volunteer.

BRUNSWICK LITERACY COUNCIL

Carolina Shores People Are Terrific! Even though Carolina Shores had only two teams entered in the Brunswick County Literacy Golf Tournament this year, we were well represented among the winning teams. The team of Marie Strickler, Marlene Cleary, Judy Nicoletti and Pat Abell TOOK HOME THE $200 SECOND PLACE PRIZE for women! And the team of Bev and Joe Farmarco, Phil Thomas and Bob Jones WON THE SAME PRIZE IN THE MIXED TEAM GROUP!).
The “worker bees” at the tournament, as they have been from the very first golf tournament fund raiser BCLC ran 16 years ago, were almost all from Carolina Shores. Evie Hart chaired the committee of Carolina Shores ladies who baked the homemade cookies that were part of every player’s lunch. Donna Watkins, Kay Craig, Marge Dale, Cynthia Swanson, Jane Jordan, Kathy Harniman, Diana Mardall and Sally Nolan supervised the hole-in-one and closest to the pin contests on the par 3s (where Donna and Kay had the excitement of witnessing a player actually sink that hole-in-one and win $10,000!). Bob and Ruth Anthony were our refreshment people zipping around the course refilling and re-icing the coolers full of water and soda and helping with the clean-up. Jane Mahnke was a huge help working with BCLC staff, organizing and packing the lunches for all our golfers. Special thanks to Ann Nice and Bill Altreuter who were there from the crack of dawn to help register players until the end when we did the final clean-up.
The Literacy Council is truly grateful to these people and our community for all the support it has always shown to the work we do.
Our next big thing (and it never ends with any charitable work), is our big Autumn Yard Sale. We are looking for items small and especially large for the sale, so if you have an old appliance, piece of furniture or knick knack that you are ready to say goodbye to, please call us and we’ll arrange for a quick pick-up. Call Teddy Altreuter at 579-1057 or the Literacy Council at 754-7323

It's time to make plans for the 2006-2007 season. Up for discussion will be: "Filling spots for officers and/or an alternative format?"
This club was started by Joan Gilbert and Jane MacEntee several years ago to share recipes, taste samplings, learn tips and how-to's, and then grew into adventurous culinary outings. Our secretary is Dot Robertello; our chaplain is Jim Nay.

If your game is a little rusty please feel free to use the backboard behind court #3 to work on getting your swing back in shape. If you need someone to hit with, feel free to leave a note on the bulletin board or give me a call and I will try to match you up with someone. Tennis lessons for the children are going well and the "volunteers" are surviving quite nicely--the children never seem to run out of energy.

NEW FRIENDS

COOL GROUP MEETS ON HOT DAY
Over twenty ladies met on a hot and humid Tuesday at the cool POA meeting room for a gathering of New Friends. Dot Robertiello led the introductions of both old (years of residency, of course!) and several new friends to the community.

The first order of business concerned all folks of Carolina Shores. More volunteers, both ladies and men, are needed on the Architectural Control Committee. Step up and help out this group so that the uniqueness of our community may be maintained. Call Monty Craig for further information.

It was then suggested that the Recreation Committee look into a format used at many community pools: that 15 minutes of every hour be used for adult swim only. This could alleviate adult concerns about too many children in the pool at all times.

The Care Team efforts and its food freezer program received accolades from a former member of New Friends who felt that this project created a positive framework for the entire caring community. Keep homebound neighbors and friends in mind during these hot months. Encourage them to use the Care Team services.
On Saturday, August 19, an End of Summer/Back to School Potluck Dinner and Swim Party will be held at the pool. Tammy Humpreys, with the help of New Friends, Rosemary Connell and Mary Dilettuso, will coordinate this family event where there will be activities for the children as well as for us "older kids" with games and prizes for all.

Upcoming events:

o Tuesday, September 19: 11 A.M. Lunch at Greg Norman's at Barefoot Landing followed by a trip on the Jungle Princess to view the Intra coastal Waterway from the “other side” i.e. the water!
o Tuesday, October 17: Trip and tour of Sandy Island, and lunch at Huntington State Park. Call Grayce Farley (579-3995) for information and reservations.

The lunch bunch elected Mary Pritchard to lead the next meeting on the second Tuesday of the month, August 8 at 10 A.M. See you there!

CAROLINA SHORES SUNDAY SCRAMBLE GROUP

The Carolina Shores Sunday Scramble Group played Meadowlands on July 9. The course’s 7,054 yards did not intimate the golfers but the recently aerated greens surely did.
The format for the tournament was two low grosses per foursome. The team of Bill Southard, Floyd Schroppe, Bev Farmarco and Kay Craig came in first. Second place went to the team of Al Franklin, Dolores Sanborn, Dick Boyle and Elaine Southard. Third place was determined on a match of cards and was awarded to the team of Barbara Malina, Sharon Clark and Isle Bateman.
Dinner followed at the POA hosted by Diana Mardall, Phil Thomas and Carol and Will Groner. The hosts would like to thank Betty Goodwin, Martha Hannon, Arlene Leskowicz and Dolores Sanborn for their scrumptious salads and desserts.

We thank you all.
