PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE:
 
Dear Neighbors,
During the past three months the Board of Directors has undergone much change – two new members elected, another two members resigned and replaced, a new President elected, and a set of Board Standing Committees put in place. It’s been overwhelming for us and – I expect – confusing for many of you to be watching. But I think the result is an outstanding team of leaders with a great commitment to the community and lots of vision and enthusiasm for moving us into a productive future. Here are some of the important things already happening this year:
New Board Members: Mike Mundy joined the Board in April and Nancy Harthausen joined in May. Both of them are introduced more fully elsewhere in this Bulletin. Both bring important skills to the Board – Nancy is knowledgeable about financial management and planning; Mike is very experienced in facilities management.
New Standing Committees: Our Finance and Audit Committee has already assembled preliminary data on what it will cost to maintain our physical plant (clubhouse, pool, tennis courts, etc.) over the next ten years. This information will allow us to do much more accurate financial planning to ensure that our property and our budget remain in sound condition. Currently they are working with Treasurer Bill Harniman on our annual audit. The Recreation Committee is already at work identifying ways to improve our social/recreational activities to better meet the needs of community members of all ages; along with that they will be reviewing and making recommendations about possible additions or improvements to our recreation facilities. The Communications Committee is bringing together the leaders of all our internal communication tools – the Bulletin, the web site, the newcomers’ handbook, and our community bulletin boards – to see how we can get information out to all our members even more effectively. The Facility Management Committee will provide recommendations to the Board on how to best maintain the capital properties we currently own.
Review of the Tree Removal Policy: Responding to resident concerns about their ability to remove healthy trees as part of landscaping projects, the Board is gathering information from local communities as well as arborists and other tree management experts. It is our desire to find the fairest possible balance between the need for healthy trees to protect our community from water runoff problems and the desire of owners to change the looks of their landscaping.
Update of ACC Procedures: ACC Chair Curt Orwig has spent many hours assembling and updating the procedures and forms used by ACC members in overseeing construction and responding to member requests and complaints. The Board will review and give final approval to these forms by early June and Curt will ensure that all ACC members are fully trained in using them. The goal is to ensure that all present and future ACC members have the information and forms they need to ensure consistent and effective oversight of our Declaration of Restrictions. The forms will be available for printing from the new POA Board website.
These are but a few of the many projects the Board is working on. We welcome and encourage member comments, ideas, and involvement and look forward to working with all of you.

ACC CORNER
 
As Board Liaison to the Architectural Control Committee (ACC), I would like to write a little each month concerning the activities of the ACC and provide information to all CSPOA Members which may be helpful in planning and execution of various projects you may wish to undertake.
Before going any further, I would like to acknowledge the excellent work the ACC accomplishes, and extend my thanks to ACC Chairman Curt Orwig, and the volunteers who diligently attempt to provide information, assistance, and at times approval/disapproval of certain requests received at the POA Office. It is important to know that the ACC is charged with the responsibility of assuring that the aesthetic values of our community are protected, and sometimes that means Members may not do certain prohibited alterations on their property. Fortunately, the vast majority of Members are familiar with our Declaration of Restrictions (DOR), and By-Laws, and maintain their properties in admirable fashion.
This month, I want to reiterate the need to obtain proper permits and ensuing approvals for alterations. The most common permit requirements would pertain to such things as House painting, Re-roofing, Fences (highly restricted), Tree Removal, Temporary Placement of a Trailer or RV, Room Additions, and any Building or Demolition work on a Member's property. There are other items which also require approval, and if you are not sure whether the work you wish to do may need a permit, feel free to contact the POA Office for assistance.
Please keep in mind that the ACC Volunteers are devoting their time and effort to help keep our community the beautiful place it has been for many years. The cooperation and support of all CSPOA Members will provide immeasurable help toward that aim. Thanks for taking the time to read this column, and over the coming months, I hope you will be pleased with the efforts of the CSPOA Board and ACC as we work to improve the clarity, consistency, and application of our deeded restrictions and requirements.
Monty Craig, VP, CSPOA

 
NEW BOARD MEMBER SELECTED
 
On Friday, May 12, Board member Al Franklin resigned from his position for personal reasons. The remaining four Board members met on Saturday, May 13 and unanimously selected Nancy Harthausen to fill the remainder of Al’s position (which concludes this year). For those who are not acquainted with Nancy or with Mike Mundy (our other new Board member), here is a short biography of each:
Nancy Harthausen and her husband George came to Carolina Shores in 2003 from Clinton, Maryland. Nancy had a long career as a payroll supervisor for the Potomac Electric Power Company and is well versed in financial management principals. She enjoys gardening, sewing, and fishing and, since coming to Carolina Shores, has become a passionate golfer as well.
Mike Mundy and his wife Judy moved permanently to Carolina Shores from Elgin, SC in 2003. Mike retired as manager of a large wholesale grocery distribution firm. He and Judy are both from Pennsylvania. A skilled bridge player, Mike is co-coordinator of the Wednesday night Duplicate Bridge group and this year he and Judy chaired the Carolina Shores Marathon Bridge competition. His other interests include reading, movies, gardening, and dabbling in antiques.

 
WELCOME TO OUR NEW OFFICE ASSISTANT
 
Be sure to stop by the POA office and get acquainted with our new Office Assistant, Suellen Bennett. Suellen became the other half of our office team in May and will be sharing the office responsibilities with Office Manager Vicki Samuels. Suellen and her husband John moved to Carolina Shores from Point Pleasant, New Jersey in 2004. Suellen worked for many years with Bank of America; her husband John was a landscaper and now works for the town of Carolina Shores. They are fans of mountain biking, camping, and kayaking.
 
POA BOARD ANNOUNCES WEB SITE
 
The CSPOA Board is delighted to announce the arrival of the OFFICIAL Carolina Shores POA Web Site: www.carolinashorespoa.org.This web site will be limited to business and administrative information about the activities of the POA. On the site you will find information about the Board of Directors, updates on the results of Board meetings, reports from Standing Committees, ACC forms and information, the Carolina Shores Declaration of Restrictions and By-Laws, a POA calendar of events, important announcements, and other information that the Board believes would be useful to members. If you have suggestions for additions to this web site please contact the POA office. This site is not intended to replace the delightful (and unofficial) community web site that has been operated by Jo O’Keefe (www.carolinashores.info) that is presently on hold while Jo takes some much needed R&R time.
 
DEALING WITH MEMBER COMPLAINTS
 
Is your neighbor doing something that drives you crazy and makes you want to pick up your phone and complain to the POA? If so, please take these steps:
First: Think carefully about whether your complaint is worth pursuing. If you are submitting multiple complaints to the POA each year, perhaps you are spending too much time worrying about what others are doing. Why not get involved with the POA in some more enjoyable way?
Second: Nicely ask your neighbor to fix the problem. Or offer to help fix the problem if you can (e.g., if your part-time neighbor’s driveway is getting filled with old newspapers dropped there without his knowledge, why not just pick them up and throw them away rather than complaining?)
Third: If your neighbor does not respond to your request, then consider whether the problem is critical enough to report to the POA. If so, then you must file a written complaint. In order to ensure fairness and accuracy in enforcement of our Declaration of Restrictions, we must require that all complaints about violations be submitted in writing, including the name and address of the complainant. Complaint forms are available in the office and can be faxed, mailed, or emailed to members. Emailed complaints will be accepted if they include the member’s name and address. If you have an emergency complaint please indicate so and we will dispatch an ACC member to your home to review the problem and have you complete the required form at the same time
Fourth: Wait to hear back from the ACC or the office staff about the outcome of your written complaint. You will be notified about the result. If you don’t hear anything within a reasonable time check with the POA office

 
CSPOA DIRECTORY BEING UPDATED
 
The 2006 edition of the Carolina Shores POA Telephone Directory will be printed and distributed in early September 2006 (to allow time for all the new residents arriving this summer to be included). If you are listed in the 2005 directory, please take a moment to review your entry and contact the POA office with any changes or corrections. All residents who have arrived in Carolina Shores since last summer and who have stopped by the POA office to check in and get newcomer information, should already be in our computer program. If you are new and have not visited the office – or cannot recall whether you submitted your data to the office – then please call or stop by and be sure you are in the program and will appear in the new directory
Third time lucky!! My apologies to Mr. McIntyre.

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 579-4403 or email at: Phyllimac@ATMC.net.
 
I NEED YOUR HELP!
 
As a member of the new Recreation Advisory board, I am looking for input from parents and guardians of children and teenagers in Carolina Shores. As the mother of four and a member of this community, I was asked to be on this board to represent the needs of families in our neighborhood. In order to do this, I need your thoughts about what you would like. For example, would you like a playground in our neighborhood? Would you’re child be interested in tennis, swimming, or golf lessons? Would you attend a family picnic with activities for the children? What interests do you or your children have that are not being addressed at this time? I am going to present your opinions to the Recreation Advisory Board, and we will be able to share your thoughts and concerns with the POA as well. Please contact me at home 575-7827 or via email adamandtam@yahoo.com. Thank you for your help!

NEW WEBMASTER NEEDED
 
One or more new webmasters are needed immediately for our Carolina Shores neighborhood website – www.carolinashores.info. The webmaster is unable to continue to run it due to personal problems. We now know what residents enjoy, i.e., what parts of the website are visited most frequently. The path has been carved for those who follow in our footsteps. If you can help or if you know of others who can, please contact Jo O'Keefe, at 579-0655, Thank you for understanding. We hope that you have enjoyed our Carolina Shores neighborhood website! It will be on the Internet at least until next January.
 
TENNIS
 
We had a great round robin tournament last month. There were 23 players and a lot of "interesting" tennis. The stormy weather held off just long enough so that we all could enjoy a quick brunch--a good time was had by all. Once again it proved that tennis players are also great cooks. Good news for tennis players and anyone using our recreation area - we now have a working fountain at the tennis courts. Certainly a welcome addition. Monday, Wednesday and Friday open tennis is going strong and, for now, begins at 8:30am.

NEEDLEWORK CLUB
 
The Carolina Shores Needlework Club has completed 13 handmade afghans (9 adult and 3 for babies) using yarn and knit/crochet squares donated by our neighbors and friends. On Monday, May 15 we presented all our afghans to Detectives Candi West and Donna Simpson of the Brunswick Sheriff's Department Special Crimes Unit. They will hand the afghans out to adults and children who are the victims of violence or personal tragedies. Club member Betty Bebber single-handedly produced 8 of the afghans using yarn donated by Bulletin editor Diana Mardall. Staci Matthews, Flo Pflaster, and Joyce Dunn produced their own and assembled others by mixing and matching knitted and crocheted squares donated by women from Carolina Shores and nearby churches and knitting clubs. Special thanks go to Doris Buis and Joan McNamara for contributing a big supply of the squares and to Olivia Lieb-Pezzuto for contributing an afghan she crocheted. The project will resume in the fall, with our afghans going to local nursing homes, so keep working on those 7" squares over the summer.

BOOK CLUB
 
The Carolina Shores Book Club met on April 21, 2006 in the POA conference room. There were 12 members present. We were delighted by a special poetry reading by Kitty McDonough. This has been an annual event with the book club for the past five years and Kitty said it has been a treat for her each year. Kitty talked about where she gets her inspiration for writing poetry and then she read to us for almost an hour. She read some of her poetry, some from Poetry Magazine and poetry of others who touch her. There were many different types of poetry, some funny, some tragic – all of it very moving. Thank you Kitty for sharing poetry with us.
After the meeting, we all went to Café Latte for lunch. It was a delightful day. Here’s to many more poetry meetings.
On May 19, 2006 we had the first joint meeting of the Hickman Library Book Club and the Carolina Shores Book Club. It was held at the Hickman Library conference room and was well attended by both groups. Approximately 30 people came to hear Wilmington author, Jack Fryar, speak on historical Wilmington and the Cape Fear region.
Mr. Fryar was born and raised in Wilmington. He’s a former Marine, and a retired Army officer, a lover of history and a natural story teller. He has written several interesting books that tell about the history of Wilmington, the Cape Fear River and the North Carolina Coast. He lectured for an hour about the role of those areas and the important significance they held in the outcome of both the Revolutionary and Civil Wars. His books appeal to everyone, including the native born southerner, the tourist, looking for historical background of this area, and the recent retirees who want to know more about the area they now call home.
We all enjoyed Mr. Fryar’s history lesson and were able to ask questions, purchase books and enjoy great food after the lecture.
Please join us for our next book club meeting which will be on June 16 at 9:30 a.m. in the POA library. We will be discussing two great books - “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time” by Mark Haddon and “The Kite Runner” by Khaled Hosseini.

NEW FRIENDS
 
With over 30 New Friends and guests assembled, the POA Clubhouse was abuzz with meetings and greetings. Marlene Stewart, the leader for the month joked that the group was "harder than getting my third graders together!" Many of the guests came to get further information about a new adventure for Carolina Shores - the first New Friends Arts and Crafts Festival featuring C. S. artists and crafters who will show and sell their wares. On Saturday, June 10, the festival begins at 9 A.M. and runs until 3 P.M. at the POA Clubhouse and is open to the public. So invite friends and guests to this new event here.
Following the festival, the New Friends will hold their bi-monthly Potluck Dinner and Dance at the pool area beginning at 6 P.M. Bring a dish to share - paperware, ice and sodas are provided. One dollar per head covers those costs. Come and enjoy a wonderful summer's day beginning with the Arts and Crafts Festival and ending with delectables and dancing under the stars.
"Thursdays at the Beach" has already begun. Join with other Carolina Shores neighbors and friends at Sunset Beach somewhere near the gazebo. Bring your own chairs, snacks or supper and drinks. This informal group gathers around 4 P.M. and after.
The Care Team is up, running and growing. Don't hesitate to call Mary Pritchard (579-4684) for any help as the team considers it a joy to help our neighbors in time of need. Also, a new freezer has been installed in the POA kitchen and is filling up with meals for people who need them in an emergency. Remember this: if your neighbor is sick, they cannot get to the POA, so it's up to you to check to see if you can pick up and take a meal to them. Meals are marked with the date made, contents and are free. Just a few more ways to share the spirit of neighborliness and friendship that is so evident at Carolina Shores.
An invitation was issued for folks, especially new New Friends at C. S., to become involved with town and POA community affairs. The next POA Board Meeting will be Monday, July 17 at 7 P.M. The Town of Carolina Shores holds a regular meeting on the first Tuesday of each month at the Town Hall. Starting June 13, the time of this meeting will change to 3 P.M. The Planning and Zoning board meets the fourth Monday of the month beginning at 3 P.M. Meetings are open to residents of the town. It's a great way to learn the workings of the community.
Finally, some entertainment ideas for newcomers were exchanged and then the group was off to lunch. Join New Friends at their monthly meeting on the second Tuesday, June 12 at 10 A.M. at the POA Clubhouse. All friends, old and new are welcome.

COOKS CLUB
 
Our May picnic was a huge success with about 30 people in attendance. With hot dogs and hamburgers, salads and sides of all kinds, everything was delicious. Thank you to Jim Nay and to all who brought the goodies and desserts. Bocce Ball was a big hit as well as just socializing.
We asked for volunteers for next year’s officers and Lynn Darby will be our president with Joan Gilbert as vice president, Joan Keating will continue to be the treasurer and Dot Robertiello will continue as secretary. We need someone to take over the Sunshine part of the club. We will be having a meeting in July to discuss what we would like to see for next years Cooks Club Activities. A few good ideas have been thrown around already, such as: a number of demonstrations, dinning around, whether it be in the afternoon or evening and changing our dues to $5.00. We are looking forward to a broader and exciting new season, beginning on August 2, 2006 with a brown-bag lunch at OUR NEW STARTING TIME of 11:30, at the POA. Your officers will supply the refreshments. Please come and join us as we discuss the upcoming 2006-2007 plans. Bring your lunch and your ideas. See you then.

NEW HORIZONS SINGLES
 
We went to Barefoot Landing on Wednesday, May 17th and took the boat ride on the Intracoastal Waterway. It was a beautiful sunny day and we saw some interesting sights, not least of which was some super large homes. After our boat ride we had a delicious lunch at T-Bonz.
On June 20th, we are having a picnic at our picnic grounds. Betty O’Rourke is getting the chicken for us. The rest of our members will bring salads and deserts to share. We’re getting together at 5:00 p.m. See you all there!

GARDEN CLUB
 
Carolina Shores Garden Club members ended the 2005-2006 year on May 10th with a luncheon/ officer installation/fashion show at Filet's Restaurant. Filet's has a beautiful setting for fine dining. Kevin Richard and his staff provided wonderful cuisine and service.
Our president, Kathy Harniman, welcomed the group. In recognition of their service, carnations were presented to past presidents as well as our current president. Past presidents in attendance were Emily Sharp, Marilyn Fisher, Trinka Moore, and Dolores Sanborn.
Lettie Gore and Jessica Dean two of our three North Brunswick High School scholarship recipients were introduced by Garen Waters. Not able to attend was recipient Jonathan Reeves. We wish them bright studies and the best of futures.
Our blessing was a beautiful and touching poem written by Lynn Darby.
Betty Johnston installed the officers for 2006-2007. They are -- President - Kathy Harniman; Vice President - Eva Jensen; Vice President of Beautification - Emily Sharp; Treasurer - Elaine Southard. Not in attendance -- Secretary - Pat McKay.
The fashion show was presented by Island Breeze. The lovely fashions and accessories were modeled by our own Katie Bissett, Grayce Farley, Joan Gilbert, Phyllis Hartley, Jane Jordan, Pat Kennedy, Sue O'Reilly, and Solveig Snyder. Ladies, you all looked lovely!
Special thanks to luncheon co-chairs Emily Sharp, Grayce Farley, and Lynn Darby for their work and effort to make the luncheon such a wonderful event.
In her closing remarks Kathy Harniman thanked all the members for their continued participation throughout the past year.
Take care and see you in September!
 
YARD OF THE SEASON
 
Carolina Shores Garden Club's Yard of the Season winners for the 2006 spring calendar year are Ed and Barb Gleed and their dog named Cheng Foo of 32 Sunfield Drive.
The front of the property is a lush landscaped planting of trees, colorful flowering shrubs and flowers. A large figure eight pond complete with waterfall and a wood footbridge accentuate the backyard layout off the patio area. They have just about everything within the borders and garden arrangements from coco palms along the lighted drive leading up to the Gleed's brick home to a hedge of Russian olive and clump of Leyland cypress along the property lines of their one acre tract. Ed "fusses" most with the blueberry patch he put in of about 35 high-bush varieties.
According to Ed, the key to a well-landscaped homesite is designing the beds in such a way that they accentuate the lawn area, deck(s) or patio space to provide a pleasing effect.
 
THE RENEGADES
 
The team of Polly Millosky, Chick Weingarten, Kay Craig and Dolores Sanborn shot a 118 to win the team tournament for May. The game format was Cha, Cha, Cha. Second place winners were Judy Maiorca, Betty Johnston, Pat Soule and Evie Hart with a score of 125.
The Renegades are looking forward to their annual “Ladies Away” tournament which will be held June 12, 13 and 14 at Pinehurst. Kathy Harniman and Lin Penta have worked hard to plan an exciting tournament. Many thanks to these ladies.
Kay Craig will be the chairperson for the month of June. Please check tee times carefully and remember to sign up early. Don’t forget to sign up for the “birdie pool”. So far three ladies have had birdies but were not signed up.

Several of the property owners know that I have resigned from the POA board. I want to thank each property owner who have supported and helped me during the last five years.
Thank You

This letter is a long time coming, but every time I recovered from one illness it seemed another befell me. All of my friends and acquaintances here in Carolina Shores who have been so generous with their time and prayers, cards and masses, made what could have been a difficult time tolerable. To those of you who cut my lawn, cleaned my driveway when needed, I will forever be indebted. The fruit, flowers, candy and wine certainly cheered me up as well. I don't know how I can ever repay all of you, since I was overwhelmed by your caring.
THANK YOU. Bob Sanders
 
THANKS TO THE CARE TEAM ANGELS
 
The Carolina Shores Care Team article in the May Bulletin brought forth two generous members of our community who offered to donate money to help buy a freezer to store Care Team Meals. Many thanks go to Sally Wallentine and Cheryl Brush, who were the generous donors. Their contribution made it possible for the Care Team to buy the new freezer you will find in the POA Clubhouse kitchen. We are beginning to stock it with meals contributed by CS residents. If you or a neighbor find yourselves injured or ill and unable to cook, please help yourselves to the items in the freezer. Each item is labeled. Contributions of meals are welcomed from anyone in CS – the next time you find yourself making a tasty meal, why not make a little extra and package it for the Care Team Freezer??
