NEW FRIENDS PLAN POOL PARTY
The New Friends Potluck Club will host a pool potluck party on Saturday, June 10, at 6:00 p.m. at the POA pool. Everyone is invited. You bring your bathing suit and a dish to share. The New Friends provide ice, soft drinks, and paper products. For more information, or to sign up, call Joyce Dunn Davis (575-0825, tozbeach@hotmail.com)

 

CLUBHOUSE CARPET SUFFERING
Recently, the clubhouse carpet has suffered major staining by party groups spilling food. Currently there are several very large and very ugly stains left by groups who didn’t see fit to clean up their spills. Several of these stains are unlikely to come up even with professional cleaning. If someone in your group spills food or drinks on the carpet PLEASE immediately clean it up. There are cans of carpet cleaner under the kitchen sink. Even a quick application of cold water can make a big difference.

 

POOL OPENING
The pool will be opening May 14, 2006. On May 13, 2006 the pool committee will be cleaning and setting out the tables and chairs. They could use any help that you can give. I know we all appreciate this group doing this job each year. Thank you for your time. Also, as we start a new season for the pool lets remember the guidelines that have been established so each person can enjoy the pool. Thanks for your cooperation.
Al Franklin

 

NEED A HOT MEAL?
The Carolina Shores Care Team members is putting wrapped and labeled casseroles (and other dinner items) in the freezer section of the refrigerator in the POA Clubhouse kitchen. These meals are for people who are suffering from an injury or health problem that makes it difficult to cook. The freezer will operate on an honor system, with no formal request required – if you are sick or injured please help yourself. Anyone who would like to contribute a dish is welcome to put it in the freezer. Just label it, saying what the dish is and whether it contains salt, sugar, or milk products.

 

PLANT SALE TO BENEFIT
BRUNSWICK COUNTY LITERACY

Several driveways and yards in Carolina Shores are abloom in hanging baskets of gorgeous flowers. They are being "mothered" until Thursday, Friday and Saturday, May 11, 12 and 13 when they will go on sale at the Hickman's Crossroads and Shallotte Libraries. This is part of the "Charlie's Flowers" effort that last year brought over $10,000 to various charities in Brunswick County. Charlie has volunteers all over the County who grow the plants from seed in their homes, other volunteers who re-plant them into the hanging baskets, still others who then take them to their homes to water and care for them until they are ready for sale. He uses only the best soils and growth materials and these plants thrive! The last step in the process for Charlie's Flowers is the volunteers who do the selling for Literacy Council, Hospice, Family Assistance Agency, Habitat For Humanity and several other agencies all within Brunswick County.
If you would like to help by volunteering a couple of hours on any of the 3 days at the Libraries, please call Teddy Altreuter at 579-1057. You can also stop by my house and a couple of my neighbors here on Sand Dollar Court to buy a couple of plants before the sale. If you like to watch the flowers mature yourself, these are already beautiful and you will see how even more beautiful they will become.

 

HAVE FUN, HELP OTHERS

There will be a separate Hole In One contest for a trip to Hawaii or $10,000. Through the generosity of ATMC, BB&T and Security Savings Bank, who are our sponsors, all proceeds will go toward the work of the Brunswick County Literacy Council. If you are reading this and you play golf, you should want to support this wonderful charity, which provides entirely free tutoring in reading to adults and children all over our County. To sign up, call Teddy Altreuter at 579-1057 or the Literacy Council at 754 READ (7323).

CAROLINA SHORES QUILTERS GUILD
The Carolina Shores quilters met at POA April 14, for their regular monthly meeting. We had 21 members and one guest present. After a business meeting we all enjoyed another wonderful show and tell.

Our next meeting will be held at the POA on May 12, when we will welcome our sister guild from Oak Island for lunch and a quilting challenge with the theme Floral Fantasy. Hope to see you there.

NEW FRIENDS
An Easter Parade of memories marched through the POA Clubhouse at the April 11 meeting of New Friends. Members recalled their favorite childhood Easter customs and celebrations: getting a new outfit from head to toe, wearing a heavy winter coat with a bright new straw hat, admiring a spun sugar panoramic Easter egg, hunting for colored eggs hidden all over Grandma's farm, biting off the ears of a chocolate bunny before breakfast, eating ham with the entire family, and expecting homemade Easter baskets. The most rancid recollection was that of an Easter egg found hidden in a chandelier many weeks after Easter. Of course, going to church topped off many celebrations.
The response to the Care Team was heart-warming. Carolina Shores’ neighbors and friends are truly caring people. Several people have already availed themselves of the services that the Care Team can provide. If you are willing to join the Team, call Joyce Davis (575-0825). If you have need of some help from the Team, call Mary Pritchard (579-4684) and she will quickly get you the service you may need. Also remember that if you are in need of items such as baby cribs for little visitors or crutches and other medical items, they are stored for use of our Carolina Shores residents. Call Belle Paulikas (575-0429) for information.

The group firmed up June 10 as the date for the New Friends Arts & Crafts Show and Pool Potluck Party. Kathryn Karnes chaired this upbeat springtime meeting; Marlene Stewart will chair the May 9 meeting. Please join with this group of old and new neighbors, friends and lunch bunchers.

COOKS CLUB
For all those who attended the Old Vienna Café for the last luncheon, they raved about the delightful experience. For many it was a return trip and for those that had a first time experience, you can be sure it won’t be the last. Whether it be a romantic dinner for two or a classic ladies luncheon, you simply cannot go wrong. Our end of the season luncheon will be a picnic theme. We have passed around a sign-up sheet for those interested in participating. Jim Nay will be navigator for this event. It will be held at the POA picnic area on May 2nd at 11:00 a.m. We will have a short meeting and discuss what we would like to see happen for the 06/07 season. We are open to new suggestions and ideas and of course, new membership. Plus new officers for the coming year. If anyone has any questions or would like to sign up for our picnic, please call Dot Robertiello, 579-1407.

 

GARDEN CLUB
Our guest speaker for the April meeting was Derek Smith of the North Carolina Department of Transportation's Roadside Environmental Unit. Mr. Smith, a native of Raleigh, has been with the Wildflower Program for sixteen years. During the energy crisis of the 1970's, in order to avoid mowing large areas along our highways, the department decided it would conserve energy if wildflowers were planted instead. Thus began the North Carolina Wildflower Program. The existing vegetation was cleared and the soil was prepared for planting the seeds. Now as we drive on our highways we see beautiful fields of Coreopsis, Day Lilies, California Poppies , Black-eyed Susan's, Gloriosa Daises and many other colorful flowers. The program is funded with revenue from personalized licenses and from the Federal Enhancement Program. Mr. Smith was an excellent speaker and enthusiast for this program. All the ladies present received a booklet on the program as well as a packet of wildflower seeds with instructions for planting. Hopefully we will see some of these beautiful wildflowers in Carolina Shores soon. Trinka Moore, our Flower Lady, told us about the Madonna Lily, which is a popular Easter flower. The flower is pure white symbolizing purity, hence its use at the time of the resurrection and its reference to the Virgin Mary.

The cutoff date for the May Luncheon and Fashion Show is May 3. Tickets were sold at the April meeting. If you need a ticket call Lynn Darby, Grace Farley, or Emily Sharp, coordinators of the luncheon. The luncheon is Wednesday, May 10 at Filet's with cocktails at 11:30 and lunch at 12:00 noon. Fashions will be from Island Breeze.
Kay Forbes announced for the Scholarship Committee that twelve had applied from which three were chosen. Thanks again to all those that worked and those who attended the luncheon and card party making these scholarships possible. President Kathy Harniman announced that the board will be revising the Garden Club By-Laws over the summer. She is looking for past officers to help with the job. Any past officers of the Garden Club who would be able to help please contact Kathy Harniman.

Also thanks to friends and neighbors for food, trips to the dump and overall thoughts and prayers. What a great community.

Thank you, Care Team.
On Monday April 10th I used our new Care Team. My regular lady had a doctors appointment and I can't be left alone. So I called Mary Pritchard about some help. She said sure, a lady named Flo will be there. She was here for two hours and it didn't cost me a cent.
