MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT


By now, you should all have received the CSPOA Golf Course Survey, which was mailed to all members last week. For the past 30 years, deed restrictions in the original transfer documents have prohibited subdivision of the Golf Course property. Those restrictions expire at the end of next year -- after that the property could be developed for residential housing. The purpose of this survey is to make all of our members aware of that possibility and to solicit your input. By voting yes, you will be directing your POA board to conduct a thorough and professional investigation of the possible methods of acquiring the course property. Any recommendations developed as a result of that study would be subject to a vote of the entire membership before implementation. The Ad-hoc committee formed by Town of Carolina Shores has recommended that the Town should not pursue the possibility of purchasing the course. We urge all of you to return the survey as soon as possible and to include any comments or suggestions. We need to hear from you whether your response is for or against. By making your wishes known, you will help your Board to better serve you.
Mike Mundy, President


RECREATION COMMITTEE REPORT


The July 4th Picnic was a big success. Thanks to those who contributed to the “Sharing Table” sponsored by the New Friends. This will be a regular part of future picnics. Of course none of this would happen without all the people who lend their time and muscles setting things up and cleaning up at the end. We could use more help in these areas. The new grill you saw at the picnic was purchased by the POA and is available for members use at private picnics. It can be reserved at the POA office for a $50 deposit with $40 refunded if the grill is cleaned (there is a $10 fee for the gas). The new TV/movie projector at the POA is also available for resident use. We are working on getting a new outdoor sound system for use at the picnic area.

ARCHITECTURAL CONTROL COMMITTEE UPDATE


In the ACC column last month POA Vice President Al Franklin (who serves as the board liaison with the ACC) discussed changes in the fine structure that will affect chronic violators of the Declaration of Restrictions. It is possible that there may be some confusion concerning the roles that the ACC and the board play when addressing these situations. Here is the process: In response to a written complaint concerning a possible infraction of the Declaration of Restrictions an ACC member conducts a fact-finding investigation. The ACC then forwards its findings and recommendations, through the ACC liaison, to the POA Board for possible action. The Board, not the ACC, imposes all fines. At the ACC’s last meeting, in addition to approving several requests for alterations, repainting, reroofing etc., we approved construction applications for two new homes: 9 Myrtlewood and 3 Pinewood. A decision on another construction application for a new home was tabled pending the receipt of additional information.

Recently we have been receiving complaints about unlicensed cars parked in various places throughout our subdivision. Your Declaration of Restrictions states that “Any vehicle parked anywhere in Carolina Shores must be operational, registered and capable of being driven from its parking area.” This regulation does not cover vehicles in a garage or disabled vehicles awaiting repairs (which must be accomplished within 48 hours). Any vehicle not meeting these conditions may be towed by the Association at the Owner’s expense.

Due to health issues and other commitments the ACC has lost two members. If you can spare a few mornings a month and are interested in helping to maintain the wonderful ambiance that makes our community so special, give the ACC a call or stop in at the POA building.

POA LABOR DAY PICNIC MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 3
2 p.m. – 6 p.m.
(no rain date)


Plan now to attend the POA’s last picnic of the 2007 season. Open to all POA members in good standing and their houseguests. The picnic provides: free sodas, water, & ice cream (until we run out); free hotdogs and fixings (from 2-5 p.m.); a “Sharing Table” where you can contribute a dish to share and enjoy the contributions of others; Bingo; Horseshoes; Bocce Team Competition; “Carolina Shores Derby” Horse Races; and a cash raffle. Volunteers are urgently needed for setup and cleanup. Call Picnic Chair Nancy Harthausen to sign up, 575-2923.


BACK BY POPULAR REQUEST:
THE SECOND RUNNING OF THE “CAROLINA SHORES DERBY “


The populace at the 4th of July picnic had shown interest in the running of our Carolina Shores Derby. At the Labor Day Picnic, we will hold the race again at our track on the picnic grounds. The first race will go off promptly at 3pm and the second will commence one hour after the finish of the first. In order to accommodate all players, we ask you to make your choice ASAP before
the window closes for each race. Be ready to join in the fun. We’ll need volunteers, jockeys, collectors at the window, judges on the track, and a crowd to cheer on the riders. The horses from the Balbach Ranch have been well fed and are ready to go. All we need is a dry track and the stands full. Come and enjoy.
John M. Russo

CHILDREN’S TENNIS A BIG HIT


When you read this, the free tennis lessons provided by Carolina Shores tennis players for the children & grandchildren of Carolina Shores will have concluded. This year we had 19 participants, ages 6-14 years old. It is amazing how quickly the young folks can grasp and use new ideas and concepts. We had a great time; and one participant had perfect attendance for all 12 sessions. Thanks to Ruth Anthony & Martin Minder for donating their time and talent and who, along with the undersigned made up the "coaching staff". Also, thank you to Martin for donating the tennis balls and drinks that kept the students hydrated and motivated. I must say that we have some very talented young people living in Carolina Shores.

BOOK CLUB PLANS


The Book Discussion Group met at 9:30am Friday, July 20. There were 11 members present and we discussed Patricia Gaffney's "The Saving Graces". It was a wonderful story and many could relate to the characters involved in the novel. Gaffney's latest book is "Mad Dash" and was recommended by the group. The next meeting will be Friday, August 17. We discuss Mary Alice Monroe's "Beach House". Read the book and come and discuss what you liked about it or listen to the discussion of others. It is a great way to learn about different authors and the contents of various books that perhaps you do not choose or have time to read. In the September issue of the CSPOA Bulletin we will list the books the group has chosen to read for the next year. If you have any questions, call Ester Malmfeldt at 579-0638 or Virginia Fischer at 579-0658. Look forward to seeing you there.

DOUBLE YOUR CHANCES TO HELP THE HOMEBOUND!!!


Two volunteers are needed to help North Strand Mobile Meals each day of two different weeks-- Aug 20th -24th and again Sept 3rd -7th. You meet the Mobile Meals driver and van at 8:45AM at the NMB Bi-Lo parking. He knows the route. One volunteer sits in front and delivers the hot meal to each home; the other volunteer sits in back and packs the next basket. You're normally back to Bi-Lo by about noon. Volunteers should wear comfortable clothes & shoes and bring a drink. If you have kids or grandkids over 10, I can give them 5 hours of community service credit for their school or scouting requirements. Helping deliver meals to the homebound helps make you really appreciate what you have!!! Call me if you can help, 579-1884. Thanks ahead of time.
