FROM THE PRESIDENT
Our POA Board consists of seven Directors elected by the membership to
manage the operation of the Association. The terms of three of the current
directors will expire at the end of this year so we will be electing three
Directors to fill two year terms in the upcoming election.
The nominating committee, chaired by Angela Kopitopoulos, is soliciting
candidates to run for this election to fill those three seats. We ask
that you volunteer some of your valuable time and consider serving as
a director. We all have something to contribute, and service on the board
will allow you to put your knowledge, skills and experience to work in
keeping Carolina Shores a great place to live.
Nominations will be open until October 31st. If you are interested in
being a nominee, please contact Angela or the POA office prior to that

ARCHITECTURAL CONTROL COMMITTEE (ACC) REPORT
The ACC has received a very unpleasant unsigned letter from a member of
our community. The writer of the letter also left a copy in the mailbox
of a new neighbor who – the writer believes – was violating
the CSPOA Deed of Restrictions. The ACC does not reply to unsigned complaints
and would like to remind the writer that leaving a copy in the new resident’s
mailbox was a violation of Federal Laws. It is clear to the ACC that the
writer was incorrect in assuming a violation of the DofR, and had not
taken the time to speak personally with the homeowner before writing the
letter. The ACC has personally apologized to the recipient for the unfriendly
behavior of one of our homeowners. Since we claim to be such a friendly
community, how can people act so rudely to others?
The ACC welcomes new members and are asking people to come work with us.
The larger our group, the more viewpoints we have and the more open our

an opportunity to tell a little about his or her background, experience
and reasons for seeking election, followed by a question and answer session.
Please plan to attend and learn more about the people who you will be
voting for in November. Mike Mundy
PEANUT GUESSING CONTEST

tennis courts. A big thank you to Barry Hetrick for helping the undersigned
in replacing the damaged tennis nets on courts 1 & 3. The new nets
have double netting in the top 12 inches, which means they should last
