Volume 27 Issue 4

April 2007



In the short time since the annual membership meeting and election, your CSPOA Board of Directors has regretfully accepted the resignations of several Board Members and Chairmen of our Standing Committees:

Board Members:
Monty Craig
Bill Harniman
Committee Chairpersons:
Stu Henderson - ACC
Maslin Kain - Audit and Finance Committee

Each of these individuals has contributed heavily of their time, experience, knowledge and level-headed common sense to the successful management of our affairs. We all owe them a vote of thanks and I know that all of us on the Board will sorely miss their efforts.

Although these resignations were brought about by varying reasons such as chronic health problems, family trauma, increasing time constraints and pressure, they point out once again the need for more of us to step forward and volunteer our time and talents to help in keeping Carolina Shores the best place to live on the Carolina Coast. We cannot expect the same group of dedicated volunteers to continue to do all of the work year after year. Get involved! We need you.
The Board asked Angela Kopitopoulos to serve the remainder of Monty Craig's term and she has graciously accepted. Angela will serve as Secretary of the Association. We will meet early in April to select a replacement for Bill Harniman.
The ACC has chosen John Doherty and Pete Gulliver to serve as co-chairmen. The Audit and Finance, Recreation and Facility Management Committees are all extremely short handed - if you can help please contact any Board member or give the office a call and one of us will contact you.

Now for some good news - the Annual Audit of our finances for Fiscal year 2006 has been completed. At the Board Meeting on March 19th, our new Treasurer, Mal MacRaild presented the results - we ended the year with $39,816 more in revenues than expenses. That excess has been transferred to our reserve for future maintenance and repairs and replacement of assets. We now have $232,463 in our reserve. A complete copy of the audit report is available at the POA office for review by any member in good standing.

At the March meeting of the Town Of Carolina Shores Board of Commissioners, Mayor Mann reconstituted the AD-Hoc Committee to Study the Future of the Carolina Shores Golf Course. The committee will be chaired by Commissioner Don Hart and I was appointed a member to replace John Farley. The Mayor stated that the Town is committed to doing anything in its power to insure that the course continues to operate as a golf course. I will keep you posted in future issues of this bulletin.
Mike Mundy, President


The ACC is made up of people who give their time freely to protect and preserve the character and quality of property of Carolina Shores. This is not a policing committee and we do not go out looking for violations of our By-Laws. The main purpose of this group is to see that construction in Carolina Shores meets the rules and regulations of this community. When a builder submits the plans for new construction we go over the plans checking the plot plan for set-backs, screening of HVAC units, height of the ridge of the house, color of siding, roof and trim to be sure they meet POA standards. A team goes to the site throughout construction to check the elevation, measure the setbacks, measure the ridge height, make sure the site is kept neat, trash is picked up and generally keep tabs on the construction. If you note something you think isn’t right call the office, leave a message with Vickie or Suellen and one of our team will follow up and address the issue.
This committee meets on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of every month at the POA office at 9:00 AM. We need more people to help with this very important aspect of living in a community like Carolina Shores.
Come try us out, you might like it.
Bradley Lewis, Acting Secretary


Start cleaning out your attic and garage – the Carolina Shores Community Yard Sale is coming back this spring, Saturday April 21, 8:00 a.m. ‘til 12:00 p.m. Rain date: April 28. To sign up for a table or offer to volunteer, call Josie Miller at 579-0785.


Mark your calendar now for Sunday Night, April 15 at 7pm at the POA when the Monthly POA MOVIE NIGHT will feature a mystery, a comedy, and a suspense theme all in a single picture: DEATHTRAP. "If you were a famed mystery playwright a devastating string of recent flops, what would you do for a can't miss thriller script? Pay for it? Pray for it? Kill for it? Get snared in “DEATHTRAP,” the fiendishly funny film version of Ira Lavin's Broadway hit. The show stars Michael Caine as the blocked writer; Dyan Cannon as his loving but naive wife; and Christopher Reeve as a former student who has written a play so flawless "even a gifted director couldn't ruin it". Packed with insidious hairpin twists, drop dead wit and delightful dread and suspense - you will stop laughing only long enough to gasp in surprise". Bring a comfy chair or cushion and whatever you want to drink. We’ll provide the popcorn and the show. See you there.


Brunswick County is having a Hazardous Waste Pickup Day on Saturday, April 21 from 9 am until 2pm at the

HELP!!!! The Carolina Shores picnic season starts next month and volunteers are needed. Last year's picnics were a huge success thanks to the tireless efforts of the picnic coordinator Nancy Harthausen and her merry band of volunteers. This year's coordinator is Connie Six and she too will need a cadre of willing volunteers to help continue the tradition of great picnics in Carolina Shores. In the past, it has been the work of the folks in our community, all pulling together, that made our three picnics per year so successful. So please volunteer now by calling Connie at 575.3362.
Additionally, John Russo has come up with a "Horse Race" that we all can participate in while at the picnics. The idea is to have six horses/ponies move around a segmented course, each horse advancing based on the throw of the dice. John is willing to head-up this activity with some volunteer help. John can be reached at
Bob Anthony 579.9666.


We've been given the opportunity to pick up another week of North Strand Mobile Meals !!! Two helpers are needed Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, April 18th, 19th, & 20th and then whole week of April 30th & May 1st thru 4th.
Schedule the same: meet the driver at Bi-lo parking lot at 8:45 AM - wear comfortable clothes and shoes and bring a drink if so desired. You should be back about noon.
Please call me if you can be of help.
Thanks ahead of time for all you do and have done in the past.

In March the Carolina Shores Needlework Club had a busy month. First we donated seven completed lap robes (knitted, crocheted, and quilted) to residents of the Autumn Care Nursing home. Our photo was in the Brunswick Beacon the week of March 17. Then, on March 12 we took a field trip to meet the needlework group at Hickmans Crossing Library. We had a great time getting acquainted and sharing our projects and our ideas. Then we all went out to lunch together. The Carolina Shores group has voted to join up with Hickmans Crossing again for our April 9 meeting. The Hickmans Crossing group begins gathering at 9am, and we are welcome to join them any time after that. If you are going for the first time and need someone to take you -- or if you just need a ride -- call Joyce Davis at 575-0825.

Each member had read a Biography or Autobiography of their choice and gave a summary of the book. Everyone was thrilled that we had decided to do this back last year when we prepared our list. This gave all of us some information about 12 different people and we only read one book.

There are no words to describe how much your kindness and support has meant to me over the last few months. The prayers, e-mails, cards, telephone calls, hugs, food, yard and pet care were so appreciated. You are all
Angels in my life. Please continue to keep me in your prayers as I undergo three more treatments in Houston.
Lynn Jerr

To all my friends in Carolina Shores:
My thanks to everyone who supported me during Allen's long illness and passing. The food, mass cards, phone calls, and cards were overwhelming.
Carolina Shores is the best place to live and my family agrees. They went back to Georgia knowing I'm in good hands. Thanks you'all.
Extra thanks to a very special friend of Allen's and mine. Bruce Bunt visited Allen 2-3 times a week from Sept. to Feb.
Jacqueline Storm

Thanks so much to the wonderful people in Carolina Shores for the meals, the visits and especially the encouragement I've received during my recent surgery, unexpectedly long hospital stay and recovery process at home. As many of you know, this was my 4th back surgery and it does not get easier with practice!! The support I've received was really needed and appreciated. I've read these thank-you letters in the Bulletin and have written a few myself, but am still amazed at the outpouring of cards, prayers, phone calls, offers of help and genuine concern from the people in this community.
Many of us left our children and natural families to move here. We now have a new family among the terrific people we know in Carolina Shores. Carl and I thank you for being you.
Pat Price

I feel so blessed! I am surrounded by the love of God and of friends. They worked together to make me well again and I do feel terrific. I'm so glad I never moved from Carolina Shores. I love it and all of you. Thanks to all for your help and support. I couldn't have done it alone. God Bless.

AAII Meeting

The April meeting of the AAII Investor Education Group will be held at 7:00 PM on Tues April 10 2007 at the CSPOA building. Topics to be presented and discussed are “Computer Assisted Investing” and “The Effect of Taxes on Investment Decisions”.
The group has no commercial affiliation and you do not have to be a member of AAII to attend. All CSPOA members interested in investing are invited to attend. Point of contact is Gordon Robinson at 579 – 4604.
Note: This organization not affiliated in any way with the Carolina Shores POA

Free Security: Put your car keys beside your bed at night. If you hear a noise outside your home or someone trying to get in your house, just press the panic button for your car. The alarm will be set off, and the horn will continue to sound until either you turn it off or the car battery dies. It works if you park in your driveway or garage. If your car alarm goes off when someone is trying to break in your house, odds are the burglar or rapist won't stick around.... after a few seconds all the neighbors will be looking out their windows to see who is out there and the criminal won't want that.
And, remember to carry your keys while walking to your car in a parking lot. The alarm can work the same way there.

COASTAL GARDEN CLUB……cordially invites you and your friends to join them on a bus trip to Raleigh for 11/2 to 2 hour tour of the Plants Delight Nursery on May 16, 2007.
