MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT

At our April Planning session, the board voted to invite David Jones to serve the remainder of Bill Harniman's term. David has accepted our invitation and we are now operating with our full complement of seven board members. Please mark your calendars to attend our next board meeting at 7:00 PM on Monday, June 18th at the POA clubhouse.
The POA office will be closed on Wednesday, June 13th to allow for the replacement of the carpet in the office and hallway.
We all enjoy the benefits of living in a community with a strong POA and rules and regulations to protect our way of life, but occasionally we need a reminder of some of the restrictions. One source of numerous complaints recently has been failure of some members to obey the pet restrictions. Section 6, Paragraph 4 of our Declaration of Restrictions requires that pets be on a leash when off of their owner's property and that pet owners pick up after their pets. Please do your best to control and pick up after your pets.
By the time you read this, our annual POA Memorial Day picnic will have taken place. We hope all of you enjoyed the festivities and will mark your calendars to attend the next picnic on July 4th.
We will continue to hold movie nights on the third Sunday of each month throughout the summer - next one will be on June 17th at 8:00 PM.(later start time will continue through the summer months). Please call or email me (jammundy@atmc.net) with your votes for the films you would like to see.
Mike Mundy, President

ARCHITECTURAL CONTROL COMMITTEE

As we make our rounds checking building sites and complaints we have noted the number of people walking, more often than not these walkers are walking with the traffic. Did you know that walkers are required to walk facing traffic? This allows the walker to see what is coming and prevents motorist from hitting someone who walks out in front of them. We ask that everyone abide by this law and protect your health. It has also been brought to our attention that a number of walkers, who walk at dawn or after dark do not wear light colored clothing, use a flashlight or wear a red blinking safety device. Drivers can't see you!
Recently we have been receiving complaints about dogs running loose. There is a leash law and regardless of how well your dog obeys, you are required to have him/her on a leash. This also applies to cats, although difficult to enforce. Is your cat in the house? For those of us who love our birds a cat on the loose can kill up to one thousand birds a year. The eggs are hatching and the cats are stalking, please house you pets.
There were fewer building applications in the month of May, so we were a little less busy. We still receive a number of complaints. Think before you complain. Is it a town problem or the breaking of our Rules and Regulations. Should you call the Town or write the POA - ACC?
Bradley Burnett-Lewis

POOL NEWS

I would like to personally and publicly thank the volunteers who helped clean and place furniture at our pool - we would not have been able to open our pool on time without their help. Great job!
They are: Mike Mundy, Al Franklin, Mal MacRaild, Ruth Anthony, Joyce Dunn Davis, Ro Buzzel, Bill Kelsey, Jack and Jill Binseel, Connie Six and Mike Devereaux.

MOVIE NIGHT

The CSPOA monthly movie night was held on Sunday, May 20 at 7 p.m. at the clubhouse. This month’s feature film (on our extra large screen) was "Charlotte's Web" --which has received great reviews from both adults and kids all over the country. Peoples brought a beverage and a pillow or comfortable chair. The POA provided the movie and the popcorn.
"Charlotte's Web" was suggested by Doris Sandberg, responding to the article in last month's Bulletin asking for member votes. If you have a movie you are dying to see just call Mike Mundy and let him know.
If you need a ride to any of our monthly Movie Nights, call 575-0825.

HAVE FUN, HELP OTHERS

Play golf at the beautiful Carolina National Golf Course at Winding River Plantation and help the Brunswick County Literacy Council in its efforts to improve the reading skills of adults and children throughout our County. The date is Saturday, June 23.
The format is Captain’s Choice. Shotgun start is 8:30am. The cost to enter is $70 per player which covers carts, greens fees, beverages, snacks, lunch and golf prizes for all players. There will be prizes of $300, $200 and $100 awarded to the top 3 finishers in each of the following categories: Men, Women and Mixed Foursomes. There will be a separate Hole In One Contest for a trip to Hawaii or $10,000. ($10 entry fee).
Through the generosity of our tournament 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.
And, lest we forget, Carolina Shores golfers have participated and supported this event since it began, 17 years ago AND Carolina Shores golfers have been winners in this event almost every year!
To sign up, call the Literacy Council at 754 READ (7323).

NEED SOME HELP?


If someone in your household is facing a health crisis, the Carolina Shores Care team is here to help. We can provide a ride to the doctor’s office or grocery store, or someone to pick up a prescription, take your trash to the dump, walk your dog, or help with other things that you are temporarily unable to do for yourself. We also stock the Care Team Freezer in the POA clubhouse kitchen with donations of frozen meals that are available at no charge to anyone in the community who is unable to cook. If you need some help or you know of a neighbor who needs help stop by the POA and pick up some food or call the Care Team Coordinator, Mary Pritchard, at 579-4684.

CRIME WATCH NEEDS YOU

Thanks to all everyone who has signed up for Crime Watch patrol days during the summer. The schedule still has MANY blank days. We realize that lots of POA members take vacations and have company during the summer, but if we want Crime Watch to be a success it is important that lots of us try to fit in a patrol or two between visits and vacations. Complete instructions and signup sheets are available in the Board room (next to the kitchen) at the clubhouse or you can call Joyce Davis at 575-0825.


POTLUCK AT THE POOL JUNE 16

On Saturday evening, June 16, starting at 5 p.m., there will be a highly informal potluck supper gathering at the CSPOA pool. The New Friends will provide paper goods and ice. You bring a dish to share and whatever you want to drink. We’ll have supper and go for a swim. No reservations required – just be there at 5.

BRUNSWICK SENIORS

Brunswick Senior Resources, Inc., in collaboration with Calabash Presbyterian Church, will open a daily program site, (Mondays thru Fridays) from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. This program expansion may lead to the eventual establishment of a Senior Center to serve seniors in the extreme southern portion of Brunswick County.

GARDEN CLUB

We had a great outing in April to the Restless Wind Nursery owned by Kelli Scott. Kelli gave us a history and tour of the nursery and a discount on our purchases. We followed the nursery visit with a scrumptious lunch in St James Plantation at the Players Club.
Tamers at Ocean Ridge Plantation was the setting for the Garden Club’s May 9th luncheon/officer installation/fashion show. Restaurant manager, Tina Stanley, provided a tasty buffet. Kathy Harniman, outgoing president, welcomed the group. In recognition of their past service, carnations were presented to the past presidents in attendance. They were Jackie Buckley, Rita Kielty, Lynn Thompson, Marilyn Fisher, Dolores Sanborn, and Emily Sharp. Kathy Harniman received a pink rose and a gift certificate for her two years of service. Thank you, Kathy.
Teddy Altreuter introduced the scholarship winners from West Brunswick High School as well as their Guidance Counselor, Gloria Chidress. We wish bright futures for the three scholarship recipients Ashton Chappell, Jessica Poe, and Nicole Zottlemoyer.
Rita Kielty presided over the installation of the 2007-2008 officers. They are--President Lynn Darby; Vice President Jane Mahncke; Secretary Teddy Altreuter; and returning Treasurer Elaine Southard.
The fashions were from the Purple Dahlia owned by Pricilla Knight. Our own Teddy Altreuter, Kay Craig, Lynn Darby, Phyllis Hartley, Betty Johnston, Rose Mary Jones, Mary Ann Ketcham, Rosemary O'Connell, Sue O'Reilly, Emily Sharp, and model coordinator Grayce Farley modeled the wonderful fashions.
Thank you Lynn Darby, Kay Craig, Jill Binseel, Gloria Haddick, Kay Forbes, and Emily Sharp for making this luncheon such a wonderful event.
Thanks to all the participants for the continued support of your garden club.
Join us again on Wednesday, September 12th at 1pm at the POA for our first meeting of the new season. All are welcome!

Have a nice summer and see you in the fall.

TENNIS

The "Spring Fling" mixed tennis round robin, held on April 21, was a huge success. Sixteen folks participated in the tennis and over thirty people attended the pot luck brunch at court side afterwards. We look forward to doing this again in the fall.
Parents & grandparents of school age children, remember to call Tammy Humphreys at 575.7827 and register your kids for the summer tennis lessons. Lessons will be held every Thursday & Friday from 3:00-4:00pm for six consecutive weeks beginning Thursday, June 14th. Each participant should have their own racquet - younger children should have junior racquets - and water bottle with their name on them; don't forget the sunscreen. Tennis shoes would be preferred, however, any court shoe will do as long as they do not have black or dark soles that might leave marks on the court - no running shoes. Shirts and shorts are required, tennis balls will be provided. Courts 1 & 2 will be reserved for the tennis lessons every Thu & Fri from 3:00-4:00pm during this six week period.
Remember, open tennis every Monday, Wednesday & Friday at 9:00am. Everyone is invited.

NEW HORIZONS SINGLES GROUP

We had a wonderful turnout for our May meeting. Betty Hewett was our host and she introduced Johanna D. Wilson who writes a column for the "Sun News" called the "Back Roads". Johanna gave a very lively talk about her background and how she became a writer and how the column was created. She was very interesting and entertaining: We had several new guests.
Next month will be our picnic at the grounds by the pool. Betty O'Rourke is arranging for the fried chicken, which the club will provide. Everyone's to bring their own choice of food, snack or dessert to add to the picnic along with their BYOB. That’s Tues. June 19th at 5pm. In case of rain we will move back to the POA.
July & August there aren't any meetings at the POA. Some members meet at Sunset Beach on that 3rd Tues. of the month about 4pm., and bring their own refreshments.
Sept. 18th will be our next meeting at the POA. Enjoy a Good, Happy & Healthy Summer.

NEW FRIENDS ON THE MOVE

Realizing that many of the friends of the Carolina Shores community are going to entertain much company during the upcoming summer months, the first part of our monthly meeting dealt with the many places to go and the many things to do in our area. Besides the beach, other top attractions included the Ripley Aquarium, the Pelican's games, the Hurricane boat rides and dolphin watches, local show theaters, miniature golf, and the ferry ride out of Southport to Fischer Island. One nifty idea was to go to both the N.C. and S.C Visitor's Center, pick up brochures of events and tourist spots, and keep these handy to show guests so plans can be made when they visit.
The New Friends group continues to be on the go with several future trips:

*June 21 - "A Redneck Wedding" A dinner cruise on the Henrietta in Wilmington. Advance reservations required. $38 per person Call Gail Cohen (579-1880)
 
*August 6 - 11 A.M. cruise on the Sun Cruz Casino Boat out of Little River. Carpools will leave from the CSPOA clubhouse. No reservations required. Call Suzanne Kirksey (579-4172)
 
*Thursday, September 20 - Lunch at the Webster House in Mullins. Car pool from CSPOA.
 
* October 12 - House of Blues Mystery Dinner. Theater Reservations and advance payment required by August 25. $39.50 per person. Call Kath Sanders (579-9056)
 
*November 7-8 Overnight to Charleston More information later Call Grayce Farley (579-3995).






 

 

 

 

Be on the go with New Friends as they meet on Thursday evenings in the summer between 4 p.m. and
5 p.m. at Sunset Beach near the pier. Bring your own "happy hour" refreshments and enjoy the cool breezes.

To be on the go with New Friends, you don't have to be new to the community. Join us at our next meeting on the second Tuesday of the month, June 12 at 10 A.M. when Flo Pflaster will coordinate the meeting.

COOKS CLUB

We had a warm sunny day on the 1st of May for our annual end of the season picnic. There were about 22 there to enjoy the festivities. We had an unusual start to our picnic BBQ theme as we choose to have sliced turkey breast and spiral ham, without any grilling. Along with the rye bread there was an assortment of salads, baked beans, pickles, olives and a great variety of yummy home baked desserts.
We are going to have our next meeting on August 7th at the POA clubhouse at 11:30. We will be bringing along a bagged lunch and drink for ourselves along with some great ideas for the upcoming season. We will have September off and enjoy the POA's Labor Day picnic, then we will start our season in October. Our dues will remain the same at $5.00.
Remember ladies and gentlemen, the cost of joining Cook’s Club includes the joy of participating, forming friendships and memories, together with some really great cooking ideas and outings.
Our next coordinator, Trinka Moore will be taking over at the August meeting. She has some great ideas and experience. We wish Trinka a speedy mend over the May, June and July break.
Thanks to Lynn Darby for a great season and dedication. We look forward to seeing some new or old faces this year. It’s a great way to spend your free time.
See you in August,
Dot Robertiello 579-1407
