Volume 27 Issue 3

March 2007



After a hotly contested annual election on February 3rd, your newly expanded seven member member board of directors met in early February and chose the following:

  President: Mike Mundy
  Vice-President: Al Franklin
  Treasurer: Mal MacRaild
  Monty Craig - Chairman of the Nominating Committee
  Bill Harniman
  Sally Nolan - Board Liaison to the Facility Management Committee
  Connie Six - Board Liaison to the Recreation Committee


In addition, the board voted to invite Angela Kopitopoulos to serve as secretary to the board and Angela has graciously accepted that position.
One of the goals of the new board is to establish a much closer working relationship with the Town of Carolina Shores.
To aid in accomplishing that goal, both the Town and the CSPOA board have appointed members to serve as liaison between the two organizations. Don Hart will be the town’s liaison to the POA board and Mike Mundy will be our liaison to the town.
To help our standing committees continue the great work they did this past year, a board member has been assigned to be the liaison to each committee. In addition to those mentioned above, the following assignments have been made:

  ACC liaison: Al Franklin
  Audit & Finance Committee liaison: Mal MacRaild
  Communications Committee liaison: Mike Mundy

We will continue to hold bi-monthly membership meetings - the first one is scheduled for Monday, March 19th at 7:00 pm.
All of us on your new board greatly appreciate your confidence in voting for us to represent you. With your help, we will do our best to insure that Carolina Shores continues to offer the lifestyle that we all know and love.
Mike Mundy, President


We have heard many compliments since the new signs went up, but there have been several recurring questions.
Hopefully, the following information will help to answer those questions.

1. The lights on the sign at Thomasboro Road should be in place within the next two weeks.

2. The owner of the golf course has agreed to replace the sign on the golf course side of Country Club Road – artwork on the new sign was given to him on February 19th, and hopefully by the time you read this, we will have his approval.

3. Artwork on a new sign for Fairway Villas – Gate 1 has been given to the Villa’s board – with their approval, we hope to replace that sign early in March.

4. We are talking to the town of Carolina Shores about putting proper street signage on Northwest drive – Courts 1 through 12 to replace the old signs.

Once again Paws Place offers a Big Thank You to the residents of Carolina Shores for their thoughtfulness and generosity. They greatly appreciate the donations that were made by the residents. Each and every item is of such value and meaning to a non-profit organization. If anyone is interested in adoption, whether it be a dog or cat, Paws Place is the place to go. There are so many older good well behaved dogs that were just left behind who are in need of a loving home. Give it a try. We all thank you from the bottom of our hearts,

I want to thank everyone who donated cell phones for the Special Olympics. The Knights of Columbus collected over 700 phones throughout the area for a total of about $1900 which went to the Special Olympics. We are starting a new collection. Our goal is 1,000 phones. If you can help or know anyone who can, there will be a box at the POA Clubhouse for the phones, you can drop them off at 7 Pinewood Drive or call me at 579-7309 and I will pick them up.

Monday, Wednesday & Friday open tennis is going strong and attracting more players each week. Everyone gets to play and all levels of play are welcome. Play begins at 9:00am.
If there is enough interest, we are thinking about having a mixed doubles round robin tournament in mid-April. There would be a pot luck brunch immediately after the tennis right next to the courts. In case of bad weather the brunch will be held at the POA building. A date has not been confirmed, but the tournament will be after the Easter holiday. There will be a sign-up sheet posted in mid-March.
The tennis tournament is open to everyone and the brunch is for players, former players, non players and anyone else looking to party. Of course BYOB. So please sign-up for a "Spring Fling " tennis tournament. Bob Anthony 579.9666.

Of the twenty ladies present at the February meeting of New Friends, eight were new New Friends. Most of these newest residents left Connecticut and New Jersey before the snows set in! Does that tell us that our community is growing? Does that tell us that others are finding Carolina Shores to be a wonderful place for retirement, for visiting, for enjoying life? Kathy Sanders opened the meeting with a Valentine ice-breaker. Do you know who sent the first Valentine card? Ask a New Friend!
With so many new members present, some of the plans and programs of the organization were explained. The Potluck dinners held bi-monthly include an array of great food, followed by games and activities of all types.

February's High Tea Luncheon was dedicated to Lorna Golden. One of her decorated hats had a special table place, as we recalled the finesse of her fine High Tea years ago. She was with us this day in spirit. The table settings with fine china and patterned silver were very well matched to our Ladies in their hats and gloves.
Team members were: Dot Robertiello, with thanks to Halla, Grayce, Lynn, and Solanda for their specialty cookies. Our Trinka was the Teapot Lady who brought in her collection for us, along with some cookies.
Dot's Menu was home made savory soups; Vegetable Beef with Orzo, and Creamy Tomato sausage with basil; chicken salad with green grapes, three varieties of Quiche, and an Artichoke Puffs recipe of Grace Farley's, zucchini pie, salmon/cheese pastry cups, and mixed greens with raspberry vinaigrette. Many thanks to all those who stayed behind to help clean up and get it all in the car for Dot. Next Month, on Friday, March 2, we will meet at 10:50 AM at Christopher's Pizza Parking lot, to have an outing to Surfside Beach for "Lunch at Ryan's and a trip to Hudson's Flea Market."

Friends, Neighbors and Members:
Wrote my last thank you just 8 months ago and here I am again. Your support and encouragement all year long – in many different ways – gave us the strength and courage to get where we needed to go and do what we needed to do in 2006. 2007 brought us to an end that we didn’t see coming, but it did. So now I thank you, once again, for thinking of me during this very dark and sad time. Your kindness is a comfort to me and will give me the strength to only remember the good.
Jamie Hoskinson

To my brother Jack, my son Jim, friends and neighbors......
Thank you for the many kindnesses and the many "Get Well Cards" and "Prayers". I recently went for a stress test which told my cardiologist a catherization was necessary...having that, I was then told "Open Heart Surgery" was required. Four by-passes and one Aortic valve later along with four days at Grand Strand Hospital, I was released and went home to 45 Bayberry Circle where Gloria has been taking care of me. I am on the recovery road and feeling much better......once again thank you for everything before and after surgery
