May 2007




Spring is here, and summer won't be far behind. It's time for picnics, pool parties, family visits and all the other fun activities that make Carolina Shores such a great place. The Recreation Committee and Facilities Committee are busy preparing for the Pool opening (Mothers Day) and the Memorial Day Picnic - more information and an appeal for help with both are included in this bulletin.
Spring is also the time for neighborhood parties or yard sales. The POA has about a dozen older card tables and folding tables that we use for the community picnics stored in the recreation shed near the tennis courts. Any POA member is welcome to borrow these for a party or yard sale - just pick up a key from the office and let Vickie or SueEllen know what you are borrowing.
The new signs at the Fairway Villas and the Golf Course entrance are finally in place. The Town of Carolina Shores is budgeting to replace the street signs on the Courts (Northwest Drive) sometime after July 1st.
We will continue to hold Movie nights on the third Sunday of each Month - next one will be on May 20th at 7:00 PM. Please call or e-mail me at jammundy@atmc by May 14th with your vote for the film you would like to see. You may vote for up to 3 of your favorites - we will show whatever film gets the most votes.
Mike Mundy, President


In the month of April our teams inspected, several times a week, 19 Home and Building Sites. As you can see there is a lot of building going on in Carolina Shores.
If your calendar shows several days a week marked RETIRED, you don’t have enough to do. Join us, we are a lively group. Currently we have 11 active members, we need more. Next meeting May 2, 9:00 AM, POA Clubhouse.
Your ACC Members - Patrick Behan, John Doherty, Bob Duck, Pete Gulliver, Bob Jones, Bill Kelsey, Bruce Kibblehouse, Bradley Lewis, Jim Nay, Lester Soule and Lee Paulikas

A.C.C. Q & A

Frequently the ACC receives questions from our residents. These questions span the spectrum of the building trades or are related to our Declaration of Restrictions. Because many of these questions and their answers may be of interest to all of you, as time and space permits I’ll share some of them with you.

Dear Pete,
Recently my dog and I were walking past a new home construction site. I overheard one of the workmen say to another “This place would be better if it had a lot more big studs in it”.
I was shocked and appalled. We’ve always thought of Carolina Shores as a refined community. This kind of language shouldn’t be permitted.
Concerned on Calabash Drive

Dear Concerned,
You have every right to be shocked and appalled. This kind of language should only be used at a sorority house or a bachelorette party!
By the way, I shared your letter with ACC members Bob and Jim and asked them what they thought about this unfortunate incident. They said that studs are the vertical pieces of lumber (usually 2” X 4”) that are inside the walls.
Off the record, I think they’re covering for the construction workers!
Bradley Lewis, Acting Secretary


May 20 at 7:00 p.m. in the POA.

Carolina Shores Garden Club's Yard of the Season winner for the 2007 spring calendar year is Cheryl Brush of 30 Carolina Shores Drive.
Cheryl’s home is an appealing wooded corner lot overlooking the golf course. Spring is a lovely time for this yard featuring an abundance of Azaleas and four Dogwood trees. The Azaleas, Formosa, across the back pond were planted by former golf course owner, Jim Stoffel, but unfortunately many were lost during Hurricane Floyd when the golf course pond overflowed. The remaining Azaleas as well as Daylilies and Gardenias were planted by Cheryl and her late husband over the years beginning in 1978 when they built their home. The George Tabors around the sunroom and front corner are a favorite. The well maintained home and yard with it's plethora of azaleas is both beautiful and soothing.


Thanks to all of the Crime Watch individual volunteers and team captains who have given their time to our program since we started it going again in February. You are doing a great job! Now the Carolina Shores Crime Watch program urgently needs individuals to sign up to drive one or more days during May, June, July, and August. Our goal is to have two volunteer drivers for each day of the year -- one patrols the Carolina Shores Parkway/Acreage section of the community and the other patrols the Carolina Shores Drive/Gates/Northwest Drive section of the community. If everyone who is physically able volunteers for just one day the year will be covered and the workload will be easy. 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.


The Carolina Shores New Friends will host a POOLSIDE LUAU at the Carolina Shores pool from 5:00 - 9:00 p.m. on Saturday, August 18. The party will feature Carolina pork BBQ, slaw, potato salad, banana pudding, and soft drinks. Special music and entertainment will be provided (if you can hula or play a ukulele or you know someone who can, let us know). The cost per person will be $8.00 and tickets must be purchased in advance. Dust off your hula skirts and tropical shirts and watch the June issue of the Bulletin for information on when and where to get your tickets. For more information call 575-0825 or send an email

The Carolina Shores Needlework Club will hold its next meeting on Monday, May 14, at 10:00 a.m. at the Atlanta Bread Company in NMB (same traffic light as Wal-Mart). We will work on our personal projects for about two hours and then adjourn and have lunch together. We welcome new members of all skill levels and interests. The Club’s community service project for this year has been making lap robes to donate to residents of the Autumn Care nursing home in Shallotte. So far our members have produced over 20 lap robes -- some made from scratch using leftover yarn donated by neighbors and friends and some made by assembling 8” knitted and crocheted squares donated by our neighbors. If you would like to participate, please check out the “Needlework Club” container in the POA clubhouse storage room and help yourself to some donated yarn. Turn it into 8” squares or completed lap robes and return them to the same box with your name on them (so we can properly thank you). For more information or a ride to our next meeting, call Joyce Davis (575-0825).


The Carolina Shores Quilters met on April 13 at the POA Building for their monthly meeting. We had 22 members and one guest present.
After our business meeting we had Tips by Morrie, who presented a short program on making labels for our quilts. Thank you, Morrie.
Next we all enjoyed a very talented show and tell. We had a lot of hand made (Vera Bradley) purses to show off - Nice job ladies! - among other beautiful projects and quilts.
After our meeting adjourned we had a workshop presented by Solvieg Snyder pounding flowers. It was quite loud but fun. We learned another form of art plus vented all our frustrations!
Our next meeting will be at 9:30 at the POA Building on May 11. After our business meeting, Show and Tell and Tips by Morrie, we will have a workshop presented by Lucy Timmerman, “Making a quilt as you go table runner”. Everyone is welcome to join us.

We were greeted at our April meeting (“Come As You Are”) with orange juice and aromas of warm cinnamon rolls, by our hostesses Nancy Bates, Ann Soring and Ann Walsh. After socializing and snacking, Nancy asked us to sit in a circle while she read us a story and we passed brown paper bags back and forth. In the end we all had a surprise! We proceeded to tell various stories from some fun experiences which created much laughter. A good time was had by all. We also had two guests in attendance.
I talked about next year’s six shows in Conway. All interested in going, please bring a check to our May meeting. If you were part of the group last year and do not expect to attend this coming season, please contact me so I can take your name off the list.

The Carolina Shores New Friends is a group of community members who start as new friends and quickly become old friends. We meet the second Tuesday of each month at 10 a.m. at the clubhouse and spend 1-2 hours learning about each other, sharing information about the local community, and planning projects and activities that will benefit our community. At the conclusion of each meeting we all go out to lunch together. This year the New Friends established a Travel Committee, whose members have already led two trips (a luncheon at the Horry-Georgetown Technical College Culinary School and a bus trip to the Azalea Festival in Wilmington). Future trips include:
June 21 -- “A Redneck Wedding” dinner cruise on the Henrietta (paddle wheeler) in Wilmington. Advance reservations required. $38 per person. Carpools available.
Coordinator is Gail Cohen (579-1880)
August 6 -- 11 a.m. cruise on the Sun Cruz Casino Boat, Little River. Carpools will leave from the CSPOA clubhouse. No reservations required. Coordinator is Suzanne Kirksey (579-4172).
October 12 -- House of Blues Mystery Dinner Theater (Myrtle Beach). Reservations and advance payment required by August 25. $39.50 per person. Coordinator is Kathy Sanders (579-9056).
Remember, you don’t have to be new to Carolina Shores to be a New Friend -- Our May meeting will be Tuesday, May 8, at 10 a.m. at the clubhouse.


We all met for an Italian festival feast on Tuesday April 2 at 11:30. Joan Gilbert headed the program of events with a pasta fagioli soup that was put together by Halla and Grayce...Wonderful, no doubt about it. Dot brought her version of a Tuscan Italian Onion Soup with cheese topped Italian bread. Sue O’Reilly made a great Macaroni, tuna and sun dried tomato combo. Fabulous!! Joan also prepared a great Antipasto that would make anyone’s mouth water. Grace made a great Tiramisu dessert, with caution of one piece, as she really knew how to enhance it with plenty of coffee liqueur. Lastly, Sue also graced us with an Amaretto Bread pudding served warm and to die for. Everyone was very pleased with everything.
There were twelve of us who showed up for this wonderful experience, although nineteen or twenty signed up for this event. It’s disappointing to see people not show up after they have signed up. The planners cook by the number of people who sign up. So we ask that a phone call of regrets be applied as a courtesy to the hostess.
We are very pleased to announce that Trinka Moore has graciously accepted the honor of being Cook’s Club Coordinator for our upcoming season, she certainly has some great ideas not to mention experience. Dot Robertiello will assume the duties of Secretary and Sue O’Reilly will continue to be treasurer. Jim Nay has decided to continue to be our Chaplain. What would we do without this man, he is so gracious.
We talked about our May end of the season picnic. We decided to do it a little differently this year and forego the hot dogs and hamburgers as this is the beginning of the grill season. We have chosen to go with sliced turkey breast along with a nice spiral ham. Dot Robertiello will be in charge of those two items and we passed around a sign up sheet for the rest of the goodies. The sheet has only ten takers for side dishes or desserts. We would certainly like to have more of you show up for this end of season meeting and feast. If you are interested in coming to the picnic, please call Lynn Darby and let her know what you would like to bring and that would also include whether or not a guest will be coming with you.
We will have a short May meeting to decide about what month we want to start, August or September. We usually start in August, with a bagged lunch, and skip September due to Labor Day picnic gathering of our club Sunday before.
We have a great club that is open to both men and women, and we breathe life into it with such enthusiasm. Let us continue! Be ready to line up some super ideas when we meet in August or September. A planned luncheon at Umberto's Coquina Harbor will be a highlight of next season, and another month will feature a video about ways to cook Turkey leftovers. Any questions about the May Picnic, please call Dot 579-1407 or Lynn Darby 579-7526.
Look for more info in the next Bulletin.
