NEED SOME HELP?
YARD OF THE SEASON
Garden Club's Yard of the Season winner for the 2007 spring calendar
year is Cheryl Brush of 30 Carolina Shores Drive.
CRIME WATCH NEEDS YOU
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.
POOLSIDE LUAU PLANNED
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.

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).

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.

would make anyone’s mouth water. Grace made a great Tiramisu

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.
