Last month I told you about our Advisory Committee’s recommendations to establish a Rules and Regulations Committee and to make three changes to our Declaration of Restrictions (DOR).  At our September 12 meeting the board agreed to seek our attorney’s guidance concerning the proper way to proceed with these recommendations.  The three Advisory Committee recommendations for changes to the DOR are as follows:


1.      A change to section six, subsection 9.  This concerns the short-term overnight parking of vehicles other than cars and non-commercial trucks.  The language in the present DOR bans all overnight parking of all vehicles other than cars and non-commercial trucks.  Prior boards have responded to the community’s wants and needs through resolutions that permit limited overnight parking of boats, motor homes, travel trailers, etc.  The Advisory Committee is recommending rewriting the existing section six, subsection 9 in order to incorporate these resolutions.

2.      A change to section six, subsection 18.  This section of our DOR addresses signs and flags and in particular the display of signs.  Some provisions of current NC statutes have superseded this subsection.  Our attorney has advised us that we may have to make modifications in order to conform.

3.      A change to section six, subsection 22.  To remove confusion, simplify the permitting process, maintain conformity with other communities and the Town, the proposal is to change the minimum diameter of a tree that requires a POA permit for removal from 6” to 8”.  The committee has also recommended that language be included that stipulates that mortal damage to a tree should produce the same level of sanctions as a non-permitted removal of a tree.

Our Declaration of Restrictions (DOR) is available on our website.


An opportunity to volunteer is STILL available.  Our neighborhood needs a property owner AND an alternate to represent our community on the Town of Carolina Shores Homeowner Association Advisory Committee to the Board of Commissioners.  A viable way to remain aware of current problems and concerns of the community and to be able to contribute to discussions of possible ways to solve those problems would be to attend our monthly POA board meetings at 9:30 a.m. on the second Wednesday of the month.  The Town of Carolina Shores Advisory Committee is currently meeting on the last Wednesday of the month at 10:00 a.m.  Those who are interested should make their interest known to our POA business office.


On September 9 about 40 residents attended an Ice Cream Social hosted by our Nominating Committee.  A plaque was unveiled that lists the names of past Board members.  Thank you to Mary Pritchard for the plaque and to Barbara Jones and Flo Pflaster for organizing the social.  NOTE:  After the club house walls are repainted the plaque will be permanently mounted, but the Nominating Committee needs your help in the search for additional names to add to the plaque.  Applications to run for the POA Board of Directors are available at our Business Office and will be accepted until October 31.


Brent Horten has been exploring the possibility of installing an irrigation water line and meter at our pool in order to reduce our utility costs.  Water going through these meters does NOT have a sewage charge applied to it.  As those of us realize who pore over our water bills realize the cost of the water isn’t the big part of the bill.  The big part of the bill is the cost of the sewage, which is computed as a multiplier of the amount of water used.  At the pool much of the water we use is water that replaces water that has evaporated and has not been discharged into the sewage system.  To make a long story short, because some of the water we use at the pool goes into the sewage system and some doesn’t and there isn’t any way to separate one from the other, we can’t use an irrigation line to fill and replace water in the pool.


Periodically our Business Office receives inquiries about “pet etiquette”.  Section 6 subsection 4 of our DOR states “Any droppings or other damage upon any Lot, caused by said household pets, are the animal owner’s responsibility for cleanup or repair.  Dogs are to be kept on a leash when off the owner’s property.”  Please keep in mind that in most cases our front yards end well before the edge of the road.  In most situations the front swale, our mail boxes, etc. are not on our property, but are located on property included in the Right of Way for a Town of Carolina Shores Roadway.  You might want to contact the Town of Carolina Shores at 575-4877 to receive assistance.

POA Library Doris Pearce

Once again the library volunteers wish to thank all of you who have given usable donations during the past year and followed the guidelines in the bulletin for donating reading material to the library.  There are, however, many of you who still continue to bring books and other materials to the library that we do not have space for and cannot use.  We recently had a box of old magazines, obviously cleaned out of someone’s garage or storage area, left at the front door of the POA clubhouse.  This creates extra work for our volunteers who have enough to do keeping the library in the condition you have become accustomed to.  Lack of space necessitates the implementation of these guidelines.  Please consider your neighborhood volunteers when you select donations for our library.  If you follow the guidelines below you will help improve our library and make the volunteer’s job easier.


The following should not be donated to the POA library:

 All books with a copy write date 10 years old or older

Text books regardless of age

Magazines three months old (weeklies, 3 weeks old)

Puzzle books, crossword books, etc.

Romance novels with copy write date 5 years old or older

Travel and how to books 5 years old or older

VHS copies (not originals)

Coffee Table Books

And remember to bag puzzle pieces.


Those who don’t want to throw away the above can take them to the Calabash thrift shops or Hickman's Crossroads Library.  Thank you for your support and PLEASE, PLEASE consider the above when making donations!

Carolina Shores Happenings Marlene Stewart

Carolina Shores Quilting Guild Rose Mary Jones


Quilters Begin New Year and New Projects - Carolina Shores Quilters Guild met in the POA clubhouse on September 14 for a business meeting at 9:30 a.m. followed by a workshop on Piped Binding taught by Terri Wheelock.


Members voted to make small teddy bears for pediatric patients at the new Brunswick Novant Medical Center in addition to continuing quilt donations to Ronald McDonald House at Duke Hospital.  Sixty six quilts were delivered to the House in June and those who made the trip were treated to a tour of the new addition.


Barbara Hutton will teach the October and November workshops where members will make Mystery Quilts.  This is exciting because instructions call for cutting shapes and sewing pieces together before seeing a picture of the finished product. 


Quilters welcome guests and new members.  Simply show up at the clubhouse on the 2nd Friday of the month at 9:30 a.m.  No experience is necessary as members are willing to teach beginners.

Garden Club NewsDebbie O'Dell


We signed up 45 members at our first meeting of the new season held on Wednesday, September 12, and welcomed four new members: Greta Meyers, Linda Mullins, Pat O’Leary and Anita Warnkin.  We all thoroughly enjoyed our speaker, Jack Alexander of Plantation Gardens, on his presentation of “365 Days of Color.”  Jack talked about the many flowering plants and shrubs that grow in our area during the year that bring lots of color to our yards.


The program for our October meeting will be “Wine, Roses and Pearl” with photos of the 2012 garden tour and then a short video on “A Man Named Pearl.”  In 1980 Pearl Fryar created a fantastic topiary garden in Bishopville, SC.  Many of the plants in Pearl’s garden were rescued from the compost pile at local nurseries. Pearl’s garden is a living testament to one man’s firm belief in the results of positive thinking, hard work, perseverance, and his dedication to spreading a message of “love, peace and goodwill.”  Joanne Bendy is also organizing a trip to tour Pearl’s garden on November 2.  If you are interested, call Joanne at 575-0071.


Keep Saturday, November 17, available for our popular Soup and Bake Sale.  Chairpersons, Margie Pettersen and Barbara Errickson, will bring us more information at the October meeting.


Remember the Garden Club is for both men and women and we gladly welcome new members and you are always welcome to bring a guest.


Our next meeting will be Wednesday, October 10, at 1:00 p.m. at the POA clubhouse.




Book Discussion Group Pat McKay


At our September meeting we discussed “Factory Girls: From Village to City in a Changing China” by Lesley Chang.  When you see something that has "made in China" on it, did you ever wonder what life was like for the young adults who have left rural areas in China to work in these assembly-line factories?  Factory Girls chronicles the head-shaking and heretofore-unheard-of daily living practices as we go behind scenes witnessing how girls live in dormitory-like conditions and work extremely long hours.  Soon, they begin to wear the latest clothes, become part of the city culture, and distance themselves from their rural counterparts.  It was an enlightening and interesting book to read and discuss.

For our next meeting on October 19, 2012 we look forward to a discussion of two books:  "Franklin and Eleanor" by Hazel Rowley and “The Color of Water” by James McBride.


The book discussion group meets monthly in the POA library at 10:00 a.m. on the third Friday of each month and always welcomes newcomers.  Here is the list of books to be discussed over the next year.  There’s a little bit of something for everyone!


October - “Franklin and Eleanor” by Hazel Rowley OR “Color of Water” by James McBride

November - “Little Bee” by Chris Cleave OR “In the Garden of Beasts” by Eric Larsen

December - “Language of Flowers” by Vanessa Diffenbaugh

January - “Alice’s Piano” by Melissa Muller and Reinhold Peichocki

February - “Wives of Henry Oades”, by Johanna Moran OR “The Heretic’s Daughter” by Kathleen Kent

March - “Lots of Candles, Plenty of Cake” by Anna Quindlen OR “The Man in the Rockefeller Suit” by Mark Seal

April - Poetry sharing for National Poetry Month

May - “The Accident” by Linwood Barclay

June - “The Ocean Forest” by Troy Nooe OR “The Paris Wife” by Paula McLain

July - “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks” by Rebecca Skloot OR “A Good Hard Look” by Ann Napolitano

August - “The Cove” by Ron Rash OR “Hummingbird’s Daughter” by Luis Umberto Urrea


Of special note:  Our Book Discussion Group is sponsoring an author talk.  C. Hope Clark will make a presentation at our POA clubhouse on October 24, 2012 at 10:30 a.m.  C. Hope Clark is a freelance writing business expert and author of “Lowcountry Bribe”, the first of the Carolina Slade Mystery Series.  Hope lives on the bank of Lake Murray near Chapin, SC, where she pens mysteries and manages


“Lowcountry Bribe is a fast-paced, roller coaster ride of a mystery, full of intriguing characters and a heroine as feisty as she is vulnerable.” Kathryn Wall




New Friends Flo Pflaster


Barbara Jones led the September meeting.  We started the meeting with a moment of reflection to remember the events of September 11, 2001.  Then we went around the room, each one discussing our talents, hobbies and interests, which keep us all so very busy!
