The board has approved a procedure of accepting the donation of goods and services. This was done in some part because of well intentioned but unsolicited donations of used bedpans, wheelchairs, crutches, etc. We are just not equipped to store these devices and more importantly, to share in the liability associated with the distribution of non-sterile used medical equipment. In addition, the donations of services for community beautification projects etc. that require assistance from the board in the form of materials or funds also require pre approval.
PROCEDURE FOR ACCEPTING DONATIONS
The purpose of establishing a procedure for reviewing and approving all donations of goods and services prior to accepting them is to determine if the acceptance of a donation is in the best interests of the residents of our community before the donation becomes the property of the Association.
The following candidates were elected to fill the four vacancies on the CSPOA Board of Directors:
Al Franklin, Pete Gulliver, Brent Horten, Kerry Jarrell

Free Soil Tests –John Doherty & Pete Gulliver
Did you ever wonder why your neighbor’s shrubs have more flowers than yours? Did you ever wonder why the lawn across the street looks thicker and healthier that yours?
The answer may be simple. Perhaps
your neighbors had their soil tested and are now providing an optimized
growing environment for their lawns and shrubs.
You can do the same!
The procedure is almost painless:
1. Pick up an instruction sheet, a soil sample box and Soil Sample Information Sheet at the POA Business Office.
2. Follow the instructions and fill the soil sample box with your soil sample, complete the Soil Sample Information Sheet and return both to the POA Business Office.
ON TUESDAY MORNINGS we take your soil samples
and your Soil Sample Information
Sheet to the Cooperative Extension Office in
4. NC State tests your soil samples and mails or emails their recommendations for the proper amount of fertilizer, lime, etc. to you.
5. As NC certified Master Gardeners, we can help you turn an intimidating set of recommendations into “homeowner-speak”.

Book Discussion Group – Margie Pettersen
A discussion was held among the members present at our February 15, 2013 meeting about two historical fiction books, The Wives of Henry Oades by Johanna Moran and The Heretic's Daughter by Kathleen Kent. It was interesting to note that both books were based on trial transcripts of actual events. In the first novel, Henry Oades accepts a position in Australia in the late 1800s and faces tragedy when his wife and children are kidnapped and presumed dead. Afterwards he moves on to start a new life in California and remarries only to be charged with bigamy when his first wife reappears. Those who read it felt it was well written and were empathetic to the first wife who had a rough, hard existence from the kidnapping on through the rest of her life. Those who didn't read it had many questions about it since they just couldn't understand the bond between wives, the strength of both women, and how they could cohabitate under same roof. You’ll have to read it for yourselves and decide what you think about Henry’s dilemma, the choices made by the women, and how the situation was resolved.
The Heretic’s Daughter’s also involved the theme of family, with a focus on mother-daughter relationships. This insightful and eye-opening book was told from the perspective of the daughter of a woman accused of witchcraft in Salem, Massachusetts. The reviews of this book were mixed, but most thought it was harrowing, especially the reference to the degrading prison conditions. We gained deeper insight into events and conditions of late 1800s. Mass hysteria phenomena, like that of the screaming girls, was likened to life in Germany under Hitler. Positive changes did grow out of negative, as compensation was given, apologies made, conditions changed in time.
At our next meeting on March 15 we will discuss two nonfiction books, Lots of Candles, Plenty of Cake by Anna Quindlen OR The Man In the Rockefeller Suit by Mark Seal. In months where two titles have been selected for discussion, members may select one or the other to read; you do not have to read both books. 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. If you love to read and discuss books, this is the group for you!
