To those who missed our “Pizza and Trivial Pursuit Party by the Pool” on June 12, you missed a GREAT time!  Almost 160 residents attended and all of us had a wonderful time.  Thanks to Margie Pettersen most of us realized how many “trivial” facts we have forgotten.  Once again our Recreation Committee planned the perfect outing.


Our next “Party by the Pool” is on July 12 (WEATHER PERMITTING) and it is kid friendly.

***Any child unaccompanied by an adult will be sent home with a puppy and a pony***


The board asked Al Franklin to hire an ISA (International Society of Arboriculture) certified arborist in order to have an expert evaluate the trees around our recreation area and club house.  On June 14, 2013, five board members (Al Franklin, Bob Jones, Brent Horten, Mike Riccitelli and Pete Gulliver) met with the arborist to review his recommendations.  The arborist has recommended the removal of approximately 15 trees.  In addition, there are several other trees that may have to be removed because their roots are damaging the pavement in the parking lots.  He also recommended significant pruning of several trees in both areas.


Joanne Bendy from the Beautification Committee has provided Al Franklin with the names of two landscape designers who may be interested in preparing concept drawings for landscape improvements around our club house and the “Town Wall”.   We may be able to look at the visions of both landscape designers and combine elements from each.

Penalties for Declaration of Restriction Violations Board of Directors


Below is the wording for the new fine schedule:


As a result of the Board’s final determination that a violation exists at the above referenced property, coupled with your failure to correct the violation, the Association has assessed a fine against you.  The fine is due and payable immediately.  An additional fine will be imposed for each day the violation continues.  If the violation is not corrected and the fines paid in full, the Association will file a claim of lien against you for the assessed fines.  Pursuant to the Declaration of Restrictions, upon the thirtieth (30th) day after recording the lien, the Association will be entitled to initiate judicial foreclosure proceedings against you if the fines have not been fully paid.  Please be advised that if the Association files a claim of lien against your property and the lien is not paid, the Association may also proceed with a foreclosure against your property in like manner as a mortgage under North Carolina Law.   


1.      A violation of Section 6, subsection 22 of the General Prohibitions and Requirements of the Declaration of Restrictions: “No tree over six (6) inches in diameter shall be removed from any Lot without the prior written consent of the Association.  Damage to a tree that causes its demise shall be treated and fined the same as removing a tree without the consent of the Association.”  A violation of Section 6, subsection 22 shall incur a fine of $250.00 per tree.  Subsequent violations of Section 6, subsection 22 will incur a fine of $500.00 per tree.


With the exception of subsection 22, all other violations of Section 6 will be treated as follows:


2.      All first violations of a subsection of Section 6 of the DOR shall incur a fine of $50.00 per day or incident. 

3.      All second violations of the same subsection of Section 6 of the DOR shall incur a fine of $100.00 per day or incident. 

4.      All third and subsequent violations of the same subsection of Section 6 of the DOR shall incur a fine of $250.00 per day or per incident.


Property owners will be given 7 days from the postmark date of the letter announcing the board’s decision to correct the violation before any per diem fines accrue.  This is not a waiver of any initial fine.






Use of  the Clubhouse Board of Directors


Many groups enjoy the use of the clubhouse.   On too many occasions lately several groups have not been cleaning up after themselves.  If you bring food and drinks into the clubhouse, please clean up any spills and crumbs; also, please put your trash outside in the big trash barrels.




Southport Waterfront Market Catherine Sludds


The market is open every Wednesday morning from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. from May 1, 2013 through September 25, 2013.  It is held on the lawn of the Garrison House on Davis and Bay Streets overlooking the Cape Fear River, which is a treat in itself.


You can browse beautiful local produce, baked goods and handcrafted items spread under ancient live oak trees.  Enjoy fresh coffee and donuts while you wander around  admiring  the local crafts. 

There is a breeze off  the river as well as music in the air as live entertainment is always available.


Why not make a day trip of it and have lunch at a local seafood restaurant, take a guided "Safe Haven" Tour of Southport and enjoy a free visit to the Maritime Museum?

Carolina Shores Quilting Guild Rose Mary Jones


Twenty quilters met June 14, 2013 in the POA clubhouse.  Kathleen Ball introduced her guest, daughter Lauren Niger.  Officers for the coming year were installed by outgoing President, Paula Delahunty.  Officers will be:  President-Beverly Henderson, Treasurer-Inez Barrett, and Secretary-Becky Reams.  Vice President Elect-Halla Cramer was not present.


Nine charity quilts were shown and donated making a total of 60 quilts made by members this year; these will soon be delivered to Ronald McDonald House in Durham.  After the meeting the group traveled to Magnolia’s Restaurant at Sea Trail for the traditional end-of year lunch. 


Members were encouraged to come to the clubhouse on the second Friday of July and August to work together on projects of their own or to make teddy bears for the local hospital.  Bring lunches as the clubhouse is reserved from 9:30 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. on those two Fridays.


Quilters will resume business meetings on September 13, 2013 at 9:30 a.m. in the POA clubhouse.  Guests and new members are welcome to attend; no experience is necessary as experienced quilters in the group teach workshops and are willing to help potential quilters.







Multi-Media Art Classes – Annette DeLisle you have painted in the past or if you’re interested in beginning, please join us each Tuesday afternoon from 1:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. at the POA clubhouse and either find or rekindle your “artistic” talent.  We work with acrylics, watercolors, oil paint as well as pastels and pencils.  

Our outings to the Myrtle Beach Yacht Club and Vereen Gardens while the clubhouse was under construction were enjoyed by all.  The weather was beautiful and the scenes we captured on our canvases were all one of a kind.


If you’re interested, please stop by on Tuesday afternoons and check us out!  You may also contact me at 910-233-5827.

Don’t let your paints dry out!




Book Discussion GroupMargie Pettersen


A lively discussion was held at our June 21, 2013 meeting to discuss our book selections: historical fiction books, The Ocean Forest, A Murder in Myrtle Beach by local author Troy Nooe and The Paris Wife by Paula McLain.  In addition, as a follow-up to our January meeting when we discussed Alice’s Piano, the book group members met with Carolina Shores resident, Ilse Bateman, who talked about her experience at Thererseinestadt, the same detention camp at which the author, Alice Herz-Sommer was incarcerated during World War II.


At our next meeting on July 19, 2013 we will discuss two books:  “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks” by Rebecca Skloot or “A Good Hard Look” by Ann Napolitano.  Whenever two books are selected for the month, you do not have to read both books to attend.


Members are reminded to start thinking about books to recommend to the group since we will be generating a new list of books to read at our August meeting.  In addition, the group is looking forward to meeting with local author, Joan Leotta, who will speak to the group in the fall about her book, “Guilia Goes to War.” 


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!




New Friends Barbara Roth

We met at the POA clubhouse on Tuesday, June 11, 2013, to exchange our purses.  This was the brainchild of Lil Capuano who also chaired the event.  We did a good job cleaning out our closets of pocketbooks we no longer use or in several cases never used.  A couple people told stories of where they acquired the purses or used them.  After each person selected one purse a chance to steal took place.  It was a lot of fun and all attending had a fun time.


Future events took priority for most with the following results:


Margie Pettersen will lead a movie outing on July 9, 2013.  It will be a seniors' movie with beverage and popcorn at a special senior price.  Details will be sent via email.  Margie also reminded us about the pizza parties by the pool on June 12 and another in July, which will include a children's event.   I would like to know when this woman has time to sleep?


August 13, 2013 will be a night at Sunset Beach at 5:00 p.m.  Barbara Jones will plan this event and send out details.  This has been done in the past and enjoyed by all who attended.


September 10, 2013 will be led by Marlene Stewart.  She is doing a recipe sharing.  Come with a simple recipe you enjoy with your family and tell about it.  If possible, bring copies of this recipe to share with the others.  Find something new for your dining pleasure (other than reservations).


October will be at the Grapeful Sisters winery on Thursday, either the 3rd or 10th depending on availability.  This is being led by Charlotte Csernecky, who did such a wonderful job with the La Belle Amie winery tour that she is doing  another. 


November is being checked out by Maslin to be a trip to the Atlantic Stage Dinner show and we can include our significant other if we choose or leave him home if he is on a time out.


Remember this activity is open to all residents old and new.  Don't let the title fool you!   It is just ladies having a good time together.  Come join us!




Sunday Scramble--Diana Mardall

The Carolina Shores Sunday Scramble Group played one of the Big Cats – Lion’s Paw - on June 9, 2013.

On July 14, 2013 we’re playing at Oyster Bay.  First tee time is 8:20 a.m. and the cost is $32 plus tax.  This price includes breakfast, lunch and two drinks (soda, iced tea or draft beer).  Hosts will be Bob and Barbara Jones.  There is still no bulletin board at the POA clubhouse to post the sign-up sheet so if you haven’t already signed up and want to play, please call Bob (575-7150). 


New members are always welcome.  If you would like a “test run” of the group prior to joining (our annual dues are $12 per player), please call Diana Mardall at 910-575-7804.

Tennis News Bob Anthony


Although hazy, hot and humid weather is upon us, tennis players keep on plugging.  Come join your friends and neighbors for open tennis every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 8:30 a.m.   There's always room for more. 


Three new tennis nets have been ordered and should be installed on courts numbered 2, 3 and 4 by the time you read this.  Thanks go out to Brent Horten for keeping the tennis courts looking good and in great shape.


On a sad note, the tennis community lost another of its faithful with the passing of Ed Schaack.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife Mary and the entire Schaack family.
