Message from the BoardAl Franklin, President


Happy Holidays.  Yes, we are now into the Christmas season.  The stores will be filled with shoppers and our roads will be filled with people going shopping.  We do need to remember what this holiday was set aside for and that this holiday season is not all about shopping.  It is about having family, love ones and friends to share this time with and be thankful for these individuals. 


The Holiday Party is December 7, 2014 at Sea Trail.  If you picked up tickets and you find that you are not able to attend, please call the office at 579-2044 so that we have the correct number of attendees and do not pay for no shows.


Also, if you are traveling, please be careful and have a safe trip and a great holiday season.

Candidates in Alphabetical Order


*Jack Bendy - Resident since  2010.  Graduate of Hamilton High School , Hamilton NJ and two years Graduate of Life Underwriting Training Council, New Brunswick, NJ.  2013 Graduate of NC Cooperative Extension Master Gardener Program.  EXPERIENCE/SKILLS:  I have had an interest in landscape and gardening most of my life and have planned and have created lawns and perennial gardens.  As a Brunswick County Master Gardener, I have knowledge of ground maintenance, both turf and plants.  I have been and would continue to strive to improve and maintain the appearance of the area around our POA building, picnic, tennis courts, pool areas and POA common areas.  BOARD MEMBER ACCOMPLISHMENTS:  I have served on the POA Board since March 2014 and have been responsible for maintaining the grounds as well as negotiating a contract and hiring our current landscaper.  I also served on the Recreation Committee in 2012 and 2013.


Al Franklin - Resident since 1996.  EDUCATION: AA in Business Management.  EXPERIENCE/SKILLS:  Retired US Government and Real Estate.  I was a field supervisor for 5 years while employed by the US Government and I managed my family’s electrical contracting business.  I served as President of my POA in Maryland and Virginia and have served on the Carolina Shores ACC Committee for four years.  I have been on the Carolina Shores POA Board for fourteen years and am currently serving as President of the POA.  I know the history of the POA and the guidelines of the Declaration of Restrictions.  BOARD MEMBER ACCOMPLISHMENTS:  Keeping the dues down and ensuring that all the ACC requirements are followed.  BOARD AND COMMUNITY AREAS OF INTEREST:  President, Vice President and Architectural Control.


*Peter J Kirkby – Resident since 2006.  EDUCATION:  B.S. Applied Mathematics. B.S Physics and M.S. Computer Science.  EXPERIENCE/SKILLS:  During many years of consulting at the highest levels in the financial industry, it was necessary to be able to communicate at all levels.  Hopefully the skills I have learned can be utilized on the POA Board.  If elected, I would strive to ensure that all POA members get fair, impartial and honest consideration for their and the communities issues and it is therefore my wish to be able to support at every level.  My time has been committed to raising money for veterans who have physical or financial needs.  Previously I had chaired the Architectural Control Committee.

ACC CornerBob Jones, Board V.P. and Joe Martere, ACC Chairperson


The ACC would like to remind all residents who have dogs that ALL dog droppings must be picked up regardless of where it occurs.  We have noticed that a few individuals are walking their dogs onto POA recreation areas and not removing dog droppings.  This is a violation of the DOR Section 6, Sub-Section 4.  You can be subject to a fine if you are one of the offenders.  Please cooperate so that all residents can enjoy the public areas that the Grounds committee has put great effort into cleaning up, and having them be accessible.  The Town of Carolina Shores has now hired a code enforcement person that will be overseeing the various regulations of the different communities including loose dogs and other violations.


For your information - Permits for 'Alteration and Additions'

Each month the ACC will address a specific section of the DOR.  This month's point will be on the need to obtain an Alteration permit for any improvements on the exterior of your home.  Even if you are re-painting the same color, or replacing the roof shingles with new ones of the existing color, a permit is required.  Permit applications are available online and at the POA office.  Please allow a few days for us to respond as the volunteers only report for inspections on Tuesday and Thursday.



Town News from the HOA/POA Advisory CommitteeMaslin Kain


The HOA/POA Advisory Committee members bring information, ideas and issues from our communities to the other representatives on the committee and to the town administration.  Our hope is to strengthen communication within the town and provide a conduit from the residents to the administration.  All residents of the town are welcome to attend our monthly meetings and offer their thoughts on any appropriate issues.  Representatives are appointed annually by the Mayor and serve July through June.  The dates for the meetings can be found on the town website.  The next meeting is December 17, 2014.


The Commissioners, at the November meeting, voted to discontinue having a Communications Committee.  No members had been appointed for two years and the Board agreed that the website was sufficient to provide information to the residents.  The website at has been redesigned and enlarged.  It now includes a monthly bulletin, an invitation and information about future annexations, all the town ordinances and other items that may be of interest to the residents.

Want to be a Secret Santa?Joyce Dunn


Here is a partial listing of our neighbors in need here in Brunswick County.  Please consider gifting someone less fortunate than yourselves this Christmas Holiday season.


BIG ANGELS HELPING LITTLE ANGELS  Building Hope Ministries works with incarcerated adults in the prisons.  At Christmastime, the children of these people are often forgotten.  Building Hope provides stockings for 591 children that are filled with goodies like coloring books, pencils, crayons, hair brushes, barrettes, hand lotion, small race cars, snack crackers, candy canes, etc.  Items can be dropped off at 1009 Hewett Road, Supply or call 842-2711 for larger pickups of stocking stuffer items on Sunday, December 20, 2014, from 4:00 - 6:00 p.m.


COOKIE DROP..There will be a "Cookie Drop-in" at Sharon UMC on Holden Beach Road for 30 prisoner’s children.  Desserts, finger sandwiches, juice boxes, chips and dips are needed.  Contact Rev. Donna Phelps at 842-2711 if you want to help.


COMFORT SOCKS is a ministry for homeless people.  Men’s Crew length white cotton socks can be used for their hands as well as their feet.  Imagine if you had only one pair of socks — or none?  Contact Theresa Tese at 269-8577 or send them to her at P.O. Box 477, Supply, NC 28462.


ST. JAMES THE FISHERMAN COAT CLOSET is a ministry in Shallotte that provides free winter coats to those in need.  Sizes needed range from infants to adults, male and female.  See if you have a gently worn coat or a “Northern-weight” coat you brought here that is too heavy for Carolina weather.  It would be perfect for a homeless person or a child waiting for the school bus on a cold Carolina winter morning.  Scarves, caps and mittens are also welcome.  The Coat Closet is at St. James on Main Street by Jerome’s restaurant and is open on Tuesday and Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. until the end of March 2015.


TOYS FOR TOTS  There is a collection box at the POA clubhouse.  They request donations of new, unwrapped toys for children of all ages.  The Marine Corps League takes care of distributing these locally for the holidays.  Try to drop your toys by the first week of December.


CHECK WITH YOUR CHURCH for other opportunities to help provide a Merry Christmas for someone you don’t even know.  Most churches have listings of people who could use a helping hand during the holiday season.



Tastefully Done Meal ServiceBob Anthony


Do you need help with some meals because you're not feeling well or do you just want a break from cooking?  Tastefully Done is a unique chef service providing you affordable customized meals.  This is a weekly or bi-weekly service.  Call Carol at (843) 222-5929.




Needlework NewsMargie Pettersen


The Needlework group assembled at the POA clubhouse on Monday, November 10, 2014.  This group meets in the POA boardroom* on the second Monday of each month at 10:00 a.m. to sit and knit or crochet.  We have no officers or dues and you’ll find us around the table chatting and working.  We welcome donations of yarn or needlework supplies of any kind and use the donated yarn for our charitable works.  Currently we are donating baby items to the Brunswick Medical Center maternity ward and small blankets and prayer shawls to Lower Cape Fear Hospice.


If you’re new to the community and love working with your hands, this is the group for you.  You don’t have to be experienced to join us; we have members willing to help you.  After our next meeting, December 8, 2014, we will go out to lunch at a local restaurant.


*Please enter through the POA office to access the boardroom.

Recreation CommitteeBarbara Roth


BINGO was very successful with approximately 40 to 50 participants.  It was suggested that we repeat this again in the near future.  A special thank you to committee members who gave assistance and to new residents Maryann and John Williams who called and verified the bingos.  Watch each month for updates on future fun events.


There will be a Christmas Concert at the POA clubhouse on Tuesday, December 16, 2014, at 7:00 p.m.  There is limited seating so call Susan Scott at 540-5432 for tickets.




New FriendsFlo Pflaster


Joyce Dunn led the November 11, 2014 meeting of New Friends.  We first held a moment of silence to honor the veterans for Veterans Day.


Wendy Horten reminded everyone that New Friends has supported the South Brunswick Interchurch Council by donations of $20.  Each donation provides a Christmas Turkey Dinner for families in need in the South Brunswick area. Wendy and Joyce will accept these donations.


We discussed many other ways people in need can be assisted during the holiday season.  Mary Pritchard said she would develop a list of local organizations that provide for the needy.


The rest of the time was spent catching up on news of many of the residents, and items of interest to all of us.


We then decorated the Christmas tree with ornaments brought in by members.  If you have not yet stopped by the POA clubhouse, it is worth the trip to see this tree.  It is probably the most beautifully decorated tree we’ve had in many years.

Everyone brought something to eat and a bountiful, delicious lunch was shared.


Next month, we will repeat the “ugly/funny” sweater event from last year since it was so much fun.  Wear a sweater or shirt that fits this description, bring a pot luck food item, and be prepared to play silly games and have a great time!  New Friends meets monthly on the second Tuesday at 10:30 a.m. at the POA clubhouse, unless otherwise announced. Everyone is welcome.  You do not need to be new to attend.  There are no officers or dues, just a friendly group of people who enjoy being with others.  Please remember to bring a non perishable food item for the SBIC pantry.  Mark your calendars and read this column monthly so you don’t miss out on these fun events!



Book Discussion GroupMargie Pettersen


On November 21, 2014 we met to discuss our reading selections.  Two books about famous 19th century female humanitarians: One Glorious Ambition:  The Compassionate Crusade of Dorothea Dix by Jane Kirkpatrick and The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd, which details the lives of Angelina and Sarah Grimké.  Members were very impressed with the historical detail of each of these books and admired these incredibly brave women and their relentless pursuit of their humanitarian goals.  Dorothea Dix worked tirelessly to improve the treatment of the mentally ill.  The Grimké sisters were pioneers of the abolition and women’s rights movements.


At our next meeting on December 19, 2014 we will discuss After This by Alice McDermott.  This powerful novel is a vivid portrait of an American family in the middle decades of the twentieth century. Witty, compassionate, and wry, it captures the social, political, and spiritual upheavals of those decades through the experiences of a middle-class couple, their four children, and the changing worlds in which they live1.


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.  You don’t have to commit to reading all of the books to be part of the group.  If you are intrigued by the December choice or the topic, feel free to drop in and share your perspective and insights on either book.  In months when there are two books to be discussed, you may read one or the other, or both, if you so choose.


On Thursday December 11, in additional to our regular book discussions, there will be a talk by local author, Lenke Brown at the home of Margie Pettersen.  Lenke lived in Hungary during WWII and the Hungarian Revolution in 1956 and her book recounts her life and immigration to the U.S.  Call Margie at 860-307-3175 if you are interested in reading her book,  A Struggle to Survive, and listening to the author talk.

Carolina Shores NinersJoyce Dunn

Tennis NewsBob Anthony


Now that we have overindulged for Thanksgiving and before we continue that trend during the Holiday Season, it's a good time to get in some exercise.  A good way to start is with the open tennis group every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 9:00 a.m.  Just bring your racquet and wear court shoes and join your friends and neighbors for some fun and exercise.  Everyone showing up gets to play.  Here's wishing you all a Happy, Healthy Holiday and a wonderful New Year.
