Message from the BoardAl Franklin, President


Happy July 4, 2015.  If you are traveling, please be careful and if you are having company visit, enjoy your time with them and be safe.


Hope you are surviving the heat. Take it easy and drink plenty of liquids.


The POA Board is in the final stages of completing the Rules and Regulations document.  This document will be the guideline for complying with the Deed of Restrictions (DoR ).  The next step is to have the POA attorney review it to assure that the document will meet the legal requirements. This Rules and Regulation document will save the POA time and money by not having to amend the actual Declaration of Restrictions.  I want to thank the Board for their time in developing this Rules and Regulations document.


The POA beautification program is progressing slow, but sure.  Grass seed has been planted at Gate 6.  The Board would like to thank the residents on Gate 6 who have allowed the POA to use their water for watering the area.  We are waiting on some stone to be delivered for a community entrance at Gate 2.


Our committee for planning and designing a new pool house structure is still in process.  Also because the current pump house at the pool is about ready to fall down, this same committee has developed a plan to replace it.  This committee is hoping to have the plans for this project completed by the fall of 2015.


The new procedure at the POA office for getting approval to remove trees seems to be working well.  The property owners seem to be pleased and the Town is also pleased because it saves them a lot of time and paper work.


The POA Board of Directors voted at their last meeting to have Gere Dale be the liaison between the POA and the Town.


Please be aware that not all landscapers and tree removal companies are good at their job.  First, remember to always get a current copy of their liability insurance.  Second, never pay in advance for services only.  Generally, a business will ask for 50% down if they are providing product.  A better way is to pay for the product yourself and then pay for the service when it is complete.  Third, always get recommendations from your neighbors.  This will help assure that you will get quality service.  Also, remember that not all tree cutters are arborists.  An arborist is certified and should be able to present his certification to you.  Anyone soliciting their services or goods should be checked out at the Central North Carolina Better Business Bureau before you hire or purchase goods from them.  Stay aware so you are not scammed.


Please remember when walking, you walk against the traffic and when biking, you ride with the traffic.

Memorial Day PicnicNancy Sneska


IMG_0047.jpgWoW!  That’s what the community is saying about the Memorial Day picnic.  Everything went off without a hitch!  Sue Hensler is doing a great job of leading the Recreation committee.  The picnic was chaired by Charlotte Csernecky, assisted by Arlene Limpert.  Everyone on the committee helped in some way.  People liked the music, the games, the catered food, and all the delicious desserts.

Notes from our residents follow:


To POA Board, Picnic planners, Picnic volunteers,


There have been many really good Memorial Day picnics in the past.  This one, on Sunday, May 24, was especially great!  The food,, catered by Jerome’s Restaurant in Shallotte was excellent, the DJ was excellent and the thought and preparation and effort that the Recreation committee, its many volunteers and the POA Board that supported it all made this an excellent, neighborly event.  Thanks to all of them.


For those who missed it, let me just say don’t miss the next one.  I’m sure all who attended had a truly wonderful time.


Teddy Altreuter


I wanted to congratulate the Recreation committee for a really great Memorial Day picnic.  I thought the food was delicious and the serving of same was handled well.  There were no long waits.  Sue Hensler was a super emcee and I really enjoyed the music of the DJ.  We  can thank God for giving us the beautiful day.



Independence Day Celebration


The Calabash Fire Department will be doing fireworks on July 4 starting at 6:00 p.m. on the waterfront in Calabash.  Come join the fun.  There will be food, games and music.

Tennis NewsBob Anthony


MCj00906290000[1]I don't know if the current heat wave is a result of global warming or not; I do know that it is hot and humid and re-hydrating is a must.  So if you decide to play tennis outside, anywhere, be sure and take frequent breaks and drink lots of water and electrolytes.  So, come on out and join your friends and neighbors for open tennis at our courts every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 8:30 a.m.  It's lots of fun and good exercise.  But whatever exercise you prefer, remember to drink lots of fluids, stay hydrated.



Carolina Shores NinersJoyce Dunn


The Carolina Shores Lady Niners is a warm and welcoming group of women who like to play nine holes of golf each week.  We are a great group for women dusting off rusty skills, trying out the game for the first time, or deciding nine holes is a better fit than eighteen holes.  You can try out playing as a guest with us for up to three times before deciding to become a member.  We have a weekly play signup sheet on the table at the back room of the golf clubhouse.  For more information contact our president, Nancy Harthausen, at 575-2923.


New Horizons SinglesJune Wilkinson


MCj04398570000[1]At our June meeting we played bingo.  Some of us won scratch off tickets as prizes.  We had a good time playing and chatting.  The food was good as always. We thank Carla Urban for organizing this.


We will not meet again until September.  Enjoy your summer.



Carolina Shores Quilting GuildMary Dilettuso


MCj02911050000[1]The Carolina Shores Quilt Guild met on Friday, June 12, 2015, in the POA clubhouse at 10:30 a.m.  The meeting was called to order by our co-president, Rosemary Connell.  There were 20 members in attendance.


This was our last Guild Meeting of the season.  We will resume quilting in the fall.  At this meeting we installed our new Board Members for the 2015-2016 season.  They are:  Inez Barrett, President; Paula Delahunty, Vice President; Diane Rosa, Treasurer; and Mary Dilettuso, Secretary.  Outgoing co-president, Rosemary Connell, presented each of the new board members with a bouquet of flowers.  Kay Forbes, outgoing co-president, asked each board member to accept the obligations of the induction ceremony.


Kathy Welker and Paula Delahunty delivered sixty four of our quilts to the Ronald McDonald House in Charlotte.  The quilts were greatly appreciated.  Each member strives to contribute one quilt a season to this great cause.


Many beautiful quilts and fabric baskets were shown at the Show and Tell portion of our meeting.  We all enjoyed seeing the talents of our guild members.


We all said a sad goodbye to Beverly Henderson, one of our guild members and past president, who is relocating to Charlottesville, VA.  We will miss you Beverly.  Thank you for all your hard work.


The guild meets on the second Friday of each month, September to June at 9:30 a.m. in the POA clubhouse.  We also meet on the fourth Friday every month at 9:30 a.m. for a workshop and fellowship.  Bring a brown bag lunch and join us.  Guests and members are always welcome.  Learn more about quilting and the great ladies in our guild.  HAVE A GREAT SUMMER!



Needlework NewsMargie Pettersen


MCj03012760000[1]The Needlework group assembled at the POA clubhouse on Monday, June 9, 2015.  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.


Barbara Roth, our “Queen Busy Bee”, has been knitting up a storm (as usual) and created three afghans, six shawls, three baby hoodies, and sixteen baby sweater and hat sets.  All the items were donated to the Brunswick Community Center and will be distributed to local families in need.  Donations were also made to the Pediatrics ward of the Novant hospital and Lower Cape Fear Hospice this month.  Please consider donating yarn to our group so that we may continue to support our charitable efforts.  Any yarn, any weight or color is appreciated.


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.  Our next meeting will be on July 13, 2015.  Afterwards the group will go out to lunch at an area restaurant.


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




New FriendsFlo Pflaster


The June 10, 2015 get together was to have been a day at the beach led by Flo Pflaster.  Unfortunately, only three other people showed up so we decided that the activity would not occur.  As the weather was somewhat “iffy” in the early morning, a fun indoor activity had been planned as an alternative, but that was also not to be.


Joan Masters will lead the July meeting.


P1020540.JPGNew 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!

Special thanks goes to Sharon Donahue and Carla Wagner for decorating our porch tree.  If you are interested in helping with this New Friends activity, let these gals know.  The next tree will be decorated for summer.

Book Discussion GroupMargie Pettersen


MCj04399110000[1]On June 19, 2015 we met to discuss our two reading selections, Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption by Laura Hillenbrand OR Whistling Past the Graveyard by Susan Crandall.  Everyone who read Unbroken was moved by this powerful book.  Hillenbrand did a wonderful job with the details and research involved in creating this book about Louis Zamperini, a downed WWII airman who survived adrift a life raft for weeks, and then persevered the tortures of a Japanese prisoner of war camp.  Words and phrases used to describe the book were “powerful, uplifting, interesting, impressive, strong, and amazing."


There were mixed reviews of the second book, Whistling Past the Graveyard by Susan Crandall.  This is the story of a young girl, Starla, who travels to find her mother, and finds love and adventure along the way.  She meets, Eula, a black woman who had “adopted” an abandoned baby, and together they “hit the road."  This poignant, and sometimes humorous book, was set in the 1960s and touches on race relations and women who endure abusive relationships.


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 selection or the topic, feel free to drop in and share your perspective and insights of the book.  In months when there are two books to be discussed, you may read one or the other, or both, if you so choose.  Our next meeting will be July 17, 2015.


Here is a list of the books to be discussed by the group in the upcoming months:

July- Forest Lover by Susan Vreeland OR Guests on Earth by Lee Smith

August- An Invisible Thread: The True Story of an 11-year old Panhandler, A Busy Sales Executive, and an Unlikely Meeting by Laura Schroff, Valerie Salembier, and Alex Tresniowski


In August, we meet and select a new list of books to be read for the subsequent year.

A special Thanks to my friends here in Carolina Shores.  As been said over all these years "you're the best".  Who shopped for me, who went to the recycle center, made up my bed for me and came in and cooked my dinner for me.  What a great group.  My daughter and her husband made sure I got to my doctor appointments besides taking me at 2:00 a.m. on two occasions to the emergency room.


Thanks you a bunch.  I'll keep you all in my prayers.
