Message from the BoardAl Franklin, President


The Carolina Shores Property Owners’ Association (POA) is not just made up of the individuals who happen to be on the Board of Directors.  The POA is made up of each and everyone who owns property, attends meetings, pays their dues and expresses their opinions.  Each and everyone of you is an important part of the community of Carolina Shores.  Without your support and concern, we would not have this beautiful community we call home.


A good example of this is the picnic we had this weekend.  Every one that I have spoken to said it was one of the best picnics, if not the best that we have had.  Thanks goes to the recreation committee for a job well done.


We all need to be thankful to all who volunteer for their dedication to Carolina Shores.


Clint Finger told me that Sunday after the picnic someone started a fire on the basketball court, which also caught a picnic table on fire.  I am glad that Clint saw it and put it out.  Law enforcement was notified.


The Board continues to work on the Declaration of Restrictions (DoR) by creating a Property Owners’ Rules and Regulations Handbook.


The Architectural Control Committee has completed the inspection of the community and has been sending notices out to get all in compliance with the DoR.  They may have missed some things so if you see any items please let the POA office know.


Have a good June.





June 10, 2015 – 9:30 A.M. MONTHLY BOARD MEETING

Memorial Day PicnicTeddy Altreuter


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, 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.



Care Team Needs VolunteersJoyce Dunn


The Carolina Shores Care Team has, for nearly ten years, been the go-to resource for residents who have a temporary need for some help.  We give rides to the doctor, the grocery store, and even the nursing home when you have a partner who is in rehab.  We also can take your trash to the recycling center, fix you some hot meals, or help take care of your pets when you are unable to care for them.  The Care Team has two new directors, Flo Pflaster and Carla Wagner.  Flo's phone number is 575-6243 and her email address is  Carla's phone number is 252-303-0056 and her email address is  Call them as much in advance as you can to ask for some assistance. 


The Care Team also needs some new volunteers.  It is an easy and rewarding task and you don’t get called upon very often.  If you could help out, please contact Flo Pflaster or Carla ASAP.



Can you help?Marie Zaranski


If you enjoy volunteering, your Calabash EMS Thrift Store welcomes you.  Stop in or call 579-7488.

Westie ClubElliana Fetsko


Do You Own a Westie (West Highland White Terrier)?  I had the pleasure of meeting the group from the Grand Strand Westie Club on Saturday, May 2, 2015, at Market Commons in Myrtle Beach.  Beautiful little Westies and their caring owners came together just to meet and talk about their "babies".  We took a walk around the Commons and enjoyed the park setting as well.


If you own a Westie and are interested in a Carolina Shores Westie Club, contact Elliana Fetsko at 575-7557.  It would be nice to meet other Westies and their owners, go on organized walks, playtime, socialize, and also discuss health problems and pet care specific to this wonderful breed.


I look forward to hearing from you!



Music BingoBarbara Roth

Your recreation committee is busy again with plans for future events.  The next event will be on Saturday, June 27, 2015, when we will have Music Bingo at the POA clubhouse.  The time will be from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m.  The game will be played like Name That Tune with the song title in a box to be marked off.  Soda and water will be provided and each person is asked to bring a finger food to share.  There will be 4 games and a gift certificate will be awarded to the winner of each game.  The music will be from the 50's and 60's.  This is something new and sounds like it should be a lot of fun.  GET YOUR TICKETS AT THE POA OFFICE STARTING MAY 27 THROUGH JUNE 19, 2015 TO RESERVE YOUR SPOT AS THE DJ NEEDS TO PRINT ENOUGH BINGO CARDS.


Also being planned is a Trivia event for the fall so watch your bulletin for more information.



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.





Patriotic CantataJill Binseel


The annual patriotic concert will be held at the Ocean Drive Presbyterian Church on Saturday, July 4, 2015, and Sunday, July 5, 2015, at 4:00 p.m.  Everyone attending will need a ticket, which is free and can be obtained at the Chamber of Commerce in North Myrtle Beach.



New Horizons SinglesJune Wilkinson


MCj04398570000[1]For our May meeting at the picnic area, the weather was perfect and the food was better.  We thank Carla Urban for her efforts to get and bring delicious chicken pieces for us.  It was well attended and everyone seemed to have a good time visiting together.


Our last meeting before our summer break will be June 9, 2015 in the POA clubhouse at 5:00 p.m.  The members will be called about food to bring.  There is always plenty of food to share.  After enjoying a meal together, we will play bingo. We are a fun group who welcome any singles to join us.




Carolina Shores Quilting GuildMary Dilettuso


MCj02911050000[1]The regularly scheduled Carolina Shores Quilt Guild for May was an “on the road” program to Oak Island for our annual Oak Island Quilters luncheon.  The luncheon was at the Oak Island senior center building.  A lovely luncheon of soups and salads was followed by our quilt block challenge by both guilds.  There were three blue ribbons given and two of our members took home top honors.  They were Kathy Welker and Inez Barrett.  The challenge was followed by a wonderful Show and Tell.  There were approximately 75 quilters in attendance at the luncheon.  Next year the luncheon will be hosted by Carolina Shores.  We always enjoy this annual event.


Also in May we had a presentation by Heather Tighe from Ocean Ridge quilters.  Heather taught our members how to make fabric baskets.  This class was attended by many of our guild members and Heather gave us a lot of instruction and information on how to make beautiful fabric baskets of all shapes and sizes.  We look forward to presenting the results of our efforts at our Show and Tell portion of our meeting in June.


At our June 12, 2015 meeting we will be installing new officers for the 2015 -2016 Quilt Guild season.  After a short business meeting we will adjourn to The Grille House in North Myrtle Beach for our Guild’s June luncheon.  We will still be meeting for workshops on the second Friday of the month throughout the summer months.


Our guild meets on the second Friday of each month, September to June, at 9:30 a.m. in the POA clubhouse.  We also have an informal meeting on the fourth Friday at 9:30 a.m. for a workshop and fellowship.  Bring a brown bag lunch and join us.  Guests and members are always welcome.  We are always looking for new members at any skill level.  Ladies in our guild are always ready to help.  Please join us and learn more about quilting and the great ladies in our guild.



New FriendsFlo Pflaster


The May 12, 2015 meeting of New Friends was led by Barbara Jones.  She led us in a discussion about special Mother’s Day memories and gave each of us a beautiful candle which filled the room with a delightful aroma of vanilla!


Other topics of discussion came up spontaneously and we learned of several town issues, ongoing activities of the Recreation committee and possibilities of forming a new “social committee”, which may take over the former “travel committee” of a few years ago.  Coming to New Friends meetings certainly helps bond friendships and keeps you aware of all that’s going on around us!  After the meeting, most of the group went to Patio’s where we enjoyed a wonderful lunch outside with great weather.


Next month Flo Pflaster will lead the meeting, but instead of going to the POA clubhouse, we’ll go to Sunset Beach.  If you are interested, meet at the POA clubhouse at 10:15 a.m. on June 9, 2015 with your chairs, sun block, lunch, etc. and we’ll form carpools since parking there may be an issue.  In the unlikely event of rain, we’ll move into the POA clubhouse. 


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!


Dear New Friends:

I wish to thank Grayce Farley who gave me the first invite to visit your group in January that did not occur because I was under the weather.  Thank you for the second invite last month.


Lynn Darby





Book Discussion GroupSue O'Reilly


MCj04399110000[1]On May 15, 2015 we met to discuss our reading selection, A Walk Across the Sun, by Corban  Addison.  This novel, self published by the author, follows the terrifying ordeal of two  sisters from India, who become victims of the sex trade and human trafficking that plagues both the developed and under developed world today.  The story of their experiences and that of Washington lawyer, Thomas Clarke, who is struggling to cope with his own life issues, intersect and merge as the reader is enlightened, appalled and hopeful that justice will prevail.  The reader is transported to various global locations, but within the framework of the network of those despicable people who profit from the forced abduction and slavery of mostly under-age girls.


There were mixed reactions from our members.  Some thought this was written for sensationalism and only to make a profit from the often graphic depictions of violence perpetrated on the victims.  Others saw it as an expose and informational novel written from the experiences of the author, who is himself a lawyer, to bring to the wider public an awareness of this problem that crosses all continents, cultures and classes.


The Book Discussion group meets monthly in the POA library at 10:00 a.m. on the 3rd Friday of the month.  Newcomers and those who love to read are always welcome to join us.  You don’t have to commit to reading all the selections to be part of the group.  Feel free to drop in and just observe or share your insights and life experiences as we discuss the selection of the month.


Our next meeting will be June 19, 2015.  Here is a list of the books to be discussed in the upcoming months:


June- Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand OR Whistling Past the Graveyard by Susan Crandall

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

August- An Invisible Thread by Laura Schroff, Valerie Salembier and Alex Tresniowski  

In August we also meet to select a new list of books for the coming year.

Ladybirds Tournament at Carolina Shores

On April 27, a bright, beautiful sunny day, the Renegades hosted the Ladybirds Tournament at Carolina Shores Golf & Country Club.  Of the 83 participants, representing twelve area golf clubs, four Renegades were winners in their respective flights.  Karen Hertling and Donna Watkins were 1st Low Net winners in Flight 3.  In Flight 6, Teddy Altreuter was winner of 1st Low Gross and Debbie O'Dell was winner of 2nd Low Gross.
