Message from the BoardAl Franklin, President


The new Carolina Shores Board of Directors has been elected and they are as follows: Alvin Franklin, President; Peter Kirkby, Vice President; Joyce Dunn, Secretary; Marlene Stewart, Jack Bendy and Diana Mardall, Directors.  Kerry Jarrell will remain as Treasurer, but is not a member of the Board of Directors.


Bob Jones tendered his resignation from the Board this week due to family obligations.  The Board is looking to fill this opening.  Any member in good standing that is interested, please contact the POA office or any of the Board of Directors.


I would like to thank Bob Jones, Brent Horten and Kerry Jarrell for their time and service as a member of the Board of Directors.  These individuals have put a lot of time into managing and improving the community of Carolina Shores. Your service is greatly appreciated.


Also, we need volunteers to serve on several committees.  Believe it or not, it is fun and rewarding.  Looking forward to your call to the POA office.


We are again having problems with individuals damaging the new fence that surrounds the property at the POA clubhouse.  This is vandalism and the authorities are notified each time.  It is not only vandalism, but it is in violation of  the Declaration of Restrictions, Section 6 Item 13.  It states "There shall be no access to any Lot on the perimeter of the Subdivision except from designated roads within the Section or Subdivision."  The other reason is money. Each time there is POA property damage, it cost money to repair (members money).  Please leave and return to our community by way of the approved access roads.


We have had some complaints  about residents playing loud music past 11:00 p.m.  Please have consideration for your community and control your activities so they do not disturb neighbors late at night.  We appreciate your cooperation.


There has been a report about another SCAM.  This one is from a person claiming to be from Microsoft saying you have a virus on your computer.  Please know that Microsoft does not make calls like this.  Also, please be wary of anyone calling you about services or issues when you did not call them first.  So many of these calls are SCAMS and the caller just wants to take advantage of you.





March 11, 2015 – 9:30 A.M. MONTHLY BOARD MEETING

ACC CornerJoe Martere, ACC Chairperson


The ACC would like to remind you again that whenever you do any work on the exterior of your house, you must apply for an Alteration/Addition permit at the POA office.  In most cases a permit is not required from the Town of Carolina Shores when one is required from the POA.  When you are contemplating any exterior work on your home, such as replacing the roof shingles, painting or installing new windows, please call the office and inquire if a permit is needed.  Any landscaping or driveway and sidewalk work does not require a permit.  The ACC will respond within five (5) business days, if not sooner, after receiving the request.


We have been inspecting empty lots in the community on an ongoing basis in an effort to bring these lots into the community guidelines.  Please remember that it is illegal to place debris from your yard onto any un-improved lot in the community.  You are responsible for the  proper disposal of any cuttings or clippings created by you or your landscaping company.  The recycling center is available for you to deposit those materials

Tennis NewsBob Anthony


February weather has really tested the mettle of our tennis players.  Hopefully, now that we are in the month that ushers in Spring, we can expect some milder temperatures, more conducive to tennis and other outdoor activities.  Come join your friends and neighbors for open tennis every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 9:00 a.m.  Everyone showing up will get to play.


The tennis community lost one of its own in the passing of Marty Gilbert.  Marty always enjoyed his time on the tennis courts and having fun with everyone there.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to his widow Joan and her family.

The Carolina Shores Garden Club newsletter is now on the POA website. 



Needlework NewsMargie Pettersen


The Needlework group assembled at the POA clubhouse on Monday, February 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.  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.  Our next meeting will be March 9, 2015.  Flo Pflaster will be providing dessert.


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



New FriendsFlo Pflaster


The February 10, 2015 meeting of New Friends was led by Marlene Stewart.  We had hoped to have Lynn Darby speak about her experience as a children’s book writer, but unfortunately she was ill and unable to attend.  This event will be postponed until another date.  Instead we discussed many issues of importance around the community, including the role of the ACC and the POA board.  New members of the group were greeted. 


In honor of Valentine’s Day, we all received little chocolate hearts, courtesy of Barbara Jones, and plastic hearts filled with candy.  We went around the room and each told of something we love!  A large group then went to Sunrise Pancake House for a delicious lunch.


The next meeting will be held on March 10, 2015, and will be led by Mary Pritchard.


New Friends meets monthly on the second Tuesday of the month 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!



New Horizons SinglesJune Wilkinson


We thank Helen Morrison and Maude Davis for organizing our February feast.  The turkey Helen provided was delicious.  We got a good surprise as a trivia game was arranged for entertainment.  The questions were challenging and had to do with Valentine's day.  Thank you to both ladies for a good meeting.


For our March meeting we are going to the VFW on Tuesday March 17, 2015.  There will be a corned beef and cabbage dinner.  We will gather at 4:30 p.m.  The cost is $11.00.  Madeline Mahony is organizing this event for us.  Call her at 579-9317 if you have any questions.  In the past the food has been excellent and one of our members usually brings a delicious Irish soda bread to share.  We are a fun group who will welcome any singles to join us.



Carolina Shores Quilting GuildMary Dilettuso


The Carolina Shores Quilt Guild raffle raised $700.00 for the Welcome Home Veterans and Resource Group in Little River, SC.  Our guild raffled a patriotic quilt made by group members and quilted by Barbara Hutton.  Earlier in the month members from our Quilt Guild presented the donation to the veteran’s group.  Nancy Sneska has taken pictures and they will be given to the Brunswick Beacon for publication.


The Carolina Shores Quilt Guild met on February 13, 2015 in the POA clubhouse.  Thirteen members were present.  Co-President, Rosemary Connell, called the meeting to order at 9:30 a.m.  Our speaker for this month’s meeting was Kathy Stuart from Ocean Ridge Plantation.  She and her friend, Kathy Wicke, treated us to a fabulous presentation and demonstration of “art quilting”.  Her demonstration was very informative and we delighted in her expertise in this fairly new technique of quilting.


Next month we will be having a beading demonstration given by Donna Lockwood.  She will be teaching us how to add beads to our quilts and other projects to give them a new look. 


Many beautiful quilts were shown by our guild members and displayed at our Show and Tell.  All year we make charity quilts and donate them to the Ronald McDonald House, Chapel Hill.  In April our group is planning on making a trip to Chapel Hill to deliver these quilts.  If you are interested in going, please contact Kathy Welker at 579-9357 for the details

Our guild meets on the second Friday of each month, September – June, at 9:30 a.m. in the POA clubhouse.  We also meet on the fourth Friday at the same time for a workshop and fellowship.  Guests and members are always welcome.  No experience is necessary.  Our members are always willing to help



Book Discussion GroupMargie Pettersen and Pat McKay


On February 20, 2015 we met to discuss our reading selections:  The Light Between Two Oceans by M. L. Stedman and Calling Me Home by Julie Kibler.  Both books were well received by the book group and led to interesting discussions.  Stedman’s book beautifully described life in a lighthouse off the coast of Australia and portrayed the beauty of the land and the isolation of the life of a lighthouse keeper and his wife in the early 20th century.  There is a bit of suspense to her story as you are wondering how they will deal with the unexpected arrival of an infant on their doorstep.  The latter book deals with race relations in the 1930s, but also issues of friendship and relationships.  Two women, 89-year old Isabelle and her hairdresser, Dorrie, embark on a road trip from Texas to Ohio to attend a funeral.  Again, there is a bit of mystery to this novel.  As the older woman, Isabelle, slowly reveals the tale of her long lost love; you can’t help but wonder how her story will end and what they will find when they reach their destination.  Readers noted that both books were well written and the characters were vividly portrayed.


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 March 20, 2015.


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

March - Johnny Cash-The Life by Robert Hilburn

April - Me Before You by JoJo Moyes; Poetry by Kitty McDonough

May - A Walk Across the Sun by Corban Addison

June - Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption 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: 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.
