Message from the BoardAl Franklin, President


What a month October has been.  First we had the storm that caused water damage in about fifteen (15) homes in our community. Many of the owners did not have flood insurance.  Many individuals in the community volunteered to help those without insurance.  Joyce Dunn and Tony Wagner organized the schedules for the volunteers and did a great job.  The volunteers were removing carpet, padding, hardwood floors, kitchen cabinets, and hauling the debris to the Brunswick County Landfill.  Also, the Baptist church sent crews into the area to help those without insurance and we thank them for all their work.


All of the individuals that helped in one way or another did a great job. Thank you all for your time in these matters. Now it is time to get the homes back to normal.  It is nice to live in a community that pulls together to help neighbors when they are in need.


Then the POA sponsored candidates night for the Town election.  Thanks to all who attended and contributed to the meeting.  I think we all found out who we would vote for from the results.


On your next visit to the POA building, take notice of the mulch that was put down.  It really looks good.


As we go into November, let’s not forget Thanksgiving Day.  This is the time to be thankful for the many blessings we have received over this past year.  If you will be traveling for Thanksgiving, have a safe trip.


Remember the POA election is coming up.  We have three positions open on the Board; if interested, please fill out an application.


The town has requested the email list for the Carolina Shores community.  Since some of you do not want your email public, we are reluctant to give them our list.  If you want the town to have your email address in order to make sure you receive emails from them, please send an email to the town with your name and address and a note to include you on their email list.



REMEMBER:  The CSPOA quarterly meeting is Monday, November 2, 2015, at 7:00 p.m. at the POA clubhouse.  Hope to see you there.








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

November 2, 2015 7:00 P.M. QUARTERLY MEETING







How to Submit Articles to the Bulletin

The DEADLINE for submitting articles for the Bulletin is 5:00 p.m. on the 20th of each month for the following month’s issue.

YOU MUST EMAIL ARTICLES  to:  cspoabulletin@gmail.comDo not use the office email.  Be sure to include the name of the activity in the “subject” line of your email.  Thank you.





ACC CornerJoe Martere, ACC Chairperson and Peter Kirkby, POA Board Liaison


This past month we continued to inform owners of any possible violations of the DoR concerning A/C heat pump units, fuel tanks and yards among others.  We are also contacting owners of unimproved lots to ask them to please bush hog their properties.  Many are very over grown and have not been attended to for a long time.


It is election time in our community, and if you wish to place a sign of support for a candidate on your property, please call or stop by the POA office to complete a sign request.  Remember, that you have to remove the sign no later than seven (7) days after the election.


REMEMBER:  When you do anything on the outside of your house, with the exception landscaping, you need to apply for a permit.  This includes repairs, painting the same color,  new construction, tree removal, etc.  The process is simple and most things are approved.



2016 BudgetKerry Jarrell, Treasurer


This year’s budget process began in August with the various CSPOA committees, board members and staff submitting funding requests for 2016 to the Finance and Audit Committee. The Committee compiled the results, which are included in this November Bulletin.  The Budget will be the primary topic at the CSPOA Quarterly meeting at 7:00 p.m. on November 2, 2015.  Members are encouraged to attend that meeting and provide their input on the budget.


The budget contains two components:  (1) an operating budget, which funds the routine expenses for the clubhouse, pool, tennis courts, office, etc., and (2) a reserve budget, which funds the annual contribution to the facility repair/replacement reserve.


In 2015 the Board and staff have worked hard to keep costs down.  As a result of that effort, the Finance and Audit Committee proposes no increase in dues for 2016.


We look forward to your input and to seeing each of you at the CSPOA Quarterly meeting on Monday, November 2, 2015.

Nextdoor Carolina ShoresTony Wagner


Please join us on Nextdoor Carolina Shores at; Code: CFAWXJ.


Don't miss out.


I just want to update you on Nextdoor Carolina Shores.  Currently 164 of your neighbors have discovered the value of belonging to Nextdoor Carolina Shores.  The Sheriff of Brunswick County monitors and posts important news on our site.  I am now working with the Town of Carolina Shores to make them “subscribers” to our site as well as the sheriff.  That way any news that would be important to us will be posted by the town.


The recent heavy rains and resulting flood we experienced showed the true purpose and value of Next-door…many people who were flooded and without flood insurance were able to post on the site and others who were available showed up to help them clean up and haul away flood damaged debris that was removed from their homes.  This helped them on their way to a quicker recovery with no charges except dump fees.  Many people, whose names in some cases were unknown, showed up without anyone prompting them to help.  We were able to get several tons of debris taken to the landfill in a relatively short amount of time.  Joyce Dunn was instrumental in assembling a crew and several homes were finally cleaned out in one day. Extraordinary!


I have mentioned before you can do all sorts of things on Nextdoor like offer a service, sell an item you no longer need, ask for a professional in nearly any field and someone will make a recommendation.  Earlier this month people were in trouble and posted on the site.  They were quickly answered by their neighbors, you and I, and help arrived.  We have even established a group within Nextdoor for the “Carolina Shores Care Team”.  The group members can post on there and provide transportation for those in need.  The posts only go to the members of the team, not the entire community.  There is also a group in Nextdoor called “Carolina Shores Nite Out” where we post an outing and you can sign up to go.  Last month we went to dinner and a theatre in Myrtle Beach.  This month we are going to a “progressive dinner”.  It’s a great time to meet your neighbors and spend a little time together having fun.


Some have said there are too many emails and have left the group because of that.  The “settings” page will allow you to completely tailor the site to your preferences.  You can eliminate emails entirely and simply read the news when you like or you can get emails once a day if you like.  The other extreme is to set it so you receive all emails on your computer, phone or tablet all the time like I do as “Lead” member.  Check out your “settings” page.


Some have asked how to get to Next-door?  All you have to do is type NEXTDOOR.COM (one word without hyphen) in your browser address line and provide your physical address in Carolina Shores and your email address.  Also, you can send me an email at  Tell me to sign you up and write your physical address here in Carolina Shores in your note.  I will have your email address in your email.  I will then send you an invitation directly through Nextdoor.  Your information will be verified and you are in.  Start getting the news of our community and posting your own news.


Currently, our policy is that the posts are kept within our community here even though there are seven (7) "nextdoor" communities in the area.  The general feeling is we don't necessarily want to share our concerns with other communities or invite comments.  If that posture changes, I will be there to let you know.



Tax Return Assistance Barbara Hutton


Beginning in February, 2016 tax return assistance is available at Hickman’s Crossroads Library provided by community volunteers.  The program is supported by the AARP Foundation and the IRS.  All volunteers are trained and certified by the IRS after taking classes and passing a test.  For a number of years many residents in Carolina Shores have taken advantage of this free community service to have their tax returns completed quickly and easily.


To make the program run smoothly, a “greeter” is available to sign people in and to answer questions.  At this time we are looking for a few dependable volunteers who might enjoy participating in this program.  The volunteer needs to be organized, cheerful and helpful.  There is no test or tax training for this role.  You would “work” one session per week for ten weeks, February 1 to April 15, 2016.  The program operates on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.


If you have a few spare hours in your schedule, and enjoy visiting with others in your community, please call Barbara Hutton at 579-5324 to learn more about this opportunity.

Fall Getaway - October 7 and 8, 2015

Eleven Renegades and their guests escaped waterlogged Carolina Shores for the Sandhills of North Carolina to play golf in the Annual Fall Getaway.  On October 7, at Seven Lakes Country Club, the first place winners were Sue Hensler, Jay Leskowicz, Deb Courtemanche and Betty Johnston with a 3 Low Net score of 214.  On October 8, at Legacy Golf Links, first place winners of a Modified Scramble were Karen Hertling, Gary Hertling, Betty Johnston and Tom Nally with a score of 68.  Congratulations to the winners and kudos to Debbie Creamer and Deb Courtemanche for hosting this very successful and fun event.


The Renegades play every Thursday morning at Carolina Shores Golf and Country Club.  If you have just moved to the area or if you have lived here for years and would like to play in an 18-hole ladies golf league, contact Kathy Harniman at 575-1120 or Phillip Bureau at the golf course for more details.  New members are always welcome.



Tennis NewsBob Anthony

Here's wishing everyone a Happy, Healthy Thanksgiving.



Garden Club NewsJeanne Paff


The October meeting of Garden Club featured a power point by Master Gardener Donna Coulson on the topic of growing herbs on the coast.  Herbs like our sandy soil and warm climate.  It was surprising to most that a scented geranium is considered an herb, not a flower.

Our November meeting, to be held on November 11, 2016 will highlight a presentation on coastal photography.


Upcoming events

New Horizons SinglesJune Wilkinson


MCj04398570000[1]It seems that a good time was had by all at our October meeting.  We thank Pat Ferstler and Anne Walsh for providing the fun game for us all.


Our next gathering will be November 10, 2015 at 5:00 p.m.  It has been suggested we have a movie night along with sharing food and fellowship.  More details will be provided to members closer to that date.  We would welcome any singles who would like to join us.  There is always delicious food to share and good fellowship.  We miss seeing those members who have missed the last few gatherings.  Come on back; we would love to see you all.



Needlework NewsMargie Pettersen


MCj03012760000[1]The Needlework group assembled at the POA clubhouse on Monday, October 12, 2015.  This group meets in the POA Board Room* 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, Eileen Nawara, and Loretta Ebanks donated numerous items to the Brunswick Community Center: sweaters, blankets, hats, and scarves.  All items are then distributed to adults and children in need.  Winter is coming, so we are knitting up a storm!  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 November 9, 2015.  Barbara Roth will be bringing dessert.


*Please enter through the POA office to access the Board Room.



New FriendsMichele Depalo


The October 13, 2015 new friends meeting was led by Mary Pritchard with approximately 25

people in attendance.


New neighbors were introduced as follows: Sue and Gary Baird (Gate 8), Mike and Judy Sullivan (29 C.S. Pkwy.), Carol St. Hilaire (34 Bayberry Ct.), and Nancy Karnolt (27 Brassie Dr.).  Each shared a little about themselves and why they chose Carolina Shores as their new home.


Margie Petterson spoke about “New Friends Favorites”, a list of favorite businesses, medical providers, etc. that she compiled on the suggestions of the group.  Anyone can view the list on  The list and the website have proven to be handy resources.


Joyce Dunn reported on the question of a defibrillator at the POA clubhouse and/or pool.  It was recommended that this not be pursued as (1) trained personnel are needed to handle this type of medical equipment, and (2) we are in close proximity to emergency responders.  It was suggested that, more importantly, a full CPR training program be offered. The first aid kit at our pool will be updated for next spring.


Two candidates who are running for town office next month spoke to the group:  Mary Timothy, candidate for Carolina Shores Town Commissioner and Joyce Dunn, candidate for Mayor.  Both women shared their views on what is needed to make Town Hall more accessible to the public.  It was agreed by all that communication between the Town and the community needs to be restored and citizen involvement encouraged.  They hope to bring back the leadership, which is currently lacking and create a healthy balance of perspectives on the Board.


Another topic of discussion was the lack of response by the Town government during our flooding situation.  There is currently a list at the Town Hall for residents to sign up for FEMA assistance.  Another resource that was suggested was the North Carolina Veterans site which offers disaster relief for veterans.


After the meeting, many of the members enjoyed lunch at The Patio.



• Nov. 10, 2015:  New Friends Meeting – Chaired by Marlene Stewart.  Join us for the annual trimming of the POA Christmas tree.  Lunch will be provided.

• Nov. 26, 2015:  Thanksgiving Dinner at the POA clubhouse – All are welcome.  Bring a potluck dish to share.

People are needed to serve on the dinner committee to coordinate the food, and volunteers are needed to cook the turkeys.  Dinner is at 4:00 p.m. at the POA clubhouse.  Call Mary Pritchard at 579-4684 if you can help.

•• December 8, 2015:  New Friends’ Christmas luncheon.

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 GroupPat McKay


MCj04399110000[1]On October 16, 2015 we discussed The Outlander, Diana Gabaldon, which was well received by the group.  This book, set in 18th Century Scotland, is a story of history, adventure and love.  Members noted the attention to detail:  life in the castle, floggings, medical care, witch trials, and life in a Scottish clan.  Gabaldon was praised for her writing style and the development well-drawn characters.


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.


At our next meeting, November 20, 2015, we will discuss The Boys in the Boat:  Nine Americans and Their Epic Quest for Gold at the 1936 Olympics, Daniel J. Brown.

Carolina Shores Quilting Guild Mary Dilettuso


MCj02911050000[1]The Carolina Shores Quilt Guild was held on Friday, October 9, 2015, in the POA clubhouse.  Our president, Inez Barrett, opened the meeting at 9:30 a.m.  We talked about possible projects in the future: block of the month, a pizza box project and our November program (a table runner with a Christmas theme).


We have voted on keeping Ronald McDonald House as the charity that we will continue to support through donating our quilts.  We will try to travel to Durham twice a season to drop off our quilts.  Anyone who wants to drive or go along for this experience should contact Inez Barrett.


Our program chairman, Lucy Timmerman, introduced the next phase of the “Rancher’s Daughter” quilt that we are working on and Barbara Hutton presented her program, “How to do Paper Piecing”.  We worked on both of these projects during our classroom segment of the meeting.


We had two visitors to our Quilt Guild, Marian from Southport and Jane Connor from North Myrtle Beach.  We hope they will return to join our group.


In November we will be making a Christmas table runner.  The program will be taught by Lucy Timmerman.  We hope you will join us at that time.  We know there are many of you who will be looking for Christmas ideas.  Nothing is better than receiving a lovely quilted present that will last for Christmases to come.


Carol Nast, Barbara Erickson, Lucy Timmerman, and Barbara Hutton all had beautiful quilting projects to display in the Show and Tell portion of our meeting.


Thanks to Mr. Bertrand, the scissor man, who came at 8:30 a.m. to sharpen scissors, garden tools, etc. for Carolina Shores residents.  We greatly appreciated having him here.


The Quilt Guild meets on the second Friday and the fourth Friday of each month at 9:30 a.m.  Bring a brown bag lunch and join us for lunch and fellowship in the kitchen.  Learn more about quilting and the great ladies in our guild.  Guests and new members are always welcome.
