Message from the Board – Al Franklin, President


Happy Spring.  According to the calendar spring has arrived.  That means that there is yard work to be done.  Please do not blow your yard debris into ditches or swales and on vacant lots.  The debris will prevent the drainage of water by causing a blockage.  We have enough problems now with drainage.  If you have a contractor maintain your lawn, it is your responsibility to assure that they do not put debris in the ditches, swales and vacant lots.  Thanks for your cooperation.


The Board of Directors and a committee of four members have been working on our pool project, with the committee of four members doing most of the work.  We have to replace the pool pump house building and thought that would be completed by opening day of the pool.  We could not get bids or start the replacement of the building because we did not receive drawings from our architect.  Now we will find another architect and do the pump house in October 2016.  We are getting bids to have the restrooms remodeled and they could be completed before the pool opens in May.


Maybe you have noticed that we have put up signs saying “NO SOLICITATION”.  These signs are hanging on the bottom of the Carolina Shores signs.  So if you have individuals coming to your door trying to sell you something or asking to do work, you can call the authorities.








April 13, 2016 – 9:30 A.M. MONTHLY BOARD 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: Do not use the office email. Be sure to include the name of the activity in the “subject” line of your email. Thank you.



ACC Corner – Joe Martere, ACC Chairperson and Peter Kirkby, POA Board Liaison


The ACC has been busy now that warm weather has arrived.  Please remember that any time you are doing any alterations that include painting or replacing of doors, shutters, roofs, or windows you will need TWO permits.  The first for the proposed work and a second permit IF the contractor wishes to place his sign on your property doing the work.  It is the home owner’s responsibility to obtain the permits; NOT the contractor.  Check with the town to see if the work you are doing needs a permit from them.  Work on the inside of your house does not need a permit from the ACC or town.


The “NO SOLICITATION” signs have been installed at all the main entrances to our community.  If you have someone knock on your door, please inform them it is against our rules.  If you find a brochure or business card in your mailbox, please inform the ACC so we can contact them.


We remind you that the members of the ACC, except the chairman, are volunteers and neighbors.  Please treat them with respect as they are doing a required and necessary job for all who live in our community.



Yard and Bake Sale – Jeanne Paff


Bake Sale Platter Carolina Shores Garden Club will hold a Yard and Bake sale to raise funds to provide scholarships to deserving West Brunswick High School seniors.  The sale will be held on Saturday, April 16, 2016, from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the POA clubhouse.  Spaces are $15 with you providing your own table.  The paid tables will be set up in the parking lot and the Garden Club’s tables and Bake Sale will be set up inside the clubhouse.  In case of rain, all tables will be set up inside the clubhouse.  Donations to either the Garden Club table or the bake table are welcome.  For additional information, call Jeanne Paff at (910) 575-8151 or Sally Nolan at (910) 880-1286.



Recreation Committee – Sue O’Reilly are being finalized for our Memorial Day Picnic on Sunday, May 29, 2016.  This popular event is always well attended and is a kick-off for the summer season in our community.  It is through the participation of our members and volunteers that this picnic has been so successful.  In order for the various activities to happen, we need a few volunteers to help out.  These include: set-up, registration, raffle ticket sales, food serving, ticket collecting, bingo, bocce, and general clean-up.  None of this requires much time or physical effort and the more volunteers we have, the less time one must spend at it.


If you wish to volunteer, please call:      Sue O’Reilly at 579-3773, Barbara Hartnett at 579-0014 or

Charlotte Csernecky at 579-9520.

Garden Club News – Jeanne Paff


Description: MCj04374590000[1]Our March meeting introduced the members to the topic of invasive species.  Michelle Cousineau, curator of the Brunswick County Botanical Garden, gave a slide show presentation highlighting plants that pose a moderate to high threat to our area.  Kudzu, which grows one foot a day, and Princess tree, which grows 15 feet a year, were definitely in the high threat area.  Mimosa and vinca were in the moderate threat area.

Carolina Shores Quilting Guild – Mary Dilettuso


MCj02911050000[1]The March meeting of the Carolina Shores Quilt Guild was held on Friday, March 11, 2016, in the POA clubhouse.  Our president, Inez Barrett, opened the meeting at 9:30 a.m.

We are getting ready for our bi-annual luncheon with the Oak Island Quilters.  We always have a challenge for our groups to make and present at the luncheon.  This year’s theme is “The Country Fair”.  Fabric squares were given to Oak Island to use and create a 10” quilting square that will be shown.  Our quilters will do the same.  We will evaluate all the squares and pick a winner.  All the quilt squares will be given back to each group and they will create their own quilt using all the squares we created.  It is a fun project for both groups to create and display.

After our regular business meeting, Lucy Timmerman, our program chairperson, went on with her project of two colored 10” squares.  Next month Lucy will teach a new pattern to quilt.  It is called “The One Block Wonder”.  Many of us are signed up for that class.  It should be fun.

If you have any interest in quilting, or would like to join us for one of our meetings, please feel free to pop in and meet us.  We have quilters that will be able to help you get started because we have all levels of skills.  We meet on the second Friday of the month and we have a workshop on the fourth Friday of the month.  We have a brown bag lunch after the meeting and enjoy each other’s company.  We would love to see you.



Needlework News – Margie Pettersen


MCj03012760000[1]The Needlework group assembled at the POA clubhouse on Monday, March 14, 2016.  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.


This month, several baby blankets were donated to be distributed to new mothers in the maternity ward at the Novant Health Brunswick Medical Center.  At our January meeting Barbara Roth, who passed away shortly thereafter, mentioned knitting 200 hats for veterans, homeless, and adults and children in need.  We will be honoring her by setting personal goals to meet this challenge.  The “Barb’s Wish” Project currently has 30 completed hats!  If you are a knitter and would like to join our project, contact Carla Urban at 910-575-2339.  She has several hat patterns and tips to share.  Our group is very small and we would love to have you join us.


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 April 11, 2016.


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



Book Discussion Group – Susie Riggs


MCj04399110000[1]The book discussion group meets 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 this month’s meeting held on March 18, we had a lively discussion of two notable books, the Pulitzer Prize winning All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr and the highly publicized The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins.  Reviews of All the Light We Cannot See were mixed, with some members praising it highly while others felt that the story was slow and somewhat tedious.  We were more in agreement in our opinions about The Girl on the Train, reaching the consensus that it was a dreary story with unlikeable characters. 

At our next meeting on April 15, we will read Jack of Spades: A Tale of Suspense by Joyce Carol Oates OR Lovely, Dark, Deep:  Stories by Joyce Carol Oates.  In months when we have two reading selections, you may read just one or both of the books.

Books that we will be reading in upcoming months are:

May - In Plain Sight, Fern Michaels OR Ladies No.1 Detective Agency, Alexander McCall Smith.

June - Women of Courage, Margaret Truman, OR biography or autobiography of choice

July - Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption, Bryan Stevenson OR Go Set a Watchman, Harper Lee

August - Inside the O’Briens by Lisa Genova



New Friends – Margie Pettersen


Joe Martere from the Carolina Shores Architectural Control Committee (ACC) was the featured speaker at the New Friends meeting on March 8, 2016.  The Architectural Control Committee reviews the plans for all houses, decks and patios and other structures to be constructed on the property to assure that the style, size, etc. is in keeping with the overall plan of the development.  It also approves applications for tree removal.  He discussed the role and importance of the ACC and answered a variety of questions. Here are a few facts we learned in answer to questions posed:

·         Fire pits are acceptable as long as they are twenty-five (25) feet from any structure and are not used to burn brush or debris.

·         Fences can be built at the rear of your property if it is at the end of the town’s border or bordering on the golf course.

·         Swales between two properties are to be maintained by the property owners adjacent to them.

·         A request for the replacement of windows needs to be made to ACC. This deals with all aspects of the exterior of your house and is mostly concerned about aesthetics consistent to the community.  You also need to get a permit from the town.

·         There is a rule against solicitation (with some first amendment exceptions).  If people come onto your property seeking work, gather their contact information and contact the ACC.

·         All signs need a permit.  Political signs are only allowed forty-five (45) days before an election and must be removed seven (7) days after the election. Signs for yard sales, advertising for a community event, real estate signs, and contractor work signs are examples of signs that require advance permission.

·         Air conditioning units that are visible from the roadways need to be covered with a privacy panel or shrubbery.

·         If there is an undeveloped lot in your neighborhood that has become an eyesore, you can request that the property owner clean it.


It was a wonderfully informative meeting!  Many thanks to Joe Martere for doing this for all of us.


At our next meeting the Fun Fatale Trio will be performing.  New Friends meets monthly on the second Tuesday of the month at 10:30 a.m. at the POA clubhouse unless otherwise announced.  Our next meeting will be April 12, 2016.  Barbara Jones will be the leader.  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 and going out to lunch afterwards.  Please remember to bring a non-perishable food item for the SBIC pantry. 



New Horizons Singles – Helen Morrison


MCj04398570000[1]Come and enjoy our finger foods and fellowship at our next meeting on April 12, 2016 at 5:00 p.m. at the POA clubhouse.  Our program will be the “Fun Fatale Trio” featuring Laura Cauble on guitar, Sandra Lefenfeld on fiddle and Bruce Lefenfeld on bass.  With its unique blending of vocal harmonies, guitar, fiddle and upright bass, the Fun Fatale Trio defies genre as it entertains audiences with its own interpretations of new and old songs with roots in a variety of traditions.  Whether it's a sweet tune from the '40s, a fresh take on a bluegrass standard, a contemporary folk song or a rousing Celtic instrumental, the trio's repertoire reflects choices intended to put a smile on the faces of those who are listening.

Men's Golf Association Activities – Kerry Jarrell


March weather was most cooperative for golf and the Carolina Shores Men's Golf Association took full advantage of the opportunities.  As course conditions improved, the number of golfers participating increased each week.  The Association's regular play day is Friday of each week. Association members also host group play on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday of each week. These groups are also open to local golfers at all skill levels.  Contact the Golf Course office for more information about these groups.

April 8 -                       Two-Man Scramble Tournament

May 13 -                      4-Club Tournament

June 17 -                      Flag Day Tournament
