Message from the Board – Al Franklin, President


Wow, August is upon us.  Where has the summer gone?  We still have about eight more weeks of summer, so get out and enjoy the time.  Please be careful during these hot days.  There have been several individuals who have had heat stroke within the last several weeks.  Take it easy in whatever you do and drink plenty of water and juices.


If you plan on being at the pool, please follow the rules and procedures that are in place.  Remember to sign in on the log book and cooperate with pool attendant.  Also, no alcoholic drinks are allowed in the pool area.  Beer cans were found in the trash cans in the pool area after adult night.  Our insurance policy does not allow alcoholic beverages in the pool area and our insurance policy will be canceled if alcohol is being used there.  If the insurance is canceled, then the pool would have to be closed.  


Please remember that no one under eighteen is allowed in the POA clubhouse without the supervision of an adult.


The work on the landscaping at the pool was to have been started by now, but due to problems beyond our control (getting supplies and rain), it has been delayed.  We are planning to get started this week.  I appreciate your understanding.


Even though the individuals who have been breaking into homes in our community have been caught, you still should be aware of activity in your neighbor and report anything unusual.


If you are aware of any vacant homes where the grass needs to be cut or the yard is overgrown, please let the ACC know about it.

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


The ACC has added a new member, Bob Hartman, of 36 Calabash Drive to our committee.


The ACC does its inspections on Tuesday and Thursday mornings.  We will do inspections and approvals on other days if an emergency exists or someone cannot be home at those times.  We call all prospective requests the day before to ensure that someone can be there.


Please remember to apply for and receive a permit from the ACC if you are planning on holding a yard/garage sale.  These permits are free, but we need to know where and when they will be placed.


A reminder that the ACC members, other than myself, are volunteers doing a required and necessary service for all members of our community.  Please treat them with the same respect that you would like to have if you were in their shoes.


If you have any questions on what requires a permit, please call the ACC at the POA office and ask.  Remember any and all tree removal and work to be done on the outside of your home, with the exception of general landscaping, requires approval before the work is started.


Lastly, be sure to let you contractor know that work hours are 7:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday only. No work is to be done on Sunday unless being done by the homeowners themselves.  If a contractor wants to place a sign on your property while work is being done, please come and receive a permit from the office. The sign MUST be removed when the work is completed.



Help Wanted Mike Jacobson


Looking for a part time pool attendant.  Application can be found online at in Procedures and Forms or can be picked up at the POA office Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon.

Men's Golf Association Activities – Kerry Jarrell


On July 15 and 22 the Carolina Shores Men's Golf Association held its President's Cup Tournament. The President's Cup determines the Association's champion golfer of the year.  Twenty-two golfers participated in this event, which was held on consecutive Fridays.  For the first day of the Tournament the format was individual low-net.  After day one, golfers were flighted into three flights.  On the second day the format was individual low net within each flight.  The winner of the A flight and overall winner of the President's Cup was Mike Donahue who shot a sizzling 122 for the two days. Mike's name will be entered on the President's Cup trophy which will be on display in the Carolina Shores Golf clubhouse.  Mike was followed by another Mike, Mike Fedak, who shot 128.  Other winners in the A flight were Dick Boyle and Larry Edwards.  In the B flight the winners were, in order, Bob Fyock, Jim Ratcliff, George Bridges, and Jim Burke.  In the C flight the winners were Ed Dupuis, Chuck Karnolt, Abe Glover, and Jim Rogers.  Congratulations, guys.


In the upcoming months Association members will be participating in the Carolina Shores Golf and Country Club Championship, the Ryder Cup Tournament against the team from The Valley Golf Club and the annual Turkey Shoot the week before Thanksgiving.  The Association hosts regular league play every Friday.  A signup sheet is posted at the golf clubhouse.


The Association invites golfers of all skill levels to consider the benefits of joining our group. Membership in the CSMGA is open to residents of the Town of Carolina Shores over 18 years of age and to any members of the Carolina Shores Golf and Country Club.  Contact Kerry Jarrell at 575-2103 for information.  The Carolina Shores Golf and Country Club is still providing very affordable membership programs for avid golfers as well as occasional golfers.  Contact the golf club to see which level of participation works best for you.



Garden Club News –  Jane Boyle


Description: MCj04374590000[1]Mark your calendars for the first meeting of the Carolina Shores Garden Club on Wednesday, September 14, 2016 at 1:00 p.m. in the POA clubhouse.


We are excited to begin a new year, and think you’ll enjoy what our new Programs committee has planned for us.


We are looking for new members, so please encourage your friends and neighbors to come to our September meeting to see what programs and activities we have planned for the year.


Look for further details in the September bulletin.



Book Discussion Group – Susie Riggs


MCj04399110000[1]The Book Discussion Group’s selections for July were Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee and Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption by Brian Stevenson.  Most of the members were disappointed in Go Set a Watchman, as we felt it was pieced together, had poor style and was not well-written. However, we did feel that it succeeded in presenting race relations in a way that could not have been discussed at the time To Kill a Mockingbird was written.  Our other selection, Just Mercy, a heartbreaking nonfiction book dealing with criminal justice in the Deep South, made for a very lively and lengthy discussion among the group!

Our book selection for August is Inside the O’Briens by Lisa Genova.   At that meeting we will also be choosing the books to be read for the 2016-2017 year.  Each member may submit one title to be included on the list.  Any member who cannot be present in August may send their selection to Pat McKay before the meeting. 

If you love to read and enjoy discussing books, you are welcome to join our group.  We meet at the POA clubhouse at 10:00 a.m. on the third Friday of each month.



Bible Study – Wendy Wagner Townsend


Description: study, Wednesdays at 9:15 a.m., POA clubhouse


Watch for new time this fall.  Evening study group starting.  Time and date to be announced.  Please let us know your input for starting this group.  Our group is growing and so are the topics of discussion. Topics are always open, covering interests of the group.  Several religious denominations are present in this existing study group.  Fr. Louis Townsend from St. Barnabas Anglican Church leads the group.  Please call Fr. Townsend at 843-467-4979 with any questions or suggestions for a starting time for a new group.



Needlework News – Flo Pflaster


MCj03012760000[1]The Needlework group met at the POA clubhouse on Monday, July 11, 2016.  This group meets in the POA clubhouse on the second Monday of each month at 10:00 a.m. to knit or crochet.  We have no dues or officers and you will find us around the boardroom table chatting and working.


We continue to knit hats for the "Barb's Wish" project.  This is in memory of Barbara Roth who had started this project before she passed away in January.  The hats will go to veterans and others in need.  We now have over 150 hats completed of the 200 total we are aiming for.  If you are a knitter and would like to join this project, contact Carla Urban at 910-575-2339.  She has a very simple-to-follow pattern and tips to share.  Our group is very small and we would really like to have you join us.  We also work on our own personal projects.


Please consider donating yarn so that we may continue to support our charitable efforts.  Any yarn weight or color is appreciated.  Thanks to so many who have already given yarn to our group!


If you are new to the community and like to work with your hands, this group is 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 August 8, 2016 at 10:00 a.m. at the POA clubhouse in the boardroom.

Care Team – Flo Pflaster Carolina Shores Care Team is a group that residents with a temporary need for some short term help can contact.  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.


We have eighteen (18) volunteers on the team ready and willing to help when called on.  Just to make it clear, Flo Pflaster coordinates communication with the Team through the website.  If you are a volunteer, that is the way you will get a request to help a resident in need.


However, if you are someone who wants help, you just have to contact Flo Pflaster at 575-6243 or  I will do my best to find someone to help you out.
