Message from the Board – Al Franklin, President


The POA Board of Directors approved the first stage of the landscaping along the fence at the pool.  I know many of the members want to know when the work will start.  Well, the board thought it was going to be this past week, but it did not

happen because the contractor had a death in his family and had to go out of town for a week.


Please be cooperative with our pool attendants when they asked you to sign the log when you enter the pool. Thanks for your help.


We still are missing tables from the POA building.  We will be reviewing the video tapes to see who took the tables and forgot to bring them back.


I have heard that a lot of our residents have been on the Carolina Shores golf course walking their dogs, taking a walk, etc.  When the residents were asked not to be on the course while players were playing, they used foul language when speaking to golf course employees.  Such language is uncalled for in any situation. Some of the residents told the golf course employees that the course belongs to the POA and since they were members of the POA they could be on the course. The, POA DOES NOT own the Carolina Shores golf course and never has.  The course is separate from the POA and is privately owned.  The residents should not be on the course unless they are playing golf and have checked in at the clubhouse.  When you step onto the golf course and have not checked into the clubhouse you are trespassing and can be arrested.  Also you could be injured if you are hit by a golf ball or fall while walking or riding a bike.  If you are injured while on the course you have no recourse because you are trespassing.  So please let’s be good neighbors and stop trespassing and using bad language.


We have had two robberies this month.  Please be watchful and let a friend know when you will be away so they can check on your house.


Have a safe July 4, 2016 and enjoy whatever you have planned.

A day in the yard comes to Hickman Library Joanne Bendy

 The Master Gardener Volunteer Association of Brunswick County will soon offer a unique horticulture class for Brunswick County and Horry County residents.  The class provides the basic knowledge needed to maintain a yard/garden in the coastal plain of the Carolinas.

 The cost of the class is $75.00.  The proceeds from the class go to the Brunswick County Master Gardener Volunteer Association (  The class includes six 2.5-hour segments. Each individual class is taught by a Master Gardener utilizing PowerPoint presentations. 


This course is being offered at Hickman Library1040 Calabash Road, NW, Calabash, NC  28467 starting in September on Wednesday's from 9:30 a.m.-12:00 Noon.  Classes will meet September 14, 21, 28 and October 5, 12, and 19.

The topics for the 6 segments are:

Soil & Fertilization

Lawns & Irrigation

      Woody Ornamentals & Pruning

  Annuals, Bulbs, & Perennials

    Insects & Diseases

 Vegetable Gardening

Annual Ladies Away Tournament

The threat of a possible rain-out due to Tropical Storm Colin did not dampen the spirits of the 18 Renegades who traveled to Bluffton, South Carolina for the Renegades Annual Ladies Away Tournament.  Golf on Monday, June 7, was canceled because of the weather; however, Bluffton provided many diversions to keep the gals busy.  On Tuesday and Wednesday, June 8 and 9, a Modified Stableford was played at Pine Crest Golf Club and Eagle's Point Golf Club.  Congratulations to the winners of the tournament:  1st Place, Violet Collins with a score of 33; 2nd Place, Karen Hertling, 32; 3rd Place, Julie Farrel 32.  Many thanks and kudos to Linda Mullins and Debbie Creamer who organized the 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 golf league, contact Kathy Harniman at 575-1120 or Phillip Bureau at the golf course for more details.  New members are always welcome.

MCj00906290000[1]Come out and join your friends and neighbors on the Carolina Shores tennis courts.  There is open tennis at our courts every Monday, Wednesday and Friday starting at 8:30 a.m.  Open tennis is available to all POA members in good standing and their guests.  Hope to see you out there.




Men's Golf Association Activities – Kerry Jarrell


On June 10, the Carolina Shores Men's Golf Association held its third tournament of the year. The Flag Day Tournament is always one of the most unique and enjoyable tournaments. Twenty-two golfers were each presented with a miniature American flag.  The flag was labeled with that player's name taped to the flagstick.  Each player's handicap was added to 72 to determine the total strokes each was allowed to take for the day. (So, a player with a handicap of 30 would be allowed 102 strokes for the day.)  Once that number of strokes was taken, the player would stick his flag in the ground and return to the clubhouse.  The player whose flag was planted farthest on the course would win.  Five players made it to the 20th hole before using all of their strokes.  The winner was Vince Hammerl, followed by Bill Marsh, Jim Ratcliff, Phil Andersen, and Larry Edwards.  Six players made it to the 19th hole.  They were in order, Ed Dupuis, Leo Jarmusz, Jim Rogers, Nick DePalo, Wayne Burchfield, and Lynn Harbold. Congratulations guys.


The next tournament will be the President's Cup, to be played on consecutive Fridays, July 15 and July 22.

 The format will be individual low­net.  This fall the Carolina Shores Men's Golf Association is planning a Ryder cup tournament against the team from The Valley Golf Club.  Our group has won the last two Ryder Cup matches, and we hope to make a strong showing again this year.


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, 575­2103, 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 Course to see which level of participation works best for you.




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 new members.  If you love to read and discuss books, we would love to have you join us. You don’t have to commit to reading all of the books to be part of the group.  In months when we have two reading selections, you may read just one, or both of the books.


At this month’s meeting on June 17, we discussed Women of Courage by Margaret Truman, which was highly recommended by everyone who read it.  Our book selections for the July 15 meeting are Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption by Bryan Stevenson OR Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee.


In August, we will read Inside the O’Briens by Lisa Genova.  At the August meeting we will also be choosing our book selections for next year.  Each member will submit one title for the list.



Bible Study – Wendy Wagner Townsend


Description: 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. We may be expanding into other time frames, depending on interest.  Please call Fr. Townsend with any questions or suggestions for starting a new group.  All are welcome. 843-467-4979.




Needlework News – Flo Pflaster


The Needlework group met at the POA clubhouse on Monday, June 13, 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 board room 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 120 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 July 11, 2016 at 10:00 a.m. at the POA clubhouse in the boardroom.



New Horizons Singles – Carla Urban


Our meeting at the POA on June 14 was the last for the group until we will be getting together again on September 13.  After we had our dinner of dishes brought in by the members, Nancy Bates told us a very interesting story of her mother's struggle and perseverance in becoming a very accomplished and fulfilled lady in the field of medicine as well as her entire life.  Nancy's relating of her mother's challenges was told with great detail and it led to a nice discussion afterward. Thank you Nancy, you were great.


Our next meeting will be on September 14, at 5p.m. at the POA Clubhouse.  We need all of the members to spend a little time during this summer to come up with some ideas for meetings that you would like us to cover for the fall season. So write them down whenever they come to mind.


The September meeting will be "Off to The Races Again", so remember to get your fanciest chapeau ready along with some change for this event. Pat Ferstler has volunteered to handle the hot dogs for the evening but feel free to bring whatever side dish or dessert you feel appropriate.


If you meet a new single lady from Carolina Shore bring her along to join in the evening of fun and food.


Hope to see you all in September.
