Message from the BoardAl Franklin, President




Hope you have noticed the new sign at Gate 2 indicating you are entering the community of Carolina Shores.  We will be planting flowers there this spring.


I have noticed several of our residents and lawn maintenance companies blowing leaves and debris onto vacant lots and into the drainage ditches.  The blockage in the drainage ditches can cause flooding like we had in October of 2015.  So please do not put leaves and debris on another property or in ditches.


By this time, you should have received your annual dues invoice, which is due upon receipt.  If not paid by February 29, 2016, you will be assessed a late fee of $25 on March 1, 2016.  If you are having trouble paying this fee at this time, you should call the POA office at 910-579-2044 to set up a payment plan and this will avoid a late fee.  Please do not ignore this as it is better to deal with payment issues now rather than later in the year.

Whether you are new to Carolina Shores, a part-timer, or even an old-timer looking for an enjoyable day on the links, consider the benefits of being part of a great group of guys who really enjoy each other and the great game of golf. Contact Kerry Jarrell, 575-2103, for information.





Renegade NewsGeri McTighe


MCj02856980000[1]Chairpersons for weekly play in February are Donna Watkins and Karen Hertling.  Please refer to the Weekly Results emails or check the signup sheets for tee times.


The Renegades Ladies Away trip is scheduled for June 6, 7 and 8, 2016 at Bluffton, South Carolina.  Linda Mullins and Debbie Creamer, who will host the tournament this year, will post updates on the bulletin board as they develop.  Save the dates!


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


Although El Nino's effect on the weather has at times been trying, our open tennis just keeps on plugging along.  It will be even more pleasant thanks to the POA Board's actions, particularly Clint Finger's, to have our rusty fence replaced with a green coated new fence and wind screen. 


Remember open tennis is available to all POA members in good standing and their guests.  Open tennis occurs every Monday, Wednesday and Friday beginning at 9:00 a.m.  Come on out and have some fun shedding those extra holiday pounds we all packed on.  See you out there.



Recreation CommitteeSue O’Reilly


Our recreation committee met in January to plan activities for the coming 2016 year.  In addition to our two main events, the Memorial Day picnic and the Holiday Party, preliminary discussion focused on possibly re-instituting the Labor Day picnic, as well as doing regular Bingo, music Bingo and Trivia socials.  Since all these fun get-togethers require pre-planning, implementation and participation, it is important to get a cadre of enthusiastic, energetic and eager volunteers who will help round out our present members.


Not everyone can always be present for all the planned activities, but if we have a group of willing volunteers, it will make it easier to carry out what is needed to be done for each activity.   Below are the names of the present members.  If you are thinking about helping our community as part of this committee, please call one of us with your questions or further information.

Carolina Shores Quilting Guild Mary Dilettuso


MCj02911050000[1]Our regular monthly meeting was held with eighteen members in attendance.  The program of instructional and group participation in scrap quilting was led by Lucy Timmerman.  Lucy gave members fabric scraps for hand samples and for machine.  On January 22, 2016 she continued with the final stages of the program where she demonstrated how decorative embroidery stitches can enhance the beauty of the piece.

The Oak Island luncheon challenge and favors were discussed and voted on.  The theme will be “Come to the Fair” and at least two pieces of fabric will be included in the challenge kit.  More discussion will follow at committee meetings.  Sylvia Graham will create a colorful invitation to be mailed to the guests.

Sylvia printed copies of “blocks of the month” for members.  If you were not in attendance, please be sure to ask her for them.

ATTENTION QUILTERS:  We are still searching for a hard cover book entitled “Simply Stunning Woven Quilts” written by Anna Faustino.  This book was purchased at ‘Meet the Quilters’ last year, but was then borrowed by a member.  To date, no one has claimed having it.  Please search your quilting areas to see if it might be in with your belongings.  Please return it at the next meeting.

The Horry County Museum Guilt Gala will be on February 26-27, 2016 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Ocean Lakes Campground.  This gala always has a beautiful display of quilts to enjoy and vote on.  It’s a fun day to carpool with friends and to share your interest.

The guild meets the second and fourth Fridays of each month at the POA clubhouse at 9:30 a.m.  It is open to anyone interested in sewing.  We consist of talents of all measures and are willing to mentor a beginner.  Come as a guest to see what we have to offer.  Our main objective is making quilts for the Ronald McDonald house in Raleigh-Durham. 




Garden Club NewsJeanne Paff


MCj04374590000[1]Our January meeting began with an informative talk about tea, given by Sherri French, owner of the Southport Tea House.  Sherri explained the need to use either bottled or filtered water to produce the best results, and to carefully monitor the time spent in steeping your cup.  While most of us were familiar with black teas, Lipton, Earl Grey, etc., she suggested that we try green tea for its cleansing purposes, or white tea for its detoxifying effects.  We all enjoyed the tasty, bite-size sandwiches and sweets totally prepared in-house by Sherri and her assistant.  She invited us to visit her at Southport Tea House for a 10% discount.


The next meeting will be held at the POA clubhouse on Wednesday, February 3, 2016.  (Please note that this is one week earlier from our regular meeting day.)  Ellen Pecina, our program chair, has invited Carmel Zetts, coordinator of the Sunset Beach Turtle Watch program, to speak about the mission of the program and provide us with facts about the endangered loggerhead turtles.




Needlework NewsMargie Pettersen


MCj03012760000[1]The Needlework group assembled at the POA clubhouse on Monday, January 11, 2016.  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.


Members donated numerous items to the Brunswick Community Center:  sweaters, blankets, hats, and scarves.  All items are then distributed to adults and children in need.  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 February 8, 2016.


We mourn the recent passing of our good friend, Barbara Roth, who was an integral part of our group.  No one contributed more to our charitable efforts than she did.  She will be missed.


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

Book Discussion GroupMargie Pettersen


MCj04399110000[1]On January 20, 2015 members met and discussed two wonderful books that were infused with history from the early 20th century:  Circling the Sun: A Novel, Paula McLain and One Summer, America 1927, Bill Bryson.  The first book is a fictionalized account of the remarkable Beryl Markham, a girl who grew up in Africa, worked as a renowned horse trainer and was the first female pilot to cross the Atlantic from east to west.  Readers of Bill Bryson’s nonfiction book were reminded of many important people and events that occurred in 1927.  Stories about Babe Ruth, Charles Lindbergh, Al Capone, Al Jolson’s The Jazz Singer, Henry Ford, and many more were told by Bryson with his unique blend of wit and humor.  What fun we had discussing these two gems.  We also celebrated the New Year with our annual potluck luncheon.


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.


We will not be meeting in February since many members are going to attend an author talk in North Myrtle Beach.  Susan Meissner will be speaking at the Surf Club about her latest book, Stars over Sunset Boulevard.  At our next meeting, March 18, 2016, we will discuss two books: All the Light We Cannot See, Anthony Doerr and The Girl on the Train, Paula Hawkins.  For those who are new to the group, in months when we have two reading selections, you do not have to read both books.


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


April -Jack of Spades: A Tale of Suspense, Joyce Carol Oates OR Lovely, Dark, Deep: Stories, Joyce Carol Oates

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 FriendsMargie Pettersen


The January 12, 2015 meeting of New Friends was led by Maslin Kain.  Tony Wagner, one of the leads of the website, NextDoor, spoke to the group about the benefits of being linked to this neighborhood sharing website.  Many examples were given of how the sharing has strengthened the community.  Afterwards, he gave a brief demonstration of how the site worked to those who were unfamiliar with it.


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!


The next meeting, February 9, will be led by Jean Mann.



New Horizons SinglesJune Wilkinson


MCj04398570000[1]Our January meeting was enjoyed by all.  The ladies enjoyed the conversation, fellowship and good food. We enjoyed the company of the nine people who attended. 


Our February meeting will be on the 9th.  Helen Morrison has a planned activity for us.  There is always plenty of good food and good fellowship.  Our March meeting is the St Patrick's day dinner at the VFW.  Our April meeting is planned. For our May meeting we have a chicken picnic.  It is all our hope that some of the single people come out to meet us.  We are a friendly group who do things together other than the scheduled meetings.  We would welcome anyone who would come out to our meeting.
