Message from the Board – Al Franklin, President


As of February 6, 2016 the Carolina Shores Property Owners Association (POA) has started its new year.


I want to thank the three directors who left the board. They are Clint Finger, Joyce Dunn and Marlene Stewart. Thank you for your years of service, which was greatly appreciated.


I would like to welcome the new directors to the board:  John Csernecky, Sue Hensler and Mike Jacobson.


The POA Board met on February 8, 2016 to elect the new officers for 2016.

The new officers are as follows:

President, Al Franklin

Vice President and liaison to the ACC, Peter Kirkby

Treasurer, Kerry Jarrell

Secretary and liaison to the Advisory Committee, Diana Mardall


Committee Assignments:

Grounds, Jack Bendy

Pool/Recreation Areas, Mike Jacobson

Recreation/Social, Sue Hensler

Communications/House, John Csernecky


This year the board is looking to improve several areas such as grounds, pool area and social activities. We also welcome any suggestions from our members.


In the last week or so there has been a lot of talk throughout the community, postings on Nextdoor Carolina Shores and calling Waste Management regarding curbside trash pickup.  The information that is being distributed is NOT correct.  The POA is NOT the reason there is no curbside trash pickup by Waste Management.  The POA did NOT conduct the survey where each resident was contacted and asked to vote for or against curbside trash pickup.


I also called Waste Management and they said it was the Town of Carolina Shores that was not approving curbside pickup.  There is a difference in the Town and the POA.  So please make sure the information you get and distribute is correct.





March 9, 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 held a seminar February 2, 2016 at the POA clubhouse regarding tree care, removal, and pruning. It was attended by 38 residents. Representatives from the NC Forestry Service and Bartlett Tree Experts spoke. It was an informative session and the ACC has materials and brochures available on the topics addressed.


The ACC has welcomed a new member to our committee. He is Joe Capone and lives at 45 Carolina Shores Parkway.


Please remember that it is time to clean up our yards now that spring is coming. If you are doing any tree work, please check with the ACC to insure that any necessary permits are issued.





Description: Safety Tools for You

Everyone who lives alone should be sure of two things:


1. You will be able to call for help when you need it (even if you are injured and can’t get to your telephone). You can solve the problem of being able to call for help by purchasing a Personal Alert service, which is available from a number of providers (including ATMC). You simply wear the little alarm button around your neck or in a pocket, and when you need it, all you need to do is press.


2. Someone in your life calls your house everyday about the same time to be sure you are ok. You can now get this service from the Brunswick County Sheriff’s office. You choose the time you wish to be called and an automatic phone call will ring at your house every day at that time. If you have not answered the phone after three calls a Deputy will come and check on your wellbeing. There is no charge for this service. Just call 253-2777 and say you are interested in their “Are You OK” program.


We all know someone who lives alone. If it is you, get to work now using these tools. If it is a friend or neighbor, be kind enough to bring the subject up and help the person access these tools.



Beginning Mah Jongg – Margie Pettersen



A friendly Mah Jongg group meets regularly at the POA clubhouse every Thursday at 9:30 a.m. We welcome newcomers and are willing to help anyone willing to learn this fun and addictive game. No money involved, just play for fun!

Meeting time is 9:15 – 10:45 a.m. in the POA clubhouse.



Men's Golf Association Still Welcoming New Members – Kerry Jarrell

Although February was wet and cold, many members of the Carolina Shores Men's Golf Association (CSMGA) still found opportunities to play the game we love so well. Sometimes our numbers were small, but spirits were high on the course as well as at the clubhouse after the rounds were concluded. Carolina Shores Golf manager and amateur weatherman, Philip Bureau, assured us that spring will come soon and course conditions will improve with warmer weather. The Carolina Shores Golf and Country Club is currently providing membership programs for avid golfers as well as occasional golfers. Contact the Course to see which level of participation works best for you.


The Carolina Shores Men's Golf Association (CSMGA) invites golfers of all skill levels to consider the benefits of joining our group. For annual dues of $25, members will enjoy weekly group play, participation in eight tournaments throughout the year, an annual holiday party, participation in an annual Ryder Cup competition with another local golf club, participation in our charity activities benefitting local families in need, as well as other opportunities for play throughout the year. 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.

Garden Club News – Jeanne Paff


Description: MCj04374590000[1]Our February meeting was all about Turtles! Carmel Zetts, coordinator of the Sunset Beach Turtle Watch program, has worked since the 1990's with a devoted group of volunteers to ensure that as many of the nests are able to produce viable hatchlings, usually in August. A 30-minute video showed the process of building the nest with her rear flippers, laying over 100 eggs and returning to the ocean. Only a very few hatchlings survive the arduous trek.

Upcoming events:




Carolina Shores Quilting Guild – Nancy Sneska

The library book “Simply Stunning Woven Quilts” written by Anna Faustino has not been recovered. Quilters, please look among your collections to see if you might have it.


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 charity is the Ronald McDonald house in Raleigh-Durham where we send numerous quilts each year.



Needlework News – Margie Pettersen


MCj03012760000[1]The Needlework group assembled at the POA clubhouse on Monday, February 8, 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 March 7, 2016.

We give our sincere thanks to Hal Roth for donating over 100 skeins of yarn to the Needlework group. His wife, Barbara, who passed away recently, was a prolific knitter and no one contributed more to our charitable efforts than she did. At the January meeting Barbara mentioned knitting 200 hats for veterans, homeless, adults and children in need. We will be honoring her by setting personal goals to meet this challenge.

*Please enter through the POA office to access the board room.



New Horizons Singles – June Wilkinson

We will gather around 5:00 p.m. Call Pat Ferstler at 579-1980 for information. She will be coordinating this event for us. We hope all members and other interested people come out and join us.

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.

Next month our meeting will be on March 8, 2016. Joe Martere from the Carolina Shores Architectural Control Committee (ACC) will be the featured speaker. The Architectural Control Committee reviews the plans for all houses, decks, 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 will discuss the role and importance of the ACC and be available to answer questions.
