Message from the Board – Al Franklin, President


Our quarterly meeting is scheduled for Monday, May 2, 2016, at 7:00 p.m. at the POA clubhouse.


This is the time of the year when the yards start growing.  Please mow your lawn and trim bushes so we do not have overgrown yards.  If you notice lawns that have not been cut, please notify the POA office so we can contact the owner.  Some of our properties do not have fulltime residents and the owner may not be aware that the lawn needs cutting and/or the bushes need trimming.


Work at the pool is progressing.  The remodeling of the bathrooms is almost complete.  Drains are being installed to direct the rain water away from the pool area.  When the decking in the children’s pool area was removed to be repaired, the damage was worse than we thought.  The roots from plants had damaged more of the decking and more decking had to be removed. The decking around the main pool also needs some work.  The decking needs sealing to prevent the pavers from moving.  Half of the decking will be sealed next week.  This sealing had not been done in over two years.  It needs to be sealed each year so the pavers will stay in place.  All of this work will be completed by opening day of the pool.  The POA board will be looking at some type of screening along the fence of the pool.  


Also, we have to hire another architect in order to submit plans to the Town for approval.  We hope that the complete plan will be approved.  The plan will include some other facilities at the pool and recreation area.


Members of the Recreation committee are:  Chairperson Mary Ann Williams, Secretary Sue O’Reilly, Barbara Hartnett, Charlotte Csernecky, Greta Meyers, Joyce Disano, Arlene Limpert, Betty Robertson, and JoAnne Bendy.

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 Board of Directors have approved guidelines on how to screen your A/C units and Propane tanks and what to use.  A blast e-mail will be sent to all property owners whose bulletin arrives via e-mail.  If you have any questions regarding this issue, please contact me, Joe Martere, at that the POA office.


Remember it is always better to check with the ACC BEFORE doing anything on the outside of your home or doing any tree work.


The ACC tries to do our inspections on Tuesday and Thursday mornings.  If you put in a request, please indicate if you cannot be at home during those times and we will make other arrangements with you.


An ongoing problem has affected certain trees in our community, specifically the Red Bay and Sassafras.  This is caused by Laurel Wilt disease.  If you apply for a permit to take down any trees affected by this, you will need to follow a specific disposal method.  Please contact the ACC for this information.  Also, a copy of the requirements along with a picture of an affected tree is posted on the bulletin boards at the POA clubhouse and office.

Tennis News – Bob Anthony


MCj00906290000[1]The weather is warming up and so is the tennis.  No more cold-weather excuses for not getting exercise and getting into "bathing suit" shape.  Join your friends and neighbors as they shape up while playing with the open tennis group every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.  Starting time is 9:00 a.m. for now, but will change to 8:30 a.m. on Memorial Day, May 30, 2016, for the summer months.

Men's Golf Association Activities – Kerry Jarrell


On April 8, 2016 the Carolina Shores Men's Golf Association held its first tournament of the year.  In a two-man scramble format, the team of George Bridges and Bob Fyock took first place.  In second place was Phil Andersen and Bob Bosman.  A team of Joes, Joe Broderick and Joe Gallo, took third, and John Dougherty and Gary Hertling came in fourth.


The next tournament will be on May 13, 2016.  The format will be a bit unusual.  Each player will be limited to only four golf clubs.  A signup sheet is posted in the clubhouse.  In the upcoming months the Association will host the following tournaments for members:


May 13                           4-Club Tournament

June 17                           Flag Day Tournament

July 15 and 22, 2016      President's Cup


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



Recreation Committee – Sue O’Reilly Memorial Day Picnic is on Sunday, May 29, 2016, from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. at the POA picnic grounds.  This popular event is always well attended and is a kick-off for the summer season in our community.  It will be catered by Jerome’s of Shallotte.  The menu consists of:  pulled pork, chicken, baked beans, cole slaw, rolls, iced tea, water and dessert.  Bring any other beverage you choose.  Food will be served from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m.


All residents must obtain tickets at the POA office between May 2 and May 19, 2016.  No one will be admitted without a ticket.  All guests of residents will be charged $7.00 per person and must have a ticket.  Children four (4) years old and younger are free.


There will be a raffle, Bocce, 9-hole Scramble, Put Put, and Bingo.  Music will be provided by Lisa Snow.


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.

Carolina Shores Quilting Guild – Mary Dilettuso


MCj02911050000[1]The Carolina Shores Quilters’ Guild met and discussed plans for their May 13, 2016 luncheon hosting the Oak Island Quilters.  A theme of ‘Country Fair’ was established and some games will accompany a fried chicken and pulled pork lunch.  Those members not signed up for the pot luck need to do so by calling Paula Delahunty.  All members are asked to help at the luncheon, as many guests are expected.

Members are asked to consider being an officer on the board.  A nominating committee will be calling in hopes of a positive answer.

Lucy Timmerman led the workshop with “One Block Wonder” using a 60-degree triangle template.  When the fabric was cut in a certain manner, it created a beautiful kaleidoscope.  Those participating continued the project at home, which was completed on April 22.

If you have an interest in quilting or would like to join us at one of our meetings, please feel free to pop in and meet us.  We have quilters who will be able to help you get started, as we have all levels of skills.  Our meetings are on the second and fourth Fridays of each month.  We share a brown bag lunch and would enjoy meeting you.



Needlework News – Margie Pettersen


MCj03012760000[1]The Needlework group met at the POA clubhouse on Monday, April 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 table chatting and working.


This month we worked on the hats that we are knitting for the "Barb's Wish" project.  We now have 61 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.


Please consider donating yarn to our group so that we may continue to support our charitable efforts.  Any yarn weight or color is appreciated.


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 May 9, 2016 at 10 a.m. at the POA clubhouse.



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 April 15, we discussed Jack of Spades: A Tale of Suspense and Lovely, Dark, Deep: Stories, both by Joyce Carol OatesMs. Oates’ works sparked a lively discussion among the group, due to the diversity of opinions expressed about the books.

At our next meeting on May 20, 2016 we will read In Plain Sight by Fern Michaels OR Ladies No. 1 Detective Agency by Alexander McCall Smith.  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:

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

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

August - Inside the O’Briens by Lisa Genova



New Friends – Maslin Kain


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 May 10, 2016.  Sharon Donahue will be the leader.  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.


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 – Carla Urban


MCj04398570000[1]Fourteen of our members were entertained on April 12, 2016 by the "Fun Fatale Trio".  This trio is made up of a guitar player, a bass player and fiddle player.  We enjoyed almost an hour of their great songs in two-part harmony as well as their instrumentals.  They played a mixture of folk songs, blue grass, swing and contemporary.  Every one of us was delighted with the program.  They really put a smile on our faces.  Along with their performance, we all enjoyed a dinner made up with dishes each member brought to share.


Our annual picnic will be held at the next meeting on May 10, 2016.  Weather permitting, we will meet at the picnic area by the tennis courts at 4:00 p.m.  If it is inclement weather, we will meet at the POA clubhouse at 4:00 p.m.  Either way, we will have roast chicken and the usual picnic side dishes brought by the individual members. 


This group is open to all single senior ladies in the community and all are encouraged to come and check us out.  We meet on the second Tuesday of the month at 5:00 p.m. in the POA clubhouse.

Care Team – Flo Pflaster Carolina Shores Care Team is a group that residents, with a temporary need for some 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 now have 17 volunteers on the team thanks to those of you who joined recently.  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 or Debbie Gonzalez at 575-6624.  Debbie will be taking all calls for help from April 9 to May 6, 2016.  We will do the best we can to find someone to help you out.
