Message from the Board – Al Franklin, President


Some of you already know that Mike Jacobson, a member of the POA Board of Directors, passed away on Friday, October 21, 2016. When the POA needed someone to fill a position on the Board, Mike volunteered.  He did a good job overseeing the pool and recreation area. He will be missed.


The last couple of weeks have been busy in the community cleaning up after Matthew. We had a lot of tree damage and I hope that any damage to our homes was minor. The POA recreation area had some trees down and a section of the tennis court fence was damaged and will need to be replaced. We also have a few trees around the POA building that need to be taken down.


I hear some individuals complaining about the piles of debris in the community that have not been picked up by the Town. This is in process and takes time to complete. It cannot be completed in a few days. We have about one thousand homes in our community and it takes time. So, just be patient and it will be completed.


As you know, we canceled the October Board meeting due to the storm. The November Board meeting will be on November 9, 2016 at 9:30 a.m.  Also, on November 14, 2016 at 7:00 p.m., we will have a quarterly meeting at the POA building. This will be a meeting to present the budget and the time to discuss any subject that you want.


Have a good Thanksgiving!

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 reminds all owners that in the wake of storm Matthew, any trees damaged by the STORM can be addressed and no permit from the ACC is required. Any additional trees that you may feel need to be removed to reduce potential storm damages NEED PRIOR ACC APPROVAL. Please be fair to our community and the ACC by not lumping additional trees in your clean up activity.


Reminder to those with political signs, they must be removed within 7 Days after the election. In this case, November 15, 2016 is the final removal date.


Thank you for your cooperation in making our job more rewarding.

Ladybirds Tournaments


Carolina Shores Golf and Country Club hosted "The Cup" Tournament on Monday, October 3, which concludes the Ladybirds events for the year.  Seventy-two (72) players from nine (9) golf clubs participated.  Team Renegades, represented by eight players, placed second!!  Congratulations to Donna Watkins, Jirina Toussaint, Debbie Creamer, Linda Mullins, Sharon Clark, Lin Penta, Karen Hertling and Peggy Lewis.  Great job ladies!!


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.



Men's Golf Association Activities – Kerry Jarrell

On October 4th and 12th, the Carolina Shores Men's Golf Association (CMGA) held its annual Ryder Cup competition against the men from the Valley Golf Course at Eastport.   Twenty-four golfers participated from each of the two clubs.  On the 4th, the teams played at the Valley Golf Course using a modified individual low-net format. On the 12th, play was held at Carolina Shores using alternate shots for the first nine and best ball on the second nine.  The CSMGA has won the event for the past two years.


However, 2016 was just not our year.  On October 4th, the men from the Valley took a commanding lead by winning 8 of 12 matches.  The following week the CSGMA team won 6 of 12 matches, but the final point total was 13¾ for Valley and 10¼ for CSMGA.  The two teams enjoyed a nice lunch together after the second day and each team boldly announced their intention to win next year.  Thanks go to Mike Donahue, Vince Hammerl, and Jim Burke for managing the tournament activities so well.


In November, the annual Turkey Shoot will be held the week before Thanksgiving.  Any golfers considering joining our Association are encouraged to join us for the Turkey Shoot. It's cheap, it’s fun, and you may walk away with a free turkey for 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, 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.



Tennis News – Bob Anthony


MCj00906290000[1]Let's hope we have seen the last of storms like Matthew.  Although cleanup is continuing after the storm, there is still room for taking a break from this tedious effort to havea little fun on the tennis courts.  The courts themselves came through the storm relatively unscathed; however, there is some work that must be done to the fencing around the courts.


Your friends and neighbors are still participating in open tennis every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.  These sessions begin at 9:00 a.m. and last for approximately 2 hours.  Hope to see you out there.



Walking Group News – Eileen Nawara

Dolores Sanborn took charge of hospitality for this month.  Many thanks to her and the ladies who brought in delicious desserts for us to enjoy.

Needlework News – Carla Urban


Four ladies from the group presented the hats to the American Legion on Oct 11 at 10:30 a.m. We then were invited by the Legion to stay as their guests for lunch. Unfortunately, when I gave the names of the three other members of the group who were not able to be with us, their names were not included in the newspaper article. For this I am very sorry ladies. Also, the photo which she took was very dark and not very clear. 


The ladies who contributed to Barb's Wish were: Eileen Nawara, Gloria Gustavson, Marie Zaranski, Carla Urban, Bev Rowse, Flo Pflaster and Loretta Ebanks. We reached our goal of 200 hats plus a few more. Thank you, ladies, for all the effort you put into this project. I know that the Legion, as well as myself, was very pleased with our effort on Barb's behalf.  Hal Roth was also presented an additional hat to commemorate our salute to Barb. The hats will be put to very good use either at the Veterans Homes or for homeless veterans.
