Message from the Board – Al Franklin, President


With the warm weather, the snakes are out and about.  We have had two reports of copperhead snakes being killed. Keep your eyes open when walking or working in the yard.


We also had another report of a coyote sighting and the person who saw the coyote said that the coyote had a little white dog in its mouth.  Keep an eye on your pets!


I have heard that there are still problems with speeding on Persimmon Road and Country Club road.  I contacted the Town administrator about the speeding several months ago, and he said that he would talk to the Sheriff’s Office.  About two months later, I was coming down Country Club Road about 9:30 p.m. and there was a sheriff’s patrol car sitting at the entrance of the golf course on Country Club Road.  He was running radar, even though there isn’t a lot of traffic at 9:30 p.m.  In the last couple of weeks, there have been individuals stopped for not coming to a full stop at the stop sign in front of the golf course club house.  I will check this week with the Sheriff’s Department and see if they will monitor these two roads at busier times during the day.  Maybe some of the residents can call the Sheriff’s Office also and make requests for a greater presence from the Sheriff’s office.  Maybe it will help.


Also, in about three months, the POA will have a shredder truck at the POA office for the community to use for one day. So, keep this in mind. The POA will send out an e-mail to notify you of the date and time.

ACC Corner – Joe Martere, ACC Chairperson, and Peter Kirkby, POA Board Liaison


The ACC would like to remind all residents that now that winter is ending, it is time to clean up our properties.  Raking and removing the accumulated winter debris, inspecting our trees for any damage, and cleaning off roofs and gutters of pine straw and leaves are all necessary at this time of year.  This is also the time for cutting back and pruning your shrubbery.


The ACC reminds all residents to apply for and receive the proper permits for tree removals, outside alterations or additions (this includes sheds), and before putting up any signs.


All forms are available on line and at the POA office.  If you have any questions please contact me at the office on Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday mornings between the hours of 9:00 am and 12:00 noon.


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

Men's Golf Association Activities - Kerry Jarrell Carolina Shores Men's Golf Association (CSMGA) has started the new year with strong participation due, in part, to the excellent golfing weather that has graced us this winter.  Lots of good things are happening at Carolina Shores this year.  The Golf Course has procured sixty new carts so that golfers can enjoy the game to the fullest extent.  Spring cleanup is in full swing and the course is improving every week.  Along with Friday play, the CSMGA has scheduled seven tournaments this year to enhance members' enjoyment of this great game.  The tournament schedule will kick off on April 7th with a two-man scramble tournament.   The following tournaments are also scheduled:


May 19th 4 Club or Match-Play Tournament

       June 16th Flag Day Tournament

       July 14th and 21st President's Cup

       August 25th and 26th Senior Club Championship

                   October 5th and 13th Ryder Cup Tournament vs The Valley

       November 10th Turkey Shoot


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.  The Association hosts regular league play every Friday.

Garden Club News –  Jane Boyle ladies who attended the Garden Club’s March meeting were treated to a fabulous presentation by Matthew Hughes of Hughes & Hughes Nursery.  Matthew gave us some interesting facts about trees – types that do well in our area, possible problems and diseases, and how to care for them.  Many thanks to our Program Chairs, Garen Waters and Kay Forbes for arranging this program.


Our next meeting will be on Wednesday, April 12th @ 1:00 p.m. at the CSPOA clubhouse.  Our program will be “Yard Art – Dressing Up Your Yard and Garden” presented by Mary Keefe, owner of The Yardbird Emporium in Calabash.

Book Discussion Group – Susie Riggs


Book shelf blank spines, empty binding stand on wood textureFifteen (15) ladies were present for our March meeting.  The two selections for the month were The New Colossus by Marshall Goldberg and After You by JoJo Moyes.  While not everyone had read The New Colossus, those who did raved about it so much that all those present now want to read this historical fiction book set in New York City in the late 1800s.  It is the story of Nellie Bly, reporter, who was hired by Joseph Pulitzer to try to solve the death of Emma Lazarus, famous poet and activist.  Greed and corruption were rampant, especially among the powerful people who controlled politics and government.  The title refers to the poem by Emma Lazarus that was placed on the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty, given to the city by France in 1886, and read by visitors throughout the ages.

After You, the sequel to Me Before You, was mostly well-received, especially by those who had read the first book.  Everyone agreed that the story was not as compelling nor as well-written as Me Before You, but it was a pretty good read.  It ended happily and gave closure for those who had read the first one!

Our next meeting will be held on at 10:00 a.m. on April 21st in the POA library.  We will be reading Teacher Man, by Frank McCourt.  All Carolina Shores residents who love to read are invited to join our group!



Needlework News – Flo Pflaster


basket with knitting needles and balls of yarnOur Needlework group met on March 13th at 10:00 a.m.  We had several new ladies join us and we enjoyed each other's company and getting to know each other.  We welcome anyone who does knitting, crocheting or other handicrafts to our chatty group.


We work on our personal products and have several ongoing projects for charity.  We use donated yarn for many of these items, or of course, bring your own!

There are no dues or officers in the group.  We meet on the second Monday of the month at 10:00 a.m. in the POA Clubhouse and usually work until noon.  Hope to see more clever handcrafters at the next meeting on April 10th.






Carolina Shores Quilt Guild Gloria Gustavson


Close-up of woman's hand stitching quiltingDuring the month of March some us took part in a class taught by Judy Lily, a professional in the quilting circle. What seemed to be a difficult project, turned out to be fun and creative. We were very thankful for our Guild for providing this class.  We now know how to make a "Peek-a-Boo Garden" wall Hanging.  The possibilities are endless.

On March 24th, we have invited original members of the CSQG for Tea and reminiscing and to show them how our Guild has evolved.

If anyone is interested in seeing what the CSQG is all about, we invite you to join us on the 2nd Friday of the month at 9:30 a.m.  On the fourth Friday of each month, we meet at 9:30 a.m. to work on our projects.  We welcome quilters of all levels.



New Horizons – Carla Urban


MCj04398570000[1]On Saint Patrick's Day, our group celebrated the occasion at the VFW in Little River.  Eleven of us had a very nice and enjoyable evening.  The corned beef and cabbage dinner they served was excellent.  The singer was also very good.  Our normal meeting is on the second Tuesday of the month so this was a departure from the way we have celebrated it in the past, but it went over nicely.


Our next meeting will be held on April 11th at the POA club house at 5:00 p.m. and anyone interested in joining is always welcome.  Evelyn Juskis and Beverly Rowse will lead us in a game of Senior Trivia.  This program had been scheduled for the January meeting but circumstances called for it to be rescheduled.  So, take a double dose of whatever brain food you use and come and join in.  It will be lots of laughs and entertaining to hear some of the answers.


Please remember that any and all singles are welcome to join in the good friendship and conversation. Hope to see many of you there.



New Friends – Flo Pflaster



We had a well-attended and fun filled celebration of St. Patrick's Day on March 13th under the leadership of Rhyne McCumby and her committee consisting of Barbara Hartnett and Jeanne Zalasko.  We were greeted by a fantastic pot luck luncheon with lots of green desserts, yummy food, and even corned beef and cabbage.  Almost everyone wore green and we heard the story of St. Patrick and participated in a trivia contest.  Irish music and a beautiful video played in the background.  Three new ladies joined the group.


Click on photo to enlarge

Mary Pritchard discussed re-forming the popular Travel Club which had been very active up until a few years ago.  There seemed to be a lot of enthusiasm and ideas for this and a group will meet soon to bring this idea to fruition.  Stay tuned!


New Friends meet 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 and going out to lunch afterwards.  Please remember to bring a non-perishable food item for the SBIC pantry.


On April 11th, Barbara Cassaro will lead the group.  Please note this in your calendar and plan to attend this fun group! 



New Neighbors – Flo Pflaster and Eva Jensen


Neighborhood with homes illustrated on white.Flo and Eva would like to welcome Margie Pettersen to their little committee of welcoming new neighbors! Glad to have you joining Flo and Eva!  Thanks to all three of you for reaching out to our new residents!!


Name: Aaron Ball and Jana Edwards

Address:  46 Swamp Fox Drive

Phone:  910-508-1258




Aaron and Jana are native North Carolinians who moved here from Asheville. Aaron worked for Western Carolina University as a professor in the Department of Engineering & Technology, and Jana was a dental hygienist. Both have recently retired. He looks forward to having more time to fish, golf, and pursue woodworking as a hobby. Once he is settled in the area, he plans to do volunteer for Habitat for the Humanity. He also enjoys going for walks, music, and sports. Jana, who was born in Shallotte, is an avid reader, loves nature, the beach, and warm weather.  Together, they hope to travel and enjoy the beauty of the coastal Carolinas.  You will see them walking in the neighborhood with their adorable pet Cockachon, Cooper. 



Name:  Boic, Gregory and Barbara Jane
Address:  65 Carolina Shores Drive

The couple is originally from the coastal Central Valley area of California but they have lived all over the country.  Gregory was employed as a welder by Lockheed Missile and Space in California.  Barbara was a retail buyer.  They both love the outdoors.  Barbara likes to cook and enjoys walking.  Gregory loves restoring old cars.  Currently he is restoring a 1932 Ford two door sedan.  He is also interested in learning how to play tennis.  Gregory is a Vietnam veteran and a Purple Heart recipient.  They are busy settling into their new home.  They chose Carolina Shores as it is close to the city but still "country."



Library News - Sue and Dan O’Reilly


Library - Bibliothèque - book titles converted to paths by The MartinIf anyone wishes to donate books to our library, please leave them in the plastic bin with the books to be shelved.  Do not shelve them yourself.  And remember, we only can use popular (10 years and newer) fiction and non-fiction.  Thank you.  




Beach Walk – Jo O’Keefe


Interested in walking on the East or West end of Sunset Beach with an amateur marine naturalist?  I am reluctant to walk alone.  You could choose days to walk.  Perhaps there will be several of you to cover more days.  I walk the two hours preceding low tide when they are during daylight.  I prefer the East end where the most finds are.  Please contact Jo O’Keefe at 579-0655, if interested.



Care Team – Flo Pflaster Care Team now has 22 people available to help neighbors in need when a request comes to me.  If you want to be a part of this team, or if you no longer want to be on the list, please let me know.  When a call for help comes to me I reach out to the members on Nextdoor.  I don't get very many calls for help, but people are so very grateful for the assistance they get!  It really doesn't take much to volunteer.  An occasional ride, help with a small chore at home, a temporary need for dog walking, etc. is usually what is needed.


So, neighbors, continue to let me know if you need help and I'll do my best to find someone. You don't have to be on Nextdoor to request help.
