Message from the Board – Al Franklin, President


I hope you enjoyed your summer.  It is officially fall.  Hoping for cooler weather and that we will not have any more hurricanes.  We need to keep the people in areas that have been hit by hurricanes in our thoughts and prayers. 


Peter Kirkby, Vice President of the POA, has resigned his office.  I thank him for his years of volunteering for the residents and for the POA.  He will be missed.  Thank you, Peter. 


The Board of Directors have an architect working on plans for a pavilion at the recreation area and the pavilion will cover half of the picnic table area. 


Just another reminder, your vehicle should be parked on your property overnight and not in the common areas.  Country Club Road looks like a used car lot some evenings.  Thank you in advance for your cooperation on this issue.


Hopefully everyone got to take advantage of the free electronic recycling event held on September 15th.  If not, there are events scheduled for other locations in SC and NC in the near future.  Please contact S & S Salvage for information on those events.  The paper shredding event is being held on September 29th and is also free to Carolina Shores development residents.



Treasurer’s Report – Kerry Jarrell


This year’s budget process began in September with the various CSPOA committees, board members, and staff submitting funding requests for 2018 to the Finance and Audit Committee.  The Committee will assimilate those requests and submit the first draft of the budget for 2018 to the board of directors in early October.  After further review, the board will present the final draft at the Member Discussion Meeting in early November.  Members are encouraged to attend that meeting and provide their input on the budget.


The budget contains two components, an operating budget, which funds the routine expenses for the clubhouse, pool, tennis courts, office, etc., and a reserve budget, which funds the annual contribution to the facility repair/replacement reserve.


Most Carolina Shores property owners would agree that the cost of operating and maintaining the facilities and providing for member activities at CSPOA is considerable.  Through the years our member dues have been kept much lower than other POAs in the surrounding area primarily through the efforts of a large cadre of member volunteers. While we will continue to rely on volunteers to help us keep the dues affordable, some increases in operating costs are simply unavoidable.


The Capital Reserve Study, which was completed in 2008, provided us with a long-term plan for repair and replacement of our facilities.  The Study also contained a funding plan to accomplish the necessary renovations or replacements over a period of thirty years.  The professionals who drafted the Study recommended a schedule of annual reserve contributions as the least expensive means of funding such projects.  They also noted that this method of funding ensures that homeowners pay their “fair share” of the weathering and aging of the facilities each year.  The contribution to the replacement reserve in 2018 will be in line with the recommendations of the Study.


We look forward to your input and to seeing each of you at the Member Discussion Meeting in November.



Architectural Control Committee – Joe Martere, ACC Chairman


The ACC will do a second survey of empty lots as a follow up to our original check done over the summer.  As of now, some 15 owners have complied and bush hogged their property, or are in the process of getting it done.  A second letter will go out to those owners who have not responded or complied with our request.  The ACC will be writing up guidelines to ensure that all lots are cleaned to the same level.  This information will go to all contractors who are currently bidding and performing the work for the owners.


A reminder that if a named storm impacts our community, and a tree falls or starts to come out of the ground, that INDIVIDUAL tree may be removed and doesn’t require ACC approval.  This is considered an emergency situation and all steps should be taken to keep your home safe from any damage.  Please remember to use the recommended tree contractors provided by the ACC.  Be careful of any tree companies that drive by and solicit your work.  Also, if someone does come to your door please ask for their card and notify the ACC so we can notify them of the “No Solicitation” policy in effect for our community.


If you have any questions regarding work to be done on the exterior of your home, please call the ACC to see if a permit is required.  The ACC is staffed Monday through Thursday each week during the hours of 9:00 am and 12:00 noon.

Book Discussion Group – Susie Riggs


Book shelf blank spines, empty binding stand on wood textureThe Carolina Shores Book Discussion Group met at the POA Clubhouse on Friday, September 15th to discuss two reading selections, The Barrowfields by Phillip Lewis and America’s First Daughter by Stephanie Dray and Laura Kamoie.  Set in the fictional town of Old Buckram, North Carolina, The Barrowfields, is a tale of family, coming of age, and sorrow in the Appalachian Mountains.  America’s First Daughter is a well-researched but somewhat embellished page-turner chronicling the life of Thomas Jefferson’s daughter Patsy Jefferson Randolph.  While most of the members had read The Borrowfields and had mixed reactions to the novel, the excellent reviews of America’s First Daughter given by the few who had read it motivated those who had not to add it to their “To Be Read” lists. 

Our list of reading selections for the next twelve months has been finalized and is as follows:

October - The Lost City of the Monkey God by Douglas Preston and/or Kitchens of the Great     
                  Midwest by J. Ryan Stradal

November - The Next Step in the Dance: A Novel by Tim Gautreaux
December - A Man Called Ove by Frederik Backman
January - Commonwealth by Ann Patchett
February - Special Heart by Bret Baier and/or Wonder by R.J. Palacio
March - A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles
April - A Piece of the World by Christina Baker Kline
May - The Horse Dancer by Jojo Moyes
June - And After the Fire by Lauren Belfer
July - The Curse of Beauty by James Bone
August - Hissing Cousins by Marc Peyser and Timothy Dwyer
September - The Alice Network by Kate Quinn


The next meeting will take place on Friday, October 20th at 10:00 a.m. in the POA Library.  All interested Carolina Shores residents are welcome to attend!

Care Team – Flo Pflaster Care Team now has 23 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.
