Message from the Board – Al Franklin, President


I have had both residents and nonresidents of Carolina Shores compliment the beautiful flower bed at the brick wall in front of the POA.  If you have not noticed, take time to really look at the area.  I want to thank Jack Bendy and the POA grounds contractor Dennis Langdon for all their work on this project.


Most of the residents in the community know about the NEXTDOOR website.  Since this website was established, it has strayed from the original purpose.  It was developed for residents to share event information, locate stores, doctors, and services, and connect in a positive way with neighbors.  Instead of providing a neighborly service to our neighbors and community, it has become a political soap box loaded with falsehoods, complaints and negativity.  The bad thing about the political soap box is that most of the information is unfounded and it causes a lot of drama and hardships in the community.  Recently a resident from another community put comments about the POA not paying their own way and that The Town of Carolina Shores is helping the POA financially.  Another example would be the persistent bashing of the Carolina Shores Golf course.  The negative comments will damage your home value and the home values of the majority of homeowners who are not uttering complaints.  That information has resulted in the golf course management receiving harassing phone calls by our residents.  I could give you more examples but I have made my point.


That being said, I am asking that the NEXTDOOR site be utilized for the original purpose and that you end the bickering and negativity.  If you absolutely MUST voice something political, please consider a more appropriate forum.  If you choose NEXTDOOR, you are obligated to verify your information and make sure it is void of insults, personal attacks and bullying.  You must be in compliance with the NEXTDOOR rules.  If you choose not to comply, your post should be deleted.


If you have questions about information you hear in the community, please call the POA office and ask. We have a great staff and they will give you the correct information.  If they don’t know, they will either get the information and call you back or tell where you can find the information.


Let’s not generate problems…let’s work together to correct any problems.  Get involved with your community and help.  Thank you.



Architectural Control Committee – Joe Martere, ACC Chairman


The ACC reminds all owners that it is their responsibility to obtain approval for any tree removal, not the contractor. Read the new change in the requirement regarding stumps.  Stumps MUST be cut flush to the ground, or commercially removed by grinding.


The ACC will inspect and approve all tree requests for the Town also, so you do not have to go to Town Hall.  These forms are available at the POA, and on the Carolina Shores POA website (


The new language and subsequent changes concerning tree stump removal and sign requests have been implemented after approval of the Board at the July meeting. The appropriate forms have been updated.


The ACC is here to serve the community.  If you have any questions regarding upcoming projects at your home, please call the office.  We will be glad to advise you as to whether you need an approval.

Carolina Shores POA Office – Emergency Contact Information

After the book discussion, each member submitted one title to be included in our reading list for 2017-2018.  This list will be published in the bulletin next month.  The selections for September are The Barrowfields by Phillip Lewis and America’s First Daughter by Stephanie Dray and Laura Kamoie.  Members may choose to read one or both books.

New Friends met on August 8th with a small group of participants.  This was the fifth month in a row in which only a few people attended.  We sat and discussed this while snacking and decided to put New Friends on hiatus for the time being due to lack of interest.  Six of us went out for lunch to Papa's Pizza in the middle of a thunderstorm and a water main break issue.  We all feel a loss but perhaps in the future, this wonderful group will be restarted.

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.
