Message from the Board -- Pete Gulliver, President
In comparative terms the past month has been quiet—for Cathie and me. While Cathie and I, and some Carolina Shores friends,
spent time in Key West (The Conch Republic and the Halloween Fantasy Festival are---unique), and then went on a cruise in the
Eastern Caribbean, the rest of the Board was finalizing the 2011 budget. They also reviewed plans to make health and safety
improvements to the office area of the POA Clubhouse, reviewed specifications for enhancing the security features at the pool
and picnic area, worked with our landscape contractor to improve our irrigation system and bush hog some buffer zones.
Carolina Shores Annual Holiday Party
We are holding our Holiday Party off site. The reason we are doing this is because the Brunswick County Fire Marshal has
determined that the maximum safe capacity of our club house is 150 people. In order to have enough room for every resident to
attend the party and stay as long as he or she wants to stay, we needed to find a location that is not restricted by this capacity.
By the way, the 150 person capacity isn’t a suggestion, it is an absolute maximum. If the Board chose to ignore this maximum
capacity and someone was injured or worse, the board and the community would be in a morally and legally indefensible
Our recreation committee has solved this almost unsolvable dilemma by obtaining the exclusive use of CAPTAIN JOHN’S

Recycle Center—Joyce Dunn
It’s time to get a New Recycling Center Sticker for the Town of Carolina Shores.
Beginning in 2011 the Town of Carolina Shores will issue new recycling center stickers (in a new color)
for residents every two years. The one currently on your vehicle will expire on February 11, 2011.
To get a new sticker you must apply at Town Hall on any business day from January 3 to February 10,
between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. When you come, bring with you a current driver’s license and the registration card
for each vehicle you wish to register.
If you are renting a property in the Town of Carolina Shores and wish to obtain a recycling sticker, you must present your
driver’s license and registration, along with a copy of your current lease or a utility bill and a letter from the property owner
authorizing you to use the recycling center. Stickers issued to property renters must be renewed once a year.
If you own a rental property in the Town, please be sure to inform your tenants about this change and give them written
authorization to use the recycling center.
The present stickers will only be good until February 11. After that date you will be turned away until you have the proper
identification sticker to enter the center. By issuing new stickers on a regular basis the Town will be able to ensure that the
recycling center is used only by legal residents of the town for disposal of their own trash and/or yard waste and not by people
who have moved away from the Town or by business owners trying to dispose of commercial debris.

You" from me to them.

Needlework News -- Flo Pflaster and Pat Lehman
The Carolina Shores Needlework Club met on November 8 at the POA Clubhouse and enjoyed a good
time with Bettie Berber showing us her picture album of the items she made over the years along with a
newspaper clipping of the original club members. Mae Kerr provided a delicious coffee cake.
Our December meeting will be held on the 13th, and due to the time limit we have at the POA
Clubhouse on that day, we decided we would work on our projects until 11:30 a.m. We will go to Derbsters for lunch and will
order off the menu. I will make reservations. See you in December.
Book Discussion Group – Virginia Fischer
The Carolina Shores Book Discussion Group met on November 19 at the POA Library.
There were 12 members including two new members present. First we discussed "The Nanny
Diaries" by Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus.
The group was disappointed in the Nanny Diaries mostly because of the flawed characters of
the nanny's employers. They were not kind or considerate, thinking only of impressing others of their own class of people and
ignoring their only child in the process. But there was some humor in the situations in these houses of the super rich. There are
times when it seems both sad and humorous to ordinary people. Nanny was a wonderful, kind person who put up with it all as
she was working her way through college. She was the one that possibly saved the life of her charge, "poor little rich boy
Grayer". Nanny really cared about him.
The second book discussed was "Strength in What Remains" by Tracy Kidder. Everyone who read this book loved it and urged
those who did not get to this second book to take the time to read it.
The December Meeting will be on Friday, December 17. The book to be discussed will be "The Help" by Kathryn Stockett.
The meeting will be at 10:30 a.m. followed by lunch at Noble's in honor of Cynthia Swanson who will be moving.
Cook’s Club News -- Dot Robertiello & Suzanne Kirksey
Everyone met on November 2 for the "Soup Extravaganza". I am sorry that I was unable to attend
as I was just too busy in sunny Florida. All the ladies made some very interesting soups: Suzanne
made "Sweet Potato Soup, which I was lucky enough to get a sampling of once I got home.
Yummy! Halla made an Islandic favorite "Prune Soup". Kathy E. made" Italian Sausage vegetable
Soup", Kathy K. made "Mushroom and Wild Rice Soup", Grayce made "Lettuce Soup" and Joan K.
made "Cream of Mushroom Soup". Everyone was delighted with the variety of soups.
The next meeting of Cook's Club will be on December 7. We will be celebrating "Christmas Brunch" with your choice of
goodies. Remember to come at 11:00 a.m. as we are back to back with the painting class, which starts at 1:00 p.m., so we must
be done by then.
We look forward to seeing you and tasting your brunch dishes on December 7 at 11:00 a.m. Bring your friends and neighbors to
join us in this celebration of the taste buds. If you have any questions, call Dot at 579-1407 or Suzanne at 579-4172.
New Horizons -- Betty Bond
Jean Jann promised us a "surprise" for our November meeting. She truly "out did" herself and
presented us with a Thanksgiving dinner. Jean went all out and we all have to extend a big
THANK YOU to her.
Our next meeting will be our Christmas luncheon. This will be held at Crow Creek on December
7, 2010 at 3:00 p.m. The cost of the luncheon is $20.00 per person. The club is going to pay
$3.00 per person (the gratuity) so each of us is responsible for $17.00. If you plan on attending, please be sure to give the money
to Pat Ferstler by December 4.
Dues will be due at our January meeting. $5.00 per year, a real bargain!
Here's wishing all of you a Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy New Year.
GOD bless you, one and all.
