• • Pine Knoll Shores News and Notes from Pine Knoll Shores May 1973 Let's face it -- Pine Knoll Shores is coming of age. The beautiful lots are almost all sold to beautiful people. There are more than 100 families living, playing, gardening, boating, enjoying each other in the area, and soon the guardian wing of the Roosevelts will be lifted in order that we can have an op portunity to try our own wings. So -- how about a Pine Knoll Shores Newsletter (you send name ideas to the "editors" who confess below to putting this first crea tion together), something functional, spreading tidbits around the shores, giving residents and non-residents a chance to fill us all in on what's happening to them, how they feel about life down here, and just generally bringing the whole group together through the old standby medium, the press. Remember the PKS book you got when you first began dreaming about slipping away from wherever it was you used to run in the rat race? The description of the community? The picture of the sunset over sound and sea? Couldn't you just hug yourself with pride to think that you absorbed that book, made your way down here, and stayed? (Or, if you are still a non-resident, aren't you, at this moment, wanting to page through that book again, or better yet, pack up and come now?) True, at first this was only a dream land. But now our dreamland has people, and some of us don't even know each other. If this were New York, we'd shrug away the "getting to know you" stuff. But this is Pine Knoll Shores; many of us have more leisure than we've known before. Some of us are from faraway places where we didn't have sea fishing or clamming, and we need help from our neighbors so that we can learn to be big sea folks. Others of us have to figure out how to keep our boats from running aground. We simply need each other, kind of the way the pioneers did way back when they settled new ter ritories. We need to share knowledge and ideas, and we need just to talk to each other sometimes. Let's talk through the newsletter. Send us your comments about Pine Knoll Shores living -- your gardening tips, your new found sea food recipes, your points of joy in our place and way of life, your suggestions of projects which might further enhance our community. Let's hear from you as we grow up together in Pine Knoll Shores. SOME SOON-TO-BE-MOVING-IN-NEW-NEIGHBORS: The Si Bezuyens, the Milt Yaecks, the J. Millers, the George Griffiths, the Roy Vorises. The Griffiths and the Yaecks have been here as renters while their houses are going up. Have you met them already? Watch for all these people and greet them!
