placed with Vern Wallace or Louise Baker, After the business meeting^
members and their husbands to a total of about sixty went out with green
bags to pick up trash in PKS and along Salter Path. Things are getting
better. The first year ninety bags were collected, last year 65» and
this year 55 to 60, That is progress, not enough improvement, to be
sure, but still progress. And after the trash was collected, everyone
went back to Kay and Curt Johnson*s for a chili lunch.
New neighbors - PEGGY and REA CARROLL are living on Beechwood across from
Hall Haven while their new home is being built on Sycamore and Birch
Court, When Rea’ retired, they moved to Raleigh but soon found that
Pine Knoll Shores was much more their type. They love the trees, the
breeze, their nearness to the ocean. As Rea pointed out, Bogue Banks
is a resort area but in PKS you wouUd never know it* Before his retire
ment, Rea was with U.S. Steel in Pittsburgh. He used to manage Little
League, but now he enjoys most walking the beach and swimming, Peggy
is, her husband reports, a good bridge player. Also, she is interested
in china painting. Oh yes, Rea also managed Pony League, too. They are
finding PKS residents very friendly and are rapidly getting acquainted
with people they meet on their walks through the town.
PRE-UNION PROVES PLEASANT: From readers HARRY and LIBBY SCHLIMPER of
Baldwin, New York, comes the following: **We recently had a ’Pre—union*
— not a re-union — of future tar-heelers at the home of BARBARA and
CHARLIE SPANSLIE in Seaford, N,Y. Barbara and Charlie own property in
Barnsfield on the mainland (editors’ note: that's our N.C. mainland).
We got to meet our future neighbors on Loblolly, JACK and MIDGE HOFFMAN,
and neighbors once removed, BOB and EVELYN ERATH, Also, we met PAUL and
MARY HEIM, who will be living on Sycamore, It all came about because
Barbara, Bob, Paul, and I work at Grumman Aerospace. Have all purchased
property in the Morehead City/PKS area for retirement purposes. Needless
to say, a glass or two was raised in toast to our future homes, and many
wishes were wished that we were there now!” Thanks, Schlimpers: we look
forward to your arrival!

the sound, the fishing and shelling, you would like to see the mountains
and their fall cblbiing? It is an easy trip up to Boone and Blowing Rock
and the Blue Ridge Parkway or into Tennessee on Route 321 which a girl at
the motel in Boone told us has ’’right many curvesA” She was right, and
steep climbs and colorful valleys, and Watauga Lake with its lovely pic
nic areas. And on your way to the mountains, take the time to see Old
Salem with its memories of the Moravian settlers. This is a three or
four day trip. It may be late for foliage this fall, but there will be
new leaves, rhododendron, and trout fishing in the spring. Given a lit
little more time, you can drive dov/n from Elizabo:thton, Tenn., through
the Cherokee National Forest to Ashville, And if you want to see still
more mountains, you can go on to Groat Smoky Mountains National Park
where Clingmans Dome rises to 66^2 feet, the highest point in Tennessee.
