November is a time to express gratitude,
and there is plenty to be thankful for in Pine
Knoll Shores. Pine Knoll Association (PKA) is
especially thankful that our parks and public
areas sustained minimal damage during
Hurricane Florence. Thanks to Dick Belanger,
Shannon Smylie, Mel Woods, John Clarke and
Phil Odom with his bobcat for removing trees
and debris that blocked the boat ramp at Brock Basin. Thanks to the member who
removed the downed tree limbs at Ocean Park. And thank you to David Parham,
Paul Pylko, John Clarke and Dean Barnes of Mud Bucket Dredging for removing
trees from the canal. The PKA board hired a tree service company to remove the
remaining downed trees and clean up PKA’s parks. Thankfully, the board paid for
this unexpected expense, using the already budgeted Parks Maintenance fund.
PKA is grateful for the amazing job the town of Pine Knoll Shores has done with
cleanup after Hurricane Florence. Thank you. Pine Knoll Shores town staff, for
quickly establishing the debris removal plan and activating it. Thanks to the Pine
Knoll Shores Fire & EMS Department team and CERT volunteers for monitoring
the debris removal.
Other things we are thankful for; neighbors helping neighbors, our still-
beautiful beaches, cooler afternoons with fall beach sunsets. First Sunday Sittum
Get Togethers—and'we are always thankful for our neighbors and PKA members.
