PKS Garden Club
By Kathy Foy
Jan Corsello thanking guest speaker Carolyn Hoss.
The Pine Knoll Shores Garden Club met
on March 9. The guest speaker was Carolyn
Hoss. Ms. Hoss is a Master Gardener who
expresses her love of nature through her art
work, specializing in painting plants and birds.
Her topic of discussion at the meeting,
preserving the trees in Carteret County, was
another passion of hers..
Carteret County is a rapidly growing area
and lots are being cleared quickly without
considering the possibility of preserving the
existing trees, particularly the older stately
trees. As a result of these actions, the Carteret
County Tree Awareness Organization was
formed. Ms. Hoss is an active member of this
group and hopes to spread the word that tree
preservation as well as planting new trees are
important to our communities. Trees provide
shade, buffer noise and wind, are habitats for
wildlife and are pleasing to the senses. Some
native trees to consider for planting are Live
Oak, Magnolia, Red Cedar,
Yaupon Holly, American Holly,
Dogwood and Wax Myrtle.
Spring is coming and the birds
will be returning to build their
nests, so now is the time to clean
out the birdbaths and nesting
Gardening tip of the month,
chopping fruit and vegetable
peelings in the blender and adding
them to the top soil will release
nutrients, particularly nitrogen
into the soil.
The PKS Garden Club will
be replacing the plants that were damaged as
a result of a traffic accident in the garden at
the end of Mimosa Boulevard.
The Pine Knoll Shores Garden Club has
approved its new slate of officers for the
coming year. The new president will be Jan
Corsello, first vice president, Shirley
Schaeffler; second vice president, Betsy
McGibbon; recording secretary, Carol
McVitty and corresponding secretary,
There will be no scheduled speaker next
month. The Garden Club will be holding its

Once again the Pine Knoll Shores Red Hat Ladies donned
their purple dresses and red hats Wednesday, Feb. 22, for a trip
to Cherry Point Marine Corps Base. A base bus drove them to
VMA-1, home of PEDRO, the Search and Rescue helicopters.
After a tour of the facility and a walk through PEDRO, they were
driven to the air traffic control tower where they visited the radar
room and the control tower. (A Harrier was performing vertical
liftoffs.) From there they were taken to the clubs at Pelican Point
for a delicious Italian luncheon and finished their tour with a
drive through of Cherry Point.
