The Waterford Plantation Board of Directors invites all neighborhood residents to a “meet and greet” with the board candidates. The event will be held prior to the annual meeting on April 19 at the Carolina Forest Recreation Center. 

There are three open seats on the board. The nominees are Cookie Manos, George Serey and Carole vanSickler. As of press deadlines, the proxies had not been received. We hope you will attend this event to get to know your future board members.

Reminder from our events committee: There will be an Easter egg hunt on Saturday at the amenity center. Children ages 5 and under will begin at 10 a.m. and children ages 6 through 10 will begin at 1 p.m. Please bring your favorite basket or bucket. Help is needed to hide the eggs on the day of the event. Volunteers are needed at 9 a.m. and then again at noon. Volunteers, please sign up with Tracy, Val or Holly. You can also sign up by emailing

The Waterford Plantation Community Yard Sale is scheduled for April 17 from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m.

Rain date is April 24. If you would like to participate, tie a balloon to your mailbox.

It would also be helpful for those who live in a cul-de-sac to put a sign out on their corner leading shoppers to their home.

An adult brunch for Waterford Plantation residents is planned for April 18 at noon at Sam Snead’s. We hope to hold this on the outside patio, weather permitting. Space is limited. If interested in attending, please contact Holly at

The pool at Waterford is opening on April 1. The signing of the two COVID waivers is still required to enter the amenity center. If you signed this waiver last year, you will not need to sign one again for this year. The waivers will be the only additional restriction to the pool and amenity center other than the normal rules and regulations. Waivers can be found on TownSq under announcements. There are two documents required to be signed (if you have not already done so).

The application by Plum Branch was scheduled to be discussed at the Horry County Planning Commission workshop on Thursday. Volunteers are out getting signatures to present to Horry County. There is no public input at a workshop. Concerns about this rezoning can be sent to Please keep

sending emails to say no. The planning commission will meet on April 1 to review and make their recommendation to Horry County Council. More updates will be coming via media outlets.

Please get involved as this will affect us all.

The Carolina Forest Civic Association’s next meeting will be April 21. The speaker will be announced at a later date. The March speaker was Mark Miraglia on cybersecurity. This was interesting for all since we now spend more time online.

There will be an upload of his presentation on the CFCA website. CFCA business members are encouraged to attend and tell us about your business. It is amazing to look at the growth of Carolina Forest and the projected growth, proposed projects and traffic.
