Waterford held a Veterans Day program on Nov. 11. The weather was brisk but sunny and the event was well attended.  Attendees were honored by the decorations, services and refreshments. Thanks go out to Sheila and Mike Vanclief for volunteering and to those who stepped in to assist as well.   

Waterford Plantation had an open board meeting last week.  The Firewise committee held a presentation on how to keep our homes safe, and offered a proposed policy to the board of directors for consideration on the restriction of the use of pine straw.

Mandy Pascale, HOA president, discussed the increased assessments effective Jan. 1, 2020 and that a mailing was going out to all homeowners. 

The board is also reviewing all ponds and fountains for future actions. 

There are no social events planned at this time. Volunteers were requested. 

The full minutes should be up on the website shortly, please review. 

I had a great opportunity to see The Lion King Jr. performed by the Myrtle Beach Area Children’s Theater recently.  The show was at the Horry County Council on Aging’s Grand Strand Senior Center on 21st Avenue. 

I had never had the opportunity to go to one of these shows, and was amazed to watch these young students, in first through 12th grades, show such talent, and I predict many will be stars of the future. 

The Children’s Theater highlights students in the various programs.  The sets were amazing and challenging based on the senior center’s stage. 

Please check out their website,, to learn of this opportunity for young talents and future shows. 

 The Carolina Forest Civic Association will not meet in December.  HOA boards of directors are asked to forward details on leasing costs of light poles and fixtures to the CFCA for our Santee Cooper volunteer committee. 

This strong group of volunteers has started discussions with Santee Cooper about future pole costs and more, which affect each and every HOA in our community.
