The Shoreline, Pine Knoll Shores, NC
The monthly newspaper of the Town of Pine Knoll Shores began in May 1973 as a two-page 9 x 14 single-spaced newsletter, written by two residents, Betty Doll and Mary Hammon. They realized that residents and prospective homeowners needed a way to get to know each other, share ideas, and learn about what was going on in their newly- formed community. By June 1973, the newsletter had a name, Pine Knoll Shore-Line. Over the years, the Shore-Line evolved from its beginnings as a mimeographed newsletter to today’s professionally printed newspaper, The Shoreline, still managed by volunteers. The Shoreline, then and now, helps make the town a community and gives it a recorded history.
There have been a few times when the newspaper was not published, as noted below:
