Monthly Newsletter April 2007
From the President…
Spring is here and time to think about a little spring cleaning. Benefits offered homeowners in Lee’s Crossing include free mailbox posts, street number placards and paint. In an effort to keep consistency throughout the neighborhood, the cost of these items is covered by your annual assessment. So in the next few weeks, check out your mailbox and see if it needs a little sprucing up. If so, here’s how you can get what you need:
<![if !vml]><![endif]>Mailbox Posts – For a free replacement mailbox post, please contact Bob Schoonover at
<![if !vml]><![endif]>Mailbox Street Number Placard – For a free replacement street number placard for your mailbox, please
contact Tom McBrayer at
<![if !vml]><![endif]>Mailbox Paint - Brighten up your mailbox post with a fresh coat of paint. Free paint can be obtained by contacting Noel
A few additional ideas to get a jump start on you spring cleaning – shrub trimming, pressure wash your home exterior, spread pine straw or other suitable mulch around your plantings and apply suitable fertilizer and weed control on your lawn. Enjoy these spring days outside!

Newsletter by E-Mail
Quite a few of us have signed up to receive the newsletter via e-mail. If you haven’t done so, please consider a few advantages. Getting the newsletter via e-mail not only saves money for the HOA, but also saves paper. You will also get the e-mail version earlier than the paper version (depending on editor/stringer schedules, maybe several days earlier). Having a mostly e-mail distribution allows a later cut-off date for articles and also allows events the first couple of days of the month to be included in the current newsletter. Please consider signing up for e-mail delivery. Send your request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For those of you who are already signed up for e-mail distribution – if your e-mail address changes, please make sure to notify us!
