Lee’s Crossing

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:


Mailbox PostsFor a free replacement mailbox post, please contact Bob Schoonover at (770) 422-8774.







Mailbox Street Number PlacardFor a free replacement street number placard for your mailbox, please contact Tom McBrayer at (770) 427-8057.






Mailbox Paint - Brighten up your mailbox post with a fresh coat of paint.  Free paint can be obtained by contacting Noel Follrath at (770) 426-0623.






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!


The annual Lee’s Crossing neighborhood yard sale has been set for Saturday, April 28th.  See the announcement in the following pages for more details.


A new neighborhood directory was issued the end of last year.  If you did not receive a copy and would like one for your home, please give me a call at (770) 421-9738 or send an email request to leescrossing@comcast.net.


As always, if you have questions or comments, please give me a call.


Best Regards,

Around the Neighborhood

Our neighbor, Walter Dean, has graciously volunteered to clean and paint the mailbox post of anyone in Lee’s Crossing who needs this work done.  This is a no charge service.  If you would like to schedule a time for Walter to do this work at your home, please call him at 404-862-3895.



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 leescrossing@comcast.net.


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!
