Lee’s Crossing

Monthly Newsletter                                                                      April 2008




From the President:


Dear Residents,


Spring has arrived and the schools recess for spring break on April 4 and reopen on April 14. Please be extra careful driving during the break as you can expect children to be at play.


Lawns and shrubbery are coming out from their winter dormancy and will soon need attention. Unlike last year, homeowners will have a limited ability to water existing plants without resorting to the use of “gray water”.  For details on when, how, and if, see the website www.outdoorwateruse.com.


We all need to express our appreciation to Erroll Eckford for serving with distinction as Association President for the last  2 ½ years. Erroll is remaining on the Board and will serve as the chair of the ACC for the coming year. Officers for the new year include Jim Martin as Vice President, Steve Young as Secretary and Noel Follrath as Treasurer. Kevin Brown will serve as the director overseeing social activities and Carl Trevathan, as a new director, will serve in various areas.


We will soon be uncovering the pool for the spring and firing up the pumps and filters in a maintenance mode. We will, of course, open on the Memorial Day weekend and will have further details in next month’s newsletter.


We look forward to serving you in the coming year.

Around the Neighborhood



Lee's Crossing is proud to have three Teachers of the Year for the Marietta City Schools - Lori Bruton, A.L. Burruss, Nancy Walker, Park Street Elementary and Kathie Wood, Marietta Middle School. Congratulations.




Registration for the 2008 Lee’s Crossing Cyclones Swim Team will be held Monday April 14th from 5:30 to 7:30 at the clubhouse.  Swimmers from 5 to 18 years of age (as of June 1st) are welcome to join us.  The cost is $20 per swimmer for those living in the neighborhood and $75 per swimmer for those outside of Lee’s Crossing.


The team will be ordering new suits this season.  These will be available for purchase at registration.  New team T-shirts will also be ordered.


This season we will be swimming on Wednesday nights beginning May 28th and continuing for 5 weeks though June 26th.  After school practices will begin May 12th, weather permitting, with morning practices beginning Tuesday May 27th.


Registration packets – including actual practice and meet schedules, meet attendance forms and parent worker preferences, (it is mandatory for parents to work at least one full meet or two half meets) will be sent out via email to those on last year’s email distribution list.  This information will also be available at registration.   


If you would like to join us please contact me for a packet or further information.

Being Neighborly


Just a friendly reminder for those of us who walk our dogs around the neighborhood – please carry a plastic bag with you to clean up after your pet!



Please Note


If you know of a neighborhood resident who would like a copy of the newsletter, but is homebound or UNABLE to get to the clubhouse mailbox and does not have access to the internet or e-mail, please drop us a note with their name and address to leescrossing@comcast.net.  We will make arrangements to get a monthly copy to them.






The annual neighborhood yard sale will be on Saturday, May 3rd, from 8am to 1pm. Ads will be placed in the Marietta and Atlanta papers. Signs on Whitlock Avenue will also be put out directing people to Lee's Crossing. Each home having a sale may put out their own signs, but please take them down after the sale. In past years, residents of Lee's Crossing have had a preview of the sales the night before. Good luck to everyone who participates!





WANTED:  Someone from the neighborhood with ability to hook up his/her music system/ipod into the pool speaker system...with an appropriate variety...to play music during summer pool parties.  Call Janet Duncan 770-427-1502

WANTED:  Helpers with grilling our big BBQ feast for Memorial Day (Sat. before) party...and hot dogs/hamburgers during Labor Day.  Call Janet Duncan for Labor Day and Phil Wooten for Memorial Day.

WANTED:  Any neighbor to offer a hand during serving and especially clean up of  neighborhood pool parties (we on Social Committee are volunteering neighbors too). 

WANTED::  Neighborhood feedback on 2008 plans:
       I'm so  happy to have additional volunteers on the Committee.  We had a successful Superbowl party...Thanks Kevin Brown.  We had an eventful Easter egg hunt too.  Now we look forward to summer!

May 24th at 1pm:  We're planning a big BBQ like we had years ago...this is a great time for the "guys" of the neighborhood to catch up while providing our wonderful meal.

July 4th  Is often a hit or miss:  Social Committee decided to not have anything.  Janet Duncan is willing to ensure propane is full if people want to grill their own and she/Social Committee can provide beer, soda, water, chips and cookies....maybe even some fun kid relays and games like last year.  Please call Janet with your input!!

July 26th and Aug 23rd :  Depending on interest at 7/26, we hope to have two ADULT DIVE IN MOVIES.  The Social Committee is planning two adult pool parties during these two evenings when you can swim, socialize, and watch a movie at the same time.  Of course there'll be plenty of refreshments.

Sept. 1st   Labor Day pool party

Oct. 11th   Wine and cheese social (possibly in conjunction with a tailgate party if there's a big game to watch).

Dec. 31st   Our big New Year's Eve party at the clubhouse.  Mock casino night, open bar, DJ and dancing.  I'm really surprised every adult doesn't make a point to come to this.  You get so much more for your money: it's safe since you can walk home.  It's fun visiting with all your neighbors.  And YES, you can invite family and friends...it just costs a bit more for non-residents.


Attention Fellow Homeowners


Do you have unresolved service issues with Comcast?

Unfortunately I have become more educated about Comcast than I ever wanted to be.

I have developed some resources to work around 1-800-Comcast.

I only use this when the normal channels fail. Call or e-mail me & perhaps I can help.
