Lee’s Crossing

Monthly Newsletter                                                                      April 2011


Dear Neighbors,


I hope with this reading you are doing well and enjoying our early spring.  The election results are in for the three Board positions and the Treasurer position that was up for renewal.  With this new Board, we say goodbye to Steve Young with a huge thank you for 10+ years of service.  Steve informed us last fall that he would not seek to renew his position this year.  He has served as Secretary during his tenure and will be greatly missed.  However, the Board welcomes a new member, Joe Fenton, who will be our new Secretary.  Walt Walker, who will continue as Director of Swim and Tennis, and Kevin Brown, Director of Social Activities, were both re-elected. Both are continuing their long time service to the neighborhood. Angela Ford was re-elected as treasurer and is now serving her second year on the Board.


            With the close of the March 10th Board meeting, Jim Martin stepped down from the President’s position, but is staying on the Board in the At-Large position. Thank you Jim for your leadership and your commitment to the Lee’s Crossing community. I, Brad Herr, was voted in by the Board to be the new President. 


For those that don’t know me, my family and I have been residents of Lee’s Crossing for 20 years.  Many of you may know my wife Susan, who runs the LC swim team and is out walking most every evening.  Together, we have raised two wonderful daughters, Caitlin and Chelsea.  With both girls in college now, I have a little more time to commit to the community.  My goal as President is to continue along the path of my predecessors taking care of the business of the neighborhood, and maintaining the clubhouse, swim and tennis facilities as cost effectively as possible because these all add significant value to our homes.  This means getting the best value for the dollars spent, which is not always the cheapest option available.  The Board as a whole will also be watching out for external events, such as Traton Homes taking over the development just outside the front of Lee’s Crossing, that could also impact our property values.


Spring is here, trees are in bloom and the days are getting warmer.  I see and hear many of you out trimming, mowing and catching up with those pesky leaves.  The tennis court reconstruction is coming along on schedule I am happy to say.  I know a lot of tennis players can’t wait to get out on the new courts.  The old courts have suffered badly the last two winters, but have served us well over the past 30 yrs.  Thank you Walt for all your time researching and getting bids for all the options we had to consider for this reconstruction.


If you should ever have any comments or concerns, please do not hesitate to call me. My home phone number is (770) 499-9354


That is it for now. See you all around the neighborhood!


Brad Herr

LCHA President

Lee’s Crossing Cyclones

Swim Team


The 2011 swim team is getting organized.  Registration will be held at the clubhouse on Monday, April 11th from 4:30 to 7 pm.  New participants, from 5 to 18 years of age (as of June 1st) are always welcome.  The cost is just $25 per swimmer for those living in the neighborhood and $75 per swimmer for those outside of Lee’s Crossing.


The team suit is the same as last year, but if you are new or need a replacement they will be available for sizing and purchase at registration.


After school practices will begin May 16th - weather permitting.  Morning practices will begin Tuesday May 31st.   Meets will be held on Tuesday evenings this year.  We will have three home meets scheduled for June 14th, 21st, and 28th.


Parent support is required!   It is mandatory for parents to work at least one full meet or two half meets.  Many parents work much more and their efforts are greatly appreciated!!  If you cannot work “during a meet” there are other opportunities.


Registration packets – including more information about practice and meet schedules will be emailed out to last year’s team.  This information will also be available at registration.


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

The annual neighborhood yard sale will be on Saturday, April 30, 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.
