Greetings Neighbors,

 

Well, So much for an early spring this year.  I hope you are all well and looking forward to a warmer April.

 

The election results for the two Board positions up for renewal are in and Walt Walker and Erroll Eckford were both reelected to the Board.  The Board is in the process of approving a replacement for Kevin Brown’s position.   At the March board meeting Erroll Eckford was voted by the Board members to be the Lee’s Crossing President going forward.  Erroll has previously filled the President’s position and will do a great job for us all.

 

The Board now has another vacant position due to Joe Fenton resigning his position because of work commitments.  The Board members and I want to thank Joe for all his services over the past 2 years.   He did a great job as Secretary and his commitment was to make our neighborhood the best it can be.

 

With Erroll taking over as President this will be my last newsletter, but I will be continuing on with the Board as a normal member.  It has been a pleasure serving as the President for the past two years.  It is amazing how fast time flies. 

 

The swim team is starting to organize, so look for more information in this newsletter.  Laura Fenton has taken over as the Team Coordinator this year and will hopefully have assistance from many of the parents on the team.

 

That is it for now. Please don’t hesitate to contact me or send a note to LeesCrossing@comcast.net for questions you may have regarding our neighborhood.

 

Be healthy and safe and I will see you around the neighborhood.

 

 

Brad Herr

LCHA President

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Around the Neighborhood

 

 

Lee’s Crossing Cyclones

Swim Team

 

The 2013 swim team is organizing now.  Open Registration will be held at the clubhouse on Monday April 15th 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 $35 per swimmer for those living in the neighborhood and $85 per swimmer for those outside of Lee’s Crossing. 

 

The team suit is not new this year.  Swimmers are welcome to wear a previous design 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 13th - weather permitting.  Morning practices will begin Tuesday May 28th.   Meets will be held on THURSDAY (correction from last month) evenings this year.  We will have two home meets scheduled for June 13th and 27th.

 

Parent support is required!   There will be a team meeting on Tuesday, April 2nd at 7pm in the clubhouse.  It takes many hands to run a swim team.  So please be ready to lend yours. 

Registration packets – including more information about practice times 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 27, from 8am to 1pm.

Ads will be placed in the Marietta paper, and 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.

 

 

Graduation Time!

 

Graduation for both high school and college is just a short time away.  Please send the names and the school of all college and high school students living in Lee’s Crossing who will graduate this spring to Barry Christensen at bschristensen@mindspring.com.  This list will be used for the sign at the front of Lee’s Crossing.  Call Barry with any questions at 770-426-6876.

Dear Lee’s Crossing Residents,    

                                                                               

I hope this letter finds you well!  I was recently nominated as a candidate for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's 2013 Woman of The Year.  This is an annual 10-week fundraising campaign to support Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.  The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is the world's largest voluntary health agency dedicated to blood cancer. The LLS mission: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. LLS funds lifesaving blood cancer research around the world and provides free information and support services. I am truly humbled and honored to have been nominated for this cause!     

It is heartbreaking to think that every 4 minutes someone in the US is diagnosed with a blood cancer.  Over the years, I have lost several family members and friends to cancer.  Almost everyone I know has either known someone touched by the disease or has fought the battle themselves.  I am determined to do whatever it takes to help find a cure. 

My goal is to raise $75,000, and I need your generous support to achieve this number in support of the local LLS goal of over $650,000.  I am sending this letter who I believe would be willing to contribute in support of this effort.

Another great option is to buy 2 tickets to the Finale Gala on June 8th for $150/ea.  The link to order tickets is:  http://www.mwoy.org/ga/localchapter/atlanta/finale.   I really appreciate a contribution of any amount.  Your donation is tax deductible and will go directly to the fulfillment of the Society's mission.

Simply go online to http://www.mwoy.org/pages/ga/atlanta13/knapiers26 and click on the "make your donation" link to be directed to a secure web site to donate.  You will immediately receive an email receipt confirming your tax deductible donation.   All donations must be received by June 8, 2013. 

 

As a final request I ask that you please use your circle of influence and ask for help on behalf of my campaign.  It would mean the world to me, if you would forward the link above with your personal comments to everyone you know.  Your help would be very much appreciated! 

 

If you have any questions, please call me on my cell phone 786-897-1397 or email me at Kelly.Napier@Assurant.com.  I would love to talk with you and tell you more about my campaign.  Partner with me, and together we can help advance the mission of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

 

 I look forward to speaking with you very soon.

 

Sincerely,

 

 

Kelly Napier

I Recommend:

 

Bill Dickman would like to recommend two companies that he has had great satisfaction with in terms of price, quality of work and service! The first is 2B’s Equipment Repair Service, 1880 Old 41 Hwy N, Kennesaw, GA 30152. “Over the past number of years Bob (owner) and his crew have fixed all sort of gas powered equipment for me. They’re the best I’ve ever used! Call Bob or Sam @ 770-428-1774.”

 

Bill also recently had to replace his two furnaces and A/C units. “After thoroughly reviewing three major local firms, we chose COOLRAY, who installed top of the line Carrier units in one day! Of all the major projects we have ever done on our home, I’ve never had a crew leave a smaller foot print considering noise, clutter, inconvenience than these men. We are totally satisfied with our new systems! Call Britt Bagwell @770-421-8400.”

 

Vikki Parrish recommends Will Goodman's spring gardening classes. Goodman and Associates has provided residential and commercial services throughout the South for 22 years. They are currently offering a series of classes for homeowners focusing on pruning, tree care/planting, and establishing vegetable gardens. Classes are $30/person. Please contact Will at 770-560-5407 or willgoodman@mindspring.com for availability and to schedule.
