From the President…
Congratulations to the Lee’s Crossing Cyclones swim team; they blew through another successful season. In spite of moving up a level, the team finished with a record of 2 wins and 2 losses. Great job to all the swimmers, organizers, coaches, parents and fans. Even though the competition was fun, it was great to see so many neighbors out having a good time. I look forward to celebrating their success at the Swim Team Party on Thursday, August 3rd.
After all the excitement and vacation fun, it seems school
is just around the corner. Depending on
your perspective, the start of school may be a happy time or a sad time. Anyway, as kids get back on the street before
and after school, let’s all be conscious of our speedometer – the Speed
Limit still remains 25
Every one enjoyed our 4th of July activities with the parade (24 kids showed us their red, white and blue) and party at the pool. Thanks to Janet Duncan and her crew (Cathy & David Hettrich, Judie Ebert, Cindi Filer, Sandy Wilson, Sandra Powell and Beth Garrett) for putting a great get-together at the pool. If you are interested in contributing to the planning of future neighborhood activities, Janet would be excited to hear from you. Look for more information about our activities for the Labor Day weekend.
Our new clubhouse has been used extensively over the summer and has been reserved for many activities through the end of the year. During this time, an interior design committee has been developing a plan for the renovation of our kitchen space and decorating for the new space. We expect to see renovation work begin after Labor Day.
As always, I welcome your input and comments.

SENIOR MEN TENNIS PLAYERS NEEDED
We are forming an ALTA Tennis Team from Lee's Crossing. It will be a Wednesday Morning Men’s Senior League. Senior is defined as any male 55 or older. Contact Dan Kelleher 678-354-7042 for more details.
Ladies Weekday “C” level tennis team
Lee's Crossing currently hosts a Ladies Weekday C level tennis team. We have lessons on Tuesday morning and play on Thursdays. If you have any interest in joining this team, please call Diane Edwards at 770-575-0445.
Remember to book your parties at the Lee's Crossing Clubhouse. If you have not seen the facility it is worth the drive over. Call Debbie Kelleher 678-354-7042 for reservations. Payment is required at time of booking.
POOL LOST AND FOUND
If you have left anything at the pool it is most likely in the lost and found. Please claim your lost items. Unclaimed items will be thrown out August 15th and August 31st.
Remember to clean up after yourself when you use the pool area. That means what you bring to the pool you take home from the pool.
The bicycle parade was fun for the group of kids that came down to the clubhouse. We appreciate all the parents that came to help, decorated, and shared your truck and trailer! The home-made cookies were yummy, too! I know all the kids that participated had a great time showing off the bikes they decorated. I'm hoping the new day (the Saturday morning before the 4th), will ring in a new tradition for the neighborhood. It was nice not conflicting with the city's parade!
Our July 4th kids games, snacks and drinks by the pool attracted many of you. We were glad to see you. The pool is a great place to meet your neighbors and relax. It's very nice seeing all ages enjoying our lovely facilities. I appreciate seeing a feeling of "pride" in our property when I'm not the only one who notices and picks up garbage around the pool area, parking lot, and "hill".
LABOR DAY EVENTS
Get ready for tennis round robin in the morning (see below for details) followed by poolside cookout around noon. We'll have burgers, dogs, beer, wine, soft drinks, and music. We’ll also have a volleyball tournament starting around 3:00. You can form your own team or just show up. Bring your energy as well as your hunger and thirst...they will all be satisfied!
LABOR DAY TENNIS MIXER
As part of Labor Day festivities we are going to hold a tennis mixer from 10am to 12pm. We will take the first 24 players ages 16 and up who wish to play and meet some of their neighbors. You don't have to be a great player, so don't be shy about signing up. We will provide Gatorade and water, and there will be several prizes awarded.
To sign up, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will take walk-up players until 9:45 that day if we haven't reached 24 by then. Don't put it off and miss the fun.

Following are new pool hours effective with the start of the school year:
Monday through Friday 9 am to 1 pm and 3 pm to 9 pm
Saturday 10 am to 9 pm
