Lee’s Crossing

Monthly Newsletter                                                              August 2007





From the President…



For many of us Summer as we know it ends next week as our kids return to school.  It goes so quickly!  I hope everyone had a great summer and will have stories to share at our end of summer pool party over the Labor Day Weekend.


Since kids will be back in school lets all be conscious of our Speed Limit in the neighborhood – it still remains 25 MPH.  Let’s keep our kids safe!


Over the last couple of months I have received several complaints about unleashed dogs and dog messes found in yards and on the sidewalks.  The City of Marietta has a leash law that requires all dogs to be under control of a leash or fenced in at all times.  Please help keep our neighbors safe, especially, with school starting, we do not want kids to be put in unsafe situations.


As we close in on the end of summer, we will have several social opportunities for the neighborhood.  I ask that you make plans to attend and greet your neighbors, welcome newcomers and share stories.


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




Best Regards,






Around the Neighborhood

THINK “BARGAINS & GIFTS” (birthday, Christmas, anniversary, etc.)






    I am one of your neighbors and I run a full scale dance program out of two local churches.  First United Methodist Church of Marietta and McEachern Memorial Methodist in Powder Springs.  Both churches have beautiful, fully equipped dance studios and we offer a variety of dance classes for ages 3-adult for boys and girls.  Tap, classical ballet, lyrical ballet, jazz, hip/hop, ballet pilates and more.  We hope to offer some couple classes in the fall, including ballroom, East coast Swing, and Latin.  If you are looking for a low-pressure dance environment, great exercise and loads of fun, look no further! 


            The season begins September 4th and runs through May.  Classes are held weekly, 1 hour in length, held in the church dance studios.  There is a wide selection of class times offered for the younger children (ages 3-8) at each church, but they do fill up.  We have a wonderful recital at the end of the year to showcase all we have learned.  (Adults – Don’t panic!  We will not make you dance on stage unless you want to.)     



Call me with any questions you may have about the program.  Visit my website at www.thespiritofdance.com for detailed information, schedules and registration information about each of the churches.  

Your Neighbor,

Lisa O’Sullivan/678-522-3233







I still have openings in my summer dance camp August 6-11 at McEachern Methodist for ages 3-7.  “Dancing Around the World”  We visit a different country each day, M-F, 9-1, and we have a blast!  Call me for info.

Expanded State Watering Ban


The following is from the City of Marietta’s website:


Declared Drought Response Level Two

The city of Marietta is requesting residents and businesses observe water restrictions set by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources that ban outdoor water use from 10 a.m. to midnight Saturdays through Thursdays. No outdoor water use is permitted on Fridays. Outdoor water use is allowed during non-banned hours on scheduled days as follows:

Monday, Wednesday and Saturday: even numbered or unnumbered addresses may water from 12:01 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. only.

Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday: odd numbered addresses may water from 12:01 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. only.

Marietta Water will strictly enforce the restrictions. Warnings are issued for a first offense. Subsequent offenses result in escalating fines for each offense up to $500, water service disconnection and prosecution.

This month’s feature:


Have you considered updating your kitchen before the upcoming holidays? I have done that with five homes here in Lee’s Crossing recently! We at Crowe Custom Countertops, have been designing and installing Granite, Quartz, Stilestone, Marble and other countertop materials for over 6 years in the Marietta area. We also carry a complete line of sinks, 20 in stock Granite colors at our Acworth factory and showroom. Ask your neighbors, the Bares, the Hesters, the Newtons, the Quigleys, and the Wilsons about our quality, service and prices! We beat the “Big Stores” and others with our lower prices, quicker installation time and quality service. Please call me, Bill Dickman, at 404-992-2610 to get a free estimate, and, if you want to, see our kitchen at 564 Trailwood Lane, that Crowe Custom Countertops did 3 years ago! Also go to my web site www.BillDickman.com for more information. Granite prices have come down; you might be surprised at how economically you can update and beautify your kitchen!
