Lee’s Crossing

Monthly Newsletter                                                                  August  2012




Dear Neighbors,


The heat goes on…   I hope you are all having a great summer.   It is hard to believe that the new school year is about to start.  This will mean a lot more traffic and school buses going through the neighborhood in the morning.  


The Board members and I want to thank Dianne and Terry Ryan one last time.  Unfortunately for us, but good for them, they are moving back to California in August.  This move has been in their plans for a while now and they are very much looking forward to getting back to Ca.  We all greatly appreciate all they have done to get the Lee’s Crossing landscaping under control.  The improvements at the front entrance with the new plantings and flower beds have made Lee’s Crossing an inviting place to enter. Dianne also oversaw the painting of the clubhouse this year -which turned out fantastic!    I know many have stopped to compliment Dianne on the work she has done and that is very much appreciated.  We will miss them very much.


I want to pass on to everyone that on Aug 13th CSX will be closing the Whitlock railroad crossing going into the Square.  They will be repairing the crossing, and hopefully smoothing it out so that it is much easier to cross the tracks. 


Please be safe with school starting up.  I wish all our students well and hope they have a great year!

Stay cool and don’t hesitate to contact me or any Board member.  You can also send a note to Leescrossing@comcast.net with any questions you may have.

Hunting and Firearms in Georgia


Did you know that to hunt unsupervised in Georgia you must have passed the Georgia Hunter Safety course, which is required to buy a license?  That course, taught by state-certified instructors, will be offered free, at our Clubhouse, in August and October of this year.


Stressing firearm safety, this highly successful course will be offered as a two-night session taught by instructors, and a one-night session preceded by the student completing an on-line course. Both types include the Final Exam, proctored by the Instructors.  No functional firearms will be present, and the course is an excellent Firearms Safety course, whether you ever intend to hunt or not.


You must pre-register – The class, which is open to all, has limited seating.  Go on the Internet to: http://georgiawildlife.dnr.state.ga.us for details and free registration.  The student will be asked for their SSAN, to be entered in the State’s secure database.  If further details are desired, contact Ken Lowman at 770-426-8255.



Several residents have inquired about adding Wi-Fi at the clubhouse, and now it is available.  The network name is lcswimtennis, and if you are asked for a password use that same name.  You should be able to connect anywhere in the pool area, the tennis pavilion, or the clubhouse.

A Golden Retriever named "Roxie" is looking for a good home here in Lee's Crossing.   Roxie currently belongs to Golden Retriever Rescue of Atlanta and is fostered by one of your neighbors here in Lee's Crossing. Roxie had belonged to a breeder who retired her to GRRA.com

She is 9yrs old, spaded, in good health, and a sweet gentle dog. She loves to go for walks, especially at Cheatham Hill.  You may even already have a free dog sitter.  Call Rich Dedula  at 678-921-2115 to meet Roxie.

Business Spotlight:


As a long- time resident here in Lee’s Crossing, let me share what I do.  I am the Owner/Director of The Spirit of Dance and am excited to be starting my 9th season of providing quality dance instruction at 4 convenient locations.  We offer weekly classes in multiple genres for all skill levels from ages 2 to ADULT, all in an environment promoting Christian principles.  We produce professionally choreographed Christmas shows and spring recitals to showcase & celebrate the dancer’s effort, and offer a performance troupe called “In His Steps” for the students ages 7 & UP who wish to dedicate more time to the art of dance and showcase their talents through community outreach. We would love to have the opportunity to work with your family.  Please visit our website at www.thespiritofdance.com for  more information & registration forms, or contact me, Lisa O’Sullivan (678-522-3233; lisa@thespiritofdance.com) directly if you prefer.  MENTION THAT YOU’RE A LEE’S CROSSING RESIDENT TO GET YOUR FIRST CLASS FOR FREE!!!!



I Recommend:


Gordon and Beth Pfeiffer would like to recommend two people they have used both recently and in the past.  In both cases, they have done excellent work at very reasonable prices each time we used them.  For both inside and outside painting, call Ospicio Diaz at Kevin's Painting (770-316-1354).  For either vinyl window installation or siding replacement, call Alan Murphy at 770-591-9967.  I guarantee you will be very pleased with the results.


Judy Spurill would like to recommend her friend, Catherine Sanders, to parents and grandparents for teaching social graces for 6th, 7th and 8th grade students.   Catherine aims to see young people in the Marietta community develop the confidence necessary to be comfortable with themselves and others as they interact socially through school, athletics, work and family.   The Social Class will equip them with the social skills necessary to establish and maintain positive personal and professional relationships.  At the end of the course, these students will have learned to set themselves apart as they navigate through an increasingly competitive and every changing culture.  Please check out her website: www.thesocialclass.net for fall class schedules.
