Monthly Newsletter                                                              February 2010








Hello Neighbors! 


I hope this letter finds everyone doing well and enjoying the first part of a great year!


Please remember that the Homes Association assessments are due today.  If you have not mailed your payment yet please do so as soon as possible.


We have had several complaints recently about people not picking up after their dogs.  If you are a dog owner, please be considerate of your neighbors and clean up behind your pet.


In the past month there has been some minor vandalism around the neighborhood.  If you or anyone you know witness anyone committing an act of vandalism please contact me or another board member immediately.


As always, if you should ever have any comments or concerns, please do not hesitate to call me.  My home phone number is (770) 420-3484.  Take care, and I will see you around the neighborhood!




Jim Martin

Tucker McQueen would like to recommend Sue Madison's Pilates Fusion classes.  “I can tell a difference in how I look and feel since I started in October.” The studio is five minutes from Lee's Crossing at Prima Ballet off Whitlock Avenue near the intersection of Burnt Hickory Road.  The Pilates Fusion workout incorporates isometric exercises designed to improve your total body strength, flexibility, balance and posture.
