Lee’s Crossing

Monthly Newsletter                                                                 January 2011






Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!


Marcus, Sam and Willie (the sanitation workers who service our neighborhood) wanted to thank the neighborhood for the generous Christmas gift this year.  Lee’s Crossing’s annual “Dollar on Your Door” fundraiser raised more than $1,153 for these men. Special thanks to Alex Christensen, Chase Evans, Austin Schneiderman, Matt Ebert and Joe Jordan who braved the cold, wet weekend to collect the donations.  Thank you to all for your generosity during the holiday season.

Important Information Regarding Newsletter Submissions


When submitting articles for the newsletter, please either attach to the e-mail as a separate Word document or type the article in the text of your e-mail.  Please DO NOT put a background in the e-mail as that does not copy and sometimes prevents copying of text as well.


In addition, please DO NOT use text boxes in documents as they also make copying documents more difficult.  Feel free to use any clip art you think appropriate for the article.


Please use either leescrossing@comcast.net or  trevathan.angelia@gmail.com for all submissions.

Hi! My name is Tricia Wilson and I have lived in Lee's Crossing for almost 12 years. I will be taking over the clubhouse rentals from Adrienne Lemoine, who has done a fantastic job over the years. My address is 1131 Parkwind Way...right down by the clubhouse, so it will be convenient to pick up and drop off keys! I can either mail you a rental contract, e-mail, or drop it in your mailbox. My telephone # is 770-428-8144 and my e-mail address is triciaww@mindspring.com
