Lee’s Crossing

Monthly Newsletter                                                                   July 2006



From the President…




It appears summer is in full swing – the pool is full of swimmers, the new clubhouse addition is frequently in use, the rains have slacked off and Wednesday evenings are busy with swim meets.  I hope everyone is enjoying!


Congratulations to our Lee’s Crossing Cyclones Swim team, who have done quite well this season in spite of moving up a level.  Keep up the good work!


Text Box:

In the middle of all this fun activity, we do have some civic responsibility with upcoming General Primary Elections on Tuesday, July 18th.  Our subdivision votes at Marietta High School and votes for representatives in U.S Congress District 011, Georgia Senate District 033 and Georgia House District 038.  This election also includes races for Governor, Lt. Governor and many other local and state positions.  For information and a sample copy of the Republican and Democratic ballots go to www.cobbelections.org.  Exercise your right to vote!


The Board has received several calls about barking dogs.  Let me remind all residents that local ordinances define a nuisance as any barking, howling or other disturbance extending for more than 15 minutes.  Let’s all be conscientious and control our pets.


Though it may be dry, please be mindful of the watering restrictions in place for the City of Marietta.  Make sure you know the times and days you can use outside watering on your property.  (Specifics on watering restrictions may be found later in the newsletter.)


In closing, Debbie Kelleher has been selected as the new Clubhouse Manager to replace Minnie Follrath.  Debbie will assume her responsibilities on July 1st and may be contacted at (678) 354-7042 for all issues related to the clubhouse and clubhouse rentals.  Again, thank you to Minnie for service in this capacity.


As always, I welcome your input and comments.

Outdoor water use restrictions in effect in Marietta

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 4 p.m. 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. and from 4:01 p.m. until midnight.
Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday:  odd numbered addresses may water from 12:01 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. and from 4:01 p.m. until midnight.

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.

For more information, call 770-794-5229.


A Not So Gentle Reminder…


It seems that those of us who walk around the neighborhood have had to dodge to many piles of “dog business” lately.  Please be courteous of others and clean up after your pets.  (A couple of plastic garbage bags will work – one as a glove and one as a depository.)  Remember, the definition of “clean up” is to remove the mess, not conceal it.

Being Neighborly


This section is dedicated to helping each of us in Lee’s Crossing get to know our neighbors a little better.  Many of you are independent business people or work for companies that others of us would be interested in supporting – we just need to know about what you do and how to get in touch with you. 


If you would like to advertise your business, please send us a BRIEF paragraph giving pertinent information about your company along with contact information.  Submissions will be drawn at random for publication each month, based on space.  Competitors will not be published in the same month (i.e. 2 lawn services, 2 accountants, etc).  Send your information to leescrossing@comcast.net.




This month’s features:


Charles West has been writing historical western fiction for the Penguin Group for many years and his novels can be found anywhere books are sold or over the internet. His website is www.charlesgwest.com.


Portraits by Ronda.   I do charcoal portraits taken from favorite photos. One favorite I do is a mother or father at three or four different ages.  Mom and Dad together is a great idea for an anniversary. Or three generations in a family. The ideas are endless. Please check out my website at www.portraitsbyronda.com to see the kind of product I offer or to request a brochure. My home phone number is 678-354-4068. Just ask for Ronda.

Swim Team News        


The Cyclones had a very successful season this year with two victories and two losses.  One of our losses was only by six points!  The swimmers and coaches worked very hard this year at practice as we moved into a tougher division and their hard work has obviously paid off.  Thanks also to all the parents and volunteers who make this endeavor possible.


Our team party will be held at the pool on Thursday August 3rd from 6pm to 9pm.  A note to residents, the pool will close at 5pm and be open to swim team members only for the event. 





Deadline for submissions for the August Newsletter is July 25.  Please send newsletter information to leeescrossing@comcast.net.  For on-line edition, go to www.leescrossingmariettaga.com
