Lee’s Crossing

Monthly Newsletter                                                              July 2007


From the President…



It appears summer is in full swing throughout the neighborhood – the pool is full of swimmers, people are out walking and it’s dry!  So while you are out and about, greet your neighbors or ask a friend to the July 4th pool party.


The Lee’s Crossing Swim Team completed another fun year of swimming.  Thanks to Adrienne Lemoine, Susan Herr and all the coaches for another successful year of leadership, as it appears all the kids enjoyed themselves.


A few reminders:

·    In a few weeks the City of Marietta will be working to clear a drain pipe for a creek under Lee’s Trace.  Most of the debris has traveled from upstream.  Please, if you live adjacent to a creek, avoid dumping or allowing trash to build up in or near the water.

·    It is dry, but please observe the outside watering ban in effect.  Even number addresses may water midnight to 10:00 AM on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday.  Odd addresses may water on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday.  I know enforcement has made a number of citations in the neighborhood.


Enjoy your summer!


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


Best Regards,




Around the Neighborhood







After the parade on the square, but well before the fireworks:

COME COOL OFF POOLSIDE AND ENJOY FREE Hamburgers, Hot dogs beer, soda, and games.  DJ will be there to keep it festive.  Come mingle with friends and meet new neighbors!




We are going to start playing volleyball in the neighborhood again! 

SUNDAY 6/24 3pm until 6pm

Come to the volleyball court, located between the pool and the tennis courts this Sunday.

We will: PLAY and SIGN up on a team for league play from July 14th - Aug 5th

BRING your own drinks and/or appetizer to share if you'd like. Also, if you'd like to eat dinner afterwards, bring a picnic for you and your family.  The grills will be available.  Please email Beth Garrett at bgarrett@lovett.org or call 770-425-8970 if you have any questions.




If you have lost anything at the pool please check the lost and found barrel by the gate.  All items left in the lost and found will be donated to MUST Ministries on the 15th of July.



Ladies Summer Book Club                  


The ladies of First Baptist Church of Marietta are having a Summer Book Club at the Lee’s Crossing Clubhouse, and we would love for you to join us!  This is our second annual summer book club, and we had so much fun last year that we can’t wait to get started again.


This summer, we will be reading A Lineage of Grace by Francine Rivers, a collection of five novellas telling the stories of the women listed in the lineage of Jesus:  Tamar, Rahab, Ruth, Bathsheba, and Mary.  These are fictionalized accounts based on the Biblical scriptures with a powerful message of grace throughout.  We will be meeting on four Tuesdays this summer (June 5th, June 26th, July 10th, and July 24th) at 7pm in the Lee’s Crossing clubhouse.  Our books have to be ordered from out of the country, so we have to order them by May 5th or so to get them back in time for our first meeting.  Childcare is available by reservation.  For more information or to register, please contact Karla Jacobs at 770-428-4739 or karlajacobs@aol.com.








Calling All Scrapbookers, Stampers and Crafters...


On the second Friday of each month, the Lee's Crossing Clubhouse will be open for you to come down and have some time to work on your favorite crafting past time.  Tables and chairs will be set up, all you need to bring are the items you need to work with and a snack and beverage.  You can also bring a friend!


Clubhouse will be open from 7pm until the last person leaves.


If you have any questions, please call Debbie Brown at 770-528-9094.









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.

For more information, call 770-794-5229.


Mailbox Post Cleaning and Painting


Our neighbor, Walter Dean, has graciously volunteered to clean and paint the mailbox post of anyone in Lee’s Crossing who needs this work done.  This is a no charge service.  If you would like to schedule a time for Walter to do this work at your home, please call him at 404-862-3895.




Newsletter by E-Mail


Quite a few of us have signed up to receive the newsletter via e-mail.  If you haven’t done so, please consider a few advantages.  Getting the newsletter via e-mail not only saves money for the HOA, but also saves paper.  You will also get the e-mail version earlier than the paper version (depending on editor/stringer schedules, maybe several days earlier).  Having a mostly e-mail distribution allows a later cut-off date for articles and also allows events the first couple of days of the month to be included in the current newsletter.  Please consider signing up for e-mail delivery.  Send your request to leescrossing@comcast.net.


For those of you who are already signed up for e-mail distribution – if your e-mail address changes, please make sure to notify us!

I Recommend……


This is your opportunity to recommend a business to your neighbors.  If you know of someone that does a good job, please send us a SHORT testimonial that we can share.


Sarah Donehoo would like to recommend Bess West (H - 770-977-9971/C - 404-234-6986) for painting and wallpapering.  She also does tile work and sheetrock repair.  Bess is careful about covering everything  before she paints and cleans up well  when finished.  She has used Bess for this type work since 1997 and has always been pleased with her work.


The Childress family at 680 Trailwood Lane would like to recommend Academy Roofing.  Our house had roof damage from the April hail storm and was totaled by our insurance company as were the roofs of several other homes on our street and behind us on Briarmeade.  Academy did a clean, quick, and beautiful job.  Call Joe Garrett with Academy (our own neighbor on Chestnut Hill) to take a look at your roof.  We had no idea we had that kind of damage. Contact Joe at 404-944-0579 or jgarrett@theroofingprofessor.com.
