Lee’s Crossing

Monthly Newsletter                                                                       July 2008




From the President:



Dear Residents,


The Association has terminated our relationship with Community One as property manager. By agreement, the termination was to be effective as of the end of July. Community One just informed us, however, that the person in charge of our account was not going to be available during much of July and asked for a termination as of June 30.


The Association expects to have a new professional manager under contract as of August 1. Our goal is to have thorough and consistent enforcement of the covenants, with prompt attention to communication with residents. We are mindful that the overall objective is to maximize property values and enjoyment of all residents. Until the new manager is on board, please direct your questions and requests for approval to Erroll Eckford, our Director in charge of architectural controls.


Our recent dive in pool party was a great success with approximately 125 residents in attendance. We look forward to additional such evenings. Thanks to Beth Garrett for making the event enjoyable for all.


The Board would like to recognize the recent honor bestowed upon one of our fellow residents. Ed Wilson is an inductee into the Marietta City Schools Athletic Hall of Fame. Eddie was a multi sport athlete at Marietta and went on to a stellar career in football at the University of Tennessee. Eddie is a long time resident of Lee’s Crossing, and he, his wife Trisha and their children live on Parkwind. If you get the chance, please wish them congratulations.


I hope your summer is going well.

Around the Neighborhood



Fourth of July Poolside


Your neighborhood social committee will be sure that the grills at the pool are filled with propane if you want to grill your own. 


We will be providing soda, beer, chips, cookies and watermelon  from 1:00PM through 3:00PM





Be sure to book the clubhouse early for any summer parties you are planning!  Call Debbie Kelleher   at 678 354 7042



Social News

Our first DIVE IN Movie went well!!  About 125 people enjoyed popcorn and socializing poolside while watching National Treasure II on a big movie screen.  What fun!  KEEP YOUR EYE OUT FOR THE NEXT ONE!   Thank you to the Jordans, the Hunters, the Garretts, the Eberts and all those who stuck around to help clean up afterwards!! 


July 4th is coming up, and although we're not providing the meat, we'll have some "fixins" and your drinks.  I encourage you to come grill on your own poolside at lunch that day.  Any social committee members or friendly neighborhood helpers that want to chip in a hand with serving or cleanup are welcome: thanks. 


I've had an opportunity to meet some new neighbors at the pool.  I encourage all the seasoned Lee's crossing friends to reach out to individuals or couples that seem to be alone at an event or the pool and introduce yourselves...they may be newbies!!  Lets help everyone feel welcome.


Lost Cat – Reward!


Please help us find our lost family member, “Butters”. He is an orange tabby (orange stripes) with yellow eyes, and is declawed (front paws).  Please check about your home if you have areas (fences, decks, basements, playhouses) that a curious cat may wander into.  He likes to play with water and is friendly but shy. Our pet recovery expert indicates that there is no evidence of a coyote attack, so please don’t give up! Please call Marilyn anytime 24/7 at 404-932-0799 or 770-429-0668 if you have seen him.                                                       There is a SUBSTANTIAL REWARD if you find him.

From George and Cathy Turner

As a Lee Crossing homeowner for 23 years, we have had our share of service companies perform various tasks with various results; as I am sure any homeowner can understand; good help can be hard to find.

This past March our home suffered storm damage from a fallen tree limb.  The damage was extensive and our homeowner’s insurance was faithful (ALLSTATE).  However, this letter is to recognize the service company that met our ever need. By the way, the company owner is a resident as well.

From our first meeting, they kept their word. We could always rely on them to return phone calls, make reasonable bids and prepare insurance requests. The workers were always trustworthy and mannerly, but most of all, they completed the main jobs in a timely manner. Our satisfaction was of the utmost importance. So often relationships in the service industry start properly, but end less than satisfactorily.


From the beginning, Ocampo Painting and More made every effort to transform an arduous ordeal into a simple act of returning our damaged home back to its cherished state. I believe in giving credit where credit is due, and I owe Ocampo Painting and More an abundance of gratitude.
