Welcome New Neighbors

We welcome the following family to the neighborhood:

Drew, Lynn, Daniel, Ryan, Anna, Whitney, and Elizabeth Fitzpatrick     540 Basil Court




Did you know:  Every 2 days – 960 women are informed they have breast cancer. Every 2 days – 220 women will die from breast cancer. Every 2 days – 5,478 women's breast cancer will go undiagnosed. Every 2 days – 8 men will learn they have breast cancer.

I am a neighbor and senior in Nursing School at Emory University. I have learned a great deal about cancer and I have cared for many patients diagnosed with cancer. Because of this I have set a personal goal to walk the 30 miles in the 2009 Atlanta 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer October 3-4. I have to raise $1000 in order to participate in the walk and I am hoping that you will make a donation to help me reach my goal.


To make a donation, go to my personal donation page: http://itsthejourney.kintera.org/anna .  Donations can be made by using a credit card or debit card on-line, or if you would rather not donate online, you can send me a check or cash or just print out the form found on my personal page and mail it in.

Thank you so much for your support!

Attention Pet Owners

From a Neighbor

This is a plea to the people who do not clean up after their dogs while walking them in the neighborhood.  This is so inconsiderate and I am asking you to please start carrying a plastic bag with you and clean up after your pet.  My yard is littered with other people’s dog poop.  I don’t know if this is from dogs being let out at night on their on or people walking their dogs and not cleaning it up but, either way, it is very unsanitary and so rude. I have given up trying to walk my dog in the area next to the tennis courts because that is also littered with dog poop.  Show some respect and clean up after your pets, please. And for those who let your dogs run at night, not only are you being inconsiderate but you are putting your pet in danger.



THURSDAY LADIES B6 ALTA TEAM is looking for players.  If you are interested or know of someone who may be interested, please call Diane Edwards at 770-575-0445.

I Recommend……


Tom Klein says “Based upon a recommendation in the June Newsletter, I called upon Tony Kabchef (kabchefpc@bellsouth.net/770-426-7208) to rid my PC of an operating problem.  Just as the previous writer suggested, he is a skilled individual and was able to put my machine on the right track.  It runs better now than when it was new.  Thank you for the tip, neighbor!”
