Monthly Newsletter March 2009
From the President
Sinclair has informed us that the Manning house is under contract with a local
couple who intend that the home and surrounding land be used as their personal
residence and passed down to their children. It is good news for
A variety of issues with weather and the asphalt plant have scuttled several paving dates, but the much needed parking lot paving should be done in the first half of March. Also, as most of you have no doubt noticed, the paving at the front entrance was completed by CW Matthews (at City expense) in the last week.
Attached to our newsletter is another advisory article from Genesis landscaping regarding appropriate landscaping chores for this time of year. I hope this is helpful.
Thanks again for those residents who made things go smoothly for the Association this year. These people manage and coach our swim team; collect, maintain and report our finances; attend public meetings on our behalf, publish our newsletter (thanks, Angelia); plan and execute a variety of social events; greet new residents; and keep your Board and Officers on our toes. Lastly, thanks to the other Board members who give their time so selflessly.
The next few months will bring the arrival of spring ALTA tennis, the start of the swim team season, the conversion of the pool to salt water, March madness (see you at the clubhouse), another year of graduation parties at the clubhouse, the neighborhood garage sale and the annual opening weekend barbeque at the pool.
Look forward to seeing you this spring.

Lee’s Crossing Swim Team 2009
It is March and I do not know about you but I am ready to start thinking about warmer weather. Registration for the neighborhood swim team will be held at the clubhouse on Monday, April 13th from to
Additional information will be available – including our schedule (i.e. which evenings we will be swimming) after the county meeting being held March 11th. We are planning to post all necessary information and registration forms on our website after this meeting – I will send an email when this is available.
For returning swimmers we will be wearing last year’s suit but if you need a new suit they will be available for purchase at registration.
Anyone not familiar with our program, we are open to swimmers age 5 to 18 (age by June 1st). Practices begin in mid May, after school and continue daily in the mornings after Memorial Day. We swim in five meets, one evening a week, during the month of June. It is mandatory for parents to work at least one full meet or two half meets. For residents of Lee’s Crossing swim team dues are $20. For non-residents dues are $75.
If you have any questions concerning the swim team, feel free to call Susan at 770-499-9354.
Social Committee Planning Meeting
We will have our annual planning meeting to plan out how to spend the budget for social activities for the year. Rachel Hunter has headed up a Bunko night (see article below). We will probably also have our annual Easter egg hunt the Saturday of the week before Easter. Keep your eye out for the sign at the front for details to the egg hunt (and maybe meet the big bunny himself!)
I VERY much want to organize the year and pass off chair to someone else. We've got a great team of volunteers, but always need more and a flow of new helpers to not burn out those of us who always seem to do it all. (That probably would be what the Board says too). Please get involved. Social planning wants you, your Board wants you. We're fortunate to live in a community where we truly do care about the upkeep of our homes and property values, about being a "village" when it comes to rearing healthy, moral kids, and about building lasting community friendships. That's where social planning is helpful. We want all of you to feel "at home"...getting involved certainly makes that happen!
I will have our planning meeting March 19th at 7pm at my house:
LADIES LADIES LADIES!
We are trying to get together a Bunko group in the neighborhood that will meet once a month at the clubhouse. This will be a great time to socialize and get to know neighbors you may not know. The first Bunko night will be Tuesday, March 24 from 7:00 to 9:00 for some bunko, appetizers, and drinks. Please email Rachael Hunter @ firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested or call her at (678) 643-4186.

Genesis Landscape Group
Springtime approaches! Here are some do’s and don’ts to prepare your landscape.
Perennials such as Daylillies and Hostas propagate so vigorously that they may double and redouble annually and need dividing every three to four years. This is a good time to do so.
existing shrubs while they are dormant and the weather is cool can now be
accomplished with less risk to the plant.
This is also the ideal time for the planting of new trees and shrubs. In both cases, you will need to help Mother
Nature with watering.
Do not fertilize Camellias, Azaleas and other Spring bloomers until after flowering.
This is a good time to aerate your
Plant cool season vegetable transplants.
