Lee’s Crossing

Monthly Newsletter                                                                    March 2012

 

 

 Dear Neighbors,

 

I hope you are all doing well so far this year.  It looks like we are getting off easy this winter with only few weeks to go before we get to spring.

 

We have much needed painting going on at the clubhouse along with some minor construction.  The addition of French doors entering into the kitchen from the entry way will allow for access to the restrooms for the tennis players while restricting open access to the kitchen.  Combination locks are also being installed to simplify access for renters by not having to hand out keys.   I want to thank Diane Ryan for getting painting estimates and overseeing the work Ocampo Painting is doing for us.  

 

We still have plans to remove the current trash enclosure at the clubhouse.  It will be replaced with a better designed enclosure placed at the south end of the parking lot and will be screened from the residents with appropriate shrubs.   The plan is to get this work dome before the pool season starts. This work has taken longer than we had hoped, so my apologies to the neighbors for that.

 

I had hoped hear back from the City by now regarding when several streets in the neighborhood are going to be resurfaced.  Hopefully, I will have that information by the next newsletter.

 

Board election results will be finalized and positions will be set for the year at the March meeting. 

 

Don’t hesitate to contact me or send a note to Leescrossing@comcast.net with any questions you may have.

 

Be healthy and safe and I will see you around the neighborhood.

Lee’s Crossing Cyclones

Swim Team

 

Winter?  When was that?  I am sure everyone is ready to swim!  Registration for the 2012 Swim Team will be held at the clubhouse on Monday April 9th from 4:30 to 7 pm.  New participants, from 5 to 18 years of age (as of June 1st), are always welcome.  The cost is just $25 per swimmer for those living in the neighborhood and $75 per swimmer for those outside of Lee’s Crossing.

 

The team suit will be new this year – swimmers are welcome to wear a previous design - if you are in need, suits will be available for purchased at registration.

 

After school practices will begin Monday May 14th.  Morning practices will begin Tuesday May 29th.  Based on the county’s rotating schedule our meets will be held on Wednesday evenings this year.

 

Parent support is required!   It is mandatory for parents to work at least one full meet or two half meets.  Many work much more and their efforts are greatly appreciated!!

 

Registration packets – including more information about practice and meet schedules will be emailed out to last year’s team.  This information will also be available at registration.

 

If you would like to join us please contact me for a packet or further information.

Clubhouse Rentals

If you have any questions or need to book the clubhouse, please call or e-mail Tricia Wilson at 770-428-8144 or triciaww@mindspring.com.  In an effort to keep our Clubhouse clean and in the best condition, the rental deposit has increased to $250.  However, if you return the clubhouse after rental in its best condition, the entire deposit will be returned.

 

 

 

 

Scouting for Food

 

We have two scout troops that will be “Scouting for Food” in our neighborhood this month, one at the beginning of the month and the other in the middle of the month.  Please support both of these troops as they help those in our area that are less fortunate.

 

Troop 144 will be Scouting for Food -- On Sat. March 3rd, Boy Scouts will be placing plastic bags on the doors in Lee's Crossing.  They will collect any non-perishable food items that you place in the bag the following Sat. beginning at 9:00 A.M.  These items will be delivered to a local food bank.  There will also be an order form for pine straw if you would like to get your Spring supply through the Scouts and help send them to summer camp.  Thank you in advance for your donations.  We collected nearly 500 items of food in Lee's Crossing last year and the Troop and food bank were greatly appreciative of your generosity.  If you have any questions, you may call Diane Edwards at 770-575-0445.

 

 

TROOP 252 will be SCOUTING FOR FOOD in Lee’s Crossing!  The scouts will leave donation bags at your door on March 17th or 18th.  Please consider showing your love to those in need in our community by donating food.  Our scouts will be picking up any generous donations you may have on Saturday March 24th and Sunday March 25th.  Please just leave your bag on the front porch by 9 AM.    

 

All food items will be donated to MUST Ministries, a local food bank.  They are very low on pasta, mac ‘n cheese, flour, baking/muffin mixes and other non-perishables.

 

If you have any questions, feel free to call Bill Eubanks at 404-932-1995.

 

 

 

Annual Neighborhood Yard Sale

 

The annual neighborhood yard sale will be on Saturday, April 28, from 8am to 1pm.

Ads will be placed in the Marietta paper, and signs on Whitlock Avenue will also be put out directing people to Lee's Crossing. Each home having a sale may put out their own signs, but please take them down after the sale. In past years, residents of Lee's Crossing have had a

I Recommend:

Bob and Necia Maynard used Paula Leak to recover all of the cushions on their boat.  The cushions were very oddly shaped and had difficult curves and the fabric was thick.  It was a beautiful job done on time.   They highly recommend her.  Paula may be contacted at 770-794-5868

 

Scott Graham would like to recommend Northmetro Remodeling Inc., C.D. Meekins, owner – (404) 518-2106.  C.D. has done work for my mother, many friends and me over the past 20 years.  He specializes in basement completions, decks, sunrooms, kitchen upgrades, window replacements and all manner of home fix-it projects.  He lives just a few miles away, and when my kitchen flooded last year he arrived within 10 minutes!  He is also very good at finding and correcting roof leaks.  C.D. insists on a clean jobsite and is always dependable.  He is licensed and insured.  Once you use him, you will recommend him to your friends as well.
