Lee’s Crossing

Monthly Newsletter                                                                        May 2008




From the President:



The weather is warm, daylight hours are growing longer and school will be out in less than four weeks. You should expect to see more and more children playing outdoors and for longer hours into the evening. Please drive carefully.


I had a resident ask me about car washing at his residence last week. This is still prohibited -  commercial car washes are exempt.


Outdoor watering of existing landscaping is allowed between midnight and 10 am three days per week - odd addresses on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday and even addresses on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. This watering is limited to 25 minutes per day and is limited to a single hand held hose with an automatic shutoff.  New landscaping can be watered more frequently but only if the homeowner has completed the registration program at www.outdoorwateruse.com.


This does seem to be the time of year when our lawns, weeds and whatever grow tall overnight. Unfortunately, a few of us are still hibernating and our lawns can quickly become eyesores. Please pay attention to your lawn and provide the appropriate maintenance on a timely basis.


Congratulations to our women’s ALTA Thursday tennis team. They not only won their division, they had the highest point total at their level. Good luck in the playoffs.


The pool will open at 10 am on Saturday, May 24. The opening party with barbeque and other sundries will begin at 1:00. Hope to see you there.

Lee’s Crossing Cyclones Swim Team


We had a great response to our open registration.  We currently have about 85 swimmers - and I know of a few more that were unable to make it but still intend to join us.

Having said this, there is still room for additional swimmers.  Specifically we NEED some swimmers in the following age groups:  5 & 6 year old girls, 7 & 8 year old boys, and 15+ year old boys.  If anyone out there knows of swimmers in these age groups please encourage them to join us!


We are planning to begin after school practices on Monday May, 12th (weather permitting).  The schedule for these after school practices is as follows:

Mondays / Wednesdays                                   Tuesdays / Thursdays

5/6:  4:30 – 5:00                                               9/10:  4:30 – 5:00

7/8:  5:00 – 5:30                                               11 & UP:  5:00 – 5:45


Morning Practices will begin on Tuesday May 27th as follows:

7/8:      9:00 – 9:30

9/10:    9:30 – 10:15

11 & up:  10:15 – 11:00


The only home meet we will be hosting will be held on Wednesday June 18th.  The pool will close to the general neighborhood at 4pm that day to allow us time to set up for the meet.


In addition, we will be hosting our End-of-Season Party on June 26th.  The pool will close early on this date also.


If anyone is interested in additional information and/or joining the swim team please contact Susan Herr at sdherr@comcast.net.

If you are planning on buying a Used or New car, Kevin Brown (retired DuPont Auto Paint Exec.), is our “go to” guy in the neighborhood! I started looking for used Corvettes; Kevin brought several cars to my attention, directly from the national car auctions which he attends. Auction prices are what dealers buy at. Additionally, he works with several local and out of state new car dealers, (who were his former customers). He saved me $1000’s over the best deal I could put together, with several area dealers, on a  brand new Corvette, which I bought from a small town Chevy dealer in Alabama that Kevin knew! I would have never found this car and price without Kevin!  It truly is “who you know”, to get the best inside deals!   Call Kevin at 404-386-7317.
