From the President
Hello Neighbors! I hope this letter finds everyone doing well and enjoying a beautiful spring.
Just a couple of quick reminders. First, school will be out for the summer in a few weeks. Please remember to use extra caution when driving through the neighborhood because children will be everywhere. Second, the pool will open on Saturday May 23. We look forward to seeing everyone down at the pool to enjoy games, ice cold beverages and Phil Wooten’s famous barbeque!
Have a great May and, as always, if you should ever have any comments or concerns please do not hesitate to call me. My home phone number is (770) 420-3484. Take care, and I will see you around the neighborhood!

Lee’s Crossing Cyclones Swim Team
Registration for the 2009 Lee’s Crossing Cyclones Swim Team has been huge success. We have lots of returning swimmers along with a fair number of new participants. I have been contacted by several others about possibly joining and I would encourage you to do so soon. We currently have openings in all age groups, but some are filling up.
Practices will start in mid-May*. The schedule for those first two weeks is as follows:
M/W 4:30-5:00 – 6 & under’s T/Th 4:30-5:00 9&10’s
5:00-5:30 – 7 & 8’s 5:00-5:30 11 & up’s
* Specific start day information will be sent out via email to team members.
Our meets will be held on Thursday nights this year. We will be at home on June 4th and 18th – for those of you not participating this means the pool will close early these days, but if you have never seen the team in action feel free to stop by and check us out!
