Lee’s Crossing Cyclones
This year’s swim team is looking strong. Almost 100 swimmers have registered – and we are hoping for a few more. While the majority of the team is made up of returning swimmers, we have quite a number of new participants. A couple of age groups are full! But we would like to add swimmers in some groups – specifically 5 & 6 year olds (both boys and girls), 9 & 10 (boys only), 13 & 14 (boys), and 15 – 18 (girls). If you or any friends or relatives have any swimmers who might like to join us please have them get in touch with me.
Our team will be participating in five meets – three meets will be held here in Lee’s Crossing. In order to accommodate our home meets the pool will be closing at 4 pm on the following Mondays: June 7th, June 21st, and June 28th. Feel free to stop by and check out the action! In addition, we will be holding our End-of-Season Party on Tuesday June 29th – the pool will only be open to Swim Team participants and their families beginning at 5pm.

Hello Lees Crossing Residents,
I am on the charity committee for my Keller Williams Realty
DONATIONS FOR CLUBHOUSE “BEAUTIFICATION”
The Leesure Ladies’ Group has taken on the project of improving the interior of our clubhouse to be more inviting and feel more like a “home” environment. Spring is here and everyone will be cleaning out their homes and attics. Please look over your extra things before donating to a charity and consider donating them instead to our project. We will be glad to take a look at your donations and find them a home in our clubhouse for everyone to enjoy. We are especially in need of silk flower arrangements for our two mantels, silk trees for the bay window in front and appropriately framed pictures. You can contact Dianne Ryan (770-499-7863) to donate and we will glad to come take a look.
Be sure to book the clubhouse early for any events you are planning! Call Adrienne Lemoine at 770-428-5184.
