Lee’s Crossing

Monthly Newsletter                                                                 October  2011






Dear Neighbors,


I hope this letter finds you and your family well and enjoying the start of the fall season. 


The pool closing already seems so long ago, but I want to thank the Social Committee for their work arranging and hosting the closing party.  With the Labor Day weekend rainout, they adjusted their personal schedules to make the party happen the following weekend.  I hope everyone who attended had a good time.  Thank you again to Rachael and Richard Hunter, Beth and Joe Garrett, Debbie and Kevin Brown, Dianne and Terry Ryan, plus other volunteers. 


I don’t have any additional updates or news to report this month so I will leave you to enjoy our great fall season.  Have a happy Halloween!


As always, if you should ever have any comments or concerns, please do not hesitate to call me. My home phone number is (770) 499-9354.


Brad Herr

LCHA President
