Lee’s Crossing

Monthly Newsletter                                                          September 2006


From the President…


Fall is upon us as school is back in session and football season starts in earnest the first of September.  It will not be long until we see a return to cool evenings.  Make sure to get out and enjoy the outdoors during this time of year.


Our Interior Design team for the new clubhouse has been hard at work this summer developing a design for our kitchen renovation.  I want to thank Joyce Caldwell, Evelyn Akin, Ann Fitzgerald, Judie Ebert and Beth Pfeiffer for the work they put into designing a functional space for our new clubhouse. We will all be pleased.  Renovations will include new cabinets, the addition of an electric range and oven, a microwave, granite countertops and expanded work and serving areas.  Work will begin in early September and should be completed in early October.


A “new look” in the old clubhouse.


You might notice some work has started on the new Manning property development.  Orange barricade fencing has been put in place around areas not to be disturbed during construction, mostly areas around the existing home and the area behind the Lee’s Crossing front entrance sign.  A recent update from the developer said the developments have been named – the large development adjacent to Lee’s Crossing will be named Rockford Township and the smaller development across the street will be Rockford Commons.  The developer expects work to begin on Rockford Commons in about 30 days.


The Board has called a Homeowner’s Forum for Thursday, October 12th in the clubhouse at 7:30 PM.  The preliminary 2007 LCHA budget will be reviewed, and there will be a time to address concerns and issues of homeowners.  I encourage each homeowner to mark your calendar and plan on attending to be informed about the activities in your community.


As always, I welcome your input and comments.

Social News





Get ready for tennis round robin in the morning (see below for details) followed by poolside cookout around noon.  We'll have burgers, dogs, beer, wine, soft drinks, and music.  We’ll also have a volleyball tournament starting around 3:00.  You can form your own team or just show up.  Bring your energy as well as your hunger and thirst...they will all be satisfied!




As part of Labor Day festivities we are going to hold a tennis mixer from 10am to 12pm.  We will take the first 24 players ages 16 and up who wish to play and meet some of their neighbors.  You don't have to be a great player, so don't be shy about signing up.  We will provide Gatorade and water, and there will be several prizes awarded.



To sign up, please send an email to gordon.pfeiffer@comcast.net.  We will take walk up players until 9:45 that day if we haven't reached 24 by then.  Don't put it off and miss the fun.





From Our Social Director…


Hi there neighbors, we're done with the summer and into the next season.  I always meet so many new residents during the summer.  Please find ways to reach out and chip in around Lee's Crossing.  If you're new and want to meet more people or help out...there's always a need.  It seems most of us figure someone else is handling it.  Often, it's the same dedicated folks that have been doing it for years.  Chip in!  You could help with a social function, be on the Board, help with tennis, help with the newsletter, or help decorate front entrance at Christmas.  Get involved...it's fun and very appreciated.   I want to say thank you to all of you who've helped me with social functions this year.  It really is a group effort and spreads the responsibilities so no one burns out.  Just wait till you see!


I write this before the Labor Day party, but I'm confident it'll be a great success!  Sandy Wilson and Suzie McClure are doing everything to organize and cook for this party.  Please tell them thank you!  I thank you immensely!


The Pfeiffers organized the tennis mixer...what fun!  Shall we do another one in the spring?  Talk to Beth or Gordon.


Beth Garrett rallies all to volleyball.  Who misses more regular volleyball?  Talk to Beth.


Look forward to the Halloween parade (probably on Sunday, October 29th in the afternoon).  Last year was fun....very creative kids!


PREPARE FOR NEW YEAR'S EVE PARTY!!  Last year was so wonderful.  Beth Garrett hopes to bring components of that success here to our beautiful, big new clubhouse.  I hope to have live music again (maybe even the same band), plus our own bar and a mock casino night with fabulous prizes.  If you'll have friends or family with you,  invite them.  THIS WILL BE THE

BEST NEW YEAR'S EVE PARTY AT THE BEST PRICE IN TOWN.  (And you can walk home!!)  Seats will be limited.




Janet, thank YOU for all you do to make the social events happen!!



Neighborhood Directory


It is time for a new neighborhood directory.  In early September, you should receive an "information sheet" which lists the data we have from your home.  You can make any corrections for the new directory and then send it back.  Instructions will be on the sheet, and it will also serve as an order form even if all of the data is correct.  Send an email to leescrossing@comcast.net if you don't have one by September 15th.

I'm Janet Duncan (yes I'm still your neighborhood Social Director).  After 7 years of working mostly as a fill-in chiropractor, I'm starting back to building up another chiropractic practice.  I've worked in the busiest family/pediatric practice in North Georgia for the past 5 years and am very excited to use my skills for my own patients.  I definitely felt a calling to be a chiropractor 14 years ago when I moved here to attend Life University.  I've been blessed to be home with my young ones as much as I have.  Now that my youngest is in full-time preschool, God's calling me to gear it up again by reaching out.  I'm eager to speak to groups, clubs, schools, peers about chiropractic health and spinal hygiene, or help out during a health fair or offer screenings.  Below is a coupon you can use to discount your first visit for yourself, your child or a friend.  I'm thrilled to be building my practice out of Sandy Plains Chiropractic. It's close and the other doctor has great skill and genuine care for his patients as well.  The clinic has a massage therapist on staff as well as special tables and other new technologies to help with acute and chronic conditions.  A nice bonus is the clinic is also in network with many insurance companies.



($175 VALUE and your out of pocket expense: only $50)  expires 10/15/06

Includes:  Initial consultation

                  Exam and Surface EMG (a safe, pain-free tool used to check muscle activity around the spine.)

                  Thermal Scan (a safe, pain-free tool used to check autonomic nerve involvement around the spine.)

                  Up to 2 Xrays (if needed) and Report of Findings with the doctor.


Give yourself and your loved ones a gift of health.  Discover family wellness through chiropractic!

I Recommend……


This is your opportunity to recommend a business to your neighbors.  If you know of someone that does a good job, please send us a SHORT testimonial that we can share.


Co-operative Exterminating has donated pest and termite control services for our clubhouse for a number of years. Co-operative is owned by our good Lee's Crossing neighbors, Yvonne and Rick Caddell.  It has been in business for over 35 years and is located at 717 Washington Avenue in Marietta - 770 427-4292.


Bill Dickman, at 564 Trailwood Lane, recently had his home exterior painted by Ocampo Painting 678-594-7070. "Felipe Ocampo (Owner and Lee's Crossing resident), and his crew did a fantastic job; were extremely detail oriented; kept on schedule and always cleaned up thoroughly and the end of each day! I received bids from two other Cobb County Approved Painting Companies; Ocampo was significantly lower, using the same high quality paints, glazing and caulking."


Bill also recommends D & D Appliances 770-516-0367 for installation & repair.
