Lee’s Crossing

Monthly Newsletter                                                            September 2007





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 will see a return to cool evenings.  Make sure to get out and enjoy the outdoors during this time of year.


Unfortunately, this week I received notice from the Postmaster that no longer allows the LCHA to distribute our newsletter in your mailbox without proper postage.  Because of the expense associated with mailing a monthly newsletter to 400 + homes, the newsletter will be made available via email, on our website (leescrossingmariettaga.com) or a box at the entrance.  Key editions of the newsletter requiring distribution to all residents will be mailed.  Your best alternative will be to receive the newsletter via email.  Currently, we have approximately 125 residents receiving their newsletter via email.  Send your email address to leescrossing@comcast.net to start receiving your newsletter.


Recently, I had communication with the developer of the Manning properties about the status of the development.  They have slowed their progress slightly to match demand with the market.  We should see construction begin across the street before year end.  The variance notifications posted are to obtain city council approval for gated entrances.


Enjoy your fall!


As always, if you have questions or comments, please give me a call.



Best Regards,






Around the Neighborhood


On August 6 there was a car break-in at a home on Briarmeade.   The car window was smashed and a laptop case, wallet, checkbook, cash, and other items were taken.   The car was locked and parked five feet or so from the front door.


While this is a rare occurrence in our neighborhood, each of us needs to watch out for people who either do not belong in the neighborhood or are in a place they shouldn’t be.  Please be careful to lock your car (and home) doors and do not leave anything of value in plain sight.




Thank You


I would like to thank my neighbors Jane Plage and William, Catherine, Charlotte, and David Hettrich for their kindness in assisting me with much needed and appreciated items that I took during my visit to Walter Reed Medical Center  (WRMC) in Washington DC on July 24th. My fellow coworkers from Delta Air Lines had also collected items from their friends and neighbors that patients requested to help during their long extended stay.


For me it was a very humbling and memorable experience to visit the injured servicemen and women who have returned from the Iraq and Afghanistan War because, as a flight attendant, I have flown them to Kuwait and points beyond, and, on occasion, brought them home on their return from duty. So it was coming full circle to visit those recovering at  WRMC.  I thank you from the bottom of my heart and I know your generosity made a difference in these special people's lives.    Cheryl Harcharic





Calling All Scrapbookers, Stampers and Crafters...


On the second Friday of each month, the Lee's Crossing Clubhouse will be open for you to come down and have some time to work on your favorite crafting past time.  Tables and chairs will be set up, all you need to bring are the items you need to work with and a snack and beverage.  You can also bring a friend!

Expanded State Watering Ban


The following is from the City of Marietta’s website:


Declared Drought Response Level Two

The city of Marietta is requesting residents and businesses observe water restrictions set by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources that ban outdoor water use from 10 a.m. to midnight Saturdays through Thursdays. No outdoor water use is permitted on Fridays. Outdoor water use is allowed during non-banned hours on scheduled days as follows:
