Lee’s Crossing

Monthly Newsletter                                                           September   2012

 

 

 

Dear Neighbors,

 

I hope you are all well and life is going your way.  The school year has started and we are at the end of the pool season.  The pool will close Sept 3rd with the Labor Day Closing Party hosted by the Lee’s Crossing social committee.  Please thank everyone that is involved in supporting these events.  They do a great job making Lee’s Crossing a fun community.

 

I was recently contacted by Amy Reed, the Curator of the Marietta Museum of History.  She has been working with Mary Margaret Manning on the lot in our neighborhood that family lore has said is a slave cemetery.  Amy is has an Archeology/Anthropology student from KSU (Will McKenna) working with on researching historical records, clearing the land and locating the burial plots. Once this is completed, we hope to work with the City of Marietta in officially recognizing and commemorating the site with a historical marker.  Amy is looking to see if there is interest in our neighborhood to assist in clearing the lot to uncover this cemetery. 

 

For those interested in more information, I have arranged a meeting at the clubhouse on Thursday Sept 13th at 7:30pm.  Amy will be there to give a presentation on the project and answer questions anyone may have.  For those that want to take part in this project we will collect contact information. It would be nice if we could get a volunteer to help coordinate the neighborhood residents interested in this project.  I hope there will be a good turnout for the meeting and I look forward to seeing you there.   If you can’t attend the meeting but are interested in the project please send an email to Leescrossing@comcast.net and we will be sure to include you.

 

This is just a friendly reminder for those with dogs - please clean up after them when they do their business while out for a walk.  A few complaints have been made about this along Lee’s Trace and Trailwood streets.  Please take pride in the cleanliness of the neighborhood and respect your neighbors by properly taking care of this.  Thank you.

 

Please continue to drive safe and watching out for kids going to and from school.

 

Don’t hesitate to contact me or any Board member for concerns or questions.  You can also send a note to Leescrossing@comcast.net for questions you may have.

Hunting and Firearms in Georgia

 

Did you know that to hunt unsupervised in Georgia you must have passed the Georgia Hunter Safety course, which is required to buy a license?  That course, taught by state-certified instructors, will be offered free, at our Clubhouse, in August and October of this year.

 

Stressing firearm safety, this highly successful course will be offered as a two-night session taught by instructors, and a one-night session preceded by the student completing an on-line course. Both types include the Final Exam, proctored by the Instructors.  No functional firearms will be present, and the course is an excellent Firearms Safety course, whether you ever intend to hunt or not.

 

You must pre-register – The class, which is open to all, has limited seating.  Go on the Internet to: http://georgiawildlife.dnr.state.ga.us for details and free registration.  The student will be asked for their SSAN, to be entered in the State’s secure database.  If further details are desired, contact Ken Lowman at 770-426-8255.

 

 

Several residents have inquired about adding Wi-Fi at the clubhouse, and now it is available.  The network name is lcswimtennis, and if you are asked for a password use that same name.  You should be able to connect anywhere in the pool area, the tennis pavilion, or the clubhouse.

I Recommend:

 

Tom and Pat Dixon recommend the family owned and operated 3 Amigos Mexican Bar and Grill, 1000 Whitlock Ave (Kroger Shopping Center).  The food is fresh and the guacamole is great!  This restaurant is owned and operated by our neighbors who were the former owner/operators of Jose's that was located in the old Kroger shopping center.   Stop by, say hi and enjoy the food and the atmosphere.

 

Terry and Dianne Ryan would like to refer everyone who might be interested in moving, relocating, downsizing, either their self or a family member to our realtor who sold our home in less than 2 weeks for our expected price, liquidated our things in our entire home so we could downsize into retirement, and got the remainder of stuff not sold picked up the next day by a charity for a large tax deduction.  She handled everything from start to finish in less than 30 days with WONDERFUL results and lots of money in the bank.  Please contact "Your One-Stop Downsizing Resource" and tell her we sent you: Anita Reisinger @ Lifetime Estate Liquidations, LLC and Keller Williams Atlanta North, 770-842-9174, www.lifetimeliquidations.com .  She takes all the pain away from starting over.

 

 

Gordon and Beth Pfeiffer would like to recommend Brett Whitfield for both kitchen and bathroom tile work.  Call 404-788-6488 or go to brettwhitfieldtile.com.
