We want your feedback in order to make an even better club! We've setup an online Suggestions Box to funnel membership comments to the Board and the various LBC committees. Go to http://freesuggestionbox.com/pub/xyzvzru and log your comment. An LBC Board member will get in touch with you after reviewing your comment. We're looking forward to hearing from you!
If you did not get a chance to snack at the concession stand this weekend, have no fear! We are up and running and ready to serve you! With a wide variety of offerings, there's something for everyone (Gushers, Ring Pops, Fruit by the Foot and Itti Bitz have just been added to the offering!). Bring a few dollars to your swim time, or have your phone handy for venmo, as you enjoy a treat and support our kids!
Hours will be the same as the pool hours, so don't worry about not being able to get a refreshing drink or tasty snack while you're lounging poolside.
A silver ring. Contact Tom Probst at 470-272-8097 if it might be yours. Also, continue to check our lost and found bin near the barbeques behind the slide.
It is true that many hands make light work. We have an army of volunteers to thank for their help over this past weekend. At varying times we had the assistance of Todd and Abby Mowinski, Todd Stuckey, Ryan Tingle, Steve and Chip Seidenberg, Rachel Blanchard, Chase Ferguson, Randy Randolph, Tom Doolittle, Anne Holland, Brent Holland, Bob Flor, Melanie Clark, Kathy Malloy, Eric, Ellen, and Ariel Schwartz, Jason Smith, Patti Johnson, Margaret Evans, Norma Jaramillo, Jennifer Takeuchi, Don Higginbotham, Wes and LeighAnn Swift, Scott Boehringer, Maria Jefferds and Troy Brown, Amy and John McMillen, Sharon and Steve Robinson and their kids, Nancy Talero, Andrew Carlton, Pam and Alexander Mason, Ashley Kirk, Steve and George Zeliff, Ginger Vento, David Gushee, John and Cooper Ruckart, Mara Maddox, Carey Anderson and her sons, Brad Kesel, Andy Dickerson, and Tom and Gabriela Probst! Whew! Please forgive us if we have left anyone off this list. We accomplished a multitude of tasks, including but not limited to, pressure washing the pool decks, pressure washing the picnic tables, sweeping up trash, pruning the rose bushes, fixing the fans, clearing out construction trash and debris, painting the back deck, installing new toilet seats, installing new umbrella covers, positioning the planters, painting the picnic tables, painting the lifeguard stands, pressure washing the playground, and repairing the playground gate. Anne Sturtevant has graciously agreed to replant the planters as necessary, so look for those to be refreshed in the coming days. All these people really proved that we are a strong community, even in the face of unusual circumstances.
In order to complement our beautiful new facility, we have some projects that require volunteer assistance from club members. This is your chance to help the small group of volunteers who have worked on this project since the beginning.
Saturday, May 30 9am-12pm, and 3pm-6pm
Sunday, May 31, 3pm-6pm
Tasks to be completed:
Pool Deck: Pressure wash, prime, and paint the brown deck.
Playground: Pressure wash equipment and modular flooring
Check in tables: Clean, prep, and paint our two check in tables
Ceiling fans: Replace fan blades
Given that there are three work periods, please use the Sign Up Genius HERE to indicate when you'll be able to come, so that we can balance our work load and volunteer presence.
The Kirk brothers' food drive was a great success! LBC raised $1640 which is equivalent to 6,560 meals. In addition the boys collected two full barrels of food donations that were dropped off to Atlanta Community Food Bank! Many thanks to the LBC Community for supporting their efforts!
A message from Ashley Kirk, member of LBC
We would like to represent BSA Troop 15 in hosting a food and fund drive for the Leslie Beach Club and surrounding community. As you all know, the Coronavirus has had a huge impact on our community and Atlanta as a whole. The financial and health impact has left many in need of food, and the local Atlanta Community Food Bank is in great need of donations. As Scouts we would like to do our part in raising money and donations to help in time of great need.
How can you help?
1. Donate on line to this site. All funds donated online go straight to the food bank.
2. Drop off donations at Leslie Beach. We will be accepting monetary and food/paper good on the following dates:
-Friday April 24, 5-7 pm
-Saturday April 25, 12-2 pm
The following items are shelf stable and needed at the Food Bank:
-Canned fruit and vegetables, canned dried beans, lentils, shelf stable milk
-Canned tuna, chicken or salmon (in water), whole grain pasta or flour, olive or canola oil
-Brown rice, quinoa, natural peanut butter, diapers/toiletries
****NO Glass, Condiments, Pet Food, Nor Baby Food****
Please note that we will be maintaining social distancing with a table set up. All donations can be dropped into well labeled bins. Every little bit of money can help, as just $1 can be turned into 4 meals. We've seen our community come through in the past and we know it can make a great impact. We look forward to seeing you out there.

Dear LBC Members,
Since we are only a few weeks away from what would have been our opening weekend, I wanted to give an update on the status of the club during these unusual times. First of all, see below for an exciting announcement from Ashley Kirk to assist those in need during this crisis; please support Dylan and Jackson Kirk this coming Friday and Saturday. Our Board members, each with committee roles, are hard at work behind the scenes to stay abreast of this ongoing situation. In this newsletter, we would like to inform you of what we know at this time.
Chris Henning, our Pool Chairman, has been working closely with Sweetwater, our pool management company, preparing the pool ready for opening, as well as getting scenario updates on when the pool could possibly open. Jennifer and Kenji Takeuchi have been staying up to date with the Atlanta tennis community and their playing recommendations. Sue Boeringer and Lisa Stalter are monitoring the ASA Swim Association summer swim season plans and staying in touch with our new coach. Gabriela Probst has worked tirelessly on dues collection, while John McMillan is keeping a close eye on our construction and operating budgets; their efforts along with your dues, obviously keep the club fiscally healthy. Kristen Bryant is keeping you posted with Facebook updates, while Melanie Marks is eagerly planning for later social events.
See below for more detail in each of these areas. We'll continue to keep you up-to-date as circumstances warrant. I, along with the rest of our volunteer Board, thank you for your continued support and flexibility during these very difficult times.
