EE HOA, Green Valley, AZ
Monday Morning Memo

Dinner and Movie
Come join your neighbors on Wednesday, January 16 at the Ramada for a hearty, delicious bowl of New England clam chowder or beef vegetable soup, with salad, a brownie and the usual libations. Social time starts at 4:30, dinner will be served at 5:00, and the movie will start at 6:00.  Price is $7.00. The movie will be The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. Some British retirees (Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Bill Nighy) decide to outsource their retirement to exotic India. Lured by advertisements for the newly restored Marigold Hotel and imagining a life of leisure in lush surroundings, they arrive and find that the Marigold is actually a shell of its former self. The retirees find that life and love can begin again when they let go of their pasts.

EEHOA Annual Meeting
You don't want to miss the HOA's annual meeting next Monday, January, 21 at 1:00 PM at CPAC (Community Performance & Art Center) on West Continental Road. A major feature of the meeting will be the announcement of election results for the board members for the coming year.  A special board meeting will be held directly afterwards to elect officers and board committee chairs and review HOA activities. Homeowners are welcome to attend. Whether you are a new homeowner or have been here a while, the meetings are a good opportunity to learn what's going on in EE.

EE Name and Address Directory
The 2019 Name and Address Directory will be for sale at the annual HOA meeting for $5.00. With so many properties changing hands in the last year, your old directory is outdated, so consider buying a new one.  If you are unable to attend the meeting but want a copy, contact Karen White at 520-648-3993.

Attention Fiber Artists
There will be a change in time and place for the meeting on Thursday January 17. We will start at 1:30 and meet at Bernie Olson's. Her address is 820 Napa. Back by popular demand, Bernie will lead participants in making fabric flowers like we did last spring. She will provide all materials.

Free Yoga Classes
Kathy Lindeman is trying to determine if there is enough interest to have yoga classes in EE. They would take place in the Ramada on either Tuesday or Thursday afternoons. The day and time will be determined by the group. The person who has volunteered to teach is Phyllis Schmidt, who has taught yoga for many years. If interested in these classes, contact Kathy at 970-577-3395 and let her know which day you would prefer.

2019 Ramada Sale
The Enhancement Committee's annual Ramada Sale on March 2nd is the perfect way to rid your home of unwanted items.  You can drop off donated items at the shed next to the pickleball courts any Wednesday from 9:00 to 11:00 AM. Pick-ups for heavier items are now available by calling Patty Tracy at 520-444-4472. The committee will not accept mattresses, hide-a-beds, clothing, paints or chemicals.
