The owners of Points West will attend the February board meeting to inform us about their company.

Optimist Sausage Fest February 12
The Hospitality Committee is hosting a fundraising event for the Optimist Club of Green Valley to further their work in the community.  The Optimists will be cooking their famous homemade sausages, and the Hospitality Committee will provide the rest. 
In addition, Jim Copeland will be providing a beautiful handmade mesquite table and mesquite lamp for the committee to auction off as a fundraiser.  Happy hour will begin at 4:30, with dinner served at 5:00.  Cost for the event will be $8.00.

EE Gardeners
The Gardeners extend thanks to everyone who participated in the recent clean up of the trail. Truckloads of trimmings were hauled away.
Now you can learn how easy it is to plant cactus. The Gardeners will meet at 9:00 on Wednesday at the Ramada, and will be transplanting and planting cactus and bushes along the EE trail behind Regalo. Everyone is welcome. Bring gloves and a shovel.
