Hospitality Committee Meeting
The Hospitality Committee will hold its first meeting of the season on Monday, October 28th at 1:00 PM at the Ramada.  This will be a brief meeting to reconnect, and to make a few plans into the next months.  New members who wish to join in the fun of organizing monthly gatherings for the EE community are welcome to attend.  If you cannot attend this meeting, but wish to join the committee, please contact Robin Lockwood at 612-618-5582.

Hospitality Pot Luck Tuesday at 4:30
Plan to bring a family-sized dish to share to the first Hospitality event of the 2019-2020 season. Desserts, wine, beer and soda are provided, as are plates and eating utensils. Meet new friends and greet old friends at social hour starting at 4:30. Dinner starts at 5:00. Halloween costumes are encouraged but not required.

Wednesday Night Movie 
This week's movie on Wednesday at 7:00 at the Ramada is Paper Moon. Real-life father and daughter Ryan and Tatum O'Neal team up as slick con-artists Moses Pray and Addie Loggins in 1930s Kansas. Thanks to Jane and Eric Ellingson for sponsoring this event.

EE Annual Craft Sale
The 5th Annual EE Holiday Arts and Crafts Fair will be held on Saturday, December 7, from 9 AM to 1 PM at the Ramada. If you are interested in selling your creations, you can reserve a space by calling Robin Lockwood at 612-618-5582. A nominal fee of $5.00 will be collected from each vendor on the day of the event to help cover the cost of advertising. Because of limited space, vendors must be EE homeowners or residents. This event is co-hosted by Robin Lockwood and Debbie Ries.

Attention Fiber Artists
The EE Fiber Arts Group is starting its new season of creativity this week on Thursday at 1:00 PM at the Ramada. Bring your projects or just come over to socialize and see what others are working on. New members are always welcome.

New Pickleball Hours
Please note that regular pickleball play will now start at 8:00 AM every day. Mornings are getting chilly.

Javelina Havoc at the Pickleball Courts
Local javelinas have heard that pickleball is the fastest growing sport in America, and they want to get in on the action. Several of them have been checking out our courts under the cover of darkness. (Maybe to avoid the $10 guest fee.) We know this because of the scratches they left on the new courts. Please be sure to close the gates when you leave to prevent further damage.

Food Bank
Please remember we have a container in the Ramada kitchen where you can deposit items for the Green Valley Food Bank. Thanks to Jane and Eric Ellingson for delivering the donations to the food bank every week.

EE Board News
