New members are always welcome.

Board Meeting Next Monday
The EEHOA Board will hold its regular meeting on Monday, November 18 at 1:00 at the Ramada.
All residents are welcome to attend. It's a great way to learn about what's happening in EE.

Wednesday Night Movie
This week's movie on Wednesday at 7:00 at the Ramada is 9 to 5 starring Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin and Dolly Parton.  An office satire about three female secretaries who decide to get revenge on their tyrannical boss by abducting him and running the business themselves.
Thanks to Jane and Eric Ellingson for sponsoring this event.

Water Aerobics
Because of cool mornings, the water aerobics group will be on hiatus until spring. "Polar bear" club, anyone?

Have Space in Your Garage?
The Enhancement Team is seeking a garage to use to store large items for the Ramada Sale in March. They also need volunteers with pickup trucks to transport these items to the storage areas. Contact Jackie Rautio (602-206-3354) if you can help or want to donate items to the sale.

New Bench
Dog walkers often congregate at the entrance to the walking trail next to Camino Holgado to socialize. Now dog walkers (or anyone else) has a place to sit thanks to the new bench donated by Scottie Blum in memory of her husband, Fred.

Dog Park?
Hugh Gates will hold an informal meeting to explore the idea of having a dog park in Esperanza Estates. The meeting will take place at the Ramada on Wednesday at 1:00. Anyone who has ideas or opinions (pro or con) is welcome to attend. This is only a preliminary discussion to see if there is any interest in such a facility. The HOA board has not approved the idea of a dog park.
