Monday Morning Memo

Thank You For Your Service
To each of the men and women in EE with service at some point in their past in one branch or another of the U.S. military, thank you again for your service.

No Mail Today
There will be no mail delivery on Monday.  But trash will be picked up on the regular schedule.

Wednesday Night Movie
This week's movie is Walk the Line, a chronicle of the life of music legend Johnny Cash. The show will begin at 7:00 PM  in the Ramada. Thanks to Jane and Eric Ellingson for sponsoring this event, and thanks to Al and Judy Prado for lending this and some other movies.  

Ramada Safety Improved
Thanks to Greg Gramstad for fixing the sunken pavers near the trash gate which were creating an unsightly trip hazard.

Book Group
The Book Discussion Group will meet on Tuesday, November 13 at 1:00 PM in the Ramada to discuss Pavilion of Women by Pearl Buck.  Lynn Theder will lead the discussion. New members are always welcome to join the discussion. 

EE Pickleball
The new season has started with play starting at 8:30 AM every day except Fridays at the courts on Circulo del Sur.  Anyone from EE is welcome to play.  If you need instruction, Greg Gramstad will be happy to help you. Come out and play, it's a great game. 

Planning for Winter Weather
Hundred degree days may still be fresh in our memories, but chilly nights are in the forecast for the coming week. So it's time to start digging out those frost cloths to cover your plants when the temperature dips below freezing. And take a look at your pipe insulation to make sure it's still in good shape. 

EE Artisans Workshop
The group members will try their hands at decorating flowerpots on Thursday, November 15, at 1:00 PM at the Ramada. Preparatory work will take place at Barbara Copeland's house (1011 Calle Regalo) on Tuesday, November 13, at 1:00 PM.  If you can't attend the Tuesday session and need to do the work at home, you should spray the inside of a terracotta pot with waterproof sealant, paint the outside of the pot with white paint, and bring the pot to the Thursday session.  Thanks to Linda Welsh for suggesting the project.  Contact Barbara at (952-250-6716) if you have any questions.  Everyone is invited to attend the workshop.

Board Meeting
The EEHOA Board will meet next Monday, November 19, at 1:00 PM at the Ramada.  All residents are welcome to attend.

Attention EE Artisans
It's time to start preparing for EE's annual Arts & Crafts Sale on Saturday, December 1, from 10:00 AM to noon at the Ramada.  The sale will be open to the public, so it's a good way to give your creations wide exposure. To reserve a table, contact Marla Ries at

Board of Directors Election - We Need YOU!
From Board Secretary and Nominating Committee Chair Ken Lindeman:
Help somebody, help the community of Esperanza Estates by running for the HOA Board.  You are needed to fill a position on the Board.  We have two hats in the ring for three positions.  Another candidate and we can vote like we do for judges.  Two more candidates and we can have an election.
The community is made up of 350 residences.  If we average 1 person per residence, we have 350 people eligible to run for 3 positions on the board.  I don't want to believe this community is made up of the "silent" majority, but my phone sure has been silent this past week.  Please, let's have a few people step up to assist in governing and making this community the best we can be.  Call me, Ken Lindeman, at 970-577-3395 and get your name on the ballet.  Time is fast running out as I will need to get the ballots in the mail right after Thanksgiving.  People- this should not be this hard to volunteer.

From EE President Dave Sielken
Nancy Ferguson has decided to step down from her role on the Hospitality Committee. We want to thank Nancy for her service and the many fun events that she organized.
The committee is free to organize their new leadership. Please let the Board and the community know what that is!

2.  Bring your own beverage (and ice if you need it).
3.  Bring an appetizer to share.
