Monday Morning Memo

November 18, 2013        Esperanza Estates        Green Valley, AZ
Board Meeting Today
You won't be bored at today's board meeting.  The board will consider the 2014 budget proposed by the Budget Committee.  A copy of the agenda is included at the end of this memo.  The meeting will be held at the Ramada and will begin at 1:00 p.m. 
Readers Rejoice
The next meeting of the EE Book Club is tomorrow, Tuesday November 19, at 2:00 p.m. at the Ramada. New members are welcome.  If you are interested in joining and want to get started reading, the next book will be Benediction by Kent Haruf. There won't be a formal meeting in December, and the next meeting will be January 21.
Coffee & Donuts
Thanks to the Millers and Cookes, there's a great reason to get up and going early on the third Wednesday of every month.  Come on down to the Ramada at 8:30 a.m. this Wednesday, November 20 for free coffee and donuts to start the day with your neighbors.
Chicago the Movie for This Week
Movie Master Kevin Welsh announces that the movie for this Wednesday will be the Academy Award-winning 2002 musical Chicago.  Renee Zellweger, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Richard Gere star in this celebration of scandal and corruption in the 1920s.  Bring your dancing shoes, grab a cushion, wrap up in a blanket and enjoy Linda Welsh's popcorn and decaf.   The fun begins at 6:30 pm at the Ramada.  A $2 donation to the Arts Club is requested.
Michiganders--Yoopers and Trolls alike--will want to mark their calendars for Wednesday, November 27, when the movie Escanaba in da Moonlight will be aired. 
Expecting a Baby?
If you plan to have a baby or toddler visiting you this holiday season, remember that you can borrow equipment such as car seats and playpens free of charge from our Enhancement Team. Just call Lorna at 838-0653 if you want to use something.
Return of the Holiday Elves
EE has a wonderful tradition of decorating our street light posts for the holiday season from Thanksgiving to New Years.  It looks so festive, and draws lookers from all over Green Valley.  For those of you who don't have the time, or the energy, or who aren't here during the holidays, you can enlist the aid of the Enhancement Elves. They will do your decorating for a mere $10 if you have the decorations or $15 if you don't.  If you need the electrical plug-in to go in the socket in your post, the charge is an additional $2.00, but the adaptor then becomes yours.  The charge includes both putting up and removing the decorations.  Deadline for this service is December 15, so if you want an elf to appear at your lamp post, call Jackie at 269-7864.  They do extremely nice work. 
What's That White Stuff?
If you've looked up at the Ramada ceiling this week you may have noticed a white area.  That's a sample of the potential solution the Board is considering to improve the acoustics in the Ramada. 
End of an Era
Scottie Blum and Norma Stanley served their last burger at last week's Burger Night.  Eric Ellingson presented them with commemorative bricks to show the HOA's appreciation for their hard work as Hospitality Committee Chairs over the past nine years. We're still hoping a volunteer will step forward and take over as Hospitality Committee Chair so our wonderful social events will continue.
Buy a Brick
An EE commemorative brick installed on the Ramada floor can be a permanent way to say something, honor someone, or memorialize a person, date or event. Cost is $50, part of which goes to support the HOA. Normally we can run 3 lines of 14 characters each, but this can be enhanced at a greater cost if the three lines are not enough to express your sentiments. Contact Tom Cooke at 399-0455 to place an order. 
A good way to say something nice about Fido or Fluffy is to purchase a Pet Plaque to display on the column at the back of the Ramada.  The cost is $25 and can be ordered by calling Geri Lindberg at 777-4972.
Pop Tops
Reminder that Ellie Franz collects tabs from aluminum cans for the Ronald McDonald House in Tucson.  You can deposit your tabs in the green can on the counter in the Ramada.
No Parking
Reminder that the "yellow zone" in front of the Ramada is for short-term parking to load or unload only.  It is the only area where there is wheelchair or walker access. 
The Sons of Orpheus Return to Green Valley
The first of Sons of Orpheus Male Choir's semi-annual Green Valley concerts will be held at the Green Valley Performance and Arts Center (CPAC) on Thursday, December 19, at 7:00 p.m. at 1250 W. Continental Rd.  Tickets are available in advance by phoning the box office at (520) 399-1750.  The cost is $15 in advance or $17 at the door on the night of performance. Soprano Lindsey McHugh and tenor Brandon Dale will be performing, along with other U of A and community soloists, including talented teen violinist Nicole Skaggs.  The program will include a variety of familiar sacred and secular pieces, chosen to thrill and entertain holiday audiences.
Attention Fellow Ice Cream Lovers
In case you missed the announcement in the Green Valley News, Old Chicago Deli now sells ice cream.  They are open 7 days a week from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.  If you walk down and back, you can tell yourself you burned off the calories. 
EE Classifieds
Wanted to borrow: one twin size inflatable bed for about a week starting December 26.  Contact Mary Ferland at 398-7178.
