Board Meeting Highlights
There will be no dues increase in 2019. The EEHOA Annual Meeting will be held on January 21. The candidates for the open Board positions are: Ken Lindeman, Dean Lockwood, Hugh Rhine, Howland Swift and Doug Syme. Their bios are featured in the December issue of the Periodico.

Arts & Crafts Sale
EE's annual Arts & Crafts Sale is right around the corner. On Saturday, December 1, from 10:00 AM to noon at the Ramada, you'll be able to buy handcrafted items made by neighbors.  It's a great chance to buy some unique holiday gifts. To reserve a table to sell your work, contact Marla Riesat

Wednesday Night Movie at the Ramada
This week's movie is The Family Stone starring Diane Keaton and Sarah Jessica Parker.  An uptight, conservative business-woman accompanies her boyfriend to his eccentric and out-going family's annual Christmas celebration and finds that she's a fish out of water in their free-spirited way of life. Showtime is 7:00 PM.  Thanks to Jane and Eric Ellingsonfor sponsoring this event.

Time to Decorate Those Lamp Posts
EE has a tradition of decorating street light posts for the holiday season. Don't have the time? Out of town? The Enhancement Elves will decorate (and undecorate) your post for just $10 if you already have the decorations, $15 if you don't.  A plug adapter is an additional $2.00.  Deadline for requesting this service is December 6.  To schedule a visit from the Elves, contact Jackie Rautio at 269-7864.

Hospitality Committee Event
Start the holiday season at the Sweet and Savory Holiday Celebration Saturday, December 15th.  Even addresses should bring appetizers and odd addresses desserts.  Prizes will be awarded for the ugliest Christmas sweater/shirt.  A gift basket raffle will raise funds for the committee. Bring a "white elephant" gift to participate in the optional gift exchange.  Social hour begins at 4:30 PM with food to follow at 5:00.  Wine, beer, water, soda, and Southern Comfort Punch will be available. No charge for this event.  Happy Hour on December 14 is cancelled in light of the Hospitality event.

Helpful Hints for HOA Happiness
The Board is aware that not everyone reads and understands EE's CC&Rs and Rules, so they have asked the Monday Morning Memo to include reminders of issues that often occur, disrupting the peace and harmony of our community.  We are paraphrasing and abbreviating the CC&Rs and Rules, so if an item applies to you, read the full applicable section of the CC&Rs or Rules or call a Board member for clarification. Here's this week's hint: Don't park on the street overnight, and if you park in your driveway, make sure your vehicle doesn't overhang the sidewalk. It's considered a hazard for walkers to have to step into the street to divert around your vehicle.
