Wednesday Night Movie
This week's movie is Lincoln starring Daniel Day-Lewis. The show will begin at 7:00 PM in the Ramada.  The film depicts the final four months of Lincoln's life, focusing on his efforts in January 1865 to have the Thirteenth Amendment to the Constitution passed by the U.S. House of Representatives.  Thanks to Jane and Eric Ellingson for sponsoring this event.

Board of Directors Election - We Need YOU!
From Board Secretary and Nominating Committee Chair Ken Lindeman: Volunteer now!  We are asking our neighbors to help us dispel the notion that we have "the good ole boys' club" on our HOA board.  Please submit your name to me (970-577-3395) by November 15.  We are a community run by volunteers and the HOA Board is no exception. Names will be accepted from half-time residents, full-time residents, women or men. Your brief bio will appear in the Periodico and you will become famous, at least to the voters of Esperanza Estates.  Please consider throwing your name into the ring for a three year term.  Quit after 3 years, that's okay, but give it a shot.  Thanks.

Hospitality Does It Again
Thanks to our Hospitality Committee for treating us to another great event complete with tasty pizza, good company, and dancing. Their next event will be on Saturday, November 17.  Details will be in next week's memo. 

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.

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

Forum on Mine Dust
Representative of Freeport-McMoRan will address mine tailings and dust control at the Green Valley Council forum on Wednesday, November 7, at 9:00 AM. The forum will be held in the Salvation Army Conference Room, 555 N. La Canada, Suite 121.  Reservations are required (520-648-1936).

Pool Hours
Reminder that winter pool hours are now in effect.  The pool will be open from 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM. 

Attention Water Aerobics Participants
Because of our cool morning temperatures, the Water Aerobics Group will take a break until mornings warm up next spring. Anyone want to start a Polar Bear Club?

Esperanza Jams
There's been a good response to Esperanza Jams (originally scheduled for Nov. 8th). Unfortunately, the violinist, the stand-up bass player, the banjo player, the accordion player, and the ukulele player either have not yet arrived or are traveling outside Green Valley. The first gathering has been rescheduled to 3:00 PM, Thursday, Dec. 6, at the home of Marla Ries, 852 W Calle del Regalo. Please let her know you will be attending ( / 360-708-0855).
