Board Meeting Today
The EEHOA Board is scheduled to meet at the Ramada today at 1 p.m. All residents are encouraged to attend to know what's happening in our HOA.

Dues and Don'ts
If you've had your EE HOA dues payment returned by the United States Postal Service with an "undeliverable" sitcker, it's a mystery.  Feel free to bypass the postal service and bring your payment envelope to the Board meeting or contact our treasurer, Joan Moreaux.

The HOA is looking for a volunteer to monitor and replace, as needed, the propane tanks used for warmth during our winter gatherings. Contact Tom Cooke at 399-0455 or, if you could help out.

Thanks for the Party
Thanks to the Hospitality Committee for getting the holiday season off to a great start with the potluck and sing along last week. Special thanks to those who led the caroling and shared their personal Christmas stories.

Coffee & Donuts
Warm up with some hot coffee and a friendly chat with neighbors at the monthly complimentary coffee & donuts at 8:30 a.m. at the Ramada on Wednesday December 21. Heaters will be in use if the weather is cold. Thanks to the Cookes and Surprises for sponsoring this event.

New EE Christmas Tradition
Donna Shay is organizing Sweet Treats, a new neighborhood project to deliver plates of treats to EE elders who are shut in or alone for the holidays.  Assembling of donated treat plates and delivering them to our very special neighbors will take place at the Ramada on Wednesday, December 21 after Coffee & Donuts (approximately 9:15 AM).  Please call Donna at 815-243-3402 to volunteer to donate treats, assemble plates, or deliver them and visit with the recipients.

Hot Desert Christmas Collection
The year-round landscaping elves known as the Hot Desert Crew certainly deserve extra thanks. To avoid waking EE summer residents, these guys work without power tools before 7 am and are rewarded by 100 plus temperatures in the afternoons.  A Hot Desert Gift container will be prominently displayed at the Board meeting, and Wednesday's Coffee and Donuts.  Contact Dean Hess at 780-8995 if you'd like to donate at another time. If you'd like to add a personal note of appreciation, email Dean at and he'll present the neighborhood good wishes along with the cash.

Continuing this lovely tradition, residents on parts of Circulo Napa will light luminarias along the street at dusk on Friday, December 23. The holidays can be hectic, but the stroll down Napa in the quiet of the early evening is a tranquil experience. Thanks to all the Napa residents who create this peaceful scene.

First Day Party
Don't get partied out before January 1! Another EE holiday tradition is to celebrate the new year with a luncheon potluck at 1:00 p.m. on the first day of the new year.  Please bring your own table service, beverage and a dish to share. Thanks to Jane Ellingson and Mona Sheffield for organizing the gathering. If you'd like to help them set up, call Jane at 625-7782.

The Enhancement Team will be holding a live auction at the Ramada on Friday, January 20. Proceeds will benefit our neighborhood. In addition to interesting or high/end items the auction will also include services. For example, if you are a great cook, you could donate a homemade dinner. Contact Linda Sielken at 908-240-1887 to donate.

Val Palacios lost a silver and turquoise earring on her way to the Ramada last week.  If you spot it between 110 Circulo Napa and the Ramada, please give Val a call.
