Movie Night Wed. at 7:00 PM
Thanks to Jane & Eric Ellingson for sponsoring this week's movie, Lost in Paris. A Canadian librarian visits Paris for the first time to assist her myopic Aunt Martha. Catastrophes ensue, mainly involving a homeless man who has yet to have an emotion or thought he was afraid of expressing.
(Reminder: the Ramada is equipped with an inductive hearing loop to assist anyone with a 'T-coil' equipped hearing aid or a portable loop receiver to hear the dialog clearly.  If you'd like to get a receiver for $10, email to

Do those two people whose story is featured prominently in the front page article of the Sunday GV News look familiar? They should! They are EE's Rich and Barb Thompson who have an interesting story to tell.

Thanks from the Enhancement Team
"On behalf of the EE Enhancement Team, we want to thank everyone that attended our Dessert Buffet and those who provided the wonderful array of desserts. It could not have happened without the generous participation of our own EE residents. We successfully served 96 people and had leftovers that attendees could load on a plate to take home for $1. Our own Kraylen Miholer generously donated a $50 Gift Card to CPAC (Community Performance and Arts Center) which was won by Jim Jeffery and our drawing for a Orange Bundt Cake was won by Patti Purcell. What a great neighborhood we have!"

Netflix Scammers
Wondering why Netflix needs you to confirm your payment information by e-mail? They don't. But there's a scammer or two sending out bogus requests for your information. Beware!

In Memoriam
We are sad to report the passing of Gerald Gafford (Camino del Ensalmo) on February 3 and of Henry Roessle (W Circulo Napa) on February 6. Our condolences to their families and friends.
