Rockin' to the Rock
Concetta "I think it's just around the corner" Deodati
has stepped forward to lead the EE Hikers to Roger's Rock this
morning. The group meets at the Ramada at 8:30 am to head for
the upper reaches of Madera Canyon. They'll start on the Super Trail and
veer off into the brush without hesitation to stand astride the famed
boulder. Bring $2 for carfare, water, a lunch to be consumed upon the
rock and a sense of adventure. Poles are recommended. This hike starts
at 5,400 feet with an accumulated gain of 1,450 feet. The round trip is
approximately 4.5 miles. Hikers will return to the Ramada around 2:30
Attention EE Newcomers
Reminder that the Bienvenidos Committee's reception for new residents is

We look forward to meeting you.
Follow the aroma of grilled sausage, onions and peppers to the
Hospitality Committee's sausage fest at the Ramada this Wednesday,
starting at 4:00 p.m. We won't be grilling any ordinary sausages --
only the famed sausages made by the Green Valley Optimists Club are good
enough for the discerning palates of our EE sausage lovers. Cost of a
meal and beverage is $6.00. Good company is free.
