Gardeners' Work Day
The Gardeners will be planting along Napa on Wednesday. If you'd like to join in the fun, meet at the Ramada at 9:00 AM. 

Movie Nights Are Back!
It should be warm enough to have a movie at the Ramada this Wednesday at 7:00 PM. The movie is Secondhand Lions, a coming-of-age story about a shy, young boy sent by his irresponsible mother to spend the summer with his wealthy, eccentric uncles in Texas. Michael Caine, Robert Duvall and Haley Joel Osment star.  Thanks to Jane and Eric Ellingson for sponsoring this event.

Update on Refurbishing the Pickleball Courts
The board has approved the refurbishing of the pickleball courts and a contract has been signed. The new courts will consist of four dedicated pickleball courts with dividing fencing and semi-permanent nets. The projected start date for construction is March 25. There are a few tasks ahead of construction that require volunteer help, namely removing the old plastic surface and trimming some oleander.
If you have any questions about the project, call Max Perry at (520) 331-2973.

Shhhhh.....Friday's Sneak Peek is for EE Residents Only

See Something, Say Something
Kudos to Jim Gardner on Ensalmo who saw water streaming off the Ramada roof after a hard freeze and patiently tracked down a Board member to report the problem. Dean Hess and Craig Surprise found a leaking pool solar heating system pipe on the roof and arranged to have it repaired.

Pingo Postponed
