From the New Editors
This is the first issue of the MMM by new editors
Cynthia Surprise and Kris Bean. We are excited to continue this
important and popular communication tool to keep EE residents
informed about news and events around EE. In the immortal words
of Bert Lance, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." Tom Cooke did
a superb job during his long tenure as editor, and we don't
currently intend to make changes to his format. If you
have any comments about or announcements for the MMM, contact
Cynthia at 205-2742 or
firstname.lastname@example.org, or Kris at 288-0173 or

New Features Around EE
There are some new items to notice when you are out and about in
EE. Check out the new planter at the EE entrance monument on
Esperanza Boulevard. This is one more example of the wonderful
improvements our Enhancement Team makes to our subdivision.
Thanks to Jane
and Eric Ellingson for
painting the planter. Thanks
also to John
donating a chimenea to the Esperanza Estates Park. Steve
"Stoney" Brown no
longer resides in EE, but the new blue "Rock-Art Walkway Thanks
to Steve Brown" marker recently placed along the trail is a
fitting tribute to his contribution to our community.
EE's celebration of the Arizona centennial on February
14 starts at 3:30
a ribbon-cutting ceremony at Esperanza Estates Park,
followed by a parade of golf carts and pedestrians. The
potluck dinner at the Ramada starts at 4:30, and we'll be
treated to some delightful after-dinner entertainment.
You may drop off your potluck
dish at the Ramada starting at 3:00. There will be
cake for dessert, so
please don't bring dessert as
your dish. Soda, mixers, coffee, bottled water and
wine will be provided, but you should bring any other
beverages you would like. There won't be any car parking
spaces near EE Park, so please
plan to walk or use your golf cart.
A few extra folding tables and
chairs are needed at the potluck. If you can loan any,
please call Barb McCalpin at 867-8067.
