Attention New Residents
The EE Bienvenidos Committee will hold its annual
reception for new residents on Wednesday, March
27, at 4:00 PM at the Ramada.
If you are new to
EE and plan to attend, please RSVP today to Barb
McCalpin at 520-867-8067 if
you have not already done so.
This week's movie on Wednesday at 7:00 PM at
the Ramada is Dave starring
Kevin Kline and Sigourney Weaver. To
avoid a potentially explosive scandal when the U.S.
President goes into a coma, an affable temp agency owner
with an uncanny resemblance is put in his place.
Thanks to Jane & Eric Ellingson for sponsoring this event.

There will be an EE Gardeners work session on Wednesday

plantings, tree trimming and a new pad for the table
and benches. Take some time to walk through the park
in the next two weeks as the mesquites will be in
bloom. Thanks to everyone who helped with the work
there and especially to Jane
and Eric Ellingson who
donated the table and benches.
