EE Hikers Backtrack Before Hitting the Trail
In a charmingly characteristic move for the ever-flexible EE Hikers,
this week's group has reversed its course before even setting foot on
the trail. The Bridal Wreath Falls Hike originally planned for today,
has been re-scheduled for Monday, March 11. Today's hike will be a
shorter jaunt on the Nature Trail in Madera Canyon--the hike originally
scheduled for February 18, but changed to Proctor Road/Elephant Head
hike. Maybe there's a pattern here?
Looking for a 2.5 mile beautiful hike on a gorgeous day with great
companions? Meet at the Ramada this morning at 8 am. Bring $2 for
carfare, water and snacks. You'll be back in time for lunch.
H.O.G.s Outnumber Hot Chicks
For a brief moment the HOGS (Hot Old Guys) outnumbered the Hot Chicks
participating in afternoon Aqua Exercise classes at the EE pool last
Thursday. Despite their protests of "men can't do that", they put their
all into the routine and huffed and puffed their way through. With the
forecast for afternoon temperatures in the 70s, it's ideal weather to
get fit in the water. There's still room for you at 3 pm on Tuesdays
Attention Pickleball Players
Warmer days are moving the hours of morning play to 9:00 on Tuesdays,
Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Hours for Ladies Only on

Movie Of The Week
Same place (Ramada), same day (Wednesday) new show time (6:30).
The movie for March 6 is 'The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel'.
To make the most of their meager retirement savings, a group of British
seniors moves to India to live out their golden years at the Marigold
Hotel. But upon arrival, they discover the once-lavish resort has wilted
considerably. Powerful cast including Judi Dench and Maggie Smith.

Ramada Sale Success
Congratulations to the Enhancement Team for another successful patio and
bake sale. This year's sales totaled over $3,300! Bakery sales
significantly increased the cash count as well as our waistlines. The
Enhancement Team will use the money for some great projects to enhance
EE. Thanks to the Team for their hard work in organizing the sale, to
the Men's Auxiliary and all the other volunteers who assisted at the
sale, and to everyone who donated and purchased items.
Sneak Peek Patio Preview Sale Survives Sequester
Actually the two have nothing to do with each other but, I just liked
the alliteration. EE residents turned out in full force Friday for fine
finds at the Sneak Peek Patio Preview Sale to add to the Enhancement
coffers. Baked goods disappeared, friends chatted, and neighbors bought
neighbors "stuff." All in all, a profitable and enjoyable hour that will
be on the schedule for the next sale.
