tour on Saturday,
April 12. They are the Berdine/Meyer garden on
Regalo at Portillo and the Shay garden on Circulo del Sur.
Be aware that there will be many cars in these areas
throughout the day.
Got Hazardous Waste?
Here's a great chance to rid your home and garage of bad
stuff in an environmentally friendly way. The GVC semi-annual
household hazardous waste collection event will take place on Saturday,
April 19, from 8:00 a.m. until noon in
the parking lot of Valley Presbyterian Church, 2800 Camino del
Sol. To help limit the traffic, try to combine your materials
into one load with your neighbors'. Examples of materials that
can be left off are: automotive fluids, batteries, drain
cleaners, fire extinguishers, herbicides, polishes, pool
chemicals. If it's acid, caustic, flammable, poison or toxic,
chances are they will take it. Joe McCalpin is
heading up the event, and a few EE residents have volunteered to
The Last of the Mohicans
This 1992 film based on the novel by James Fenimore Cooper
will be shown at the Ramada on Wednesday,

Going Back to Bisbee
The EE Book Club will discuss Richard Shelton's memoir of
his years in Bisbee on Tuesday,
April 15, at 2:00 p.m. at the Ramada. If you love
southern Arizona, this is a must read book.
Food Bank Bin
Kevin Welsh has
obtained a permanent bin for the Ramada in which you can deposit
donations to the GV food bank. The food bank will pick up
donations every Thursday, but if you notice the bin is full
earlier in the week, you can call the number shown on the bin.
Please consider donating your non-perishable pantry items when
you leave for the season. Donations drop off in the summer when
so many donors leave, but the need increases.
Encounters of the Rattling Kind
reports finding a sleeping, 2-foot long rattlesnake underneath
her recycle container. She captured the creature in a photo and
let the Green Valley Fire Folk relocate it.
A reminder to "Look Before You Reach".
A necklace was found in the Ramada on Saturday night after

Looking for a good book to read as you sit by the pool this
summer? It's waiting for you just steps away from your lounge
chair at the EE Book Exchange in the pool enclosure area. You
can borrow or donate books or magazines any time. Please
consider donating your books when you leave for the season.
Please, tie the two sets of doors on the cabinet shut when you
We've noticed some of our seasonal residents are starting to
head back to their other homes. Will they be shoveling snow when
they get there? Please be extra vigilant when your neighbors
leave and call the Sheriff's office if you spot any suspicious
activity. If you are leaving, remember you can ask the
Sheriff's Auxiliary Volunteers to do periodic home checks. Hint
-- leave yourself a note on your kitchen counter to call them
when you return in the fall. Otherwise, when the volunteers see
activity in the house (you) they will call the Sheriff's office
and deputies will arrive at your door. How embarrassing is that!
Sshhh! It's a Secret
Don't tell Karen O'Brien I
told you, but she has offered to teach some one-day art
project classes for EE residents next fall. Stay tuned for
Aqua Exercise Monday thru Friday
Morning Aqua Exercise (8-9 AM) with Judy Lang and Terry Jackson is

a seamless transition to summer for those looking for an

The water's fine, and you'll be glad you came.
