Last Summer Board Meeting
Mark your calendar. Fill your cooler. The last HOA Board meeting of the summer will be Monday, June 17 at 1 pm. Will this beat the record for the shortest meeting on record? We can only hope.

No Movie This Week
This week you may want to just watch a movie in the cool of your own home. No EE movie on tap this week or next.

Adler Brings Pickleball to Nederland
Ken Adler loves playing pickleball in EE and missed it so much when he returned home to Nederland, Colorado this spring that he decided to introduce it to residents there. Although some of his Nederland friends scoffed, saying the game was for old folks, Ken invited them to try it and see what they had to say then. Last week, Ken set up a court in the Nederland Community Center gymnasium and invited the seniors to take a few swings. He hopes to get a pickleball club going. Good luck, Ken!

EE's Mermaid
Did the picture of Esther Williams' swimming double on the front page of Sunday's Green Valley News look familiar? Mary Zellner is an EE resident with a fascinating story.

Weed Shortage
Tom Cooke and Boyd Morse report that our common areas are currently experiencing a shortage of weeds. Since they love riding the gator, the guys spent two and a half hours searching high and low for places to spray, but could hardly find any weeds worth whacking!  But they aren't hanging up their sprayer just yet. They plan on hitting the common areas with another shot of pre-emergent just before the monsoons. Sorry, folks, you'll have to venture out of EE to view weeds this summer.

Care What's in the Air?
The Pima Association of Governments and the Arizona Chapter of the American Planning Association are co-sponsoring an Air Quality Forum on Tuesday, June 18, from 8:30 to 4:00 at the Joel D. Valdez Main Library, 101 N. Stone, in Tucson. The Forum will address air quality/transportation/industry/climate change & greenhouse gas emission trends and will highlight some of the innovative programs local agencies have in place to improve air quality and sustainability. The Forum is free, but registration is required.  For more information, and to register contact or Sue Cotty from Pima Association of Governments at (520) 792-1093.
