Monday Morning Memo

Independence Day
In 1776, John Adams said that Independence Day "ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more."  Our Hospitality Committee can't promise to deliver on all of those, but you can celebrate the great day at the Ramada on Thursday, July 4, at 4:30. For $6 you'll get grilled sausages and peppers, potato salad, baked beans and beverages.  Just what John Adams had in mind.    

Vandalism Alert
A resident on S. Circulo Napa has reported that a car was vandalized in front of her house sometime last Sunday evening. The gas cap cover was pried open and destroyed, as if someone was going to siphon gas, although that didn't happen. Another resident on Nueva reported a similar incident during the same time frame. Both incidents have been reported to the Sheriff's Office. Be on the lookout for any suspicious activity in our community, and report it to Mary Beth Wallace as well as the Sheriff.  

The Movie is Back 
Thanks to Kevin WelshMovie Night is back on this week.  A Good Day to Die Hard with Bruce Willis will be on the big screen.  Donations of $2 each are appreciated.  Popcorn (thanks to the culinary skills of Linda Welsh) is free.  Seat cushions are available.  Bring your own drinks.  Wednesday, 8:00 p.m. at the Ramada. 

Temporary Management Change for the EE Pool
Recreation Director Tom Cooke is heading north for a well-deserved July vacation.  In his absence, Del Bean (777-8658) and Bruce Liljegren (829-6690) will team up to keep the pool running and the Ramada spruced up.  Notice a problem with the pool in July?  Give Del or Bruce a call.

The Power of the Sun
Sometimes we forget the effect of the sun on outdoor plastic items.  One item that you may not think of is the valve on your home irrigation system. These valves often show signs of "melt down".  With our 100+ degree temperatures, it's like putting them in an oven.  One way to protect them is by using a reflective cover. You can see an example of such a cover on the irrigation valve at the Ramada garden--
over by the wall separating the garden from the drainageway.

For Seasonal Residents
During the summer, the MMM likes to keep residents who are away filled in on changes in the Green Valley area so they won't be too surprised when they return in the fall.  Fans of El Charro restaurant in Sahuarita may be surprised to learn that this restaurant recently closed.  It will be replaced by another restaurant reported to be run by some of the same owners.  The new restaurant will serve "high-end" beer.

A New Version of the Surprise Party
EE resident Kay Miller has come up with a clever twist on the usual surprise party.  The hostess invites a few close friends, spruces up the house, prepares refreshments and then leaves before the party is scheduled to begin.  Invited guests arrive to find no one is home and wonder if they've had a Green Valley moment and gotten the date or time of the party wrong. Definitely a party no one will forget.
In this case, the hostess took an unexpected trip to the emergency room, and would like to apologize to her guests. Glad to know you're feeling better now, Kay.

You Know It's Summer in EE When....
you step out onto the patio at 6 am and realize that you'll not be opening up the house to cool it off today.
