July  4th  Celebration    
Join your friends and neighbors in celebrating the 4th at the Ramada.  Our Hospitality Committee is preparing a great barbecue:  grilled sausages with onions and peppers, potato salad, and baked beans.  The cost is $6.00 per person and $3.00 for a second sausage. Wine, beer, sodas, water & mixers will be provided. The party starts at 4:30.
[Editor's Note: Here in New England, I'll be celebrating with our traditional 4th of July dish of salmon and peas.]  
Special July Event Announced 
Ken and Kay Miller and Tom and Melodye Cooke, those generous folks who bring you Free Coffee & Donuts during the year, will sponsor Monsoon Margaritas, a special free event at the Ramada on Saturday, July 21, at 4:00 pm.  Snacks appropriate to the occasion will also be served. It promises to be a fun time.
The King is Coming
Movie Night has been drawing larger crowds each week. Next Saturday's show will be "Viva Las Vegas."  Elvis the Pelvis really lets loose in the song "Come on Everybody." Ann Margaret, co-stars. See this movie, whether your an Elvis fan or not. You'll like it!!!
 So, dig out your "blue suede shoes," and get "all shook up" at the Ramada on Saturday, July 7, at 7:30. "Don't be cruel" and miss it, or you'll be "crying in the chapel."
Thumbs Up!
Kudos to Dean Hess and Kevin Welsh for getting all the gravel around the new restrooms at the tennis/pickleball courts spread.  No bare ground or construction debris is visible, and it all looks great.  Kevin was able to place the new soaker hose around the oleanders, and they are looking less stressed.  The tile is also in and the fixtures are installed.  While some final touches are still needed, the restrooms are now useable.  Thanks to the entire volunteer crew for their hard work to make this long awaited project a reality.  They can justifiably be "flushed with pride" (sorry, I couldn't resist) at a job well done.   
Ramada WiFi
Hats off to Kevin Welsh who restored the Ramada internet service, knocked out by a recent storm, to those dependent on it.  A newcomer to EE, Kevin organizes and promotes the EE Arts Club's Saturday Night at the Movies, helps keep the summer pickleball group active, worked on the new restrooms and maintains the internet at the Ramada during these monsoon months.  He definitely deserves our thanks.
Thinking About Writing Your Memoir?
EE resident and author Denise Roessle, along with another local memoirist Marilyn Pate, will be at Friends in Deed's weekly Blood Pressure Check on Friday, July 6 from 8:30-10:30 a.m. to talk to folks about writing their life stories. Both will have signed books for sale and everyone is welcome. 
Jaguarundi Sighting
Several residents responded to our Periodico story about jaguarundi sightings by reporting their own encounters.   One resident was able to get a picture, and she has contacted the Sonoran Desert Museum.  According the museum's website, to date there are no known photos of these cats in Arizona.  So be on the lookout for these elusive creatures and contact Denise ( if you see one or get a photo.  We'll keep you updated.  
gvTAKEOUT Delivers Restaurant Food to Your Door
Too hot to cook tonight and too hot to step out the door to pick up a meal?  Don't despair.  gvTAKEOUT offers a new service to EE residents.  They deliver your order to your door at no charge.  Just call them at 203-2900 to have take-out menus delivered to you. You can select items from Arizona Family Restaurant, China View, Triple Play or Los Agaves.  Minimum order in the EE area is $12.  You are encouraged to generously tip the young drivers--they use their own cars and are not reimbursed for mileage.  Current menus have been posted in the EE Ramada.
