Monsoon Madness
Away from EE during this year's monsoon season?  Thanks to Joe McCalpin's photos, you can vicariously enjoy the thrill of seeing water rushing down Arroyo #9.  (Some other photos of previous years' rains by Bruce Liljegren and another 'EE Photog' are there too.) To check them out on the EE web site, click here: .

Spic and Span
Thanks to Mr. Clean (aka Tom Cooke) our Ramada has received a thorough cleaning and is all set for the many community-wide and private events scheduled for this fall.  Any resident can reserve the Ramada for an event by signing up on the calendar located on the bulletin board at the Ramada.    

September Board Meeting
Summer recess is over, and the September meeting of our HOA Board will take place next Monday, September 17, at 1:00 p.m. at the Ramada.   The Board encourages residents to attend.  We have a few new residents who moved in over the summer and want to let them know they are very welcome at the meetings.   

Farewell From Pat Greenig
Pat Greenig, one of EE's original residents, is leaving EE and asked us to publish the following note on her behalf.

"Greetings to All!  In October I'm moving reluctantly from my home of thirty years in Esperanza Estates to Garden Home #601 in La Posada. I have so many wonderful memories of my years here and the great friends and neighbors who enriched my life.  My husband Bob passed away in 2001.  He was EE Board President for three terms and served Green Valley in many volunteer capacities.  I was a Director and founding member of the Animal League of GV (TALGV), President of Casa de Esperanza, and a Hospice counsellor, among other volunteer roles. Because of my deep roots in the community, I could not leave GreenValley.  I don't have my new telephone number or new e-mail address yet, but I hope to remain in touch with many of you.  Esperanza Estates and its residents will always hold a special place in my heart.  Pat Greenig"  

Name Tags
Ramada social events will be starting up before you know it. If you haven't yet purchased a magnetic name tag to wear at these events, there's still time to order one before the first event. The cost is $6.00 and the name tag is well worth the price.  To place your order, contact Melodye at 399-0455 or

Another Word From Our Weed Wackers
      Weed Patrol Report - Dateline Esperanza Estates  9/9/2012
     "What a difference a year makes.  On our weekly rounds to attack those pesky little desert weeds, we have noticed the following: there are approximately 320 homes that have subscribed to the program of 'no weed is a good weed.'  Last year no more than 20% of our properties were weed free.
    That leaves about 30 homeowners who probably are not aware that their yard is in need of attention.  In addition to weeds, a number of these 30 homes also have overgrown vegetation that needs to be trimmed.  If you fall into either the 'weeds only' or 'weeds and trimming' classification, we and your neighbors would greatly appreciate your cooperation.
   It is gratifying to see that 90% of the neighborhood has taken great pride in making EE THE FINEST HOA IN GREEN VALLEY.  We are striving for 100% participation by the end of September.
    If you are a non-resident owner and need help identifying problems, please call (520) 419-2489 (Weed Patrol Hotline) and we will assist you.  If you are a resident and need help, please contact the number above or any board member and we will work out a solution for you.
   Thanks to all of you for making our 'Hood' look spectacular.  Thanks in advance to the rest of you who are planning to join in."


We were saddened to learn of the death of long-time EE resident Charles Elliott on Sept. 6.  Charlie was very active in the neighborhood, helping people whenever he could. He maintained the U.S. flags on every mailbox along upper and part of lower Napa for many years, and these efforts were always much appreciated. Charlie was a veteran of WW II, and recently was part of the Honor Flight to Washington D.C. to visit the National WWII Memorial.  A memorial service will be conducted on Saturday, October 6 at 11:00 a.m. at Green Valley Community Church.  We wish to extend our condolences to his family and friends.
