Monday Morning Memo----------------September 22

Good Morning:

The September Board meeting--the first after the normal summer recess, was held at Sunset Ramada last week. Attendance was light. An interesting presentation was made by Arleen Boyuls, editor of our Periodico, on the topic of emergency preparedness. Minutes of the meeting can be found on the website, at www.esperanzaestates.net , where they are always posted promptly following completion. Watch for the delivery of some material to your home on emergency preparedness, in the form of a pamphlet put out by Pima County.

Al Bernardi “All About Produce” show to appear at Sunset Ramada October 14th

The Board has scheduled Al Bernardi’s show “All About Produce--from Artichokes to Zucchinis” for October 14th at Sunset Ramada, beginning at 4:00 p.m. The show is free of charge, and will be presented just before the Hospitality Committee’s Hamburger Nite function.

Bernardi’s wide ranging presentation tells what it takes to get produce from the grower to the consumer; how to select the best quality produce at the local market, and what to do with it after you get it home. He also discusses food safety and the nutritional benefits of fruits and vegetables.

One of the highlights of his presentation is a 25 foot table packed with fruits and vegetables. After using the produce items to show audience members how to chose the perfect melon or pick the ripest fruit, he lets them take the “props” home to eat.

Bernardi is a lifetime veteran of the produce business, and has operated a fruit-vegetable brokerage business for many years. He knows his stuff. Please plan on attending this informative program, for which there is no charge, and with which you might just go home with some free stuff to eat! He informs with a very humorous presentation that is very fun to listen to and watch.

Those that have seen this show say it is “outstanding”.

The Hospitality Committee’s Hamburger Nite set for October 28th will be held instead on the 29th, due to a conflict. Please make a note of the change.

The 18th Annual Sedona Arts Festival returns with a fabulous array of over 150 new and returning fine artists along with first-rate entertainment, delicious food, the KidZone, and fun for all ages.

New doors have been installed at the tennis shed to replace old ones which had been entirely destroyed by termite activity and sun rot. The new ones are metal, and wont be subject to these problems in the future.
