EE HOA, Green Valley, AZ
Monday Morning Memo

 September 28, 2015        Esperanza Estates        Green Valley, AZ

Thank You Jim Lindberg
Jim's resignation from the Board was announced at the Sept. meeting.  Jim has served on the Board and as head of the Architectural Control committee since 2011 and generously offered his experience as an architect to help homeowners modify the exterior of their homes.
The Board will appoint a replacement at the October meeting.
If you have architectural control questions before then, call Ben Sheffield at 625-3797. 

EE Book Discussion Group
The first gathering of the group's 2015-2016 season will be on Tuesday, October 6 at 11 a.m.  at the Ramada to discuss "The Girl on the Train" by Paula Hawkins.  There is still time to read this fast-paced book, which keeps the reader guessing until the very end.  Titles for the remaining selections will be voted on and the top choices will be assigned to the months ahead and published in plenty of time to read.  All are welcome--hope to see you there!

Yoga Is Back
Starting on October 5, the very popular gentle yoga classes will resume at the Ramada on Mondays and Wednesdays at 9 a.m. The time may change when the weather cools. If you have questions about this activity, email instructor Valerie at

Last Chance
Still don't have an EE license plate on your car or golf cart? This may be you last chance to buy one from the EE Gardeners.  There are only a dozen left, so don't miss this opportunity to show your pride in our neighborhood.  The cost is $10 and proceeds go to the Gardeners to help with their efforts to keep EE a showplace.  To order, contact Cynthia Surprise at

Who Were Those Lunatics?
A group of EE residents gathered in EE Park Sunday evening to watch the supermoon total eclipse on Sunday evening. Thanks to Kris and Del Bean for bringing their telescope. No howling has been reported.

Night Sounds
If you have your windows and ears open in the early evening, you may be treated to the sounds of our nocturnal wildlife. Last week we heard the pleasant hooting of a great horned owl and the raucous screeching of what I believe was a western screech owl. These owls seem to favor calling from the top of the cypress tree in Mike Gerrard's yard.  Mike is the author of the Periodico's wildlife series, so perhaps these owls are trying to send him a message.

September Periodico
The September issue of the Periodico has been delivered to your email address and a few printed copies will be available at the Ramada by Tuesday.  This issue is full of photos from EE summer events.  Here's a hint: if you view the Periodico online rather than in print, the photos will be in color and you can zoom in to get a better view of the photos.  (Can you believe I just figured that out?) 

Book Event
The Santa Cruz Valley Chapter of the Society of Southwestern Authors kicks off its 2015-16 season on October 5th at the GV Library.  In observance of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, author and cancer survivor Mary L. Maas will talk about women surviving their battles with breast cancer. Her book, "Sisterhood of the Wounded Breast" is a collection of personal stories, which is meant to uplift and encourage those who may be dealing - now or in the future - with these issues. Her book is available at the Book Shop in GV, and at this event. 1:00-2:45, free and open to the public. For more information, contact Denise Roessle, 399-3312,
