We'll observe the currently recommended Covid protocol for outdoor gatherings.  If you are vaccinated, you don't have to mask or social distance, unless you have underlying conditions, then do what's right for you.  It's recommended that non-vaccinated people continue to observe masking and social distancing.

Look forward to seeing you!!
Reminder To Trim the Tall Palms
From Cyndie Alto
Just another friendly reminder about getting your tall palms trimmed.  The deadline in Esperanza Estates is June 30. The dry fronds are a fire hazard during monsoon season, and a spark can catch them on fire in an instant.  Homeowners can hire anyone they desire to do the work.  EE has an agreement with Monstrosity Tree Service, 520-230-7131, for $80/tree which they will honor for everyone in EE. Trees untrimmed by June 30 will be trimmed by the HOA, and homeowners will be billed $90/tree.  Please call Cyndie Alto, 509-881-7569 ,with questions.  Thanks to everyone who has already taken care of their palms!
Karyn Grob
There will be a gathering to honor and celebrate the life of neighbor Karen Grob, who passed away recently.  Everyone is invited to come to the Esperanza Estates Ramada, Portillo and Ensalmo, at 8:00 -10:00 am on June 26.  Karyn's sisters will be there, as well as neighbors and friends. Bring a cup of coffee and a memory of Karyn. Early morning snacks and juice will be provided.
