Monday Morning Memo


December 2, 2019   Esperanza Estates      Green Valley, AZ
Muchas Gracias!!
Many thanks to Cynthia Surprise and Kris Bean for their many years (Seven Years!!) of exceptional work editing and publishing the weekly EE Monday Morning Memo. Their diligence and success in keeping EE residents informed has been extraordinary and very much appreciated. It's possible to "pick up the reins" editing the MMM because they have been so marvelously efficient. But, this is really a two-person role, and I'm looking for a co-editor who would like to work with me on the MMM.  If you are interested, please contact me, Judy Hayes, at judy.hayes@comcast.net or 720-201-9260.  We will have fun!
