Spotlight on Esperanza Estates Volunteers!
First, an enthusiastic Thank You to our wonderful Hospitality Committee who put in many long hours planning and hosting our EE Holiday Party last Thursday. It was a huge success! And, Thank You to the Enhancement Committee for the beautiful holiday decorations that are making our neighborhood look so festive! 

Kudos to Greg Gramstad, our Court Master, who is doing an excellent job taking care of and managing play at our pickleball courts and the court area. He keeps everything neat and in good order and it is looking great. Many thanks Greg!

A plaque commemorating a few of the many accomplishments of Max Perry in Esperanza Estates has been permanently installed at the pickleball courts. Max, a past president and member of our Board, passed away unexpectedly in November.

Jim and Barbara Copeland will replace Craig and Cynthia Surprise as new co-sponsors of our popular complimentary Coffee and Donuts program, beginning in January. They will be partnering with Tom and Melodye Cooke who have co-sponsored the program for several years.

Thanks to Eric and Jane Ellingson for sponsoring the popular Wednesday Evening Movie over the last few years, and to Craig Surprise for being projectionist. The Wednesday Movie is being discontinued.  Anyone interested in sponsoring the Wednesday Movie, please call Jane, 625-7782.
