Pickleball Lost and Found

There have been 4 light weight jackets left at the pickleball courts. We have them locked up for safe keeping. Stop by if you have misplaced may be yours.

Caring Connections

Caring Connections is a way to share information about EE neighbors who may be experiencing a health crisis or could use some neighborly assistance. With the recurring isolation of Covid, we often don't know what's happening right next door. Our neighbors want to know so they can help one another. If you know of a situation, please call Judy Hayes, 720-201-9260, or email
