Don't Miss the Christmas Golf Cart Parade Thursday December 22

From Donna Shay

Have you heard??? Santa Claus is coming to town!!!! Santa’s arriving Thursday December 22 around 3:15 pm in the Esperanza Estates Neighborhood Christmas Golf Cart, Scooter, Bike, Hot Cars and Walkers PARADE.

The jolly old soul has been invited to lead the parade of decked out sleighs carrying elves and reindeer. The jury is still out if they’ve been naughty or nice!!! All are welcome, however, so get those sleigh’s decorated and join the merriment. All are welcome to help witness his arrival. 

So, find your stockings and ugly sweaters;

Your garland and lights;

Christmas trees, elves and reindeers; 

Decorations a plenty are needed for this flight!!! 

ALL are WELCOME in the parade or observing in their driveways.

Parade participants assemble at the Ramada at 3 pm for a 3:15 pm PARADE start!!

After the parade will be a festive 4pm THIRSTY THURSDAY gathering for all. This is a No-Host gathering. That means that everyone brings their own drink, appetizer to share (if you'd like), eating utensils, and we all help clean up. Come on over to the Ramada and celebrate Christmas with your friend and neighbors!

Orphans’ Christmas Dinner

From: Lynn Noble and Connie Scorza

Hey everyone! It doesn’t matter if you’ve been naughty or nice come join us at the Ramada on Christmas Day for food and merriment. So many of us spend the holidays alone and to that we say BAH-HUMBUG!

You will be asked to bring a dish to share, your beverage of choice, and your own place settings. The elves will be on vacation, so we have to do the work ourselves. Please RSVP to Connie Scorza at 541-647-8755 or Lynn Noble at 406-794-2509. Actually, please let us know if you have a Christmas table cloth you could let us borrow too.

Titan Trash Information

From Kevin Welsh 520-223-3861

Titan has sent the HOA a welcome letter with lots of info. The Titan Trash Letter is also posted on our web site. There are 4 important pieces of information I need to highlight:

1. Email Amanda at [email protected] with your name, address,

and container selection. You can also leave a voice mail for Amanda

at 520 382-1009 and make your selection if email is not an option.

2. Containers are available for recycles in 18-, 35-, or 65-gallon sizes, and

for trash in 35-, 65-, and 95-gallon sizes.

3. Trash & Recycles will both be picked up on Wednesdays beginning 4

Jan 2023. You may use your existing containers or just bags.

4. There is no need to call Titan for refunds of pre-paid service, it will

automatically be sent. Homeowners with Republic or Waste

Management needs to contact them and cancel service, request

container pickup and request any refund of pre-paid service.

If you have neighbors that do not receive the MMM, please share this

information with them.
