From Donna Shay

It's almost Easter and time for the Annual Easter Golf Cart Parade & After Party!!

Easter Sunday, April 9th at 3 pm

Begin gathering 2:45 at Flag Park

After Party at the Ramada following the parade 

Dust off those Easter bonnets and golf carts. Add a few colorful flowers, streamers, and some dangling plastic eggs. You can participate in the Parade however you choose....motorcycle, car, bicycle, walker, skateboard, wheelchair, walking...whatever!

We'll use the no-host plan for the After Party at the Ramada...BYOB, bring a snack to share (if you like), and your own eating utensils. Celebrate the glorious day with your neighbors in your driveway or join the Parade and then the After Party. All are welcome!!!

From Mary Harp

For our work this week, the Gardeners will meet on Tuesday, April 4 at 8:30 am at Palo Verde Park (next to 1142 Norte).  Bring tools for clean up, pruning and weeding at the Park. New gardeners are always welcome.

Also, last week our EE Garden Club had a BBQ, hosted by Barbara and Jim Copeland. A good time was had by all, and Jolene Hartje made these beautiful cupcakes...good enough to eat!

From all the EE Residents....Many Thanks to all the Garden Club folks who do so much to keep Esperanza Estates beautiful!

Pickleball Classes End of Season

From Sharon Falor

It’s time to say farewell to our winter residents, and to transition from weekly instruction to focus play! It has been my pleasure to share the court with each of you. Our educational program has enriched our HOA, improved our quality of life, and multiplied our friendships! Thank you for a wonderful winter, and I look forward to coaching everyone again in January. I am grateful and touched by your kind words, generosity, and the beautiful painted rock! It is on display in front of my home. Be safe and Pickle on!


P.S. Pickleball classes celebrated with a pizza party at the pizza oven.

Enhancement Loaners

Were you aware that our Enhancement Team has a Loaner Program of occasional use items that you can borrow...things like folding tables and chairs, dollys, a ladder, and baby items. The Inventory List can be seen on the EE website under Enhancement Loaners. To borrow items, call Jackie (602-206-3354) or Gloria (920-323-1646).

Unsung Heros

Esperanza Estates is fortunate to have volunteers who keep our neighborhood beautiful, comfortable, friendly, and efficient. Many of these folks work behind the scenes, and most of us don't know about their important contributions. Who do you know in EE who is quietly volunteering and contributing to our neighborhood? We'd like to recognize and applaud their work. Please let us know about their work...Judy Hayes jkhayes70@gmail.com and John Nesavich, jnesavich@gmail.com.
