Members of New Mexico Roadrunner Chapter of the Red Hat Society (RHS) celebrated the RHS 15th Anniversary at Memories Restaurant. Vice Queen Penny Pirrung presided quite ably at this event because Queen Ladybird (Carla) was in Atlanta, Georgia attending the International RHS convention.
Prior to this event, Carla wrote and received a proclamation from Mayor Susie Galea of Alamogordo, New Mexico and also one from Governor Susana Martinez celebrating the RHS 15th Anniversary. These were presented to the RHS at the convention by Carla. Mayor Galea also appointed Carla as emissary from Alamogordo to the convention.
Along with the regular members of the chapter, one new member was welcomed, Lu Mattson. Our chapter now numbers 19 and growing.

Super Red Hat hugs to Vice Queen Penny for organizing and handling the 15th Anniversary event in my absence. Thanks also for the great photos at Memories Restaurant. I really missed being with all of you.
This is all I have to say for now.
