New Mexico Roadrunner Chapter of the RHS Luncheon

Saturday, September 27, 2014

Members of the New Mexico Roadrunner Chapter of the Red Hat Society in Alamogordo, New Mexico gathered at their Queen's home for a potluck luncheon and viewing DVD's of previous RHS International Conventions. Queen Ladybird (Carla) also related happenings at the most recent convention held in San Francisco this past August. Two of the big highlights of this convention was entertainment by Dana Carvey and Gladys Knight. 

Carla also talked about the latest book she is writing about her Cherokee ancestors and read from a past book just to give them a flavor of the stories in her historical fiction tales about these long ago relatives.

Miss Kitty's Social Club was discussed as the next official "Hoedown" will be in Durango, Colorado in August, 2015.  It promises to be just too much fun and we are hopeful of several being able to attend.

Luncheon consisted of a huge pot of Taco Soup prepared by the hostess along with a large iron skillet of corn bread. Members brought salads and desserts to round out the bill of fare.

We only had one birthday in September, Darla Shelley, and she was serenaded by members playing Happy Birthday on their kazoos (the official musical instrument of the RHS).

It was a delightful get together and we had lots of time to visit and get better acquainted. We are all very much looking forward to October and the Flickinger Theater Guild Turquoise and Silver Tea.

Thanks to Douglas A. Kerr, Photographer for taking all the pictures.  He was well paid with Taco Soup and dessert!

This is all I have to say for now.
