Members of the New Mexico Roadrunner Chapter of the Red Hat Society gathered at the Veenpere's home for a potluck luncheon and games. Thirteen members were in attendance at this beautiful home on the local golf course in Alamogordo, New Mexico. Plans were made for upcoming events including a "Meet and Greet" at the local mall on November 8, 2014 and dinner at the Elk's Lodge on December 11, 2014. Tickets have been bought and reservations have been made for the Turquoise and Silver Tea for October 19, 2014.
There were so many salads and desserts, I couldn't keep up with it all. Our hostess, Carmen, treated us to pizza which her husband Jerry picked up for us. Thanks to Jerry for taking pictures (I will get copies later) and for the pizza delivery.
We played "Farkle" out on the beautiful patio right on the golf course and the back yard which is just stunningly alive with flowers and plants of every description. Jerry is the gardener and he must have an amazing green thumb!
Jean Courtier was the only birthday girl in attendance and we serenaded her on our kazoos and presented her with a little red hat and a card. Birthday cards were mailed to Lorraine and Esperanza.
