The New Mexico Roadrunner Chapter of the Red Hat Society dined at Pepper's Grill in Alamogordo, New Mexico on Saturday, January 10, 2015. The food was quite well prepared and the waitress, although new on the job, took great care of the group. The waitress and a helper came in after lunch with cupcakes with candles on them for each of the birthday girls, Margie, Dorothy E. and Alice and we all sang Happy Birthday. I forgot the bag with the Kazoos in it so no accompaniment this time.
They welcomed three new members; Carla H., Terry C. and Donna W. Everyone had a great time after lunch with one group playing Farkle and another group playing Scrabble. It is so wonderful that Pepper's has back rooms where noise won't bother the other diners because Red Hatters really enjoy talking and laughing with abandon. Indeed, all remarked about the chapter having two Donnas, two Carlas and two Dorothys and for some reason this set off more laughter and conversations.
Plans were made for future events including the Las Cruces Council of Red Hat Queens Big Birthday Bash celebrating 17 years for the Red Hat Society on April 24-25, 2015 at the Hotel Encanto. They always hostess a grand event and there are plenty of vendors where one can engage in the official sport of the Red Hat Society, Shopping!
