Red Hatters Fete Vice Queen Penny Pirrung at Memories Restaurant

Saturday, March 7, 2015

Members of the New Mexico Roadrunner Chapter of the Red Hat Society feted their Vice Queen Penny Pirrung to a farewell luncheon at Memories Restaurant in Alamogordo, New Mexico.  VQ Penny is moving to the Daytona Beach area of Florida the end of this month.

We had a fabulous time visiting and dining on delicious food and beverages at Memories.  VQ Penny was presented with a wide brimmed Red Hat from the chapter members because she will need to protect her lovely skin in the sunshine state.  In packing, VQ Penny discovered a number of cherished items she didn't have room for and she packaged them up and brought them to the luncheon where we played a version of "Chinese Auction" and each attendee received one as a momento from Penny. 

We had two visitors, friends of Penny's, C J and Flo, who have interest in joining the Red Hat Society and they now have all the information needed to become members.

We shall all miss Penny's bright smile and wit and no one more than I. She has been of invaluable assistance to me with our chapter.  I know she will find a great group of gals in Florida to shop and play with. Now, to find a new Vice Queen and I'm hoping someone will just step up.

 This is all I have to say for now.
