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.
