Members of the New Mexico Roadrunner Chapter of the Red Hat Society in Alamogordo, New Mexico gathered in town to do some shopping (the favorite sport of the RHS) and then to Applebee's for lunch. I was unable to join in for the shopping as I was still recuperating from a concussion, but I understand from all the conversation that many good purchases were made.
Queen Ladybird aka Carla K. and Vice Queen Donna had stories to tell about the Indianapolis RHS Convention and Miss Kitty's Social Club event in Durango, Colorado. Several were excited to hear that the convention next year will be in San Antonio, Texas.
