Members of the New Mexico Roadrunner Chapter of the Red Hat Society enjoyed a lovely luncheon at Memories Restaurant in Alamogordo, New Mexico on December 12, 2015 with fifteen members and two guests in attendance. Guests were Patricia from Tularosa, New Mexico and Susan Elrod (daughter of Florence) from Logan, New Mexico.
Part of the FUN was writing a collaborative poem with each verse starting with a letter from Merry Christmas. Queen Ladybird aka Carla Kerr read the finished product and it was quite amusing.
Each member and guest received a gift bag of goodies from Queen Ladybird. After dining, each attendee who had brought a gift pulled a number from a glass and each went to the large pile of gifts and chose one. There were many oohs and aahs as each unwrapped her gift.
Members played Happy Birthday on their kazoos to Dorothy E. and she received a gift to celebrate. The kazoos woke the other patrons of the restaurant and they applauded and laughed with us.
