Red Hatters Attend the Flickinger Guild Tea

Sunday, October 15, 2017

 Somehow I managed to skip over a very important event so herewith is the report and photos taken at the Flickinger Center Theater Guild Turquoise and Silver Tea which took place on Saturday, October 15, 2017 at the Tays Center here in Alamogordo, New Mexico. This is probably the social event of the year here and is always well attended and tons of FUN.

They have a silent auction with everything you could imagine to bid on. Then there is a fabulous style show with local residents strutting their stuff on the stage from many retailers not only in Alamogordo, but surrounding areas as well. Entertainment was provided by several sets of local talent. The Alamogordo High School ROTC students were servers and they did an excellent job.

Eleven members of the New Mexico Roadrunner Chapter of the Red Hat Society attended. I attended dressed in the ensemble I wore when I was selected "Divine Diva" at "Hatters Get There Kicks on Route 66" in Wichita, Kansas. Several Red Hatters won door prizes and a grand time was had by all.

Vice Queen Donna Williams with Nadia Sikes looking so great
Margie Purcella sporting her stunning bra hat she made at a chapter crafts day the first year we were organized. The emcee said she looked like a Vegas show girl!

This is yours truly in the same ensemble I wore in Wichita, Kansas at their Red Hat Convention when I was selected "Divine Diva" of the convention.
The tea was, dare I say, "Divine"? We all had a grand time and our bra hats were a big hit. Everyone wanted to take pictures of us. This was a new venue for this event and it was absolutely fabulous. The Tays is much larger and the models were able to walk around the tables giving us a better look at the fashions being modeled. I should have taken more pictures because several of the girls won door prizes, but we were split between two tables and that made it a bit more difficult to do a good job of it.

Thanks to Douglas A. Kerr, Photography for taking the picture of me.

This is all I have to say for now.
