Red Hatters Enjoy a Game Day at the Veenpere Home

Saturday, February 9, 2019

Members of the New Mexico Roadrunner Chapter of the Red Hat Society in Alamogordo, New Mexico attended a Game Day and Luncheon hosted by members Carmen Veenpere and Jean Courtier.
Sometimes we play several games, but today we played Toss-Up, a dice game brought to our attention by member Alice Evans. We were able to get through one full game before we broke for lunch consisting of salad, pizza, freshly baked bread brought by Karen Townsend and a lovely fruit bread. Dessert was chocolate coconut cookies and brownies provided by Jean along with tea and coffee.

As Darla Shelley is moving away to Yucca, Arizona, we presented her with a lovely red handbag/carry-all, a card signed by all and sang "For She's a Jolly Good Sister" to bid her farewell. We are hopeful that she will find a new chapter in Yucca or nearby. She will be missed.

The winner of the first game was Darla Shelley and of the second game was Carmen Veenpere. We truly paid homage to our #POWERofFUN hashtag.

We hope to see everyone next month on March 15-16, 2019 in Las Cruces, New Mexico at the joint chapters Red Hat Western Funvention there.

This is all I have to say for now.
