Twelve members and one guest of the Red Hat Society New Mexico Roadrunner Chapter in Alamogordo, New Mexico gathered in the home of Gail Swineford who hostessed a Deli Luncheon/Cupcake Decorating Event assisted by Trudy Reese. Our guest was Shelley and she is seriously considering becoming a Pink Hatter with us. Upon arriving, Trudy presented each of us with aprons she had made, a sure indication that things might get a bit messy with all that frosting being pumped out.
After our "build your own" deli sandwich, delicious potato salad and iced tea, along with much visiting and laughter, we began decorating cupcakes. Gail provided various colors of tubes of frosting and it was left up to our imaginations to decorate them as we wished. Each was also provided with a small pink flamingo to encourage them to attend RHSPD2020 next August, 2020. The flamingos promptly appeared atop the cupcake creations.
Our Pink Hatter, Alice Cuevas, was unable to hostess an earlier event and she brought gifts for everyone that she had bought for that occasion. They were small inspirational books on Kindness, Joy, Praise, etc. so everyone went home with nice gifts.

|But wait, Did someone stick a flamingo on her cupcake??|
|And yet another flamingo popped up|
|I do believe we have a flamibreakout|

Thanks to Douglas A. Kerr for processing the pictures.
This is all I have to say for now.
