Queen Ladybird aka Carla Kerr and Queen Curvy aka Kimberly Gugliotta of the New Mexico Roadrunner Chapter were guests of Queen Laura Kidwiler of the Sun City Hot Flashes Chapter of the Red Hat Society at their very first "Reduation" ceremony for Mary O Luna. Mary joined the Red Hat Society as a Pink Hatter, a designation for women from ages 21-49. When one reaches their 50th birthday, a Reduation Ceremony takes place at which time they are presented with their first Red Hat. The ceremony was well planned and executed by Queen Laura and her Co-Queen, Shari Coffman. Also in attendance were Queen Kathy Crenshaw (Betty Boop Chapter, El Paso) and Queen Susan Amtillon (Chaparral Butterflies Chapter, Chaparral, NM);
Mary received many lovely gifts in celebration of her "Reduation" and the food was absolutely delicious to a fault. The owner of Marabosos Tea Shop is a fabulous cook.
