Alamogordo, New Mexico Red Hatters Hold Halloween Costume Party

Saturday, October 28, 2017

The New Mexico Roadrunner Chapter had a FUN Halloween Party at Vice Queen Donna Williams' home on Saturday, October 28, 2017. Normally we do these in home events potluck, but she insisted on providing everything. She has a lovely daughter-in-law (Judith) who makes the best lasagna I've ever eaten so we had lasagna, salad and garlic toast along with various pies for dessert. VQ Donna started us off with Mimosas which were yummy!

We played two games that I got from the Internet. One was seeing how many words one could make from the letters in Halloween. Jan Jennings won a lovely red evening purse with 50 words. Then we played multiple choice with questions about horror movies. Trudy Reese won a purple evening bag with a total of 15 correct.

Alice Johnston-Evans won a prize for best costume as a cowgirl. We celebrated two birthdays, Jan Jennings received a feathered fascinator and Jean Courtier received a headband fascinator as well! We kazooed Happy Birthday to them.

Gail Swineford came as a darling witch

Margie Purcella loves everything Western as you can see

Darla Shelley came as (would you believe it?) a Red Hatter
Trudy Reese came sporting a mustache and a palette on her thumb

One just cannot have a Halloween Costume Party without a pussy cat and doesn't Florence Dean make a lovely one
Bobbie Tanner makes a lovely "Country Girl" and she decorated that hat too!
Carmen Veenpere came in oriental attire but she came straight from the beauty salon and forgot her Red Hat!

Jean Courtier came as part of a witches coven (I think)

Thanks to Judith for her hard work in the kitchen. The lasagna was to die for and the garlic toast and salad made perfect luncheon fare for all of us. And, Thanks to Donna for making her lovely home available for this event.

This is all I have to say for now.
