Mason’s Scarlet Punchers, as always on the cutting edge of blue-haired ladies everywhere (or is that an oxymoron?) remember Lady Bird Johnson’s motto, “Beautify America.” Although we feel wearing purple outfits and red hats already qualifies us as “beautifying America,” this month the Scarlet Punchers take beautifying even further, with our annual “Tacky Jewelry Exchange.”
Monday, May 19th, at 11:30 AM, the Scarlet Punchers will have a pot luck salad lunch at the always-beautiful home of Lynn Hedges, where we will enjoy her garden at its peak, something we look forward to all year. Following lunch, bags will be produced, numbers will be drawn, and jewelry so tacky and gaudy it might be seen from outer space will be exchanged. As at our annual Christmas party, the Tacky Jewelry Exchange will follow the Chinese auction format, where not only can you get great (or hideous, depending on your perspective) jewelry, you can steal someone else’s jewelry, or have yours stolen from you. Remembering the debacles in Christmases past, I would like to, at this time, remind all Scarlet Punchers (and others - you know who you are) how unattractive whining and temper tantrums really are.
Anyway, we hope to see all Scarlet Punchers, and any woman of a certain age, who would like to join us for food, fellowship, and fun (remember, we accomplish NOTHING productive - it’s in the bylaws), at Lynn’s. As always, in addition to the Tacky Jewelry (a real draw!!), we also have bona fide prizes. So if you won a prize last month, at the home of Jan Appleby (and boy did we have fun there!), bring a prize! For directions/more information, please call Lenore Newsom at 347-2766, Mary Carlman at 347-9605, or Lynn Hedges at 347-0152. Red Hats are optional, but highly recommended!! Remember, it’s our patriotic duty to beautify America, one rhinestone bangle bracelet at a time!
