Today is All Saints Day and remembering my mom’s birthday, Mildred Barnhouse Dye 1916-2008.
The New Mat Red Hats were invited by Dorothy Hendricks to visit and hold the October meeting at her new place of residence in Devola. Arriving for the evening of fun, Dorothy and Vivian Dye met us properly attired for October. A purple vision, a cat that glowed in the dark greeted three witches, devil, kitty kat, food demonstrator, decorated vest, dust cap lady, green wig leprechaun. Hand crocheted doilies were placed by each setting and two more were given for the door prize. Other games were drop the closepen in the bottle, word search of Halloween, guess number of candy in jar, favorite number and looking at bottom of plate hoping not to find a sticker. Halloween decorations were abundant. The fun time girls attending were Martha Lindsley, Sue Altizer, Patti Cline, Marilyn Tilton, Dianna Evans, Debbie Swallow, Maybell Browne, Nancy Petty, Norma Jean Antill.
Plans are to invite our Midway Victorian Rose Red Hat friends to our Nov. 8 Civil War Tea Party at the New Matamoras Senior Center.
