I was lucky enough to be invited by my dear friend to join her for the luncheon. Upon arriving, we paid our fare, and were given name tags. Being frugal, the name tags were cut from brown shopping bags, and trimmed with orange ribbon.
The tables were decorated, using the paper sack theme. This time using brown lunch bags, a little tissue and some dried grasses. Aren't they clever? Pinterest, eat your heart out!!
The emcee reminded me of Bea Arthur. Sue is a retired Jr. High, or High School teacher, and had not lost her sense of humor. She entertained the ladies with her quick wit and kept the program moving.
The opening act was a Sonny and Cher lip sink, which was absolutely hilarious.
After the entertainment, we were invited to get our salads, made by the members of the church. I didn't get a chance to get a photo of the salad bar, but I did get one of the dessert table. Aren't they wonderful?
After our delicious lunch, the fashion show began.
All kidding aside, in her humorous way, she reminded the audience that October was Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and everyone who has not had a mammogram in the last year, should make an appointment to do so.
After the fashion show, there were a couple of 50/50 raffles. In keeping with the recycling theme of the day, the tickets were used playing cards. One purchased a ticket for a $1.00 or 6 for $5.00. A ticket was a card, which you ripped in half, put half in the basket and kept the other half for the drawing.
Look at all the tickets I bought, and didn't win a thing!!!
Oh well, it all went for a good cause! The ladies of this church are doing some updating of the rectory with the profit of today's frugal event.
And that's the way it is......................
