Crones celebrated the beginning of our seventh year. We have
about 30 active members, and four are original members from our first
meeting in January 2001. We enjoyed lunch and conversation at Queen
Jill's clubhouse. We had a small business meeting where we
discussed upcoming events, introduced our newest member, Linda Bywaters,
and with much enthusiasm congratulated Linda Brown on becoming
co-vice queen now that she has retired.
the flyswatter decorating contest. Yes, we decorated
flyswatters. Fifteen gals entered the contest, and Yes, they were
all Fabulous. We had prizes for the Most Beautiful (Char
Branton), Most Humorous (Jackie Nicolay), and Most Creative (Ida
Partlow) flyswatters. See the photos below.
(Jean Mounsey was standing in for Jackie Nicolay.) Everyone was so creative that they all deserved prizes.
the movie Calendar Girls, the Crimson Crones just completed
making a 2007 calendar. Vice Queen Jean Mounsey was in charge
of the enormous last-minute project, and passed the calendars out after
lunch. We were all pleased and look forward to giving copies to our
friends and relatives. The daughter of our member Jean Bryant
was the photographer. We salute and thank Kathy Bryant for
doing such a great job. We had so much fun during the shoot that we
decided we would do it again next year. Calendar
photos will be posted on our website soon.
left the clubhouse and drove or walked two blocks to Queen Jill's home
to attend a trunk show. Society Woman, a darling store in
Wilsonville that caters to red and pink hat ladies, filled Queen Jill's
home (4 rooms actually) with red and purple clothes, hats,
accessories, jewelry, slippers, and much more. We spent
approximately two hours shopping, browsing and having fun. The owner
of Society Woman, Sharon Arnett and her husband, did a
wonderful job of displaying all the merchandise and having a variety of
things for us to choose.
BIRTHDAY TO THE FABULOUS CRIMSON CRONES !!
