Newcomer's Birthday Lucheon

Every January the monthly Newcomer luncheon is the birthday luncheon to celebrate each members special day.

There is a random draw by each month, so there is a birthday gift given to one person from every month of the year. I actually won the March birthday present this year, a beautiful plate with a rooster on it.

Lunch was a little Mexican restaurant in Elk Grove. Not the best by any means, but a reasonable place so that all members can come if they want to.

There was a large crowd and every one was in a celebratory mood.

Lots of gaiety and laughter.

I was also lucky and won the door prize which is a gorgeously deigned pitcher with a Mediterranean design. Someone had gotten a birthday gift that is a plate that matched this design. They brought it to my attention, and traded me so I could have the matching pieces. It looks beautiful in the house. I really love both pieces!

The luncheons are nice for me because I see many members that I would not see otherwise.

It's also a good time to get together with close friends for lunch out as well.

Another successful birthday luncheon.

Looks like a good day and I am envious of the restaurant supply place!
