Each month the members (ladies 50 and over) of Rubies & Garnets get together at a restaurant to have lunch, acknowledge Birthdays, (birthday gals wear purple hats and red dresses) draw for prizes, share news of local RH events and celebrate. BUT....the best thing about it is the laughter, fun, comraderie and to see who has bought a new hat.
When we arrive at the restaurant we sign in and leave our exchange gift if we brought one. We can buy a gift ticket for $1 and if we win a gift, then we have to bring one back the next time. Always fun!
We also have been having "free lunch" drawings where we can buy $1 ticket for a chance to get our money back for our lunch.
Sometimes it's difficult to find a local restaurant that has a separate room than can accomodate our large group.....30 - 40 members, and it gets "cozy" and noisy.
