The making of the next governor. (Really?)
On June 6th Rancho Murieta's Gladabouts gathered for their monthly BINGO game at the home of Billye Ericksen. Billye is the Queen of Theme and always crafts fun centerpieces and decorations.
On Monday, the day before the Primary Election, Billye selected a VoteVoteVote theme. Posted on her front door was a poster of her beloved pooch Klasi urging the Gladabouts to pick their next Governor before playing Bingo. Once inside the ladies assembled puzzle pieces to determine their vote. The voting process was as unique as the slate of candidates. The ladies assembled puzzle pieces blind side up to determine the next Governor of California. When the Gladabouts polling place was closed it was determined that the winner was Lady Gaga. The ladies then enjoyed Bingo and delicious desserts prepared by member Margaret Wonder.
Highlights of some other recent Gladabouts activities include a variety of outings. On April 17th we attended the El Dorado Musical Theater for a fantastic performance of CATS and lunch at Mimi's Café in Folsom. As always cast members honored us by posing for group pictures. On May 21st we attended the RMA BINGO game where we were much luckier in winning the raffle drawings than actually winning game prizes. On May 26th the Gladabouts enjoyed the performance of Courtney Bowles featuring a wide range of music including Broadway show tunes at the Rancho Murieta Women's Club Luncheon. Margaret Wonder was honored on her 85th birthday when Courtney Bowles led the audience in singing Happy Birthday to her. Both Margaret and member Cathy Bacon, who will celebrate her 90th Birthday on June 13th, were presented with lovely rose floral centerpieces. On June 4th we gathered for lunch in Folsom followed by the chick flick Letters to Juliet.
