The Rockin’ Red Ranchers on a recent Hoot.

The Rockin’ Red Ranchers celebrated February 29, Leap Day, with a Hoot to the Cinemark Roanoke to see Eddie the Eagle. This movie was inspired by true events from the 1988 Calgary Winter Games. Some of our ladies remembered the real event. A Hoot is when one of our members invites her sisters to join her for a fun activity. After the movie everyone enjoyed lunch at On the Border. This Hoot was sponsored by Betty Gardner.

On March 24 the Rockin’ Red Ranchers descended on historic downtown Grapevine for a full, fun day of shopping. Anchored by Main Street, this walkable preserved historic area is home to wine tasting rooms, Grapevine Vintage Railroad, the Palace Arts Center, one-of-a-kind shops, boutiques and restaurants. The hostesses for this event were Katherine Vess, Elizabeth Gage, Sandy Schroeder, Judy Osborn and Kathy Farrell. The hostesses told the merchants on Main Street that we were coming so we were warmly welcomed.

On March 29 Carol Cieslik invited us back to the Cinemark Roanoke for another Hoot to see My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, and once again we ate at On the Border. The Rockin’ Red Ranchers’ primary purpose is social interaction and bonding among women. We promote periods of “recess” from the cares and duties of everyday life in which members gather for no other purpose than to play.
