7 I= I= D P to o Topper Red Hatters: On the go... The Olive Garden in Decatur served as host for our Red Hat group Tuesday, May 19. The day was beautiful.., sunny and bright! All of us were glad to be out and about after such a cool spring that seemed to linger on and on. Jenny Sams of Decatur was a guest for lunch. It was also nice to have Joyce Max- heimer back with us today. As usual, pasta lovers regaled in the wide variety of Italian dishes and special- ties available. Their famous soups and salad combo was chosen as well as several other dishes tasty on the palate. For the first time, I was.disappointed in what I chose. Four small pillows of lasagna, stuffed with mushrooms, and covered in a cheese sauce was too expensive. What should have been filled with mushrooms probably contained no more than a teaspoon of finely chopped mushrooms in the entire dish. But, happily, everybody else seemed to enjoy their lun- cheon choice. There was a nice surprise that countered my disappointment. Since the waitress for- got to ask if anybody cared for dessert, the Olive Garden sent everybody home with a choice of free dessert. Do hope the poor waitress did not receive a dressing-down for her negligence. Otherwise, the wait staff did a great job and I'm sure our generous tips made her feel better! Door prize was won by Patsy Garlits... t'was a beautiful plant of red geraniums, Our June luncheon will be held at Mt. Pu- laski's new Calm Creek Tearoom at 11:30a Tuesday, June 17.

Submitted by Pat Straumann Needs a Bigger Flag Don Maxheimer needs a flag, at least 10 x20-feet. He'd prefer larger if possible. Don raises Glory on his boom truck on 121 on all patriotic holidays and real. ly needs a bigger flag by 4 th of July (he knows Flag Day may cut it too close). If you have a good size flag - or can set i him in the direction of one - contact Don or the paper. Don has his reasons for needing a really good size flag - and those reasons are all relative.
