Topper Red Hatters enjoyed a scenic trip to Salisbury Tuesday, October 18th. The occasion marked our regular monthly luncheon-meeting at Morning- star Mercantile and Restaurant... a favor- ite dining spot. The drive to Petersburg via Athens and then south to Salisbury is beautiful this leaf-turning time of year. A few of us took a country road south of Athens to the Camp Cilca Road that winds through a hilly area along the Sangamon River where we entered Salisbury from the north and drove right into the restaurant parking lot. It's a wonderful place to dine and relax. Food is always excellent and slowly savored in the quaint main dining room. Although a nice variety of sandwiches, salads; soups and desserts are available, most of us enjoyed the day's special. A generous serving of crepes basking in a tasty sauce of chicken and broccoli bubbly-hot from the oven and rushed to the table, seemed to be a favorite on Tues- day. Included was, a slice of onion dill bread, and a choice of salads. Now I ask you, what more could anybody ask for? Several members chose freshly baked pies from their vast list of fantastic des- serts. Co-hostesses were Linda Dierker and Pat Straumann who furnished favors of the season. Halloween goblets filled with appropriate candies graced  each member's place. I can't say enough about the friendli- ness and efficiency of Pat Adamski's wait: staff. Always pleasant and courteous, they served their customers like well-oiled machines. Pat, the owner, has trained them well and her exuberance shows in her smile and professionalism. Most of us would heartily recommend Morningstar to those looking for a unique and special place to relax over lunch and good conversation. It is closed on Mon- days and it's a good idea to make reserva- tions first. November!s luncheon-meeting will be held at Tuscan's in Decatur, Tuesday, November 15th, at ll:30am: Co-host- esses are Marilyn Edwards and Kathy Voile. Call Marilyn at 792'5735 or Kathy at 792-3259 to confirm your reservation no later than November 13th. If you need a ride, call any Topper Red Hatter member. Come join us for a fun lun- cheon. Guests are always welcome. Just remember to call either co-hostess prior to November 13th if you'd like to attend. We do welcome you.
