Social Scene: Newcomers celebrate Halloween at October luncheon

Doreen Herriman
Special to the Eagle

The Newcomers members had so much fun preparing costumes and dressing up for the October Halloween luncheon. They groups were very creative in their ideas and the makeup and outfits they put together were truly amazing.

We had Blind Flamingos, Barbie dolls, Day of the Dead, Mexican Train, Geisha Girls, Pals in Paradise, Tiki Bar, Marco Witches and Cruella and the 101 Dalmatian’s.  We were in awe as each group paraded by the group and the judges. 

We are very thankful for the three Hideaway employees, who took time out of their day to determine the winner of the Best, Funniest and Most Creative Costume. With great anticipation the following groups were announced as winners in the three categories:  Best Costume:  Beach Babes Barbie Dolls Costume; Funniest:  Sea Gals Blind Flamingos Costume; Most Creative:  Gulf Girls Cruella Deville and the 101 Dalmatian’s Costume. Thanks again judges for your time. I am sure it was difficult to choose the winner, as each group had great themes and wonderful costumes.

After a tasty lunch and all of the Halloween fun, the luncheon concluded with the traditional sponsors’ prizes and 50/50 raffle.
