Norman Wilks celebrated his 80th birthday in Taos, New Mexico, during the Labor Day weekend. Friends who meet monthly for brunch went with him.

There was a dinner at the Stakeout Restaurant hosted by Karen and Herb Klontz, Peggy and John Crawford, Pat Snyder and Nancy and Les Conner (who could not be there.)

The next day Olive and Gerry Austin, Randy Floyd, Michael Smith and Florence Birdwell entertained at a Mexican luncheon at Rancho Plaza Grill.  That night Marion and Atlee Vernon, Betty Bradley and Ed Huycke were dinner hosts at Lambert’s Restaurant.

The final morning of the weekend, Betty and Norris Price were hosts for brunch in their home, 12 miles from Taos. Co-hosting were Katy and Jim Davis, Joan Gilmore and Al McLaughlin.
