Red Hat Ladies!
I belonged to a Red Hat Society chapter when I lived in Sarasota. It was mostly a group of ladies from the church where Bob and I attended, St. Paul Lutheran Church. We called ourselves the Sorority of the Red Hat Sisters. We were together for nearly five years! I'm sure it would have continued to this day, but I moved to Dallas in October 2007 and I was the Queen Mother and organizer. I think the group had a couple more outings, but then it fell apart. I really missed being part of the Red Hat Society and I missed having the closeness with my women friends. So, I decided to try organizing a Red Hat chapter within our church here, Emanuel Lutheran Church. Today was our first outing. There were six of us who went to lunch at the Adolphus Hotel dining room. I think we were the only ones in the dining room, so it was very quiet and nice for talking and getting to know one another. We all had a wonderful time. I'm looking forward to our next outing already, which will be in November.
