For those of you who do not know, the Red Hat Society was inspired by the poem “Warning” by Jenny Joseph, which reads:
When I am an old woman I shall wear purple
With a red hat which doesn’t go, and doesn’t suit me.
And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves
And satin sandals, and say we’ve no money for butter.
I shall sit down on the pavement when I’m tired
And gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells
And run my stick along the public railings
And make up for the sobriety of my youth.
I shall go out in my slippers in the rain
And pick flowers in other people’s gardens
And learn to spit.
Mason County Red Hats meet monthly for food, friendship, laughs, and the occasional trip down memory lane. We welcome all women to join us on the second Monday of the month as we defy old age one purple outfit at a time!
This month we invite women over 50 to a potluck lunch on Monday, July 8th at 11:30 AM, at the house of Joan Williams. As usual, there are prizes!! For more information please call Lenore Newsom at 347-2766, Mary Carlman at 347-9605, or Lynn Hedges at 347-0152. Purple outfits and red hats are optional but we insist on having a good time!
