Red Hat Happy

Have you ever heard of the Red Hat Society? It's a group of women, usually over 50, who belong to a larger group of women who refuse to grow old gracefully? It is a national group! Check out the Red Hat Society website at www.redhatsociety.com. It all began when a group of girls that used to hang out, just to have fun, were trying to find 'the perfect birthday gift'. They ended up giving a red hat! Thus the red hat society was born. It has evolved into many chapters throughout the country as a sisterhood that embraces growing older. When I turned 50, I decided that I wanted to be the 'queen' of something. I knew about the red hat society but always thought the girls were a lot older than me. I decided to start my own chapter so that I could hang out with the younger bunch (those around the 50 age). We became the Salt Air Sisters Staying Young (SASSY). I have enjoyed my girls so much! We visit a lot of restaurants that you wouldn't normally go to alone. We have supported some of our sisters who have survived cancer. We have cried and laughed and hugged for many different reasons. If you are missing something in your life and feel like you need some 'hangout' friends, I suggest you try the Red Hat sisters! Look up the chapter in your neighborhood. If you are under 50, you can join, as well. You have to wear the pink hat and lavender dress rather than the red hat and purple dress but you get to hang out with some awesome women! Have you ever heard of the www.redhatsociety.com. If not, you should check into it. They know exactly what you need!
