I want to thank each of the Red Hat ladies for making me feel so welcome at your event. I had never attended a Red Hat event before. I appreciated the loan of a beautiful red hat, the delicious refreshments and tea, and the laughs we all had with the opening of the "tacky gifts". It was quite a site to see all the purple and red outfits--so fun! You are all a great bunch, hope I will have the opportunity to join you again sometime. Happy Traveling! Kay
