A Pirate’s Life for Me by Ruby RedHat

Thursday, September 17th 2015 @ 10:40 AM

Ahoy mateys! I’ve been brushing up on my pirate slang as I prepare for International Talk Like A Pirate day on September 19, and the RHS Virtual Pirate Party on September 24th.


No one loves celebrating pirates more than the Red and Pink Hatters of the Red Hat Society.

In fact, we have Chapters dedicated to Pirate Wench fun and they really get into their roles, wearing eye patches, carrying blunderbusses and gleefully celebrating the greatest treasure of all- the friendships of like-minded women around the world.

Why do we have Pirate Chapters? I called on my dear friend and one of the original Pirate Wenches, Lady Di, of the Wenches Gone Wild Chapter to answer this question. Here’s what she had to say:

“RHS Pirate Chapters started in 2008 when Red Hat Society held a Regional Convention in Savannah GA, and one of the events was dinner at an authentic Pub historically used by Pirates.  Several Members, unbeknownst to one another, decided they should dress up as pirate wenches for the dinner. When we all showed up at the restaurant, over half the room was filled with Red and Pink Hat Pirate Wenches!  We were a sight to behold, and we’ve been ‘ARRRrrring’ ever since.”

Join us for the ARRR-H-S Virtual Pirate Party

On September 24th, Hatters will don their blinged pirate hats for a pirate adventure on Facebook. We’ll set sail at 9 a.m. PST and will dock at 5 p.m. PST. Don’t get shipwrecked by a bad connection! Here’s the official video invitation Hatquarters created for the event. (I love the music!)

For anyone unfamiliar with a virtual Facebook party, it’s an organized event on Facebook that is housed on a group page. Members can check in throughout the day and share their photos and updates with RHS Members and other women interested in learning more about the RHS.

I welcome you to channel your inner pirate wench and join us for this fun adventure.

Yo-ho-yo-ho a pirate’s life for me!

RUBY REDHAT is the official mascot of the Red Hat Society.  In the year 2000, a little lady named Ruby appeared, out of nowhere, on the computer screen of EQM Sue Ellen's daughter, Andrea (aka Princess Daughter). Princess Daughter was working on the first Red Hat Society website and when Ruby got wind of it, she just volunteered her services as a representative (mascot?) for the entire membership. Ruby had recently finished compiling her Top Ten (plus one) Rules for Living and she had a feeling that both she and her rules would be able to help the Red Hat Society clarify its members and its purpose to the world. We are all thrilled to have her represent the little girl inside all of us, who is ready and willing to come out and play again in every woman who invites her to do so.
