Think Pink - Guest Post by Ruby RedHat, Red Hat Society

Monday, October 3rd 2016 @ 10:30 AM

Hey there! Can you believe it’s already October? Where has the time gone?

I’m happy to be writing this month’s post, because I want to share with you an aspect of the Red Hat Society that not many people are familiar with: Pink Hatters.

Pink Hatters, or Pinkies as we lovingly refer to them, are Queens and Members under the age of 50.  We also refer to them as The Red Hat Society's "Ladies In Waiting". These Members wear pink hats and lavender clothing until they reach their momentous 50th Birthday and REDuate to the red hats and purple regalia the RHS is famous for.

Today, I’d like to share this testimonial from Pink Hatter, Cynthia, of the Precious Jewels Chapter:

"I joined the Precious Jewels Chapter of Long Beach, California in January of 2014 under the leadership of Queen Bettie Bishop. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made! 

Since the first day that I walked into the group meeting, I have felt love and acceptance from all the women in the group. We have fun by celebrating each others' birthdays, holidays and fellowshipping with other Red Hat Groups. As a working mom and professional, it gives me such a pleasure to be able to spend time with other women, who 'just want to have fun!' 

My monthly weekend Precious Jewels meeting gives me that extra 'push' that I need to make it through the busy stressful weeks that follow our meetings. Queen Bettie has proven to be a queen, who encompasses all the traits of a good leader: honesty, ability to delegate, a great communicator, outstanding sense of humor, confidence and the commitment to the vision of the Red Hat Society. How could I not love a group, where a 90 yea- old woman out dances me?! (smile).

Thank you for allowing me to brag on the Precious Jewels of Long Beach!"

Isn’t that wonderful? I just love that we are a Sisterhood of women who come from all walks of life, age groups and share the common desire to celebrate each day in Fun and Friendship.

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.
