Red Hat Society Scavenger Hunt Request:
The Red Hat Society is a social group for ladies 50 and older. There are a few of us who are not 50 yet, called pink hatters or pinkies. The idea for the club started with women who still have zest for life. We meet once a month at different host locations.
Have you heard of the poem "Warning" by Jenny Joseph? It is better known as "When I Am An Old Women I Shall Wear Purple." That is what represents us. There are Red Hatters all over the globe. The rules of the club are "there are no rules".
Our chapter is in King Salmon, Alaska. We call it the bush. Only way in and out is by plane or barge during the summer. We are on the Aleusian Isle that has a population of about 700. It is 17 miles from one end to the other. There are no movie theaters or bowling alleys, only a couple of restaurant bars. It is my month to host and after seeing your site I have chosen to give a scavenger hunt.
There is plenty of history with the Red Hats. I hope you can help. Thank you.
