"The Red Hat Society began as a result of a few women deciding to greet middle age with verve, humor and elan. We believe silliness is the comedy relief of life, and since we are all in it together, we might as well join red-gloved hands and go for the gusto together. Underneath the frivolity, we share a bond of affection, forged by common life experiences and a genuine enthusiasm for wherever life takes us next."

- Sue Ellen Cooper, Queen Mother

You must be a woman of 50 or over (or you may be a Pink Hatter under 50), and you must attend functions in full regalia, (red hat, purple outfit for women 50 and over, or pink hat and lavender outfit for women under 50).

Ladies are strongly encouraged to follow these color guidelines, and to NOT wear purple/red until they have reached THE BIRTHDAY. This adds an element of fun to aging, which we think is invaluable to women in our society who have learned to dread aging and avoid it at all costs. We believe that aging should be something anticipated with excitement, not something to dread.

Photo by James Jones (c)2008

Ardelle Herzing, from Port Allegany, shows Pastor Lynn Geiser
her latest oil painting. The painting is Ardelle's own rendition of
Thomas Blackshear's famous painting "Forgiven." Ardelle says
the work is divinely inspired. It took her three weeks to paint.

The Inn On Maple Street was the place to be last
Sunday afternoon. The Inn hosted an Open House
and a reception for Ardelle Herzing, an extremely
talented local artist who displayed over 40 pieces
of her collection of paintings she has done.

It was Ardelle's day as friends and admirers gathered
at The Inn on Maple Street, looked over her paintings,
and snacked on Red Velvet Cake, tea and coffee.

Joan, also an artist, will display her paintings, mostly
landscapes, through October at the Inn on Maple St.
