The most recent gathering of the Red Hat ladies honored our Hawthorne Fire Department.  We had breakfast at Maggie’s with fireman Al Ferrell in attendance. The decorations included fire trucks and fire heroes and “sheroes”, a large fire hydrant loaded with cupcakes and cute plush dalmatians wearing helmets. There was a fireman scramble word contest and several short articles that were read honoring firemen.  They donated $100 to the fire department.

Last month they celebrated with a luau; colorful tropical decorations and a wonderful potluck.  The Red Hatters made a donation to the CAHS back to school program.

Some correspondence was received from Mable Beer. They have missed her since she moved to Colorado with her son.

Next month’s gathering will be at Maggie’s at 9 a.m. on March 28 and the theme will be Halloween.  If you would like to join them, they would love to see your smiling face.
