The Improper Bostonians, from Massachusetts, are not only one of the Red Hat Society’s longest-standing chapters (they became a chapter in May of 2001) but also one of the most active!
Queen Angel writes, “These pictures are from the ‘Garden of Hope’ which is located at the Boston City Hall Plaza. The Garden of Hope is dedicated to cancer victims. We, as a chapter, donated a brick and also flowers which were planted in the garden. This is the inscription I had written for our brick. We have about 10 members that have been diagnosed with cancer, and fortunately, all are survivors!
Although the Red Hat Society is mainly about having fun, our chapter has decided to make donations annually to the Cancer Society. We have made many donations to other organizations as well.” What a way to help other women!
“How do I participate in events?”The Red Hat Society hosts several events a year and Members are highly encouraged to attend at least one! These events are a great way to meet Red Hatters from all over the world. This year, we’ve been to Washington, DC, for Red Hat Society Day, and we’re preparing to go to New Orleans in August and march in the London New Year’s Day Parade next January! Participation in these events is easy: sign up and show up! We’ll take care of the rest! You can read about (and register for) our current events here!
In addition to the international events, Queens and Supporting Members have access to the Online Event Calendar, an excellent way to find out about events in your area and post your own events for others to see. To participate in these events, Members can log in to the website and view, post, and RSVP to events.
