Prairie Chicks Host a Halloween Hoot

Halloween stories were pouring into Hatquarters thanks to Ruby RedHat’s Facebook request for Hatters to submit their Halloween adventures. This story came from Queen Ruth of the Prairie Chicks Chapter (Manitoba, Canada). Their Halloween Hoot attracted several “celebrities,” goblins, witches and other characters that were ready to play!

“The “witching” hour was upon us!! For one day our “Chicks” turned into witches, pirates, clowns, cowgirls, Mexican Caballeros’, ghosts, goblins, Draculas and many more strange and wonderful creatures as we celebrated at our Halloween party. Anne of Green Gables, Raggedy Anne, Mary Poppins and a teeny bopper from the 50’s all decked out in a poodle skirt dropped in too. Our own Sweet Stella took home one of the top prizes for her 50’s costume.

We got an early start to the day, and how better to begin the festivities than to sit down to a potluck dinner? We needed to build up a lot of energy for the activities ahead such as the costume parade, dancing to the Monster Mash and playing the many contests and games that Vivacious Verna had prepared. We even had to stop for dessert and coffee in the mid afternoon, just to build up our strength! Our silent auction was a huge success, the games, music and dancing were a lot of fun, Mary Poppins sang and danced for us and the whole day was a great “Halloween Hoot.” Congratulations to all of our Prairie Chick sisters, who attended, wore costumes, participated in all of the activities and took home prizes. We had a very special Red Hatters day filled with fun, friendship, love and always a lot of laughter. That is what we do when we gather in sweet sisterhood!!!!!!”
