In 2011, Hatters around the world sent in their submissions for the first "Nominate A Hatter" contest hosted by The Red Hat Society. In this contest, we asked Hatters to tell us about some women who had made a positive impact on their Hatting experience and the experience of others around them. The nominations were read and after quite the selection process, The Red Hat Society crowned its first-ever "Hatter of the Year": Queen Linda, also known as Queen Too Too of the Laizzez Le Bon Temp Roulez Chapter.
The Hatter of the Year announcement took place at the RHS Big Easy Bash International Convention in New Orleans, and it could not have been awarded to a more incredible person. Queen Too Too is an exemplary Hatter who loves the Sisterhood and promotes it wherever she is. She is a fireball of loyalty, compassion and spunk, and she dedicates much of her time to the well-being of those in her community, especially the elderly. In fact, you can read about Queen Too Too's latest project: "Hats of Love" in the latest issue of Red Hatter Matters.
So what does it mean when a Hatter receives this wonderful honor from the Red Hat Society? She becomes a celebrity in the Sisterhood, and she will be featured in future Friday Broadcasts, which is the Red Hat Society's weekly publication!
This year, the Hatter of the Year award will be announced at the 2012 Golden Age of Glamour International Convention, and there is just ONE WEEK LEFT to nominate a Hatter who you think would be perfect for this honor. If you would like to know more about the Nominate A Hatter contest, click here!
Thank you Queen Too Too for being a wonderful RHS Ambassador and Hatter of the Year!
