Place your right hand on your "Red Hat" and your left hand on
I, ___________________________ do solemnly swear on my "Red Hat" that I will do my best to uphold the spirit of the Red Hat Society.
I greet this age of "mental pause" with verve, humor, and fun.
I take my silliness seriously, as it is the comic relief of life.
In the Spirit of Friendship and Sisterhood, I join my Red Hat and
Pink Hat sisters as we go for the gusto together!
Beneath our frivolity, we share a bond of affection,
common life experience and a genuine enthusiasm towards the future.
I promise to regularly practice having fun, do those things
I have waited to do, while I paid my dues in life, and wear jewelry
til I fall over.
I promise never, ever, to wear knee highs with sandals
and to dispel the notion a Woman My Age is Old!
This I pledge in the spirit of the Red Hat Society as envisioned by
the Exalted Queen Mother Sue Ellen Cooper and with
a Hudson Valley Violets' hattitude!
