On April 24th The Red Hat Valley Gals from Pembroke, Ontario hosted their 3rd Annual Meet & Mingle Hoot. The theme this year was "Cinderella's Ball". We had the entrance transformed to look like the doors of a Castle. After the ladies entered they were escorted to their tables by one of our two Prince Charmings. Myself Queen Terri and my VQueen Debbie convinced our DH's to get dressed in their tuxes and do this for us.
There were several vendors present which all 75 ladies keep busy throughout the evening.Our tables had glass slippers on top of champagne glasses filled with sparkly purple glitter straw. Each lady had a red or pink paper shoe decorated with glitter at their place. We had a band that played all the oldies for us to dance to.
The mayor was invited and after a lovely ham supper he gave a nice speech about taking time from our hectic lives to have fun - just as we do at our events. He said that it was the most colorful he had ever seen the hall decorated. Before the supper Pam presented the 2 Prince Charmings and the Mayor with bibs to wear (she made them) so they wouldn't drop anything on their tuxes or His Worships Chain of Office. That got a big laugh from all there.
After the speech our local newspaper reporter arrived for photos and to get the story . The next day on the front page was a big picture of myself and Debbie both giving the Mayor a smooch on the cheek for being such a great fellow to attend an event with all those women. Check out the photos I've posted in my gallery.
