At my assisted living facility, we have a monthly tea party and although it is not linked with the Red Hat Society, I call it the "Red Hat Tea Party" My ladies have to wear a hat, whatever color they want, and they love it! I bring in extra hats of my own, if they don't have one to wear. We have a great chef that puts out a great spread. :pint:

There is a woman who came to my facility "The Tea Lady" and gave a lecture and demonstration on afternoon teas and she was great! If anyone out there is in the DC, Maryland, Virginia area, let me know and I will give you her number.

Hi All,

I taught a seminar sometime back. I know abot the Red Hat Society "Red Hatters" I have always thought that they are great. So I found a purple shirt with red hats on it, bought some red shoes, a red hat & purple pants. This is what I wore to teach in. I was so surprised that hardly anyone knew about this great group :-o

I am now reading the book: The Red Hat Society, Fun and Frendship After Fifity. This is a great book. Check out this link:How it got started I want to get my mom involed with something & this sounds like just the ticket. In fact I want to join, but I am not 50 yet so maybe I can with mom & they will not notice, you think :lol:

Anyway I feel that anyone who starts a chapter in their facility will be so glad they did. It will enrich the life of so many residents & yours as well. Check out this link:How to start a chapter

If I was going to start a group in a facility I would start by read the book, then share this with a group of ladies who would be interested in joining the group,(of course this would be on the calendar, with a catchy title) then proceeed to explain what the "Red Hatters" are about & plan our name, first meeting from here. If you have a chapter in your community why not invite them in to speak to your female residents.

One of the chapters in the book reads: All people need a place to belong, a place where thay feel that thay fit in without trying to hard. The Red Hat Society aspires to be just a place for the increasing number of women who are entering midlife determined to savor every minute of their existence. Will we manage to change the world? Maybe. maybe not. But we now that we will manage to make some changes inour own lives. We are not Alone!

Alos read the poem: by Jenny Joseph: Warning

Have lots of fun. 8-)


Also here is a poem by Jenny that is for the gents, about 3/4 way down the page:

One Man's Warning

     Thank you for correcting the information that was released. I recently took the test for certification with NAAPCC and it was a very comprehensive and thorough test. It was not a simple easy test to get you certified. You had to know the information in order to complete and pass. I would recommend this avenue to anyone especially if finances are a struggle for MEPAP I & II. I did purchase the book for long-term care seventh edition and without that I would have struggled.

    Celeste is awesome!! Anytime i have a question she gets right back with me and she is very informative. At first I didn't know if i was going to like the new course just for the fact my MEPAP course was the own pace and I work Full time plus have 3 kids. But i am loving it! It is very structured and with due dates I feel like i am holding myself more accountable for completed assignments sooner than later. It has actually been a beneficial change for me.. Thanks so much!!!

    Good Evening I wanted to let you know that I had completed mepap 1 and had only a couple weeks left of mepap 2 so I had looked at path 2 and have taken the activities test and passed so just sending in the application. I wanted to thank you for giving all your time to us even while Kathy was ill. It didn't go unnoticed, you was a great support and helpful at ideas or even different ways of changing thoughts to positive while feeling defeated. Thank You Stacey Passa AP-BC
