The Red Hat Society is for all women over the age of 50, you can join younger and you are called a pinkie. It is for FUN raising and nothing else but fun, fellowship, and getting out and making friends.
Since meeting my now husband in 2002 we have lived in 3 countries (2 of them twice) and worked and travelled extensively, twice living in a motorhome for extended periods as we ‘did’ Australia and Europe.
While it has all been a lot of fun and a fantastic experience, along the way I lost touch with friends and acquaintances.
I had seen the Red Hat ladies out at a function one time and they looked like a fun bunch of ladies. So I contacted them and joined and they helped me find a group and I got started. That was 6 years ago. I belong to several groups now and have met a lot of fun ladies some of whom have become really good friends that I can call for a coffee or a chat anytime. It is an instant social life. Both my sisters are members now so we see each other more.
I also created spin off group with 5 of my besties and their husbands and we go to shows, restaurants, walks, outings etc as a group once a month.
When you move round you lose touch and once you retire it is hard to make new friends. This was my answer and it has changed my life.
