Oregon Queen's Tea

Julia's Tea Room in Salem, Oregon

September 14th, 2002

When Oregon's first Red Hat Society chapters began in January 2001, we started with about nine chapters.  Now, 20 months later, we're up to at least 58 chapters and still growing.  Many of the queens in the Portland metropolitan areas know each other, but were eager to meet the queens who were farther away in Southern, Central, and Eastern Oregon, plus the lucky queens lived on the Oregon coast.

Thirty Red Hatters, including two vice queens, filled the tea room with red and purple laughter as we shared stories and came up with ideas for future events.  We toasted Exhalted Queen Mother Sue Ellen Cooper for starting all this fun, and offered another toast to Queen Alyce Cornyn-Selby for getting it rolling across Oregon.  Unfortunately, neither of them were able to attend today's tea.

At least twelve queens went home with a door prize, including red and purple flowers donated by Kathleen and Ed, the wonderful owners of Julia's Tea Room.
