Red Hatters of Gresham outdid themselves in planning this fantasic
event open to all chapters. Eighty red hatters enjoyed the view
and old world charm of this
beautiful historic restaurant and bed & breakfast.
Though the restaurant is usually closed on Tuesdays, the owners, Geoff
Thompson & Angelo Simione, both donning red caps, opened
their doors just for us. The food was fabulous, especially their
signature sweet onion soup.
many surprises, a Channel 8 camera crew was on hand to tape the
frivolity and camaraderie of the ladies of the Red Hat Society.
We even did a promo for a weather segment to be shown on Friday some time
between 5 AM and 7 AM.
surprise, which I personally loved, was as we entered the Inn, we
reached into a basket and pulled out a table number where we would be
seated. How wonderful to sit with people we've never met or haven't
seen in a long time instead of sitting in the comfort zone of gals we
usually sit with. Great idea, Feisty's.
Red Hatters paid a lot of attention to detail including keeping us
busy with fun questionnaires, door prizes, clever quotes attached to mini
red hats at each place setting, and at the end we sang to familiar tunes
with new red hat verses.
Thank you, Feisty
Red Hatters. We had a fabulous time.
