Surprise 80th birthday party for 'Red Hatter'
WAIKERIE woman Judith 'Lady
Ritis' Hooper "didn't have a clue" that
her fellow Riverland Red Hatters Down
Under members would be putting on a
party for her 80th birthday.
The group turned its normal meeting
at the Waikerie Club last Thursday into
a surprise celebration, including a home-
made card from Red Hatter Paula 'Lady CC'
"They did a lovely job of getting the table
together," Mrs Hooper said.
Chairwoman Nan 'Queen Fancy Nancy'
Mackareth said the gathering of ladies aged
over 55 was also celebrating its own birthday
in January after being established nearly
nine years ago.
Mrs Mackareth said the group, which
is one of many Red Hat Society chapters
around the world, allowed members to
socialise and support each other.
"It's just a real cross-section of different
people with different 'titles', just for fun,"
Mrs Mackereth said the Red Hatters
welcomed new members, and invited those
interested to contact her on 0428 779 739.

a few), many thanks for your

districts astounds us all still.

School are extremely proud
and thrilled to work within a
school that is embracing the
