Women wearing fancy red hats.Do you know any games to be played sitting around a table for a group of 30 senior ladies, Red Hats. Maybe something such as memory games, cards, etc.

Dominoes is a great game to play. I use to sit around for hours with my grandma and her friends playing this game. Another game I enjoyed playing with them was Yatzee. This is an excellent game and you can play with a partner. My grandma loved dice games and we use to play 10.000.

According to the write ups I read about the group meetings where I live, they go out for meals, sometimes they take a day trip to another town to meet with groups there, or attend a play or for sight seeing. They do a whole variety of things.


It would be a good idea to visit with the members to see what they would be interested in doing. You could also tour museums, etc. There isn't anything that these groups do that doesn't cost money.

Hi, Our Red Hat group does lots of different things, and really, anything that you can think of that the group would like is good. We have had wine and cheese parties at a group member's house, everyone chipped in for the food with some cash. We like to go for lunch at various restaurants; ones that are a little bit special. We have pot luck suppers quite a bit, often in the local Legion lounge, and then have some sort of entertainment. We have had quizzes about the Olympics. At the March party, we all wrote limericks and we had a lot of Irish jokes read.


Jewelery displays and sales (one member's daughter made homemade jewelery). We've gone bowling, gone to fundraisers like lunches for Breast Cancer together. This month we are going to a Hawaiian supper together that is put on by one of our local churches. In the summer, one of the ladies invites the group to overnight at her lake cabin. We have weiner roasts. We invite a Red Hat group from a neighbouring town to come up for an event, and sometimes we go to theirs.

Some groups are quite ambitious with regard to trips; if you had gamblers, you could go to a local casino; any kind of show -- music, play, etc. You could tour a museum or art gallery, take in an art opening, go for tea at a tea house and then shop at some specialty store (like Ten Thousand Villages or something). We have gone bowling. We've attended a wine tasting at a local liquor store, and then gone for coffee at the Dairy Queen! Ha ha. We've had a tour of the greenhouses and nurseries in spring, and then gone for tea at a tea house. One group took a tour of a Military Base! We've taken trips on a local houseboat on the river.


You could go for a craft class at a craft store and then for tea. One of our members almost always brings jokes off the internet to share. People bring trip photos sometimes. If there is something going on in the community, we often go as a group of Red Hatters rather than just go with one friend.

Hi there, I am an Aussie red Hatter and we meet twice a month and as we have a few in our chapter we arrange for the ladies who are having a birthday in each particular month to put on something different. I have just come back from a pacific island cruise with my children and as my birthday was January I decided to carry the island theme through with my lunch.

I arranged to have it at a lovely hotel near home and I decorated the tables with frangipani flowers and leaves, chocolates and macadamia nuts, with an island theme name tag for each of the ladies. Dressing up with flowers in our hair and very colourful dresses. It was a fun day and I know many more to come.

I am trying to find the connection between the Red Hat Society and the poem "Warning". It's really important. I need to find a few connections. Thanks :)

I Googled this answer: 'Warning', Britain's most popular post-war poem, according to poll conducted by the BBC in 1996. The second line of this poem inspired the formation of America's Red Hat Society, the largest women's social group in the world (which has over 70,000 members and almost 24,000 chapters in the US and 25 other countries) and encourages fun, friendship, freedom and fulfillment.

It explains so much doesn't it?. It's for all of us who had a big shock the first time we heard mother's ( and g.mother's) maxims coming from our own mouths. Yeh, let's shock our kids, embarrass them occasionally. Let's grow old disgracefully - Freedom, here we come!

The connection is that our Queen Mother Sue bought a red hat for a friend at a flea market and gave her the hat and a copy of the poem to cheer her up. She continued doing so and before long she had a whole group of friends who would wear purple and their red hats. Now the organisation is worldwide. Any female over the age of 21 can become a member but anyone under 50 must wear lilac and a pink hat until she becomes of age.

Bras can be used to make unique sometimes flamboyant hats. The Red Hat Society is a women's play group that began in 1998 and is now an international women's social organization. Members over 50 wear red hats (often large and elaborately decorated) to group events. This is a page about making a Red Hat Society bra hat.

I have started a "red hat society" group at my mother's nursing home. Can anyone help me with ideas for entertainment to bring in for the monthly meetings or any type of things to do at the meetings? The ladies are 85-95 years old.
