June 4th Meeting

Our meeting for Thursday, June 4th, is lunch and tour at the Spring Hill Historic Home at 1401 Springhill Lane NE in Massillon. Since this is in close proximity, we will leave you to make your own carpool/travel arrangements. Lunch will be Chicken Salad served on Lettuce, Cherry Congealed Salad, Fresh Fruit, Mini Muffins, and Ice Cream Balls with Chocolate Sauce. Lunch will be served at 11:30. The cost of lunch will be $14 including tax and tip. We would like to collect lunch money as you arrive so we will not be concerned with that after we eat. A tour of the home will follow lunch at 1:00 or 1:15. Cost of the tour is $5...seniors $4. The home is not air conditioned but the dining area in the parlor has fans and good circulation. We recommend that you dress in comfortable red hat attire for the weather and wear comfortable shoes. But do not forget your Red Hat!

Parking is on the hill pass the house. Passengers can be dropped at the front of the house to avoid walking down to the house. Enter the house through the front door where there will be someone to greet you. On the map that was handed out at the last meeting, it does not show Springhill Lane NE on the map which is the street south of Springhill Ave NE (past the Lake Ave intersection). Turn left onto Springhill Lane NE not Springhill Ave. Attached is a better detailed map.

Definition of OLD

Remember the Fifties

I think we are all old enough to remember these prices:
If any of you have doubt about what we kids paid for a coke and a sandwich at Woolworths ( How many don't know what Woolworth's was?) in the 1950's, here's proof of the prices ........

Upcoming Meeting May 7

Email from Paula:

Hi Red Hatters,

Debbie and I want to remind you of our May 7th Ramblin' Red Roses Anniversary Luncheon at 11:30 AM at my home. Each of you is asked to bring a salad to share, your $5.00 annual dues and a White Elephant gift for the exchange. The White Elephant gift is to be wrapped in some kind of wrapping paper (or comics; it doesn't matter) and then the gift is to be placed in a brown paper bag and stapled shut so no one will see which gift you brought. If you have any questions about the White Elephant gift, call me or Debbie.

Please RSVP by Monday, May 4th. (Sandy L. and Pat M., I know you will not be there. We will miss you.)

Don't forget to wear your Red Hat attire, including your hat!


Movie to See

Movie rec commended by Red Hat Society:
We would like to draw your attention to the new movie from Story Island Entertainment, "Is Anybody There," a story both humorous and thought-provoking. This quiet drama centers on Edward, a young boy growing up in a retirement home run by his parents. Edward meets the cantankerous Clarence, a former magician, who lives with regrets and is trying to make amends for his mistakes. This unlikely pair journey into the pain and joy that come with remembrance and forgetting, and Edward learns how to reach out to those around him. Though the entire cast performs well, the story really belongs to veteran actor Michael Caine, who delivers a performance that is both moving and versatile. Bring a box of Kleenex, but be prepared to leave with a smile on your face!

Happy Hatting,
Debra 'Ladybug' Granich
