The Blueberry Muffins are a Chapter of the Red Hat Society.
The Red Hat Society is a social organization where there is fun after fifty (and before) for women of all walks of life
"The Red Hat Society began as a result of a few women deciding to greet middle age with verve, humor and elan.
We believe silliness is the comedy relief of life, and since we are all in it together, we might as well join red-gloved hands and go for the gusto together.
Underneath the frivolity, we share a bond of affection, forged by common life experiences and a genuine enthusiasm for wherever life takes us next."
What is the Red Hat Society and how did it get started?
The Red Hat Society is often referred to fondly as a "dis-organization," though we have been forced to impart a degree of order to our operations
It was inadvertently begun by Sue Ellen Cooper of Fullerton, California when she and a few friends took inspiration from a popular poem entitled "Warning" by Jenny Joseph, which begins
When I am an old woman..."
Since the poem mentions wearing a red hat and purple attire, she and her friends formed a group that met on a regular basis for tea in their red hats and purple dresses in public, of course.
The spirit of the Red Hat Society forbids rules, per se. There is, however, ONE inflexible guideline that we must insist upon: You must be a woman of 50 or over (or you may be a Pink Hatter under 50), and you must attend functions in full regalia, (red hat, purple outfit for women 50 and over, or pink hat and lavender outfit for women under 50).
Blueberry Muffins is a private members club.
