Hats, Hats, Hats

We asked for hats and we got them!!  All kinds - vintage, decorated, and originals.   Elsie Hall's challenge was a great success - and created a challenge in itself in determining  the winners.  However, with the help of her team of judges the winners were selected.  They were:

Vintage Hats
Winner - Joan Lindsay with an honourable mention to Jean Kyle

Decorated Hats
Winner - Linda Greer with an honourable mention to Vera Brown.

Original Hats
Winner - Jane Stewart with an honourable mention to Frances Emery and to Lenore Puffer.    Plus Elsie gave special mention to one of her judges Bonnie Payne for her paper mache hat.

Victorian Tea - October 17th

Our Victorian Tea celebrating our 25 years as a Guild was a huge success.  It was standing room only - every one was there.   We all looked amazing in our hats and in some cases period costumes. 

The food was great, the entertainment was fun, (Lady Cordellion even had mayor Rick McGee bowing!!), and the company fantastic.  What a perfect way to start the next 25 years!!!

It Takes A Village....

Sunday afternoon and early Monday  morning a "village" of dedicated Guild members came to the church to help  prepare food and decorate for our 25th Anniversary Victorian Tea.  Many hours were spent off site planning, baking, buying supplies,  and preparing decorations for our big day.   It was hectic but we sure had fun!!!  Eleanor Plewes and I would like to extend a huge thank you to all of you - what a great team!!
