West Seattle Red Hatters

Have you heard about the lively group of women in West Seattle called the Red Hatters? We’re a chapter of the International Red Hat Society, a group of women whose sole purpose is to have fun. We meet once per month for Happy Hour at various restaurants, the SSCC Alhadeff Grill or Café for a gourmet meal prepared by students in the Culinary Arts program, plays at West 5, or Tea at a Tea Room. Of course we all wear our cute Red Hats on these occasions. Membership is open to women of all ages. There is one annual meeting each August to plan the annual calendar. This year it's late in August. Annual dues for participation in local events are $5 per year, for Regional and National events, $25 annually. If you’d like to join us please contact Suzanne Duffy-Kane (Queen Mum) (206) 935-3709 or
