The Social Butterflies Chapter is open for new members.
Monthly chapter dues [at this time we have none]
Dues could support special purchases, transportation, picture development, decorations, games, music, dancing videos, banners, arts and crafts, scrap- booking supplies, IT supplies, community care/service activity, care and concern matters and website payment and support. At the moment we use our "Flutter Fund" to pay these expenses.
Our goal is to have all members be "Level One" members:
The Social Butterflies Chapter is open to new RHS membership. Membership is by invitation from an existing member or by requesting through our website or participation in our events as a guest.
Contact the Queen Mum @ firstname.lastname@example.org
[RH members from other chapters are voted in at our January & June Planning Meetings]
Please add "RHS Membership Request" in the subject line

January is National "Hot Tea" Month
Make plans with your Red Hat group to go out to afternoon tea, or host a lovely afternoon tea in your home. If you are in need of recipes or theme ideas, or want some help finding a tea room, be sure to check www.TheTeaHouseTimes.com. Did you know that afternoon tea is also known as low tea and not High Tea? That is right; high tea is actually a supper time [6:00 pm] tradition including tea to drink and served at a high time of day and at higher tables. Afternoon tea is served earlier [4:00 pm]on lower tables (such as coffee or tea table style).
Did you know that "The Tea House Times" is "the" publication for tea fanciers around the world and they spotlight the Red Hat Society in all their publications? Fabulous!
February is "National Wear Red Day!!"
National Wear Red Day is February 4th! Honor this day by wearing your Red hats with a bright red dress! Go red have fun! We are the RED Hat Society!

August is National Purple Month
National Wear Purple Month is August. It was started in 1782 when George Washington created the Purple Heart to commorate the brave in battle. Since purple is part of our Red Hat garb we can honor both in August by wearing LOTS of purple!!!
January National Days
Bird Day - January 5. Winter is a great time for bird watching, since there are less leaves in the trees and the birds are more visible! Get out your binoculars and see which birds you can find. Make a bird feeder to hang outside your house and treat the neighborhood birds to a good meal. Visit the National Bird Day website (http://www.nationalbirdday.org) to take a bird call quiz and learn how to make an origami bird.
House Plant Appreciation Day - January 10. Some of us like to keep and decorate large coniferous trees in our houses throughout the month of December. In January, tradition requires us to take the trees down. But now what? Well, how about a house plant? Created by Gardeners Net (http://www.gardenersnet.com) this is a holiday where you can take extra special care of the house plants you already own, or, if you don't own any, get some. If you're already a house plant lover, how about spreading the joy? Give a house plant to a friend or neighbor, or bring one to a nursing home near by. Spider plants have a creepy name, but a lot of people like them because it is easy to clip off pieces and replant them, in order to share the plant with others.
National Hat Day - January 15. You're probably still wearing a warm hat every time you go outside, to keep your ears from freezing, right? But hats don't have to be utilitarian. Find the coolest or funniest hat you own, and wear it all day. Encourage your family members and friends to do the same! If you don't have a cool or funny hat, you can make one. We all remember how to make a great hat using newspaper and tape, right?
National Day Of Service - January 20. This is a recent spin-off of Martin Luther King, Jr, Day. President Obama created the initiative to get the whole country to do something to make a difference in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr, instead of just staying home and lazing around on our day off from work or school. Join in on an organized volunteer project, plan your own, or just do something kind for a friend or neighbor.
National Pie Day - January 23. (This is not to be confused with Pi Day, on March 14.) Now, this is a sweet holiday! Make your favorite pie and share it with those you know and love. If you go to work, try to get others you work with to contribute their own pies to share! Try making an unusual pie, like Shoofly pie, Whoopie Pie, or Kool-Aid Pie!
National Puzzle Day - January 29. Puzzles can help you relax, entertain you, and maybe even raise your IQ or prevent dementia! So today, pull out a puzzle. It doesn't have to be a jigsaw puzzle. There are so many wacky and fun puzzles out there now, like 3-D puzzles, cube puzzles, etc. Check out Marbles, The Brain Store (http://www.marblesthebrainstore.com) for some super challenging options. Puzzles you do on paper, like word searches, crosswords, and fill-ins, count, too! Maybe this is the perfect day to finally learn how to do Sudoku!
I PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE FLAG,
OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, AND TO THE REPUBLIC, FOR
WHICH IT STANDS, ONE NATION UNDER GOD, INDIVISIBLE, WITH LIBERTY
AND JUSTICE FOR ALL!
