The Red Hat Society is based on the poem "Warning" by Jenny Joseph. The founder of the Red Hat Society is Sue Ellen Cooper, who gave a red hat to a friend, Linda Murphy(in 1997)for Linda's 50th birthday. Others expressed an interest in receiving the same gift as they reached their 50th birthdays. So on April 25, 1998, Sue Ellen and four of her friends dressed in purple and red hats and went out to lunch and dubbed themselves the Red Hat Society. They decided to continue to get together wearing the same colors for the sole purpose of having some fun. Linda told a friend in Florida, Nancy Manning, about the little group and she started a similar one in her small town of Homosassa. In 2000,an article was featured in the July issue of "Romantic Homes" magazine entitled "Growing Old Playfully." From there on it is history!

When I am an old woman I shall wear purple
But maybe I ought to practice a little now?
