Regal Red Belles of Bakersfield
Chapter ID 70636
Well, our planning meeting took place last Saturday and do we have some great things planned for 2014. Up first will be our annual Spa Day at Diva Ginny's, hosted by Prissy in Pink. A date hasn't been set yet, but it will be in February. Manicures and Pedicures will be available. I will post details when available.
On another note, The Secret Word contest is at an end. I began the contest as a way to increase readership of the web site. I felt that with the little participation in the contest, I must not be successful in drawing an audience to the site. Much to my surprise at the meeting, most of the chapterettes did visit often, just choosing not to participate in the contest. I must admit that was welcome news, as I was considering not continuing with the site. Speaking of the web site, I would like all to know we will shortly be changing to a new site as this one has no technical support. The new site is more interactive as well as being more secure. It will be necessary to register first and then log in when visiting. I want everyone to know, that although you must log in on certain pages (and it might be considered a nuisance), it will actually be more secure that way. Don't forget, those that haven't sent/brought me your info will not be included in the pictures on the new site. Hopefully, if anything makes you uncomfortable about the site, you will let me know. I will try to have everything ready by February. See you soon.
JJ, Duchess of the Dale, Empress of the Electronic Quill, Your Site Administrator.

|Welcome to the Regal Red Belles of Bakersfield, CA  |
My Dearest Ladies,
As we count the final hours of 2013 and it becomes a memory, we all reflect on the year’s events. Some were memorable moments in each of our own personal lives which have changed our lives forever, some sad, yet some that left us bursting with happiness and pride. Our memories will live on forever. We have experienced growth in our Chapter with the addition of four new members----Betty Crowley(Countess Crowley),Judy Blackledge(Lady Hightower),Cori Armstrong (Countess by the Sea) and soon Kay Reinhard(Duchess of Wesley)whom we warmly welcome-- and-- there is promise of more to come. This is an exciting time for us. Our Herstorian, Lady Susan of Stallings Manor, with tremendous help from our Duchess of the Dale (our Site Administrator), Duchess Kay of Wesley, and Countess Catherine of Chester have worked diligently to bring our Historian books up to date. This group is Red Hat Society spirit in action. They have literally spent hours working together on this project. Sorting and identifying all of the pictures was a real challenge. Kudos, and our sincerest thanks to each one of you for all of your time and effort. Soon we will all have the opportunity to view their handiwork.
I would like to THANK each of our Chapter members who quietly perform their duties throughout the year to keep things running smoothly--Vice Queen-Ginny Heilbron (Diva Ginny), Site Administrator-Jeannie Johnson (Duchess of the Dale), Keeper of the Coin-Madeline Martinez (Mystic Madeline), Herstorian-Susan Stallings (Lady Susan of Stallings Manor), our Ambassador of Cheer-Catherine Stallings (Countess Catherine of Chester),"Shutter Bugs" (Duchess of the Dale)-Jeannie Johnson, (Princess Mindy Kat)-Mindy White and (Lady Susan of Stallings Manor)-Susan Stallings. You are ALL SO appreciated. You are at the heart our Chapter. Not to be forgotten are all of our faithful members who support all of our events and make our chapter a group of close knit, and caring friends, enthusiasm personified.
We are all looking forward to the birth of the New Year. What lies ahead for each of us? Only the "Man in charge" can answer that. We know we will all accept and move forward with our lives facing whatever challenges are put before us. I am So thankful for the gift of friendship with each of you. At this joyous time of year keep friends and family close at hand. Wishing you 365 chances to love, laugh, and live your best year yet.
Warmest Hugs and Blessings, Queen Shirley
