The Finley Fillies Red Hat Ladies met earlier this month to celebrate the 16th anniversary of Red Hat Society Australia.
The local ladies celebrated the occasion with an afternoon of high tea at the Poppies Espresso Cafe in Finley.
The Red Hat Society is a group for women that allows them to make new friends and enrich lives through the power of fun and friendship.
‘The Queen’ of the Finley Fillies, Judi Anderson, said the local group had been running for eight years and gives women a great opportunity to get together and enjoy themselves.
‘‘We have a motto which is, ‘Frankly, we don’t give a damn,’’’ she said with a laugh.
‘‘We chat and laugh and don’t care if people look over at us wearing our purple clothes and red hats.’’
The Finley Fillies get together once a month to do various activities such as going to the movies, shopping or high tea.
The Red Hat Society was founded in the USA in 1998.
