Red Hat Society Ladies Visit the Glessner and Clarke Houses

The Joy of Volunteering
I'm a volunteer docent (tour guide) for the Clarke and Glessner houses. One of the fun parts of the "job" is meeting people from all walks (and stages) of life, different states, and countries. Yesterday it was my pleasure to lead a group of Red Hat Society ladies through both historic homes. Both homes are challenging; they have lots of stairs, and in the case of the Glessner house, there is no elevator. In spite of the challenges, my group of ladies made it through both houses and proved one is never too old to learn new things (Chicago history in this case) and face new challenges. Bravo, ladies!

What is the Red Hat Society?
"The Red Hat Society is the largest international social organization for women, dedicated to making the world a better place for our members by actively promoting and supporting fun, friendship, freedom, fulfillment and fitness for each individual, as well as demonstrating the value and contributions of women to society at large."
