The fabulous local ladies of the Burns Lake ‘Red Haute Swans Society’ a chapter of the Red Hat Society, dressed in their best last week for a social gathering and luncheon at Homeside Antiques.

According to Janet Macadam, the sisterhood society is an informal group of local women that gather together in a social setting.

Worldwide, the society has over 80,000 members in 20,000 chapters in 30 countries. The society supports and encourages women to pursue fun, friendship, freedom, fulfillment of lifelong dreams.

Society members wear red hats and purple outfits if they are 50 or older and pink hats and lavender outfits if they are under 50.

Macadam, who goes by the name of ‘Princess Paparazzi’ at society events said every lady chooses a name for herself.

“I chose Princess Paparazzi because I always carry my camera with me,” she laughed.

Macadam said the Burns Lake chapter started about four years ago and is always looking for members to join in on the fun.

“We get together for Christmas parties and special gatherings throughout the year, everyone takes turns at hosting an event,” she said.

Macadam said the ladies always have a lot of fun. “There is no rules, we do whatever we want,” she said.

The group has also combined forces with society members from Prince George and Smithers.

“We went to a big Red Hat Society dinner in Prince George.”

Macadam added, “It is a great opportunity for us to dress up in bling, have fun and be fancy, like queens.”
