The Stone Mountain Marriott Convention Center was the location of the 2009 Jubilee. Red Hatters were Puttin’ On the Glitz for a fabulous weekend of glamour and gaiety, Red Hat style. When the lights and music came on at the opening ceremonies we knew this was going to be an amazing Jubilee and when followed by a chic afternoon tea, we were sure that it would be a most elegant weekend as well.
Friday night kicked off the excitement with a Las Vegas Style Dinner, Casino, Entertainment and Dancing where the ladies came dressed-to-the-nines in the style of whatever era suited their fancy. On Saturday morning it was rise and shine for the Pajama Breakfast featuring a hilarious fashion show. All of the wonderful attractions of Stone Mountain Park were available to enjoy.
Saturday night’s spectacular Grand Banquet was all we expected and more! There was so much glitz in that ballroom that it was almost blinding to the average person, however we Red Hatters had been in training for a year to survive the intense brilliance. We danced the evening away to the great live sound of Flashback and were thankfully revived by the orange juice at Sunday morning’s Farewell Breakfast where all the talk was about how we could shop for even more bling.
Our thanks and applause to Planning Chairs: Claudia Tatum, Pat Guy, and Carolyn McGee (fondly known as "the Tri Chairs")
