The Jubilee Council consists of two very enterprising Red Hatters: Claudia, and Carolyn, each a professional in her own right. Claudia is a retired Human Resource/Employee Relations professional, as well as a Corporate Trainer. She is FQM of the “Georgia Peachiz”, and also founded, and led the Gwinnett County Queen’s Council for 11 years. In addition to her love for the RHS, Claudia is a seasoned event coordinator with over 35 years’ experience.
Carolyn, and her husband own multiple businesses where
she has managed all of the accounting/financial aspects. Prior to that she work 25 years as a legal secretary. In addition, Carolyn is VQ of the “Georgia Peachiz”, and also has many years
experience as an event coordinator.
Dedicated to the task of producing a fun-filled weekend of elegance and enjoyment, they work in harmony to assure a successful Red Hat weekend of the highest standards. Planning begins more than two years in advance and it takes one full year to pull it all together.
First is the selection of the venue. Like every other detail, the host hotel must meet certain requirements, including a beautiful environment, necessary accommodations, and quality service in all areas. Of special concern is food; menus for each meal are carefully selected and tested.
Also tested is the entertainment. All performers--actors, as well as musicians--are auditioned by the Council before invitations are extended or contracts signed.

The Jubilee is a duly registered non-profit corporation. Registration and Vendor fees are used to cover expenses incurred during Jubilee weekend, start-up funds for the following year, and various corporate expenditures. Council members, like all volunteers, are not salaried. All who work on the various committees are reimbursed for any expenses they incur in conjunction with their assigned responsibilities.
We tip our Red Hats to our Jubilee volunteers, whose contributions are invaluable. We thank you and we salute you!
In summary, the Jubilee Council strives to make each Jubilee different, enjoyable, and memorable for our Red Hat guests. And this we do with great pleasure and appreciation.
