The third annual Regional Red Hat picnic at “Kidstown”, Shepparton was a huge success.
The perfect autumn weather brought about 50 ladies to the event. Out came the lunches and coffees amid lots of happy chatter and laughs. Some hatters traveled up from Melbourne to join in the fun.
The Easter bunny made an appearance, scattering chocolate eggs amongst the crowd. Children picnicking nearby got into the act as well, excitedly searching for eggs in the grass.
Some ladies boarded the miniature train for a ride around the park. It was lovely to catch up with old friends from other chapters and to make new friends as well. Shepparton’s Queen Divine volunteered to organise next year’s picnic, much to the delight of Bendigo’s Queen Jennifer.
The next Victorian Red Hat picnic will be in Melbourne in November.
