"This is How We Do It"
Each member receives a book of the format "This is how we do it". This is information about the chapter, hostess schedule, "saying", songs, poems, tea etiquette, recipes, chapter roll call, royal titles, chapter history, RHS history, RHS vows and pledges and pictures. Each member has a booklet with her royal title and picture on the home page.
Makeover Queen (IT) worked diligently to get this off the ground. She designed the format, decorated with Red Hat clipart and other items, red and purple ink on every page, and sorted all copies. This is each member's personal "history" book for keeping chapter important information. Information is updated as needed.
New Member Induction
New member(s) has an induction ceremony to include, stating a pledge, prayer and receiving sample Sassy Red Hat Chicks items: logo, booklet with history, something "red hat", temporary name tag (until the official name tag has been purchased), hostess calendar, phone tree, and picture of the ceremony and then the "right hand of fellowship". New members are by special invitation referred by a current member. The current member will be the "mentor" for the new member.
