Southern Riverina news - - NEWS -

The Fin­ley Red Hat Ladies group cel­e­brated its ninth birth­day on Thurs­day with a lunch at the Fin­ley Coun­try Club.

The group is de­signed specif­i­cally to pro­vide a so­cial out­let for women who meet once a month — wear­ing their red hats.

The lo­cal group’s queen (pres­i­dent) Judi An­der­son said it was a great achieve­ment to reach nine years.

‘‘It’s all about hav­ing fun and that’s why we just keep­ing go­ing; we’re age­ing dis­grace­fully,’’ she said with a laugh.

‘‘We’re about hav­ing a good time and catch­ing up with like minded peo­ple.

‘‘We en­joy gath­er­ing for a lovely lunch, this year we’ve had three or four new peo­ple join in­clud­ing a lady from Tocumwal.

‘‘She used to be a red hat lady be­fore she move to Tocumwal and then she found out we ex­isted and couldn’t wait to join.

‘‘Peo­ple do look at us funny or call us the ‘mad hat­ters’,’’ she said.
