Preventing cruelty to animals has been their mission since 1874.  They brought it to new heights with their "No Kill" policy a few years ago.  The Hat Ladies have been proud to support their efforts through volunteerism at their annual Meetings and involvement with and attendance at their premier fundraiser, The Firefighter Calendar...with the Top Hat serving as Judge for the first one.  (Now voting is done on line)

Thanks to Carolyn, Executive Producer of Calendar, we wound up with a ringside seat...

...actually sitting with her parents!  We would also wind up in the Post and Courier pictures of the Event
