WHO?  The Hat Ladies of Charleston, under the leadership of Top Hat, Archie Burkel

WHAT?  Ladies of all ages who love hats of all colors who formed a stylish brigade of volunteers making a difference in their lives and their community. We are not affiliated with any other hat group nor do we make or sell hats.  We wear them....

"WEAR?"  The Hat Ladies was created because:

  • Ladies do not always have confidence to be the only one wearing a hat
  • Ladies do not always feel they have occasions to wear a hat

We WEAR our hats of all colors in a spirit of camaraderie and community service.

WHY?  WEARing a hat brings people together.  It opens up communication.  When people are given something to talk about, connections are made.

In times of such divisions between people, wHAT could be better than tHAT!
