Dust Off Your Prettiest Hat and Join us for this Delightful Afternoon.

Karen Jessee, professional speaker and scholar, will talk about the history of women’s accessories, including some that guests may never have heard of. Learn more about some of the oddities that you may have seen in museums, antique stores, and even in your own family, and do it as a game. Guests are encouraged to wear hats and gloves to add to the festivities.


Jessee, who won the NBC National Teacher Award, has also won state and national writing awards and has traveled widely, bringing back images that appear in her presentations.
