Who are we? We are an Official Chapter of The Red Hat Society.
What Are We About? Having Fun!
The Red Hat Society is a "dis-organization." It begun when The Exalted Queen Mother Sue Ellen Cooper of Fullerton, California gave her friend a Red Hat and The poem, " The Warning," by Jenny Joseph, which states "When I am an old woman I shall wear purple with a red hat....." And the rest is history. 


My name is Queen Margaret Forney. I am the founding Queen of "The Classy Ebony Belles of Lenoir, North Carolina. We became an official
chapter of The Red Hat Society in 2004.
We believe that laughter is food for the soul.Fun is the vehicle, so jump on for an exciting ride.
Our Motto: Red Hatters Matter

When I look in the mirror
I see the essence of royalty
I see the daughter of the ultimate father
I see the QUEEN in me.
In all of my dealings, I take time to see
Who I am and who I am creates to be
I am not arrogant, but please understand
I am not just a common woman
And if any dealings between us are to be
You don't have to bow or rise, but you must recognize
The QUEEN that lives in me
My hair is my glory; pinned up or let down
Intelligence and dignity are the jewels in my crown
Grace is my fragrance; beauty is my
Sweetness is my taste; rhythm is my flow
Power is in my hands; determination is my stride.
Confidence is in my eyes; my stand is with pride
I am to be cherished, appreciated, but never owned
Although with the right king, I'd gladly share a throne
I am sister of Cleopatra, Esther and Nefertiti
They are the heritage of the QUEEN in me.
I may be your neighbor, your friend or your sister
I may call you Honey, Miss, Mam, Sir, or Mister
I see your worth and ask that in your dealings with me
That you recognize the QUEEN in ME.
by Vernon D. Lloyd
