Members of The Red Hat Queen’s Council met for lunch at Daddy’s on South Padre Island on Monday Jan. 8. They were reminded of the upcoming Festival of Tables planned For Jan. 29 at Trophy Gardens in San Juan. There were a few tickets still available. Any Red Hat lady wanting a ticket, ($18), should call Jan Bergman at (956) 532-1223 or (956) 781-8485.

The Dazzling Dolphin Beach Party will be held at the Schlitterbahn, on South Padre Island on Tuesday, February 27. This year’s theme is black and white attire. Those wanting tickets should make checks payable to Schlitterbahn and mail them to Debbie Storlie. Debbie may be contacted at debbiestorlie@gmail.com or call (920) 216-2813. Doors open at 11 a.m. and there will be a Mexican buffet served at noon. Tickets are $15.

Following the luncheon, ladies were invited to go to Isla Blanca Park to the Sea Life Lab where cold-shocked turtles were being released back into the gulf at 1 p.m. Kathy Boling of Dazzling Dolphins explained that when temperatures drop rapidly in the Laguna Madre the turtles tend to get cold-shock from the lower temperatures. If not rescued, they could die. Volunteers in boats go out in the water and look for these turtles and take them to the Sea Turtle, Inc. on SPI where they are gradually warmed up. When temperatures warm up again, they are released into the wild from Isla Blanca Park, being placed in the warmer more stable Gulf of Mexico waters.

To find out more about how these rescues work, visit Sea Turtle Inc. on South Padre Island.

When suggestions of places to visit were requested, the newly renovated Texas State Aquarium in Corpus Christi was recommended. Several groups showed interest in visiting the aquarium.

The Feb. 10 Red Hat Queen’s meeting will begin with a visit to Valley Nature Center, 301 S. Border Ave., Weslaco at 10 a.m. The cost is $5. Afterwards lunch will be held at 11:30 a.m. at Lin’s Chinese Buffet, 1402 W. Expressway 83, Weslaco at 11 a.m. Queens, please note this is also a change of location from what was given at the meeting.
