Mary Drumwright, queen of the first Red Hat Society in Maryville will be moving to Hawaii on November 29. A farewell luncheon was held at the Lakeside Tavern on Wednesday, Nov. 8. It was a fun day, but also a sad day for the Scarlet Ravens, they were having to tell their queen good-bye. Queen Mary started the first society in Maryville in June of 2002 with four members. The chapter grew very fast, so Mary helped to start up several new chapters. There are now 14 chapters in Maryville. The Scarlet Ravens will miss her, but wish her well on her move to Hawaii.
