| It is always a special time when guests become welcome friends at the Lavender Patch. This page is dedicated to all the good times had here! From avid fisherman to weathered antinque car collectors we welcome you all. Join us like the Red Hat Ladies have. They have come for a Special Tea with a wonderful menu filled with fresh herbs and spices. The Miller's have had guests spend their anniversary here where Marian spread velvety red rose petals atop their satin down comforter. The lengths they will go for you are practically endless. Call today to make your reservation of living, loving, laughing and especially the unique Central Pennsylvania dishes. Notice most of these pictures are around the table!
The Red Hat Society
We are the women in the red & pink hats. We are the mothers, grandmothers, and daughters of society. Little girls grow up, but they're never too old to play dress-up and have tea parties. The Red Hat Society calls itself a "dis-organization," and we are proud of our lack of rules and by-laws. We are all helping to develop an enormous nurturing network or women over 50 (and under), by joining red-gloved hands and spreading the joy and companionship we are finding within and among the chapters. We have also discovered a "mission" of sorts: to gain higher visibility for women in our age group and to reshape the way we are viewed by today's culture. We are all familiar with groups of the past, which stridently sought to achieve their agendas. Well, we are decidedly UN-strident, but we hope to advance our agenda with good humor and laughter. If we do not join together under the banner of The Red Hat Society, but rather remain isolated, in unconnected groups, that will not happen. Therefore, we are working to build a dis-organization within which we can all connect and eventually take over the world!
