ESU Seattle Branch Members and Guests, get ready to put your "hats on" for the ESU Summer Garden Party's annual "Chapeau of the Year" competition! The Garden Party and this year's hat contest will be Saturday afternoon, July 30th.
This year, men and women will compete together in four contest categories of hats: Most Elegant, Funniest, Most Original and Traditional/Historic. You may bring more than one hat and enter more than one category; but, amongst the entrants within each category, with men and women competing together, there will be just one winner. The winners of the four categories will then compete for "Chapeau of the Year," and win the handsome perpetual trophy.
So, start making/buying/designing/ borrowing the hat or hats you want to wear for the fun-in—the—sun annual ESU Summer Hat Contest. July 30th will be here before you know it!
