Hat-decorating social to be held

SARANAC LAKE — Inspired by the exhibition of Ursula Trudeau’s magnificent hats, Historic Saranac Lake recently announced plans to host a hat-decorating social on Thursday in the John Black Room at the Saranac Laboratory Museum, 89 Church Street.

The public is invited to bring a hat for refreshing. There will be two sessions, from 1 to 3 or 5 to 7 p.m. during the last of the summer Artwalks. Ursula Trudeau will be a special guest during a portion of the event.

“It’s a fun way to celebrate the exhibit,” said Historic Saranac Lake Executive Director Amy Catania. “During this last Artwalk, we hope to flood the streets of Saranac Lake with beautiful hats.”

She credited a museum visitor, Kathy Lobo, for helping to plan the project.

Some decorating materials will be provided. Attendees are urged to bring some materials of their own to use and share if possible. Suggested materials include a hat to refresh, a headband, ribbons, yarn, paper flowers, fabric, scarves, belt, belt buckles, necklaces, buttons, pom poms, tassles, and paper. A $5 donation is requested to help defray exhibit and workshop costs.

Thursday is also the last day to enter the A Life in Hats Raffle for a chance to win one of Ursula Trudeau’s hats, a signed and matted exhibit poster or a gift certificate. 

The John Black Room exhibit Ursula: A Life in Hats will be on display through Columbus Day.
