2006

Hats Off to Mom!
On Mother’s Day it was Hats Off to Mom Day at First Reformed Church.

All the women of the church were encouraged to wear their most beautiful, outlandish, silly, serious hat to worship.  After worship the men of the church were called upon to vote for the best and the silliest hat. Prizes were awarded, but all of the ladies were winners!

On Father’s Day, the guys were expected to wear their ugliest, most outrageous tie to service -- and the women were called upon to vote. Public was invited. ###
