Our member, Mary Anne Convis, NWHP historical clothing expert, says the skirts were floor length and every woman wore a hat. If you need assistance with a hat, she has a collection she is willing to share.  She would also be helpful is getting your "costume" together.  888-9867.  If you are not interested in coming in "costume" please be assured it is not a requirement!

Please plan to be in the hall outside the Senate Chambers at 10:45am, April 15.
