Re: Feeling down
That must be a great loss. But when I read that missing meetings is a reason for dismissal from the Red Hats....wha??? It sounds like high school. If anything, the fact that the Red Hats (I think) is for older women, this just doesn't make sense.
I'd vote for joining something else, and I hope you look for and find something else.
Just a thought: would the rules still hold if the woman in charge were to become ill and have to miss a lot of meetings?
Hugs to you,
