Welcome To The
June 2013 Newsletter


Thank you for attending the Belk/Walcoal  Tea  held recently for our  club. the word from the Executives is that they were very very impressed  with the HAT DIVAS!

They thought we all looked gorgeous and the photos that were taken of the event were sent to the home office which impressed them even more.  I was so proud of you at this event, you all looked stunning in your beautiful hats and clothing.

The goal that Belk's  Walcoal  lingerie department had in mind for the event was 3,750.00 guess what?! Their department from Citadel Mall  store brought in 6,222.00 which is an increase of 66% to plan and an icrease of 146 % to last year! All due to HAT DIVAS and our guests!
