Hat Lady to entertain Rowan AARP
“We are called upon to wear many hats each and every day,” according to Kim Sheeks, known in these parts as the Hat Lady. She will put a touch of humor on those many hats when she models her humorous collection of more than 112 hats to the Salisbury-Rowan Chapter of AARP on Thursday, March 3, at Rufty-Holmes Senior Center.
The meeting starts with a covered-dish lunch at 12:30 p.m., followed by Sheeks’ hat presentation and a brief business meeting. Seniors age 50-plus may join as she shares her stories.
Sheeks retired as a first-grade teacher from Morgan Elementary School. She is a graduate of Lenoir-Rhyne College in early childhood education. As a member of Immanuel Lutheran Church in Rockwell, she is a youth adviser, choir member, vacation Bible school director and former member of the Church Council. She is married to the Rev. Bruce Sheeks.
Among her other hats are the Rowan Rowdy Rosebud Red Hat Society, Rockwell Civitan Club, Alpha Delta Kappa Honorary Educator’s Society, board member of Hanford Dole Chapter of the American Red Cross, and director for Happy’s Farm Tutoring Facility. In addition Kim Sheeks has performed at numerous civic, educational, senior citizen and church events.
