Semmes Heritage Day is Saturday, April 18, 10 a.m.-2 p.m., and one of the most fun events, for both participants and visitors, will be the Hat Contest. Carolyn Owens is chair of this event, and she said that categories include "Best Vintage Hat," "Funniest Hat," "Prettiest Spring Hat" and "Best Male Hat."
So, put on your "Thinking Cap," choose a category and get creative. Prizes will be awarded for each category based on votes of the judges.
Semmes Heritage Day, which is free and open to the public, is sponsored by Alumni & Friends of Semmes School Inc., the City of Semmes and Mobile County Commissioner Connie Hudson.
It will be held at Semmes Heritage Park, 3871 Wulff Road in Semmes. Call Jeanette Byrd at 649-1647 for more information.
