Saranac Lake's queen of hats

Some of Ursula Trudeau's favorite hats are on display at the historic Saranac Laboratory in Saranac Lake. Ursula Trudeau is known in the community for her collection of colorful hats, many of which are works of art in their own right. She's the widow of Dr. Frank Trudeau, whose grandfather founded the laboratory for the study of tuberculosis in 1894.

The exhibit, organized by the Historic Saranac Lake staff, includes hats from China, Morocco, Russia, and designers from Montreal and New York City. You'll find straw hats, top hats, cowboy hats, garden party hats and even a native American headdress. Todd Moe stopped by as the hats, and hat boxes, were being arranged for the summer show.

You're invited to tonight's opening reception for the "A Life in Hats" exhibit from 5:00-7:00 in the John Black Room of the Saranac Laboratory.  Go to full article

Creative Healing Connections has provided retreats in the Adirondacks for women for the past 14 years and proceeds from Friday's event will fund scholarships.
