Hats have always been a classy way of expressing style for men and women — especially for black women.

Over the past few decades, Norma Ferguson Hill has had a special love for hats.

She has a collection of hats of all colors and sizes and for all seasons.

So, it was only natural that she incorporated her love for hats into her 55th birthday celebration on Aug. 25.

The event was held at the Food is Good (FIG) Southern Bistro, where Caesar Thomas is the chef and owner.

Along with 20 friends, Hill celebrated in style with the theme “Women Empowering Women” as she embraced the love and fellowship of the ladies.

She and her friends did a “show and tell,” sharing tools of successful living such as knowledge, wisdom, spirituality, beauty and wealth.

Hill was honored at the birthday celebration for her ministry and service to the community, as well as her contributions to their personal lives.

She demonstrated her own tips for healthy living, and each woman had the opportunity to share about their business and/or ministry and how they were helping others.

Hill said she wanted to recognize and support the specific women who worked with various types of businesses in the community — Pastor Dusty Tipp in travel and health, Anne Person in health and “Advocare” and Tiffany Wood at The Omega Salon.

Hats, gloves, clutches, handkerchiefs and scarves with which each woman could adorn herself were provided by Hill.

The ladies, with much elegance and grace, enjoyed an adult “fashion show” as a finale to the occasion, exchanging laughs as they helped match styles.

She plans to have similar events to help others in the community.
