They say the color red is actually a stimulant. If you attended our Top That Red Hat luncheon on Febraury 2, then you can attest to the level of energy that was in the Palmetto Club in Daytona Beach. Guests traveled from Volusia, Flagler, Brevard, Seminole and Lake Counties to attend the fun filled red hat competition event. The emcee, Daytona Beach Police Chief, Michael Chitwood kept the guests entertained.
