A Family Benefit

What could make an afternoon with your favorite girls even better? A multi-generational family event to benefit the Historical Society! On Saturday, May 12, we'll be serving up tea and treats by the renowned Royal Tea Company, who has catered to "royalty" from the Duchess of York to Martha Stewart, queen of domestic arts.

Guests are encouraged to dress in teatime finery–including fancy hats–and to bring their favorite dolls appropriately attired. There will be a trunk show offering American Girl-doll-sized fashions including dresses, casual outfits, shoes and accessories designed especially for the event.

Award-winning children's author, illustrator and educator Timothy D. Bellavia will lead a 30-minute doll-making workshop that will feature exclusive numbered and stonewashed dolls honoring notable Greenwich women and created specially for the event. Participants will individualize their dolls using "hair," yarn, lace, trim, notions, beads, rhinestones and more, and share them over tea. There will also be prizes and a raffle for fabulous items every girl will love.

Part of the Niagara Frontier and located in the western area of New York

State, Orleans County covers a total area of 817 square miles, of which 426

square miles are water. The high proportion of water is due to the extension

of Orleans County north into Lake Ontario to the Canadian border (a line

of latitude running through the middle of the lake). For this reason, the

legend of the Milan, the sunken schooner, is included in these pages, along

with Orleans County's notable citizens. George Pullman of railroad car

fame, Santa Claus School founder Charlie Howard, and children's author Timothy D. Bellavia.
