American Girl Program: Featuring Maryellen Larkin

Saturday, July 27, 2019

Maryellen Larkin lives with her family in Daytona Beach, Florida, in the 1950s—the era of poodle skirts, sock hops, and exciting new steps in space travel. She is an enthusiastic, imaginative girl who longs to stand out among her siblings and relatives, but often feels lost in the shuffle of her big, busy family. Her favorite TV shows are Davy Crockett and The Lone Ranger, and she dreams up episodes where she gets to be the hero. Maryellen finds fun ways to help others, and even uses her birthday celebration for a special cause—which ultimately puts her in the spotlight and makes her stand out from the crowd!

We will be giving away a doll to one of the girls who attends. There will be 3 sittings: 10am, 11:30am, and 1pm. Space is limited (20 girls per sitting) and reservations are required. Donations welcome. Ages 5-12 are welcome; all children must be accompanied by an adult. Call for reservations at 757.934.0822 or email, beginning 14 days before the event. If you are unable to attend the program (once you have a reservation), please call us. We always have a waiting list and we hate for a child to miss this opportunity!
