Heart of Doll Country News


The March 6th meeting of The Heart of Doll Country was held at the United Methodist Church in Garrettsville.  Present were Pat Dutchman, Kerin Denna, Carolyn Englert, and Jean Lawrence.  After the Minutes of the previous meeting were read, and the Treasurer’s report given, a discussion on the issue of continuing to meet at the church was held.  Due to a decline in membership, it was decided to move our meetings to member’s homes.  The next topic was our annual Luncheon, to be held in July this year, with a theme of A Doll’s Christmas in July.  A speaker, Sandy Pelphrey has been arranged, and we talked about table decorations, competitions, and ticket sales.  A guest was introduced, Helen Danku, who had a hand made Raggedy Ann doll that was made for her children years ago.  She wanted advice on how to clean and care for the doll.  The members responded with some good conservation techniques.  Pat served light refreshments, and Helen won the door prize, a lovely plant.  The next meeting will be April 3rd, at the home of Carolyn Englert.  If you are interested in visiting or joining the club, feel free to contact Carolyn at pindolllady@gmail.com or 330-527-4888.
