Garrettsville – The August meeting of The Heart of Doll Country was held at Garrettsville’s United Methodist Church on August 2nd. After the minutes and Treasurer’s report were read, members discussed some upcoming proposed trips. A visit to the Museum in Erie, Pennsylvania to see a display of life-sized needle sculpted dolls, the Strongsville Doll and Bear Show, and Kent State Museum of Fashion were all proposed. We will check to see what the current display is at Kent, and decide if we will be going. A lively discussion about next year’s luncheon was held, and a Christmas in July theme was decided upon. We also talked about where we will hold the Christmas party this year, since we are not going to be meeting over the winter months. At Share and Tell, member Barbara Dupay showed a carved wooden doll she had purchased from The Toy Shoppe, as well as passing out some catalogs from there. Carolyn Englert had her Bleuette-type doll that had belonged to her mother. Pat Dutchman provided refreshments as well as a program on Travel Dolls. Jean Lawrence won the door prize, a lovely tote bag. Sue Lehota held an extra drawing, which Carolyn won, a beautiful Japanese American Girl small doll. The Heart of Doll Country meets on the first Tuesday of the month, at the Methodist Church, anyone who loves or makes dolls is welcome. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
