|New intergenerational American Girl© Tea Party is March 19|
Girls ages four to 12 are invited to bring their mother or grandmother and their doll to participate in an American Girl© Tea Party being offered by the Johnson County Park and Recreation District on March 19.
This new special event is expected to fill quickly. Participants will enjoy a variety of treat including garden party tea sandwiches, sweet breads, tea cakes and cookies, pink lemonade and, of course, tea. Professional storyteller Melva Hargett will regale attendees with stories about American Girl© character Felicity and her friend Elizabeth, two Colonial girls who grew up during the American Revolution. Learn how they got ready for their tea parties and there will be a surprise for participants to take home.

The American Girl© Collection involves engaging stories about girls living at important times in the past which bring history to life for grade-school girls. Participants explore what life was like during the times of these characters.
This program will take place beginning at 3 p.m. on Wednesday, March 19, at the Roeland Park Community Center, 4850 Rosewood, Roeland Park. The cost for one 75-minute session is $12 per person for both children and adults.
