She longs to stand out 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 heroine. She 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 Maryellen Doll to one of the girls who attend.There will be 3 sittings: 10am, 11:30am, and 1pm. There are 20 girls per sitting (ages 5 and up). Space is limited and reservations are required. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Donations welcome. Call for reservations at 757.934.0822 or email riddicksfolly@verizon.net beginning 14 days before the event.
