Annual Dolly and Me teas

The Anoka County Historical Society will host its annual Dolly and Me Tea Saturdays, May 12 and 17 at 10 a.m. and again at 2 p.m. at the Anoka County History Center and Library in Anoka.

Mothers, aunts and grandmothers are invited to come and share childhood memories with the significant little girl in their life, and bring their favorite doll.

The cost is $10 for adults and $7 for girls and members of the historical society.

“In conjunction with our new exhibit ‘Clothing the County — Fashion for Every Occasion,’ girls will go on a scavenger hunt exploring the history of fashion,” said Eileen Koehn, historical society volunteer coordinator.

“The exhibit of clothing from the permanent collections of the historical society will feature more than two dozen dresses, gowns, uniforms and more.”

“Following the tour the little girls will create a lavish spring hat adorned with feathers, flowers and ribbons.
