Briefly…

Photo submitted to Times Observer The girls in the summertime American Girl Club met on July 12 for high tea at the Arbor Coffee House & Tea Room in Warren. Celebrating the Colonial American Girl, Felicity of 1774, the girls in the club began by making a handheld folded fan, then enjoyed a social time together with tea and scones. The girls really loved the delicious clotted cream and berry jam, dressing up and using fine china, and have learned much about the historical enjoyment of attending a tea.
