What better time than Springfest to celebrate the grace and beauty of the young ladies of our Kingdom? The first annual Young Ladies' Tea Party will be held at Springfest this year, on Saturday afternoon (time to be announced as the autocrat firms up his schedule). All young ladies ages ten and under are invited to a Tea Party where we will (of course!) drink tea (and other nice cool age appropriate beverages), nibble on pastries and other dainties, share in stories, create a craft, and generally revel in the joys of being little girls. At least one parent will be asked to attend with each little girl (sisters, of course, do not need one parent "each"), although if two parents wish to attend we welcome both moms and dads alike:) Please join us for an hour of little girl fun as we show our daughters how wonderful being a young lady in our Society can be!
