Museum to host Victorian Girls’ Day

GENEVA — The Geneva Historical Society and the Seven Lakes Council, Girl Scouts of America, will sponsor a Victorian Girls’ Day from 1 to 4 p.m. Aug. 3 at Prouty-Chew Museum on South Main Street.

Young girls (those entering grades 1, 2 and 3) will learn more about life in Victorian times, including clothing of the time, etiquette, games and needlework. Hands-on activities and a snack are part of the day.

Girls will see and try on reproduction 18th and 19th-century dresses, play Victorian games, and make their own calling cards.

The $10 per girl fee includes registration with the Girl Scouts, a snack, and all supplies and materials. Reservations are required by calling 789-5151.
