  3. American Girl Program: "Meet Gabriela McBride"

    September 22, 2018, 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM @ Riddick's Folly House Museum

    Meet Gabriela McBride! Gabriela has grown up surrounded by the arts—dance, painting, music, and theater. But poetry is becoming her art form of choice, for good reason: she struggles with stuttering and poetry helps her words flow more freely. Although Gabriela is a bit quiet, when she does speak, she is sharp, honest, and funny. But can she learn to harness the power of her words and her creativity to help save her beloved community arts center from being torn down? There will be 3 sittings: 10am, 11:30am, and 1pm. Space is limited and reservations are required. Donations welcome. Ages 5 and up are welcome. Call for reservations at 757.934.0822 or email riddicksfolly@verizon.net, beginning 14 days before the event.
